WHY SEE A CHIROPRACTOR? 

Many parents see Chiropractors for their baby with: 

· Feeding attachment issues 

· Difficulty turning their head to both sides 

· Concerns about head shape or a misshapen head 

· Digestive disturbances and colic 

· Unsettled sleep patterns 

· Repeated sickness/ immune system function 

Parents of healthy babies also choose to have them checked for health and development. 

What does the Chiropractor Do? 

· We assess your babies nervous system; hips, spine and cranial-dural system for interference. 

· We help restore balance and function using very gentle and specific adjustments and also advise on neuro-developmental exercises that can be done at home.


If your spinal dysfunction was manifesting as clumsiness then this is likely to improve with chiropractic care. If your spinal dysfunction was manifesting as back pain then this is likely to get better. If colic or bedwetting were related to the spinal dysfunction, then this may well improve.

RESEARCH

What research has shown in a nutshell is that when our spine is not moving properly this changes the way our brain perceives what is going on in and around the body, the way it integrates other sensory information and the way it controls the body. 

COLIC 

There have been many research studies that have looked at the effect of chiropractic care to help babies with colic. The researchers found that after 10 days excessively crying babies were almost 12 times as likely to cry significantly less if they received chiropractic care compared to babies not receiving care. 

BEDWETTING 

Researchers found that after 10 weeks the children receiving chiropractic care had on average dropped from 9.1 wet nights over a 2 week period to 7.6 wet nights. The control group on the other hand didn’t really change at all, going from 12.1 wet nights before the trial to 12.2 afterwards.
