A recent study reported that, of 2001 moms who had infants receiving chiropractic spinal care, there were statistically significant improvements in all aspects of the infant behaviours studied.
Some of the results included: Improvement in feeding problems; Improvement with sleep issues; less excessive crying; fewer problems with sleeping on their back; less infant pain, like colic; improved neck range of motion, like reduced torticollis; and better time in the tummy position.
These are awesome, positive changes! What’s even more cool is MOTHERS THEMSELVES also reported they experienced improvement in: depression, anxiety, and a increased sense of joy in motherhood
The results of this study are observational in nature, which of course has its limitations. The reason I write about it here is that it mirrors exactly what I see, day in day out, in clinic.
One of my patients, who brought her 7-week-old colicky infant to see me, wrote “[she] is a totally different baby after getting adjusted. I can actually connect with her and enjoy being a mom for the first time”.
Please feel free to share this with at least one mom, who is struggling with her infant or is looking for strategies to enrich their child's healthy development. To find out more about chiropractic care for you or your children, please visit www.ElevateWomensHealth.ca/chiropractic.
