Why bring your baby to a chiropractor?
The number of people taking their babies to chiropractic check-ups following birth has grown over the last few years.
We love seeing and helping babies at the clinic.
So what do we do?
The Chiropractor will take a full history and follow this with an intense examination making sure your little one is in good health, before even looking at their spine, reflexes and tone.
We will also weigh and measure your little one and do a developmental screen at specific intervals making sure, their developing at their best.
What does the Research say?
- There is growing evidence that support chiropractic care with improving breastfeeding success rates, by working on the jaw, neck and supporting muscles.
- Research has found that kids treated by chiropractors as babies under the label of “colic” have shown a reduction in the number of tantrums and sleep problems in later years (at ages 2-3), compared to untreated “colicky” children of the same age.
- Whilst there is still a lack of good quality evidence, the general consensus is that a short course of chiropractic care is effective at reducing daily crying time and improving sleep in babies. That basically means a happier baby that sleeps more.
Research on babies is unfortunately limited by ethical issues, but a slowly developing area.
In the meantime, you are welcome to look at our testimonies, and decide for yourself.
