Benefits of Chiropractic care for new moms/infants

A recent study by Viola Frymann demonstrated that 90% of newborns suffered the effects of birth trauma.  A study by Gutmann examining more than 1,000 infants concluded that approximately 80% had some form of nerve dysfunction. This is of utmost importance, since 65% of neurological development (brain and nerve system) occurs in a child’s first year. During this crucial time, it is vital that the nerve system be healthy so the child can grow and develop to her potential.

What can cause birth trauma?

  • Very short labor
  • Very long labor
  • Failure of the cervix to dilate
  • Use of Pitocin to strengthen/induce uterine contractions
  • Use of forceps or vacuum extraction
  • Cord around baby’s neck
  • Cesarean delivery (due to lack of progress)
  • Pulling or twisting on the head to deliver the infant’s body

What can nerve dysfunction from birth trauma look like?

  • trouble breathing
  • reflux/frequent spitting up
  • irritability/colic
  • difficulty nursing (impaired sucking/swallowing or head positioning)
  • balance issues
  • sleeping difficulty
  • delayed developmental milestones

Chiropractic care can be effective in easing the transition into the post-partem world for both mom and baby.  Ensuring they are both receiving adequate, quality sleep, are forming a healthy breastfeeding relationship, and are as relaxed and stress-free as possible are just some of the reasons to have both mom and baby’s nervous systems evaluated and treated.
