A Pediatric Chiropractor Can Help Repair Birth Trauma and Boost Childhood Immunity

Chiropractic for Babies in Royersford PA

Many of us in the chiropractic community can’t help but notice the correlation between chronic immune diseases and C-section rates. As C-sections have become more common, chronic diseases that affect immunity and the immune system like asthma, allergies, and IBS have also risen.

While C­sections definitely have their place and are life-saving procedures, their overuse can have public health implications. Researchers in Denmark have looked at the effects of C­section on health over 35 years and have found that cesarean delivery is associated with significantly increased rates of asthma, connective tissue disorders, juvenile arthritis, IBS, immune deficiencies, and leukemia.

No one knows exactly why these conditions seem to correlate with higher C-section rates, but one theory is that by not advancing through the birth canal, infants’ spines may never be manipulated into their correct position, causing a whole host of problems, including the above-mentioned immunity issues.

Prenatal And Pediatric Chiropractic Care Benefit Moms And Babies

Regular chiropractic care when pregnant can make pregnancy more bearable, but it can also help the body prepare itself for labor and delivery. Spinal manipulation can help strengthen mom’s back and restore function, while a special chiropractic adjustment known as Webster’s Technique can help ensure the baby is turned and facing properly, reducing the chances of Mom needing a C-section. Fewer C-sections means fewer babies with ailments that can be traced back to spinal subluxations.

Even when children are delivered vaginally, they might still need a little help getting everything correctly positioned. A pediatric chiropractor can provide very gentle, but extremely effective, non-invasive, drug-free treatments that alleviate many common infant discomforts such as colic and digestive issues as well as chronic ear infections and other immunity challenges.
