The importance of breastfeeding your child cannot be overstated. Not only is it beneficial for social bonding, but the immune system boosting benefits are astronomical.
For these reasons, it can be understandably stressful for any new mom who is having difficulty with breastfeeding. Thankfully, there are answers! Research shows that chiropractic care can help.
In 1993, 1000 newborns who had difficulties nursing were evaluated by a chiropractor, who
found that 800 of the children, or 80%, had some degree of TMJ. More important, when these
babies were treated with cranial and spinal adjustments, 99% experienced some relief and increased ability to nurse.
Sometimes the issue preventing you or your baby from nursing effectively isn’t so obvious. Before throwing in the towel, get yourself and your child evaluated by your Kennesaw area chiropractor today. There is hope!
