Chiropractic Care for Children : Infant Chiropractic Care
January 15, 2020
One question, I get asked when we’re talking
about kids in Chiropractic is. Why does a child need to get chiropractic care? They
don’t hurt or they don’t have problems. They don’t have low back pain, they don’t have
neck pain. So why does a child need chiropractic care? Well, if we look back to the birthing
process. We know that a baby comes for being in a warm environment for nine months. All
of a sudden, has to get forced through a little opening, that it really doesn’t fit through.
As the head starts to come out, the doctor now can grab a hold of the head. And studies
have actually shown that the doctors pull with about a force of about ninety pounds
of pressure. Now that’s nothing to fault the doctors. But that’s just what’s happening.
That’s how they help and assist the birthing process. Now I don’t know about you but I’m
not sure I’d want my child’s head to be pulled. With ninety pounds of pressure, with a child
that cannot hold their head up, yet. Or cannot move around like they’re supposed, like they’re
going to, down the road. So one way that their spinal column becomes, can become misaligned,
is through the birthing process, itself. Just going through the small opening. And then,
as a doctor assists the baby, as it comes out into the world.
