The birthing process can put stress on a child’s cranium and spinal cord, contributing to health problems like asthma, trouble nursing, colic, and ear infections. In fact, studies show that 90 percent of newborns suffer birth trauma, ranging from strain patterns in their cranial mechanisms to severe head trauma. In a recent article, Cole Bradburn, D.O., suggests that the trauma from birth can impact a baby’s spinal growth and development, causing many preventable health challenges.
In the article, he explains many of the reasons why infants need chiropractic care, like allowing a baby to “grow, develop, and function at its highest potential.” Other benefits include optimizing the nervous system, boosting immunity by maintaining a healthy nervous system, and providing proper alignment for a rapidly elongating spine.
