Is your baby crying excessively, unable to sleep, not settling or only prefer breastfed on one side? If that’s the case, our experienced chiropractors at Lakeside Chiropractic might be able to help. Chiropractic care for newborns is a safe and gentle treatment for your baby and numerous parents have found relief after bringing their babies to us.

What Is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a healthcare profession that utilise gentle yet firm manipulations to promote self-healing of the body through restoration of the body’s normal nervous system function. It is a natural intervention. A chiropractic consultation usually involves gentle stretches, mobilisation, cranial work and reflex techniques. Please that note that a chiropractic treatment for infants are not the same for the treatments used for adults. In most cases, a chiropractic treatment for infants will not involve joint manipulation or any treatment that would potentially harm the baby in any way. Instead, a more gentle and soft pressure will be applied on the baby. Therefore, parents don’t have to worry about their baby getting injured from chiropractic work. If the baby is crying during the treatment, it is most probably a result of being placed in a position that they are not used and the crying will end as soon as they become accustomed to it.

How Can Babies Benefit From gentle Chiropractic Treatment? 

  • Boost recovery after birth
    The birth process could be traumatic for both baby and mom whether it was after a C-section or natural birth. It could affect the baby’s nerve in the body and causes pain. Gentle pressure on a certain key areas on the baby’s body can help relieving the tension and strain, as well as resolving any nerve problems. 
  • Enhance the immune system
    Studies have shown that chiropractic adjustment can improve the body’s ability to release disease-fighting cells to the required areas by correcting any misalignment of the spine. The body’s immune systems are made up of lymph nodes, thymus and spleen. They are responsible for filtering out harmful bacteria and producing most of the immune cells. Because they are all connected to the brain by nerve running through the spine, any misalignment of the spine might irritate the nerve and therefore affect the immune system. 
  • Reduce general fussiness
    Sometimes, parents might have difficulty pinpointing the exact reason why their babies are being fussy and easily irritable. Babies tends to register all stimuli as having the same intensity as they are still trying to distinguish different levels of pain intensity, therefore, even a slight muscle ache will “feel” like a more intense pain. Babies will get fussy as a result of mechanical restriction in the baby’s spine, which can cause headaches, muscle spasms, increased irritability, sleeping difficulties and excessive crying. A Chiropractor can help by resolve the mechanical restriction of the spine, thus relieving the baby’s pain.
