CHIROPRACTIC CONSULTATION FOR
BABIES & TODDLERS IN BIRMINGHAM.

We begin by taking a thorough history of your baby, including factors such as maternal history, labour, feeding habits, sleeping habits, and developmental milestones, as well as a family history and history of other factors which can influence your child’s health.

This will be followed by a comprehensive physical examination consisting of: orthopaedic, neurological, and developmental evaluation. It is this thorough approach to examination that allows us to identify the factors that may be influencing your child’s health.

If further testing is required, we can refer your child swiftly and efficiently to an appropriate specialist for such investigation.

WHAT WE COMMONLY SEE WITHIN
BABIES & TODDLERS IN BIRMINGHAM.

Parenting newborns and infants can be challenging and stressful, especially when things don’t quite go to plan. Many of the concerns parents face relate to important public health issues for infants.

Crying is an issue that affects all families with newborn babies. However some babies can cry excessively and inconsolably, with little help available from standard medical care. Research has shown that there is a correlation between difficult births and excessive crying, sometimes known as infant colic. It has been suggested that difficult births can lead to musculoskeletal problems in infants. This is particularly the case for infants who cannot sleep comfortably lying on their back (supine).

Other health issues that parents may express concern over include:

$

Infants that are finding difficulty with breastfeeding, which is protective against morbidity and mortality in both infant and mother.

$

Infants unable to sleep comfortably on their back (supine), which is protective against Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

$

Infants unable to turn their head equally both directions, which can later result in an asymmetrical head shape.

WHAT WE COMMONLY SEE WITHIN
CHILDREN & TEENS IN BIRMINGHAM.

Approximately 7% of children visit primary care for musculoskeletal problems each year. Population and school based studies have demonstrated that pain is a common feature of childhood and that the majority of that pain is of musculoskeletal cause. In children, pain is the most typical symptom of a musculoskeletal problem, although other additional symptoms include limping, stiffness, muscle weakness and fatigue. A review of population-based studies in children and teens estimated the prevalence of musculoskeletal pain to be between 8.5% and 40% (recall periods from one week to six months) with the knee, back and neck suggested as common sites of musculoskeletal pain.
