Chiropractic and Babies


A young mother asked me, “Why do you see so many babies in your practice? Aren’t you a chiropractor? Do these babies have back pain?” And the answer is no, of course not, and even if they did, they can’t tell me that they have back pain, they’re not speaking yet.

What they do have is a process or an experience they have just gone through which is called birth. Being born is traumatic. It’s traumatic because we know that a force of 70 pounds is put on that baby’s neck when the head is being pulled plus 20-pound feet of torque when the head is turned to the left as it is being pulled. Now think about it. If you’ve held a newborn in your hands, you know how fragile that neck is. What if we put a 70-pound force into that neck? Could that cause a spinal subluxation? Chiropractic subluxation is misalignment of the spine that can affect neurologic function.

Well, mothers bring their babies in because they want to make sure that their babies are healthy. They want them to start out right. And if there are problems in the nervous system, it can hinder development and we’ve realized that a lot of problems we face as adults, health problems, actually originated when we were children, when we were babies. These babies deserve to be healthy. They deserve to start out life properly. That’s why they come in.
