Is Your Newborn Developing Properly?

What’s there to know about a baby developing?  

They just sleep, cry and eat and lay around...right?  

Well, come to find out, there’s actually really important indicators and milestones that need to be met for your baby to develop properly - neurologically speaking.  This becomes imperative considering that your child’s brain grows to 80-90% of its adult size by just 2 years old.  In the first year of life, not only do your baby’s brain cells form hundreds of thousands of connections, but their cerebellum grows 240%!  

There are lots of things that clinicians look for to determine how your baby’s nerve system is developing but here are just a few things that you can check at home to see if your child needs to get checked for nerve interference by a NeuroStructural Chiropractor:

Pregnancy can be a whirlwind full of hormonal, biomechanical, neurological and musculoskeletal changes which can feel less than ideal…

One of the most common results of those changes is low back pain.

With that being said, here are 5 tips to help reduce discomfort during pregnancy so that you can start to focus more on how incredible your body is that created your baby and doing everything possible to nurture their development:

7 Reasons Why Pregnant Women Choose Structural Chiropractic

Navigating through pregnancy, especially as a first time mom, can seem like a daunting process. 

After all...you do have a baby growing inside you!

In the 1970s, the average age women had their first child was around 24. Today, that has jumped to 28 years old. 

There are a lot of reasons for this shift, and one likely explanation is for moms-to-be to learn more about the journey of pregnancy beforehand to allow for the best possible experience. Plus, with ever-rising prices, gaining financial stability also takes longer than it did 50 years ago!

With that being said, more mothers than ever are seeking natural solutions to the discomforts of pregnancy and all the other radical physiological changes that happen during the process.  

Here are 7 major reasons pregnant women seek structural chiropractic:

The Number One Barrier Preventing You From Reaching Health Restoration

“Take two ibuprofen every 4-6 hours and apply heat and that should take care of it.” Does this sound familiar at all? Yeah, I thought so.

If you’re like most Americans, you’ve likely been told something along these lines as you went in to see your general physician at some point in your life.  Usually followed by you saying to yourself, “thank goodness my doctor knows what to do to fix this,” and, “thankfully it isn’t anything worse.”  
This thought is exactly what is keeping you from reaching your true health potential.  We have been indoctrinated in the idea that health comes from outside the body, and that it is the doctor’s job to restore your health.  This is where doctors, all doctors, have failed their patients.  The number one thing preventing you from restoring your health is not taking responsibility for your own health in the first place.

To be a real doctor, of any health discipline, is to teach you how to be responsible for your own welfare within their own discipline.  When you become actively engaged in health promoting habits and doing things at home on a daily basis, you will be liberated from the suffocation of relying on a doctor to “give you” your health back.

At Intero Chiropractic, we recognize that your body is intelligent and is always striving for health.  We cannot possibly improve on the perfection that is the wisdom that created your body from just two cells.  That wisdom is, however, limited by the materials it has to work with (your structure), as your body is constantly being bombarded by chemical, physical and emotional stressors.  Our goal is to provide a practical solution where we can reach your health goals together which consists of you doing certain things on a daily basis so that you can be the true champion or your health.

Watch the video below to learn about what we implement in your care so that we can work toward Structural Restoration and an Optimized Nerve Supply.
