Chiropractic Care For Newborns

Chiropractic Care For Newborns

Chiropractor, Dr. Mark Halpern,  discusses chiropractic care for newborns. One of the most stressful times in a human life will be the day when they were born.  Regardless of the method of delivery, childbirth can create a lot of stress on the newborn and can cause muscular tension in the neck of the child.

Up to 80 percent of childbirths result in damage to the neck of the baby.  So after the child is born it is advisable to have your child examined by a chiropractor with experience working with small children and newborns.

Dr. Halpern advises that chiropractic care for newborns is extremely gentle.  If doctors normalize the tension on the nervous system and reduce any strain on the neck, then children are less likely to suffer from problems such as colic, chronic ear infections and headaches.
