One of the things practice members often ask me about their children is how to help their babies sleep better. There are many reasons that children don’t sleep well and it often depends on the function of their nervous system. Often, at birth there is trauma to the upper cervical spine causing a vertebral subluxation. This misalignment of the upper neck area can interfere with proper communication between brain and body, thus not allowing a baby to rest comfortably and interfering with ‘baby sleep.’
One of the advantages to Chiropractic care is finding a Chiropractor that has extensive experience working with babies. In our office, we often see babies with colic, reflux, irritability, trouble sleeping etc….It is almost always linked to distress on the nervous system. Gentle correction of this misalignment or subluxation can allow a babies body to heal more naturally and comfortably. Parents come in every week who have had their babies on medication, done countless medical interventions to help with sleep to no avail. It is only once the correction of cause is made that the body, any body, baby or adult will be able to heal naturally.
A babies body should be healthy, an egg and a sperm created 70 trillion cells, if the interference is removed, the body will heal. BJ Palmer said it best, ‘ the body needs no help, it just needs no interference.’
