Stressed Out Newborns Receive Spinal Realignments

You've made your first post-delivery pediatrician appointment, your lactation consultant appointment and your six-week postpartum checkup appointment, but have you scheduled your lil one's post-delivery chiropractor appointment? In what must be the first of its kind, a New York City chiropractic office is offering realignments for babies just hours after exiting the womb.

Citing the stress the birthing process places on the spine, spinal cord, and cranium, a NYC doctor offers "loving, tender adjustment" to help release any tension that the wee one holds onto after delivery. While lying on her mama's lap, a doctor will apply a bit of pressure to the spine, helping the baby to relax and sleep more comfortably.

Do you think the stress of birth requires a newborn chiropractor visit?

everyone I know who has been to a chiropractor continue to go, there is never a stopping point which concerns me. i am sure there are cases where it is necessary, but honestly- babies have done fine until this point and this isn't a "new" form of medicine..

I was skeptical initially as well, but now take both of my daughters for chiropractic adjustments. We have a family plan, so it doesn't cost any more than if just my husband and I went. Their immune systems really benefit from it as well.
