Birth is probably one of the toughest events we undergo as humans. A baby's body has to squeeze through a small birth canal to be born. In doing so, the baby's head in particular will absorb much of the shock and the soft bones will yield slightly allowing it to travel down the birth canal. Most babies cope extremely well with the process and emerge contented, happy and able to feed, sleep and grow normally. However, for some recovery can take longer, especially those who have a particularly difficult entry into the world, and those babies who show signs of discontentedness such as fractiousness, feeding problems or continuous crying.
All of these could indicate that there is a misalignment in the baby's skeletal system and that the baby is uncomfortable as a result. Mc Timoney Chiropractic is especially helpful in the treatment of these misalignments due to the gentle and subtle nature of the technique.
Most children easily shrug off the rough and tumble of daily life. As life progresses, however, there are many incidents which can lead to niggling discomfort, poor concentration, an inability to sit still and also more specific problems such as back or neck pain, migraines and headaches.
These childhood problems can be a result of a difficult birth, the numerous bumps, falls and tumbles that are an inevitable part of childhood, poor posture, carrying heavy bags to and from school and sitting in ill fitting furniture.
The simple bumps and tumbles associated with growing up can often cause misalignments of the skeleton. In addition, carrying heavy bags, playing sports, sitting on ill fitting furniture at school or playing for hours on end in front of a computer in the wrong position can lead to problems such as headaches, back and neck pain.
