When you think about Chiropractic care, you're likely not thinking about booking an appointment for your baby. But you'd be surprised to learn how much this treatment can benefit your infant, starting as early as the newborn stage. From relieving tension to improving sleep, here are four ways Paediatric Chiropractic care can benefit your baby:
Paediatric Chiropractic Care Can Help Ease Colic
Chiropractic care is extremely efficient in treating symptoms of colic, and reflux in infants. A 3-month long scientific study conducted in 2012 established that chiropractic care may help treat colic. In the study, fully 94 percent of the subjects experienced improved colic symptoms. With proper adjustment, a Yoga Mamas Paediatric chiropractor is able to relieve the pressure your little one is experiencing bringing colic relief for your baby.
Paediatric Chiropractic Care Can Help With Baby Sleep
Many times pain or discomfort in the spine can cause babies to be so uncomfortable that sleep becomes interrupted. Infant chiropractic care may help to ease discomfort and help settle babies sleep patterns allowing baby to sleep better.
Paediatric Chiropractic Care Can Help With Breastfeeding
Issues with latching or maintaining a latch could be a result of your baby feeling pain or discomfort with the feeding position. A Yoga Mamas Paediatric chiropractor can gently correct misalignments at the top of the neck so your baby can more easily turn their neck, making latching on both sides more comfortable. Jaw and neck tightness can be relieved by gentle yet effective chiropractic treatment on your baby. Our chiropractic team also works alongside our lactation consulting team to help you overcome breastfeeding challenges.
Paediatric Chiropractic Care Can Help With Baby Flat Head Syndrome
Have you noticed that your baby tends to look to one side more than the other? This preference may indicate that your baby has tight neck muscles or restricted joints. Neck restriction can also lead to flat spots at the back of the head. A Yoga Mamas Paediatric chiropractor will gently adjust your baby’s spine relieving pressure. This is done incredibly softly with only an extremely light amount of pressure applied. Bringing in your baby to see a chiropractor will help loosen any neck tension and help encourage proper range of motion.
