The birth process can be one of the most traumatic events in our lives. Even the "uncomplicated" birth can stress a developing spine. The resulting irritation to the nervous system, channeled through the spine, can be the cause of many newborn health complaints.
Colic, unexplained crying, poor appetite, breathing problems, and allergic reactions can often be traced to nervous system dysfunction caused by a malfunctioning spine.
Head support, followed by crawling and baby's first few steps should be followed by chiropractic checkups. if neglected, the bumps and falls during this period of rapid growth may lead to serious spinal deformities later in life. This can set the stage for scoliosis, "growing pains", and a weakened immune system response.
