Chiropractic Helps Get Babies Back On Track After Falls.

Posted by Naturopath Katherine Maslen

I wanted to share my experience with one of our chiropractors recently. My daughter, Luna, is 10 months old and had her first ever bad fall a couple of weeks ago.  To my horror she stood up on the edge of the bed and fell backwards and hit her head hard on the tiled floor. This was terrifying. As is common when babies take a hard head knock (especially on the base of the skull) she started to projectile vomit and needed to be taken to emergency to get checked out.

Thankfully after a few hours of observation we were sent home and Luna was given the all clear. The next morning I noticed that Luna had lost her balance – she was taking quite a few steps before and standing a lot, and suddenly she seemed to lose her balance just getting from sitting to crawling.

Naturally – the first thing I did was make an appointment with our chiropractor Dr. Tressa. Luna has been seeing Dr. Tressa since she was born and I had heard lots of positive stories about her treatment of babies with similar issues. On examination Dr. Tressa found that there were a few areas that were blocked up, most likely due to her fall. She gave Luna some super gentle treatment and said to give it 24 hours before I may notice any changes. The next day I immediately noticed improvements – for the first time since the fall Luna could stand up. She was still a bit wobbly but over the course of the next few days (and another treatment) she was back to her old self.

Luna is now walking everywhere! When your child goes backwards in their developmental milestones it is really worrying and I am so pleased that chiropractic could help her. Every now and again you’ll see some bad press about chiropractic for children but it couldn’t be further from the truth. In my experience, chiropractic is a safe, gentle and effective treatment for babies and children.

Thank you Dr. Tressa!
