Infant chiropractic care
I need to mention here that some babies need chiropractic care right away after they are born. My friend, Kelli, at Family First is so happy to see these little ones. Birth can be difficult on babies especially if their labor was induced or they had to be assisted with vacuum or forceps. Even the most natural births sometimes can produce a baby who needs to be adjusted. Infant adjustments are nothing like adult adjustments. Often times you do not even know that anything is happening. If your baby is unusually fussy or just not content make an appointment with Kelli or a chiropractor in your area. It will never hurt your baby to be adjusted even if they do not appear to need it. Chiropractic care is great for every human being!
