After birth, a woman’s body undergoes many amazing changes again. Chiropractic adjustments can help keep the spine in proper alignment as her body restores from giving birth. Shoulder pain and cervical misalignments caused by continuous looking down at her baby can be relieved through chiropractic care, as well as any headaches or fatigue from sleepless nights.
Through chiropractic care, babies can benefit from a well-functioning nervous system and properly aligned spine from day one. Nervous system interferences in infants can cause colic, irritability, poor sleeping habits, or trouble breastfeeding. When a baby cannot latch properly, there may be a communication problem between the brain and the suck-swallow reflex. A gentle adjustment can get the joints moving, clearing the interference, which opens the communication pathways that allow the tongue and throat muscles to work properly.
