The Benefits of Babies and Kids Being Under Chiropractic Care

Happy mom with baby

Before a child makes their grand entrance into the world, ideally, we will be checking the mom during her pregnancy to make sure everything is functioning well and she has the healthiest pregnancy. If we keep the spine and pelvis balanced, that makes labor and delivery a little bit smoother or more comfortable. That’s because everything will be moving the way it’s supposed to be.

The Importance of a Postpartum Adjustment

Even with a normal vaginal birth, there can be pressure on the spine and nervous system; that’s why we want to check the baby as soon as possible after birth to remove any interference to the nervous system.

Providing Gentle, Effective Techniques

Our chiropractors have advanced training in prenatal and pediatric chiropractor and can tailor techniques based on the size of your child and what they’ve come in for. Rest assured that we use only low-force techniques yet get outstanding results.

Boost Your Child’s Immune System

While being under care doesn’t mean your kids will never get sick, parents report to us that when their kids receive chiropractic care, they are healthier than their peers. If they do get sick, they bounce back much faster than those who aren’t under care. We tell parents that if their child has a cold or flu, it’s not necessarily a bad thing because it’s strengthening the immune system.

Help for Ear Infections and Other Common Conditions

In addition to fortifying the body’s immune system to prevent colds and the flu, chiropractic also can help with ear infections, which are prevalent in kids. Children get ear infections when the nerves that go to the Eustachian tubes are not draining properly. By gently adjusting a child with an ear infection, the tubes can drain. The best part is no rounds of antibiotics are required. Here are some other conditions that chiropractic can help:

  • Breastfeeding issues
  • Colic
  • Constipation
  • Crawling difficulties
  • Digestive problems
  • Gas
  • Torticollis

Help get your child off to the best possible start in life with chiropractic care. Chiropractic care balances the spine, helps it function well, and allows the nervous system to perform at its peak. As a result, a child’s body can adapt and grow optimally as they go through the various developmental milestones of childhood.
