Subluxations are caused from birth.
According to Dr. Abraham, Towbin: Latent Spinal Cord Brain Stem Injury in Newborn Infants, 1969, the birth process, even under natural and controlled conditions, is potentially traumatic. During the pushing stage of labor, the spine, particularly the neck, may be injured as the baby is compressed and pushed down the birth canal. As the baby is compressed, the small bones in the spine may be pushed out of their natural alignment. This causes the nerves to become stretched or twisted (commonly referred to as a nerve "pinch"), and the vital communication system is disrupted.

This neurological disturbance is called a subluxation, and it may result in the failure of one or more parts of the body as well as health in general. Subluxations can also foster the onset of sickness and disease as the body weakens.

The Doctor of Chiropractic specializes in the detection and correction of subluxations. Instead of treating the symptoms of the disease, the chiropractor corrects the subluxation so that normal body functions may take place.
Why check babies for subluxations?
According to J.B. Peet: Chiropractic Pediatric and Prenatal Reference Manual. The baby Adjusters, Inc. 1992, Complications of uncorrected subluxations may be serious, resulting in respiratory depression, and in come cases SIDS. Infants who survive and are properly diagnosed for subluxations have a better chance of having the neurological defects ultimately eliminated.
When should your infant be checked for subluxations?
Newborn infants should be checked within hours after birth. Subluxations are a serious threat to your newborn's health. Your child should be checked frequently by a chiropractor to ensure the best opportunity to grow and develop normally.
