Babies & Kids
More parents are seeking chiropractic care for their children because research shows many health challenges seen in adults began as early spinal problems from birth.
One of the most common reasons parents seek care for their child is some form of trauma. Trauma can result from anything as small as learning to walk and crawl, falls on the playground, or even the birth process itself. These traumas create subluxations that can result in immediate pain and visual symptoms or even hidden symptoms that can lead to more significant health challenges down the road. Chiropractic adjustments detect spinal injury from these traumas, and early detection and correction can help avoid many of the health complaints we see children develop in the future. Pediatric adjustments are gentle and safe and can help prevent future health challenges. Proper spinal alignment and nervous system function is vital to maintaining your child's health!
Chiropractic adjustments for kids have been shown to correct the underlying cause of multiple symptoms. Colic, breathing challenges, nursing/latching difficulties, ADD/ADHD, ear infections, acid reflux, flattening of the head, asthma and digestive issues can result from misalignments in the spine. That's only naming a few!
The Birthing Process
Many birthing methods can stress an infant’s spine and developing nervous system. During labor, the spine is exposed to trauma as it is forced through the birth canal. Prematurity, breech delivery, surgical birth, and forceful traction during the birth process are known to cause trauma to the spinal cord and brainstem. Even a natural vaginal birth can be stressful on a baby's developing spine. Babies can be adjusted within seconds of birth and early adjustments help set the foundation for a healthy future.
