WHAT IS PEDIATRIC CARE?
One of the most traumatic experiences we will have in life can be from the birthing process. This process, no matter how “natural” can cause nerve dysfunction in the body which can then lead to a deterioration in optimal health. For many babies, birth trauma, leading to nerve dysfunction, can compound common issues such as colic, “allergies”, irritability, difficulties in feeding and attachment, sleeping problems, breathing weaknesses, and neurological dysfunction. If these are not addressed they may develop into problems later in life such as learning difficulties, behavioural issues, digestive issues, ear infections and asthma.
As your baby grows into an infant they will experience general knocks and falls which can also lead to nerve dysfunction and an impaired immune system. Chiropractic adjustments for babies are very different from adjustments for adults. We use only light fingertip pressure to adjust the spine.
“65% of neurological development (ie the development of the brain and nervous system) occurs in your child’s first year. It is therefore imperative to ensure that your baby has every opportunity to maximize their nerve function during this critical period in their development.” (‘Well Adjusted Babies’ Dr Jennifer Barham-Floreani).
