Babies may need chiropractic adjustments too

As a new mother you always blame breast feeding problems on yourself. It could just be your baby needs an alignment. "With the birth process becoming more and more an intervening procedure ... the chiropractic adjustment becomes even more important to the child's future," said the late Larry Webster, D.C., of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.

"I started finding the breastfeeding problems due to misalignment of the neck and head bones causing babies the inability to breast feed properly," a Louisiana Chiropractor said.

After the first week of using a painless activator, the mom said she could see the difference.

"His head was a lot straighter on his own," she said. "He actually was sleeping better. He was only sleeping one to two hours, and he started sleeping two to three hour stretches."

Of a random group of 1,250 babies examined 5 days after birth, 211 suffered from vomiting, hyperactivity and sleeplessness spinal abnormalities were found in 95% of this group. Spinal adjustment "frequently resulted in immediate quieting, cessation of crying, muscular relaxation and sleepiness.

No matter what disease or condition you have, you can benefit from a healthy spine. Spinal health can be as important for your overall healing as proper nutrition. Only a chiropractic spinal checkup can tell.

Among the many things contributing to your health: the quality of the air, food and water you take in; how you handle emotional stress; your inherited weaknesses and strengths; your use of drugs; exercise; and relaxation-a healthy spine is absolutely essential. In some people it is a major factor and can make the difference between a life of health, strength and vitality or a life of disease, weakness and disability.
