Dr. Annie feels that it is extremely important to have your child checked for subluxations as soon as possible after birth. She checked and adjusted her own children only a few days after they were born!
Subluxation is a misalignment or lack of motion within the spine that results in stress and ill health in the body. The birth process is a very common cause of subluxation. C-sections are especially notorious for putting immense pressure on the neck of a newborn. Chiropractors are the only doctors trained to detect and remove these subluxations. Removing these subluxations will help to ensure that your newborn starts his or her life in the best possible way.
As children continue to grow, their spines undergo many forms of trauma as they learn to walk and crawl, play, and become involved in sports. It has been said that a child undergoes enough falls in one day to put an adult in the hospital. Many children respond extremely well to chiropractic care because their bodies have great recuperative powers and their nervous systems are very resilient.
