BF ICPAThe International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) is an organization created to share knowledge on how chiropractic is not only beneficial but essential for pregnant women, babies and children. They are dedicated to researching the benefits of a healthy, functioning nervous system on development, and how chiropractic adjustments restore balance to our nervous system by eliminating subluxations, or misalignments. Below is an excerpt from their June newsletter.


“Modern birthing procedures, even those with
seemingly minimal intervention, are known to cause
trauma and stress to the infant’s cranium and spine.
In a leading pediatric textbook on manual therapy
for children, one author tells us, “When considering
injuries and dysfunctions of the spine and its
associated structures, the significance of birth
trauma is often underestimated, and the resulting
symptoms frequently misinterpreted.”

In the case of breastfeeding difficulty, as with many
childhood disorders, the cause of the problem often
traces back to undetected biomechanical injuries to
the spine and cranium at birth. The failure to
recognize these biomechanical injuries and their
relationship to difficulty in breastfeeding leads to
incorrect conclusions and therefore, inadequate
recommendations and treatments. Without real
solutions, mothers become discouraged, successful
breastfeeding is not achieved, and women stop
trying out of frustration.”
