Failure To Thrive In Galesburg IL

Chiropractic Galesburg IL Crying Baby

When a baby does not keep pace with normal height, weight, and head circumference it is referred to as Failure to Thrive in medical language. Many times the cause of this cannot be determined by classic medical testing. Many drugs are prescribed to no avail.

Chiropractic care in Galesburg IL is the most sought after alternative for these children. It is estimated that up to 30 million visits per year to chiropractors are accounted for by pediatric patients. What is the logic here? Does the child have a back problem?

The truth of the matter is that nerves of the spinal cord are in the back of a person (adult or baby). Digestive organs are directly fed by many of these nerve roots. Long labors of delivery and early trauma to the child can lead to spinal joint fixations which affect nerve flow to digestive organs. If a young child cannot digest and poop, look out, the entire family suffers.

What Does Failure To Thrive Look Like In Galesburg IL?

Failure to Thrive usually shows its ugly head with the following issues:

  • Weight loss (no growth)
  • Poor latching onto the breast
  • Irritability (excessive)
  • Poor sleep
  • Constipation
  • Apathy or a Listless expression
  • Weakness in the audible crying
  • Vomiting (excessive)

These symptoms and behaviors reveal the fact that digestive organs simply are not functioning well!

Something has to be done to clear the spinal nerve for proper signaling. This is where chiropractic comes in. Gentle adjustments of the locked-up spinal joint can make all the difference in the world. When the baby begins to poop regularly and sleeps hours on end, then, and only then will the mother gain freedom from sheer exhaustion! Tears of JOY may ensue.

I want to guide you to a journal reference that dedicates itself to this very topic. The publication is called the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health. It is filled with case studies that outline the benefits of chiropractic care to babies and young children. Dr. Matthew McCoy, chiropractor and public health researcher, is also a good reference for this topic.

When you have reached your wit’s end with an irritable baby, do consider CHIROPRACTIC. It has helped millions.
