Should my baby get adjusted?
You would do everything to ensure your baby’s health right?! During pregnancy you eat right, avoid drugs (even aspirin has been shown to cause problems during pregnancy), avoid cigarettes and alcohol, take childbirth classes, etc. You do everything you can to make sure your baby is healthy, but have you had their spine checked for nerve interference? A specific, chiropractic nerve assessment and checkup can ensure a healthier baby, one with higher resistance to disease and a healthier nervous system.
Unfortunately, we are finding more and more newborns have unhealthy spines. Of a random group study, 1,250 babies examined 5 days after birth, 211 suffered from vomiting, hyperactivity and sleeplessness. Spinal abnormalities resulting in nerve interference were found in 95% of this group. A chiropractic spinal adjustment “frequently resulted in immediate quieting, cessation of crying, muscular relaxation and sleepiness.” The researchers in this study noted that an unhealthy spine causes “many clinical features from central motor impairment to lower resistance to infections-especially ear, nose and throat infections.” In one case history, an 18-month-old boy suffered from tonsillitis, frequent enteritis, therapy-resistant conjunctivitis, frequent colds and earache and increasing sleeping problems. After the first spinal adjustment, the child demanded to be put to bed and slept peacefully until morning. His health returned to normal. One wonders, what would have happened to this child if he never had spinal care? A life of medicine? Of continued sickness? The two medical doctors who authored the above mentioned study concluded that a chiropractic spinal checkup “should be obligatory after every difficult birth” and any spinal stress “should be adjusted. The success of adjustment overshadows every other type (of care).
