Why Does My Baby Need A Chiropractic Check-Up?
Birth is traumatic, whether it happened in a birthing pool at home, or an operating room at the hospital. The trauma introduced into a newborn’s neck is significant. Since the spinal cord is protected by the vertebra, any trauma, such as pulling or squeezing through a birth canal can affect everything from feeding to pooping to breathing and sleeping. And since these things are what a newborn does best, their body needs to be operating optimally in order to grow and function in their new environment.
A baby’s first adjustment is very precise and extremely gentle. Since their bones are not calcified yet, it does not take much force, but rather a light contact to correct a subluxation in a baby. Dr. Jeri Anderson, a chiropractor in Sacramento, is highly skilled in evaluating and adjusting all ages of babies and kids. In fact, since children respond so quickly to chiropractic care, it’s one of her favorite things to do! Dr. Jeri is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and has a lot of experience working with children. She has helped kids with acid reflux, cranky temperaments, autism, bed wetting, and many other health challenges, all with great success. Have your baby checked in Dr. Jeri Anderson’s office to give them a jump start in their life.
