Chiropractic Care for Infant Sleep
Effects of Sleep Deprivation on Babies
For infants, quality sleep is essential for their early growth and development. But for babies who suffer from poor quality sleep or sleep deprivation, there are several complications that can arise and affect their development.
These complications can include:
- Feeling fatigued and difficulty waking up
- Becoming more accident prone, clingy and active during the night
- Having poor emotional regulation
- Hindering cognitive and brain development
- Stunting physical growth
- Developing sleep apnea, which can increase the risk of SIDS
While these problems can keep infants from getting quality rest and potentially affect their long-term development, many of them can be resolved by pediatric chiropractic adjustments.
Pediatric Chiropractic Care to Help Infant Sleep
We offer pediatric chiropractic care as a gentle, safe, and natural treatment option for improving your child’s sleep.
Insufficient sleep is often caused by improper alignment of the cranial bones, neck, and spine, as well as headaches, neck pain and other types of physical discomfort. By adjusting the locked elements in a child’s body, we can alleviate discomfort, improve relaxation and increase blood flow to help your child sleep better.
