Birth: The First Potential Stress Point:

The miracle of birth can sometimes leave little bodies with unforeseen challenges. The birth process, even under normal conditions, is frequently the first cause of spinal stress. After the head of the child appears, there is often a significant amount of twisting and pulling on the baby’s neck, lifting it up to receive the lower shoulder and then down to receive the upper shoulder. This creates significant stress on the spine of the baby.

Here’s why the early years matter:

  • Critical Brain Development: The first two years are crucial, with over 60% of brain development happening after birth. This makes early intervention key in addressing potential spinal issues affecting nervous system function.
  • Hidden Impacts of Normal Events: Birth itself, though natural, can involve twisting and pulling forces on the baby’s spine. Even seemingly harmless falls, playful bounces, or rough play can contribute to stress.

Uncorrected spinal stress, even from seemingly insignificant events, can manifest as:

  • Feeding difficulties
  • Head tilt (torticollis)
  • Excessive fussiness and crying
  • Muscle imbalances
  • Developmental delays

Driftwood Chiropractic utilizes Torque Release technique (TRT), a method which has been proven through research to be the most precise chiropractic technique in the world. It is the most up-to date, neurologically-based, chiropractic technique available and all doctors at our practice are Advanced Proficiency Certified!
