The Trauma of Birth

Being born is one of the most traumatic things that ever happens to our bodies. Even in a natural childbirth with no interventions, tremendous force is applied to the baby’s neck and spine. Other types of deliveries, including C-sections, forceps or vacuum-assisted deliveries, can cause additional trauma on tiny bodies. Chiropractic care can help babies’ nervous systems return to their optimal state, so they can grow and develop as they should.

Our Approach

Dr. Sandra offers a range of very low-force techniques that are safe and gentle for babies and kids, including Activator Methods®. Like adults, kids are subjected to tremendous stress in the world today—including emotional stressors, chemical or environmental stressors, and physical stressors. Chiropractic helps remove that stored stress from their nervous system, so they can feel terrific and function optimally.

We take our time with babies and kids, explaining everything and building rapport with them, so they feel safe and comfortable with us before we begin any adjustments. Because children don’t have decades of accumulated stress, we often observe improvement quickly.

Your child’s care plan is specifically designed for their needs and condition, and our goal is to help them achieve overall wellness. We offer well-baby adjustments to help your growing family start healthy and stay healthy.

Helping Avoid Childhood Issues

At Lakewinds Chiropractic Center, we specialize in getting kids healthy and keeping them that way, whatever their age. We can adjust babies immediately after delivery, to give them the best possible start in life and help prevent common childhood conditions. Chiropractic is effective in helping prevent or improve many issues, including

  • Sensory processing
  • Anxiety
  • Colic
  • Concussion
  • Depression
  • Digestive issues
  • Ear infections
  • Stress
  • Reflux
  • Difficulty nursing
  • Difficulty latching

Chiropractic can also help your child reach developmental milestones more readily, by keeping their nervous system free of interference that hinders transitions.

Help with Breastfeeding and Latching

Breastfeeding and latching can be one of the toughest challenges that moms and newborns face. There are many reasons why latching and nursing may be difficult and it is important to find the source of the problem to make a correction for a positive breastfeeding experience for mom and baby.

At times breastfeeding may not be possible, Dr. Sandra and Dr. Addison are knowledgeable about different formula and dietary options to ensure babies nutrients and feedings needs are met. They are aware of food sensitivities and alternative options to decrease bloat, digestive sensitivities, and colic when switching to formula feeding.
