Chiropractic Care After Birth

The need for chiropractic care can begin as early as birth.

The need for chiropractic care can begin as early as birth. As many of us are aware, the birthing process can be quite physical for both mother and child.

Along with natural birth imparting mechanical normal stressors to both mom and baby, C-sections can often result in torticollis since the baby doesn't go through the birth canal.

With natural birth, babies develop their neck muscles as they push through. When this process is bypassed, some infants experience delayed cervical muscle activation, which results in the head being stuck to one side and often times colic ensues.

The quickest resolution to this is chiropractic care. Spinal care should begin at birth, as the twig is bent so grows the tree!
