I love my Chiropractor! Yes, before I begin I need to be up front with you. I do actually love my Chiropractor. He’s the father of my child, my best friend, my soul mate, and everything in between. So I want you to consider this first. And…. go!
Now I want you to clear that out of your head and just read this post for what it is. I’m telling you this information because it would feel wrong not to. Nothing to do with my relationship. More to do with my experiences and the fact that I think more people need to know about chiropractic!
Ok, so now that we have that out of the way… why does an 11 month old baby see a chiropractor weekly? I don’t think she has a sore back. She’s not a ‘colic’ baby. She didn’t have an overly traumatic birth. In fact she doesn’t have any obvious symptoms.
I take my baby to get adjusted for the sake of her health & her development. The way I see it, if her body is functioning properly then she is a calmer baby and she is able to just be herself – taking in the world!
Some other reasons that mums, dads and grandparents might take their babies and children to a chiropractor include:
Bumps & falls
Maximise health and potential
Odd head shape
To me, it just makes so much sense to make sure my baby’s body is working properly. She has been to the Chiropractor for many of the above reasons, but more importantly she has been for all the times in between.
I get Evie (and myself) checked by a Chiropractor weekly. If she doesn’t need adjusting then that’s great!
I will continue to do so for the rest of her childhood and I hope it’s something that she chooses to do through adulthood because I want her to get the best out of her life and to be free and happy as every person should be.
I have written this post to link up with a guest post I wrote on Rebecca Dettman (aka Miss Psychette)’s blog. You can read it here but you probably don’t want to jump over there just to hear more of what I say! You DO however want to read what she has to say I promise that you will find every one of Rebecca’s posts entertaining, interesting and exciting! She has a wonderfully quirky way of writing and I often find myself smiling when I read her blog. Have fun!
