Have you ever wondered why chiropractors see newborns for chiropractic care? Birth trauma happens in nearly all newborns but often goes undetected. . Traumatic Birth Syndrome or TBS in a condition in which the spine is injured during or shortly after the delivery process. This can occur when the head, neck or any other part of the spine and pelvis have been pulled and twisted during the birth process. Additionally, If extraction aids were used such as forceps, vacuum, and or by caesarian section. All of which can result in the damage or interference of the nervous system. The birth trauma causes a vertebra to move out of its normal alignment creating pressure on the nerves. The brief pediatric check-up is not designed to detect possible “hidden damage” that a chiropractic exam would discover. Early detection is the key to preventing potential pain or discomfort in the future.

Chiropractic care can help manage, treat, and reduce symptoms related to the conditions listed above. The Dr. will educate you about how chiropractic care can effectively treat these conditions in detail.

This will gently restore mobility to spinal joints. A child’s spine generally responds faster compared to an adult’s spine.
