How can Chiropractic help my child?
Chiropractic care can help babies/children struggling with:
- Ear infections
- Delayed milestones
- Digestive issues
- Poor immunity
- Trouble sleeping
The purpose of Chiropractic care is to restore and maintain normal body function and ensuring your child’s nervous system is functioning at its highest capability! The object of the Chiropractic adjustment is to reduce stress on the nervous system that are caused by spinal misalignments. We gently adjust those spinal misalignments, allowing the body to perform optimally and improve the potential for healing and wellness.
Is it safe for my child to get adjusted?
Yes! Chiropractic care is safe for children of all ages. Adjustments on children look very different than adjustments on adults, they are very gentle. Imagine the pressure you would use on an avocado to test if its ripe or not, that is the amount of pressure used to adjust a baby.
How soon can my baby be adjusted?
A baby can be adjusted as soon as moments after birth. The earlier, the better! Even the most natural birthing methods, as well as Interventions such as induction, forceps, vacuum suction or cesareans all put stress on an infant’s skull and spine. The cause of many infant complaints such as reflux, colic, ear infections and sleep disturbances can be caused by nervous system interference caused by spinal and cranial misalignments. 65% of neurological development (development of the brain and nervous system) occurs within the child’s first year and chiropractic care can help their bodies function optimally during this critical time of development.
Children with optimally functioning nervous systems by visiting a chiropractor tend to have:
- Better sleep
- Elevated mood
- Less allergies
- Enhanced performance
- Improvement in behavioral issues
- Less sick days
