New born baby at Green Chiropractic

New born baby at Green Chiropractic, Certified Pediatric Chiropractor in Omaha, Ne.

Your newborn baby can experience physical stress during childbirth which can cause things to be “just not right”.  Issues such as digestive problems, colic, reflux, difficulty with breastfeeding, torticollis, abnormal head shape, irritability, constipation (to name a few) can all be caused by dysfunction in the nervous system. Fortunately, these issues can be addressed by taking your little one to an Omaha Certified Pediatric Chiropractor such as Dr. Johnson at Green Chiropractic.

It’s safe for newborns to receive chiropractic care. Dr. Johnson uses soft pressure to make gentle spinal alignments to help restore normal nervous system function and promote the body to heal. These adjustments aren’t painful as very little pressure is used with a pinky finger.

Here are the benefits of taking your newborn to Green Chiropractic, an Omaha Pediatric Chiropractor:

  1. Chiropractic supports their development 

99% of babies are born with spinal misalignments due to how they were positioned during pregnancy (intra-uterine constraint) and during labor. Your baby’s brain grows 2.5-3 times its normal size  and their cerebellum grows 240% in size in the first two years of life. By 2 years old, his/her brain is 80-90% of adult volume. By age 6, 90% of your baby’s nervous system will be formed. Correcting spinal dysfunction early allows for proper neural development.

      2. Chiropractic boosts their recovery after birth

The birth process can affect the nervous system in your newborn’s body. Chiropractic adjustments for babies involve gentle adjustments in specific areas that can help ease tension and strain on their nervous system. As their spine starts to move properly, this can can help calm colic or reflux,  improve breastfeeding/latching issues, improve sleeping difficulties and get bowels moving. Chiropractic care for babies addresses the health and function of the nervous system allowing for proper development of the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractic for babies does not involve adjustments adults may be used to.

      3. Chiropractic can ease colic symptoms 

No one know what causes colic. However, many authorities in health believe colic originates in the gut. There is evidence that baby chiropractic adjustments significantly improve colic symptoms. A 3-month long scientific study conducted in 2012 established that chiropractic care may help treat colic. In the study, 94 percent of the subjects experienced improved colic symptoms. Another study demonstrated that chiropractic care may actually work much better than medications. The two studies can be accessed in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics. One reason to work with the best Omaha pediatric chiropractor, Dr. Johnson, for colic is that we use natural treatment methods.  Our Omaha pediatric chiropractor, Dr. Johnson, offers chiropractic adjustments for colic babies to restore function in your baby’s nervous system.

We’ve seen many parents whose babies cried excessively stop crying within minutes of our treatment. Once we adjusted the spine, releasing tension in the baby’s spine, crying almost always stopped. It can sometimes take just once to a few visits or more. All babies are different.

     4. Chiropractic improves their immune system

Your child’s spine affects their immune system. Since the nervous system runs through the spine,  misalignments can cause the nerve pathways to get irritated which impacts all systems in the body, including the immune system. By making gentle and soft spinal adjustments, your little one’s body boosts releasing disease-fighting cells, improving their immune system. Asthma and allergies symptoms can often be eliminated with gentle spinal adjustments. 

     5. Chiropractic makes them less fussy and irritable

Your little one may be fussy and irritable. Identifying the exact reason that might be causing them to feel that way can be challenging. Their fussiness could be the result of restrictions in their spine a chiropractor calls subluxations. Subluxations can lead to sleeping difficulties, headaches, and more. Chiropractic adjustments can help with spine problems and make them feel better. A baby or young child cannot articulate discomfort. Discomfort comes out as colic, irritability, sleep disturbances, poor coordination, nursing on one side or latching issues, abnormal shaped head, and missed milestones. In the older child, spinal misalignments signs can be behavior issues, sensory seeking, or clothing issues such as tags, sock, shoes, and waist bands. How many of us have had a child who didn’t like the way their socks felt or had to have the tags cut out of their clothes? 


The bottom line is:  IF SOMETHING DOESN’T SEEM RIGHT, get them CHECKED!

Correcting your child’s spinal misalignments through chiropractic care offers many health benefits, improving their  overall well-being. When searching for a chiropractor for your little one, look for one who is a certified pediatric chiropractor.
