Chiropractic St Paul MN Babies Have Spines Too

Birth is a stressful process! It's stressful not only for the mother but for the baby as well. 90 pounds of pressure are placed on the baby's neck as it comes out the birth canal, which may easily misalign the bones in the baby's spine. How do you think you would be able to handle 90 pounds of pressure on your head and neck?? I'm guessing not too well!

Infant Chiropractic Care In St Paul MN

Back To Wellness Chiropractic & Nutrition has had the pleasure of adjusting babies within the first few weeks after their stressful birth processes! These gentle and effective adjustments help babies digest better, grow better, sleep better, and a multitude of other benefits! Ear infections and acid reflux can also be helped and even prevented through regular chiropractic care at our St. Paul MN office!

Adjustments to baby's spines are gentle and may often include the use of an activator, which is a tool that gently taps the bones in place to take the stress off the nerve system. Children's spines are like branches of trees. If the branch is bent it will grow in that direction. If a child's spine is bent, it will grow in that direction as well.

These misalignments of the spine, aka "subluxations," may stress the baby's nerve system and lead to less health in general. The thing is, however, is that these misalignments may not show themselves to the parent, as only 10% of the nerve system is for pain detection. And even if a baby would be in pain, he or she cannot really communicate the situation very well to his or her parents.

If these misalignments sit silently for the baby, it may result in the following health concerns I see in my St Paul MN, Lilydale MN, Mendota Heights MN, and the surrounding communities' babies and children:

  • Ear infections
  • Colic
  • Constipation/Diarrhea
  • Acid Reflux
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Feeding difficulties (including preferring to feed on one side versus the other)
  • Allergies
  • Frequent colds/sicknesses
  • And more

So what is a parent to do?? Well, much like how you schedule "well-baby" visits with a pediatrician, think about scheduling a "spinal well-baby visit" with a wellness chiropractor. That way your baby can get the best possible start in life!

P.S. Don't forget mothers' spines as well! All sorts of subluxations happen from giving birth and feeding a baby too!
