The Facts About Fever

Anything that reflects the slightest thing wrong with a child will cause concern in a parent. A fever, for example, is one of the primary reasons that parents will call their child’s pediatrician.

Sure, that’s reasonable, because if we’re honest we’ll admit that chiropractic is the best way to relieve back and neck pain. However, it might surprise you to know that the very first chiropractic adjustment had nothing to do with either and everything to do with a body functioning properly.

Both prior to and during delivery, an infant has had pressure placed on their neck and spine that may affect the nerve pathways of the spinal cord. A Family Wellness Chiropractor is the only healthcare professional trained to find and eliminate vertebral subluxations and remove nerve interference, which is why more and more parents are having their newborns checked for spine-related problems immediately after birth.
