Helping Babies Sleep with Chiropractic Care
If you have kids, or have ever been even just around a baby, then you can understand how important a good night’s sleep is…for both the baby and the parents. Having to take care of a cranky baby can be one of the most exhausting things that a parent can experience. A lack of sleep can have a profound effect on an entire family’s health and well-being.
Please listen for these sorts of phrases from your friends who are parents, and let them know that we may be able to help them with proper chiropractic care for their child:
“My baby will not stop crying!”
“My baby will not stop grunting, and he always seems uncomfortable.”
“My baby is fussy throughout the night and I have not been sleeping at all! I am exhausted!”
Last week, the father of a 4-month-old boy told me that choosing chiropractic care for his infant has been the best decision he’s made in a long time. Now that his baby is sleeping better, both he and his wife, who both work full time, are finally sleeping, too.
One case report* discussed 16 infants with acid reflux and colic who all found relief after undergoing upper cervical chiropractic care for vertebral subluxation.
Parents with babies and young children are a great referral to us. We do soft and gentle adjustments to help them feel and function better. It’s a wonderful feeling knowing that we can make a positive difference in the lives of not only our smallest patients, but their parents as well!
