Amazing Benefits of Chiropractic Care in the Journey of Motherhood12/14/2023
Chiropractic adjustments for babies, often referred to as pediatric chiropractic care, have gained attention as a potential way to support infant health and well-being. At Origins Birth Dallas, our in-house pediatric chiropractor, Dr. Kim, offers adjustments to all ages, and pays special attention to the babies. Here are some reasons why parents might consider pediatric chiropractic adjustments for their little ones:
Birth Trauma and Stress Relief:
The birthing process can be physically stressful for both mother and baby. Therefore, babies may experience trauma or strain on their delicate spine and neck during delivery. The wonderful Origins’ chiropractors may assess and provide gentle adjustments to relieve any stress or strain.
Colic and Digestive Issues:
Some parents seek chiropractic care for their babies if they’re experiencing colic or digestive problems. Origins’ chiropractors may use gentle techniques to address misalignments that could contribute to the discomfort.
Sleep and Feeding Problems:
Sleep disturbances and difficulty with breastfeeding can be concerning for parents. Chiropractic care might be considered if there are concerns that musculoskeletal issues are contributing to these problems.
Supporting Healthy Development:
Proponents of pediatric chiropractic care recommend regular adjustments and agree that it can help support a child’s overall health and development thus promoting proper spinal alignment and nervous system function.
Some parents seek chiropractic care for babies with recurrent ear infections. Chiropractic care can help improve drainage in the ear canal and reduce the frequency of infections.
At Origins Birth Dallas, our chiropractors are Webster-certified (more about that in our next blog) and also use gentle chiropractic care for babies. They have experience working with infants and children and can explain their approach on the potential benefits and risks to parents. If you are an established patient with one of our chiropractors during pregnancy and need an adjustment for you or baby during labor or after birth, then they will do what they can to attend your birth and assist you with your needs.
To schedule an appointment for you or your child with Dr. Kim at Native Chiropractic and Wellness please contact Origins Dallas at 469-291-9129!
This is part one in our two part series of why we recommend chiropractic care for our Origins mamas and babies. Additionally, our next blog post will be on chiropractic care during pregnancy, birth and postpartum.
