Who said giving birth is easy
We tend to think that because an infant survived the birth process, that everything is all right. What most people don’t know is that a recent study showed even under ideal conditions, 80% of all babies had birth trauma. With up to 200 pounds of pressure per inch on the infant during the birth process, it’s no surprise that there might be a subluxation. Andrew Towbin, MD reported in a study that 7 out of 8 infants that died of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, had a misalignment of the atlas (the first vertebra in the neck, just under the skull. Chiropractors call this misalignment a “subluxation”.) resulting in the infants death.
“Support your babies neck”
The most common birth trauma is usually strained muscles of the infants neck. At Mulhall Family Chiropractic, Dr. Geraldine uses the latest technology to help asses if your infant has any misalignments that can interfere with your babies ideal growth.
By the way,
babies are never adjusted like an adult! It takes special training to know how and when to adjust an infant. Check the icpa4kids.org website to find a chiropractor who is trained and certified be the International Chiropractic Pediatrics Association.
