Pediatric Adjustments

Our approach to health believes that anyone with a spine can benefit from chiropractic care. This includes infants and toddlers as well as adolescents and teenagers that would be considered pediatric patients. Many people often ask if chiropractic care is safe or beneficial for children, and the simple answer is – yes.

Infants can commonly suffer from conditions such as:

  • Reflux
  • Infrequent and/or painful bowel movements
  • Torticollis
  • Colic
  • Ineffecient nursing

More importantly, as infants start to become toddlers they go through many major milestone transitions including sitting up, crawling, standing, and eventually walking. Since these are such crucial times in a child’s brain development, proper movement patterns – especially spinal movement patterns – are paramount to a child’s overall health.

Pediatric chiropractic care in this stage of life may also help with:

  • Proper gait
  • Falling injuries
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Ear infections
  • Brain development
  • Prevent structural issues such as scoliosis, knock knees, etc.

Since childrens’ spines are continually developing, chiropractic care is generally modified for this purpose with the intent of providing gentle, but effective corrections to underlying structural dysfunction(s). Most chiropractors are specially trained to provide this treatment, and can help make a big difference in your child’s health.

The intimacy of the spine and nervous system may prove to be the reason that many aspects of our childrens’ health often respond very well to chiropractic care, which helps to pave the road for a happy, healthy adult.
