Pediatric Chiropractic

Often times my patients ask me questions like: “Why would a baby need an adjustment?” or “My child doesn’t have pain does he or she need chiropractic care too?” And my answer is always YES and the proper function of your child’s nervous system is very important for their development and health!

​Caring for Infants

 

​When a child is born there is a tremendous amount of stress on your baby when traveling to the outside world. In fact, multiple studies have shown around 90% of newborns suffer from the effects of birth trauma in the cervical spine or neck and cranial areas. This stress can often lead to misalignments in the spine and dysfunction in the baby’s nervous system. This nerve dysfunction can impact the baby’s spinal growth and neurological development.

 

Possible symptoms your baby could be experiencing if spinal stress or nerve dysfunction is present:

  • Colic or irritability

  • Torticollis or head tilt

  • Abnormal head shape

  • Latching difficulties

  • Poor sleep

  • Reflux

  • Delayed developmental milestones (holding up head, sitting

  • upright, crawling)

 

Get your baby checked for subluxation and insure your child has the best opportunity to thrive and develop during this important time.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Caring for Kids

 

Chiropractic care can also benefit the growing child. During the first 5 years of life, 90% of spinal growth occurs. It is important to have your child’s spine checked during this time to ensure proper spinal alignment or correct any misalignment which can lead to various issues in the future such as scoliosis or uneven hip and shoulder heights.

 

Some of the most common issues which improve with chiropractic care in kids are:

  • Poor postures

  • Scoliosis

  • Gastrointestinal stress (IBS, constipation, diarrhea)

  • Scoliosis

  • Bedwetting

  • Poor immune system function (common cold, ear infections, flu)
