Why Newborns are Coming in for Chiropractic Care In Orlando FL

Chiropractor Orlando FL Dr. Kasey Johnson with Baby

Birthing position impacts tension on baby's nervous system!

If you've experienced a traditional hospital birthing position or watched any movie where the main character gives birth, what you see is a woman laying on her back on a hospital bed.

But why is this the go-to postion in most hospital births? Integrate Wellness Center in Orlando FL can explain.

Chiropractic Care for Newborns in Orlando FL

In the seventeenth century, King Louis XIV wanted to view his maidservants give birth, so he had them placed on their backs, legs in stirrups, and would hide behind a curtain so that he couldn't be seen. The ritual has lasted into current times. And of course it's a lot more comfortable for doctors & nurses for this position, because they don't have to maneuver around into different positions to deliver. But laying down on the back isn't an ideal position for the birthing mom.

How can this impact momma & baby?

This position can cause excess pressure on major blood & nerve centers and puts the hips and pelvis in a less optimal position. Both of these risks can lead to more interventions to assist baby out. This can look like increased drugs during labor, excessive force by manually pulling, use of tools like forceps or vacuum, or emergency c-section.

This is why we want to check every newborn at IWC.

Irritation to a baby's nervous system after childbirth, especially if interventions are involved, can cause discomfort & health issues as a child, but also can affect health longterm as well.

Common signs of nervous system interference in newborns:

  • Colic
  • Irritability
  • Constipation
  • Poor sleeping patterns
  • Difficulty latching & nursing
  • Torticollis

As chiropractors, we are trained to use gentle and safe techniques to help remove nervous system interference.

At IWC, we safely can identify areas of nervous system interference by using the CLA INSiGHT Scanner, which uses advanced thermography and electromyography technology. This technology provides invaluable information on how spinal stress can trigger deeper health issues. Having this information allows us to provide the best possible care for the whole family!
