Why do we adjust babies?
The process of birth is very demanding and quite a traumatic experience for an infant. During the process of labor and delivery, a tremendous amount of stress is placed on the spine of a newborn. Consequently, the bones of the spine have great potential to misalign, resulting in subluxation. Some common manifestations of subluxation are localized pain, recurrent infections, and difficulty nursing or digesting food. Gentle, specific chiropractic adjustments may help to prevent these problems and allow the nervous system to function at optimal potential.
*Research indicates that 11.9% of infants have upper cervical subluxations as a result of in-utero constraint; prolonged labor; difficult delivery; and inadequate head support. (Biederman, 1992) Other studies suggest that 89% of infants with sleeping, feeding, or digestive disturbances are experiencing subluxations of the spine. (Siefert, 1975)
