Our infants and children experience far more stresses than we realize, starting while they’re still in the womb. This stress helps set off a chain of events that tend to be precursors for many childhood issues.
The Three T’s
Everyone’s central nervous system perceives and adapts to stress, especially infants and developing children. Chiropractors refer to the causes of stress on the central nervous system as “T-stressors” or the “three T’s”:
- Trauma (physical stress)
- Toxins (environmental stress)
- Thoughts (emotional stress)
Common stressors we see in infants and children include:
- Stressful pregnancy
- Birth intervention
- Traumatic birth
- Childhood falls and accidents
- Poor diet
- Fear and anxiety
- Busy lifestyle
- Tech overload
- Impulsive behavior and social challenges
These stressors can cause a host of “warning signs” indicating your infant or child may be experiencing neuro-developmental disorders, such as:
- Colic and sleep issues
- Reflux and constipation
- Difficulty nursing
- Torticollis and plagiocephaly
- Ear infections
- Respiratory infections
- Allergies and eczema
- Motor and speech delays
When your infant’s or child’s central nervous system can no longer adapt to stress, it is due to a subluxation, which is a spinal misalignment causing neurological interference. Subluxation prevents the central nervous system from adapting to these T-stressors. If left unresolved, subluxation will not allow your infant or child to reach their full life potential. Infant and child chiropractic adjustments correct these subluxations.
