My daughter was quite fussy. The adjustments were very gentle; he used a little spring-loaded device that was gentle on certain spots. She was less fussy and more relaxed for quite a while.

I love our Chiro! I saw her while pregnant. Little man wasn't even 24 hours old when he saw her the first time. I really think the adjustments were good for him. She is super gentle. She does adjustments by hand and you would never know she was even doing anything except she tells you exactly what she's doing and why. She puts gentle pressure on the place that is out of place.

We go to a regular chiro but she does birth and up. Maddox had mild shoulder dystocia during birth and for a few weeks after I noticed him favoring and leaning to one side. We took him in and after one visit he was so much better. He started not leaning as bad, when we got home he filled his diaper(it had been 2 days so it might have been a coincidence) and slept for 3 hrs! He had been cranky and uncomfortable . Took about 2 months to completely straighten him up. I wish I had taken him at a week old instead of a month

Yes. Our pediatrician actually recommended one to us when she noticed our son was curved laying down. Our chiropracter was very gentle. He did small adjustments and showed me a few exercises to straighten him out at home. I totally believe in chiropractics after that experience (and several others).

Oh and btw. Our son was pulled out with a suction causing the bad alignment.

Ditto, verbatim.

I don't know what shoulder dystocia is.. but when ariana was born, her right arm was totally limp... it took two weeks or so to get back to normal.

He tried to come out shoulder first, that's what dystocia is. Kind of messed him up,
