When a mother’s egg is fertilized and pregnancy begins, cells start to multiply and divide. The cells first create the brain and spinal cord. From the spinal cord, little branches of nerves begin to spread outward. The combination of the brain, spinal cord and nerves become the central nervous system. Once the central nervous system is in place, buds will form at the end of nerves. These buds are the beginning of all the vital organs such as the heart, liver and kidneys.
The human brain controls every microscopic cell within the body and the brain communicates with each of the millions of cells via the nervous system. This is how the brain delivers the necessary energy and instructions to every part of your body to make it function.
Bones or joints may become misaligned and nerves can become irritated, pinched, stretched or compressed which cause inference in the flow of energy from the brain through the nervous system. When this energy is distorted or blocked, a variety of symptoms will surface including pain.
As a baby starts to develop and continues to grow, an expectant mother is experiencing 9 months of increasing stress on her bones, muscles and joints which can create subluxations.
Our chiropractic care keeps mothers-to-be free from subluxations and the pain and discomfort that are caused by these subluxations.

Baker Chiropractic Care for Infants:
The birthing process can be a traumatic experience as a result of the pulling and twisting commonly performed. This process will often create problems in an infant’s delicate neck and back resulting in misalignments of the spine and subluxations (interferences) in the infant’s central nervous system. The pinching and irritation of nerves from subluxations can lead to a variety of health issues in babies.
Common Symptoms Treated with Chiropractic Include:
- Colic, fussiness and irritability
