Your Baby’s Health

by Dr. Stephanie Louie on June 27, 2014 · 0 comments

We all know how delicate a baby is. Now imagine the stress of the birth process upon a tiny baby’s spine. Think about trying to squeeze through a tunnel in a contorted position for hours on end. That’s the birthing process for most of us, which, while completely natural, can put tremendous stress on a baby’s spine. Many of our adult spinal problems can start out at birth. A newborn’s health and the health of their spine are intimately related. It is well documented that even a so called ‘normal’ birth places tremendous stress on the body and is the primary cause for misalignments in the spine that can put pressure on the nervous system.

A baby’s nervous system controls their amazing development and must be working its best.  Babies are designed to be healthy and vital all of their life and misalignments in the spine limits the expression of life potential. The great news is that chiropractors are specialists that correct the usually silent but debilitating misalignments.

You might be wondering how a chiropractor may be able to adjust a baby! I see many babies for wellness care in my office and it takes a different skill set to be able to adjust a baby’s developing spine. Have you ever gently pressed on a ripe tomato? Well, this is exactly how I adjust a baby! Their nervous systems are extremely delicate and only need a small amount of pressure is needed to relieve them of any misalignments in order to maximize their full potential of life.

Dr Stephanie Louie, a native of Victoria, is a chiropractor with a family practice that has a focus on prenatal, infant and pediatric wellness. When she is not with her patients you may be able to find her outdoors spending time with her family exploring Vancouver Island and all its beautiful treasures.  To learn more about Dr Louie please visit www.DrStephanieLouie.com
