Chiropractic Care for Babies & Infants!!

The infant spine is usually developed by the end of pregnancy. However, what occurs during the time of birth and months after can affect normal spinal functioning. Labor can be very traumatizing, along with any other significant unsupported movement in the spine. For example, a fall from a bed, sudden stops in automobiles, and other sudden movements unsupported by head and neck.

How Can Parents Recognize Childhood Spinal Problems?

Some can be obvious to recognize and some may be more difficult for parents to recognize. However, parents should look for signs that could indicate spinal problems for their child:

Common indicators of spinal problems for their child may include:

  • Child's head tilted to one side
  • Restricted head or neck motion to one side
  • Disturbed sleeping patterns
  • Feeding difficulties for a very young infant
  • Difficulty nursing at the breast on one side
  • Persistent ear aches
  • Sore throats
  • Colic
  • Bed-wetting
  • Growing pains
  • Constipation
