Babies who are treated for reflux by a chiropractor in the first four months of their lives respond very well to chiropractic treatment. Babies may experience reflux due to immature sphincter muscles or because they have suffered trauma during the birth process.
The neck and back vertebrae of your baby can go out of alignment during the birth process, particularly if your baby's delivery included forceps or a vacuum extraction, the baby was delivered by C-section, or if you needed to push the baby out for an extended period of time. If your baby suffers from reflux, chiropractic care can correct any misalignment your baby may have. Reflux is also common in babies under four months because the baby may have an immature or weak valve between his esophagus and his stomach.
Chiropractic adjustments will help the nerves from the spine to have improved control of the upper valve of the baby's stomach and will correct any misalignment suffered during birth. The technique to adjust a baby is very gentle and you should see an improvement in your baby's condition within two or three visits to a chiropractor.
Older children and adults who are treated by their chiropractor for upper back or neck problems may find the treatment will also help relieve reflux. If you have not considered chiropractic treatments for your reflux, you may be surprised to find spinal adjustments will ease the discomfort of reflux by keeping your nerve supply to the esophagus and stomach in good condition.
Chiropractic care may mean you can take fewer drugs or no drugs at all to control your reflux condition, meaning a happier, healthier family.
