Thrive for Life Chiropractic - Retained Neonatal Reflexes
Hard-wired into nervous system (specifically the brainstem) are a number of reflexes which help children survive the birthing process and the earliest stages of life before they develop the ability to make decisions. These are called the ‘neonatal’ or ‘primitive’ reflexes.
As the nervous system matures, the neonatal reflexes in a perfect world take a ‘back seat’ and allow the higher thinking or processing areas of the brain establish control. In some cases, however, the neonatal reflexes will remain dominant (this may be as a result of significant stress such as trauma experienced during the birthing process). This disharmony in the nervous system can result in issues such as learning difficulties, delays in development, behavioural issues and poor coordination.
Specific structural corrections can help the integration of Retained Neonatal Reflexes, thus restoring harmony within the nervous system and allowing children to develop their full potential.
Retained Neonatal Reflexes may also be something that is experienced by adults. Helping their integration may assist in the removal of recurring and chronic issues.
