Being pregnant comes with many stressors: what foods you can or cannot eat, what exercise is safe, and all the mental stress of whether your baby is healthy and delivery will go smoothly. All of this stress is common, but it can affect your baby in a negative way when the stress outweighs yours or the baby’s ability to adapt physiologically.

If you overcome your stress and get the appropriate rest and recovery, your body’s intelligence can create balance and harmony. If stress outweighs adaptation, “fight or flight” mode can take over internally and your baby may suffer from the lack of body chemistry balance. These stressors can affect the baby during pregnancy, creating an opportunity for them to experience benefits of chiropractic care after they’ve been born.

Babies have an innate ability to heal and reach their potential at an outstanding rate. Chiropractic care focuses in minimizing neurological dysfunction due to vertebral subluxation that obstructs the ability to function at optimal potential. Chiropractic adjustments for newborn babies are specific and involve minimal pressure allowing children to respond well to chiropractic care.

By providing your baby with the opportunity to experience chiropractic care, you can boost their potential to thrive!

The information in our articles are not intended to diagnose, mitigate or prescribe the use of any technique as a form of treatment for any physical conditions, symptoms or diseases. Directly consult with a qualified health care professional for any chiropractic or medical advice. In addition to the benefits of chiropractic care, one should also be aware of the existence of some risks. Risks associated with some chiropractic care may include soreness, musculoskeletal sprain/strain, and fracture. In addition, there have been reported cases of stroke associated with chiropractic care. Research and scientific evidence does not establish a cause and effect relationship between chiropractic care and the occurrence of stroke; rather studies indicate that people may be consulting chiropractors when they are in the early states of a stroke. In essence, there is a stroke already in process. However, you are being informed of this reported risk.
