Meet this happy little dude Lennox! He wasn't always the smiley, relaxed little guy you see here. We caught up with his mom Chelsea, this month and asked her to share why she makes regular wellness chiropractic care a priority for Baby Lennox.
I chose chiropractor care for my baby because we were struggling through the newborn phase, I had seen my family doctor and pediatrician and they had just said "you have a fussy baby". I wasn't satisfied with that - my baby seemed uncomfortable and restless all the time and he wasn't my first baby so I knew it wasn't "normal".
Education is power and one thing that we place a high priority on for our clinic members. You will often find us out in the community doing lunch and learns for local businesses, collaborations with mom groups and we host FREE Monthly Workshops to help our community learn more about the benefits of our unique Neurofunctional approach to Chiropractic Care. Teaching people about the amazing benefits of chiropractic and how it actually works is what our parents rave about. If you want to learn more about how this worked for Lennox, we invite you to register for our upcoming "Beautiful Babies" Virtual Workshop on April 24th at 7:30pm.
We know there is A LOT of mis-information about Pediatric Chiropractic care out there and that the idea of bringing your baby or child for an adjustment can seem pretty scary. So we asked Chelsea to describe what a chiropractic appointment looks like for Lennox:
An adjustment appointment for us always starts with a little discussion of how our week has been, sleeping, eating, digestion etc. before starting our adjustment. The Doctor will typically work in the cervical area to release any tension and work on any torticollis. She then typically moves to the hips and sacral area to relieve any tension and realign, then baby will work on tone strength through assisted lay down to sitting position.
While baby is being adjusted the Doctor is always very thorough in explaining what she is doing and the rationale behind it, she always answers our questions. We are always happy with the care provided to our baby and our baby is always happy during adjustments
At our clinic we take Neurofunctional Approach to chiropractic and use state of the art scanning technology to measure the exact points where your baby has nervous system interference. Since we know that the nervous system controls and coordinates ALL other systems and functions of the body, parents report a wide variety of symptomatic improvement in their babies under chiropractic care. We asked Chelsea to describe the changes that she noticed once she started baby chiropractic with Lennox:
Where to begin! We have seen so many benefits from chiropractic care. Before starting chiropractic care my baby was very tense at all times with clenched fists and seemed very unhappy and uncomfortable. Since starting chiropractic care his hands are relaxed he is happy, smiling, and babbling, we are seeing longer hours of independent sleep, better digestion, less congestion.
The car seat used to be a nightmare for us. Our baby would scream for entire car rides he can now tolerate the car seat for longer periods of time without fussing. We used to not be able to put our baby down or he would cry he now happily plays on his activity mat and with his toys.

We know moms are the best resource for other moms, so we asked Chelsea what advice she would give to other moms considering baby chiropractic care and here's what she said:
Do it ! We have seen so many benefits from chiropractic care it is well worth it. If I have another baby they will be getting chiropractic care as soon as we are discharged home, it's the best thing we could have done for our son and it truly changed the newborn experience for us. We now have a happy and relaxed baby. Which makes for a happy and relaxed mom!
