New Research on Reflux, GERD, Constipation & Chiropractic in Infants
Many people are surprised to hear that Dr. Michelle specializes in seeing little babies and toddlers.
Some may question why someone that young would need a spinal adjustment.
These people may not be aware of the application and the goal of chiropractic, or understand the forces upon their little bodies during the pregnancy and especially birth process.
They may have the common misunderstanding that chiropractors align the spine to address back pain.
While we often do see improvements or resolution in spinal pain when one gets their spine properly aligned, pain relief isn’t actually the main goal of the chiropractic approach.
We aim to align the spine with gentle and specific adjustments due to the intimate relationship of the spine with the nervous system, the master system of the body.
The nervous system is the lifeline of the brain to the body.
Over nerves, the brain is able to regulate all functions of the body, from heart rate and blood pressure to digestion and mood.
When spinal misalignments place stress or tension of the nervous system, the regulatory signals get distorted between the brain and the body.
When this communication gets compromised, the brain can’t adapt and function properly for the situation because it has incorrect information on which to make decisions.
Yes, it may be pain from the structural compromise or compensations to it, but it may also present as indigestion, constipation, headaches, high blood pressure, anxiety, and the list goes on.
Dr. Michelle sees many kids that are not showing symptoms at all and their parents want to keep it that way, getting their infants checked from birth in order to ensure they are growing interference free.
When babies do come in to our office with symptoms, often it is related to constipation, diarrhea, reflux, colic, latching issues, etc.
Neurologic dysfunction will present in varied ways depending on the person, which part of the nerve system is compromised, the extent to which the nerve system is affected and how long the interference has been in place.
It stands to reason that if a spinal misalignment producing nerve interference caused the symptom or dysfunction, than reduction of that misalignment and therefore that nerve interference, the problem should improve or resolve.
No wonder why so many infants and adults alike in chiropractic offices everywhere see resolution of such a wide range of conditions.
A recent paper from the Annals of Vertebral Subluxation Research discussed the new literature on reflux, GERD, and constipation in infants.
As the author McCoy outlines, “Numerous case studies and some clinical studies are revealing that there is a relationship between abnormalities in the spine, the nervous system and the various health challenges that infants experience.”
Research quantity and quality is continuing to stack up in favor of chiropractic, but more than that, REAL PEOPLE experience these results every day.
Don’t let everyone else benefit from natural solution to their ailments while you and your loved ones suffer.
