I have personally had chirpeactoc work and it has alleviated a tremendous amount of pain. Would I have skipped all that pain if I had been adjusted as a newborn? I was a c section baby because the cord was wrapped around my neck.
An infant/young child's bones are far to soft to be "adjusting". The risk of damage would outweigh most possible benefits. Any serious spinal issues in children are best dealt with by pediatric orthopedists or (in more serious cases) neurologists with developmental physical therapists brought in for aftercare.
Skeletal adjustments in infants are probably not safe. However, infant massage can do wonders for the little one. Infants who are massaged soon after birth tend to have fewer problems with stomach upset, or ailments of the foot and leg such as pigeon toes.
What people don't tend to realize is that bones are pulled out of alignment by muscles and tendons. Having soft tissue treated, especially in tandem with chiropractic treatment, is really best overall.
What does being a section baby have to do with it? A C section is far easier on the baby than being squeezed through a tube far too small, even to the point of deforming the skull.
The cord wrapped around the neck, I think, was the more pertinent information. It can cause neck/spinal injuries even in c-sections. The danger is obviously higher in vaginal births (along with that whole hanging thing)
One of my boys had an extra long cord. You can't imagine how hard it is, in the delivery room, to go through this long series of hee-hoo-hee-hoo's to keep from pushing, when your whole body is screaming Push, Push!! and the OB-GYN is screaming Wait, Wait! - and knowing what might happen.
The doctor managed to get the cord removed from around his neck, and he's a fine, strapping 24-year-old now. And he never needed any chiropractic adjustment. Hasn't so far, I mean.
@Judi B - Definitely don't try chiropractics on a young child. I can't imagine a reputable chiropractor working on an infant, in any case.
Stretching can reduce pain temporarily. Chiropractics are as far as I know, still unproven, along with acupuncture and many other methods people employ.

Would electrical tape wrapped around a lawn mower fuel line stop a leak at least temporarily?
