Do Infants Need Chiropractic?

You do everything to ensure your baby's health during pregnancy: you eat right, avoid drugs, smoking and drinking, take childbirth classes so you can have a natural, drug-free birth. After the baby is born, you breastfeed knowing that is the superior form of nutrition; you do everything you can to make sure your baby is healthy ---- but have you had the most important part of their health, their spine and nervous system, checked?

Birth Trauma - The First Subluxation:
"The birth process ... is potentially a traumatic, crippling event.... mechanical stress imposed by obstetrical manipulation --- even the application of standard orthodox procedures may prove intolerable to the fetus. The view has been expressed clinically that most signs of neonatal injury observed in the delivery room are neurological...." Towbin A., Latent spinal cord and brain stem injury in newborn infants. Develop. Med. Child Neurol., 1969.

"With the birth process becoming more and more an intervening procedure....the chiropractic checkup becomes even more important to the child's future." Larry Webster, DC, of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.

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." The authors noted that an unhealthy spine causes "many clinical features from central motor impairment to lower resistance to infections -- especially ear, nose and throat infections."

Shaken Baby Syndrome
 Babies are very top heavy. Mild to moderate shaking of a child can result in serious neurological damage since their neck muscles are undeveloped. This damage has been known to occur after playfully throwing the child up in the air and catching him/her. The damage caused is called Shaken Baby Syndrome.

When does a Baby need a Spinal Checkup? There are times in a baby's first year of life when spinal examinations are especially important.

After the birth process.
 When the baby starts to hold his/her head up.
 When the baby sits up.
 When the baby starts to crawl.
 When the baby starts to stand.
 When the baby starts to walk.

"Our children deserve to be treated naturally, not with dangerous chemical drugs and unproven surgeries" Bobby Doscher, DC, director of Oklahaven Children's Center.

Do all you can to give your baby the best possible chance to have a healthy life. That includes childbirth without trauma, avoidance of drugs and medical procedures, and breastfeeding. You have your baby's eyes checked, heart checked, ears checked ---- why not their spine and nervous system

Testimonials

  • "I first heard about Inside Out as a sponsor of the Bolton fall fair. I explained to Dr. Ryan that I was in pain for years and only went for treatment for the pain symptoms and not to prevent them, he invited me to come visit him and since then I have no more pain! I’m learning to improve my quality of life in other areas such as listening to my body and helping it function like god intended it too. Since coming to Inside Out I have learned proper exercising and the advanced seminars taught me how to eat healthier and what my body does with what I give it. If you are a new or old client I suggest you keep going, it will improve your quality of life. Thank you Dr. Ryan for everything you have done for me you are making it possible for me to be walking the beach with my spouse in my 70’s."
