Acorns to Oaks: Growing a healthy baby Part 1

Are you having a baby? There’s often a lot of talk about how hard childbirth is for mums (FYI- you might find this helpful!)  Whilst this is undeniable, it’s also a physically exhausting, strenuous task for baby too and we know that babies and children are just as likely to experience pain as adults.

Fortunately, children have an incredible capacity to recover from these stresses, and generally respond incredibly quickly with the correct care.  So how can chiropractic help?  Chiropractic care can promote the relaxation and release of restrictions and held patterns in body structures and is incredibly gentle (the amount of pressure used is no more than you would use to check if a tomato is
ripe!) This is mainly because a baby’s spine is already so supple that very little pressure is required to have an effect.

The care we provide to children at Acorn Health is incredibly gentle and incorporates elements of sacro-occipital technique, cranial work, developmental exercises and other techniques, depending on what is required for your child!

Why do people take their baby or child to a chiropractor?

– Breastfeeding problems
– Sleeping problems
– Feeding problems
– Strains that may have occured during birthbaby feet chiropractic paediatrics health Emsworth
– Crying
– Delayed development

What causes these problems?

These symptoms may be caused by stress on the child’s body systems caused by:
– Constraint or restriction whilst in the womb (common in multiple births)
– The birth process
– Falls and accidents
– Modern lifestyles (slouching, use of mobile phones and iPads, heavy schoolbags, lack of exercise…) For more on this, please visit this blog.

What can I do to help?

We want mum and dad to be involved too! It’s not just how we help your little one that will be beneficial, it’s the tools, tips and techniques  you recieve during the examintaion that help too. From exercises to help with balance and coordination, to positioning techniques that can help you avoid “flat head” syndrome, we want to give you the tools you need to grow your tiny little
acorn into a strong, healthy oak!
