Chiropractic for Breastfeeding Problems

Most new moms are aware that breast milk is best for their babies. They know that it aids in development and protects against disease.  But many moms don’t anticipate problems with breastfeeding.  Assuming that breastfeeding is a natural, instinctive process, many women think that the baby will simply take to it naturally.  When that doesn’t happen, mothers may become frustrated and give up breastfeeding altogether.

What these women don’t realize is that breastfeeding dilemmas often stem from joint misalignments in the baby.  The good news is that Dr. Smith can help resolve these imbalances — and prevent them from occurring in the first place.  In fact, a study of 114 infants with trouble breastfeeding found that chiropractic care is highly effective at alleviating breastfeeding difficulties.  All of the infants in the study showed improvements, with a whopping 78 percent experiencing complete resolution of their breastfeeding problems within two weeks (J Manipulative Physiol Ther 2009;32:670-4).

If you have a new baby, or are expecting one soon, make scheduling a visit to our office top priority.  Chiropractic care during pregnancy can help make delivery easier, by ensuring that the mother’s hip joints are in alignment.  Once your baby arrives, chiropractic care can help your baby breastfeed successfully.
