The Lasting Effects of C-Section Complications on Your Child's Health

Updated: Jan 8

Meet Jordan and Teo, two fraternal twins who have shown us the profound impact that a C-section delivery can have on a child’s health. While Jordan was born vaginally, Teo’s birth required an emergent C-section, setting the stage for a journey that highlighted the long-lasting effects of C-section complications on children’s health. 

Jordan had a much easier time with eating, calming down, sleeping, and overall health as a baby. In contrast, Teo faced difficulties with digestion, sleeping, soothing, and optimal development. He was smaller, more stressed, struggled to gain weight, and had various health issues, including inflammatory reactions and ear infections

At six months old, Teo began suffering from infantile spasms, which were clearly very distressing for his parents. Despite hospitalization and various treatments, he did not respond until receiving precise Neurologically-Focused Chiropractic adjustments, which helped release tension and calm his central nervous system.

So, if you are a parent whose baby was born via C-section and are struggling with various health issues, this blog is for you. So many health struggles in our kiddos today are tied to dysfunction in their central nervous system that started from the very beginning due to a C-section or other types of birth trauma

The Unseen Impact of C-Section Deliveries

Teo and Jordan had identical genetics, diets, and environments, making their story a unique case study. The only significant difference was Teo’s C-section birth, and that difference had a lasting impact. 

  1. Subluxation and Dysautonomia: One of the most overlooked challenges with C-section deliveries is the onset of subluxation in infants’ cranial and upper cervical regions. The immense force placed on a child’s skull, neck, and brainstem during a C-section can lead to subluxations, which disrupts the normal function of the nervous system. 

  2. Digestive Distress: C-section babies may experience digestive issues like colic, constipation, and eczema due to a lack of optimal activation of the thoracic spine and neuromuscular system that controls motility, absorption, and assimilation in infants and children. 

  3. Respiratory and Immune Compromise: Disruptions in the ENT (ear, nose, and throat) lymphatic system, lungs, microbiome, and Vagus Nerve can lead to respiratory issues and immune compromise, such as seasonal allergies and asthma. The Vagus Nerve, a key player in the autonomic nervous system, influences various bodily functions, including respiratory and immune systems.

The Power of Neurologically-Focused Chiropractic

As mentioned, Teo’s journey to healing involved Neurologically-Focused pediatric chiropractic care. This approach not only addresses subluxations but also helps optimize the nervous system, which controls vital systems in your child’s body. Chiropractors with expertise in pediatrics can identify and correct these issues to restore the balance and function of your child’s central nervous system. 

As parents, it’s crucial to trust your instincts and explore all avenues when addressing your child’s health struggles. Start by focusing on the nervous system, which plays a central role in your child’s well-being. When you’ve tried everything else, Neurologically-Focused Chiropractic Care can be the missing link.
