Many mothers are realising that chiropractic care can be applied successfully to relieve a range of problems specific to babies and infants. It is very effective for:
- irritable infant syndrome
- poor sleep/settling.
We also often see an inability in babies to turn their head equally to each side. This is termed a ‘head turning preference’ and may be due to birth trauma or back sleeping (see SID’s sleeping guidelines).
Chiropractic care of babies is very gentle and relaxing. Most babies enjoy it and relax completely in the process. A sleeping baby will often continue to sleep through the procedure!
Our approach is gentle and totally safe. We DO NOT use firm manipulation or ‘joint cracking’.
Available at our clinic is Dr Paul Staerker’s “Tender Touch”, a hands-on book that will help you massage your baby to health and happiness.
