Chiropractic Care and Children

The birth process may be one of the most traumatic events of our lives.

Even so-called ‘natural’ birthing methods can stress a developing spine. The resulting irritation to the nerve system can be the cause colic, unexplained crying, poor appetite, breathing problems, and allergic reactions.

Head support, followed by crawling, and a baby’s first few steps places stress on a child’s spine.  During this period of growth, your child’s spine needs to be examined by a chiropractor for subluxations.  If these subluxations are not eliminated and proper spinal motion is not restored more spinal problems will occur later in life. This can set the stage for scoliosis, ‘growing pains,’ and a weakened immune system response.

Chiropractic adjusting techniques are modified to fit a child’s size, weight and unique spinal problem. Parents often report that their children seem healthier than other kids their age.

Health Begins Before Birth

Children benefit from chiropractic care before that are born, by having a mother who receives prenatal chiropractic checkups. A healthy diet, proper exercise, a stress-free environment, and a chiropractic lifestyle help prepare for a happy, healthy baby.
