We see a lot of mums and dads complaining of headaches, neck pain, shoulder pain, pain in the rotator cuff tendons, tennis elbows and pain in the wrist, all because of the baby carrier.
We all love newborns, but unfortunately, carrying your precious one about in a baby carrier comes with its own set of problems.
And as cute as they are, newborns can create a significant load on different parts of the body.
Lifting them, breastfeeding, putting them in and out of the car and changing nappies are a few of the tasks which can ultimately lead to pains in the neck and shoulder area.
Carrying your newborn in a baby carrier the traditional way, i.e. holding on the handle, puts a lot of unnecessary strain on the neck, shoulder, forearm and wrist. One of our chiropractors, Jasper Hulscher, demonstrates an alternative and easier way to carry your baby in the baby carrier.
This alternative way of carrying reduces the tension and strain on the neck and arm significantly.
Please feel free to contact any of our chiropractors should you have any questions or queries about the technique or when struggling with pains in the neck, shoulder, elbow, wrist or when dealing with a headache.
