Help! My baby is only turning their head to one side...

Have you noticed your baby is favouring turning their head to one side?
Is your baby favouring a breast, causing nipple damage/pain?
Is your baby unsettled and seems to be in pain?
Is your baby developing a flattening (Plagiocephaly) on part of their skull?

After months of being tucked up tight inside the womb as well as the birth process, many babies come into the world with some cervical and cranial restrictions causing them to favour looking one side with their head.

Not only is it uncomfortable for them, favouring a side and avoiding turning both ways may have other flow on effects to your babies health including:

  • Breastfeeding difficulties (difficulty latching/draining the breast)
  • Being unsettled
  • Plagiocephaly (asymmetrical/flat head)
  • Developmental delays
  • Digestive upset/constipation

Paediatric Chiropractic care may be able to help. Our Chiropractors aim is to restore your babies cervical(neck) range of motion by using stretching/gentle mobilisations and low force adjustments so they are able to turn both ways

They may also have associated jaw tightness, mid back restrictions and low back restrictions. Your Chiropractor may also address these areas as they have a direct impact on your babies cervical spine (neck)

Book your baby in for an assessment with one of our experienced Chiropractors.

Paediatric Chiropractic care on babies at Todd Clinics is extremely gentle, safe and evidence based. We use the same pressure on babies that you would use to test the ripeness of a tomato! 🍅
