Irritation to a young person’s nervous system can begin in-utero. The baby’s position in-utero and during delivery (natural or cesarean) can create stress on their nervous system, Even a “normal, healthy” birth can induce 40-50 pounds of pressure on a newborn’s neck and spine.
Some symptoms to watch for:
- Ear infections
- Sleep disturbances
- Tilted head position
- Difficulty breast-feeding
- Constipation or Diarrhea
Any bumps and falls can also create joint dysfunction and nerve irritation to a young person during the developmental years. This may present as:
- Growing pains
- Osgood-Schlatter’s (Jumper’s Knee)
- Difficulty Sleeping
- Difficulty concentrating or staying focused
- Stomach aches, heartburn or indigestion
- Sports injuries
- Skin disorders
