Did you know that chiropractic isn’t just for adults?
Right from childbirth, stress can be placed on an infant’s spine and developing nervous system. Spinal dysfunction results in irritation which may be the cause of many health complaints in newborns. Many childhood conditions can be traced back to stress on the spine and nervous system. Chiropractic care for children offers your family a solid foundation for wellness. It’s much easier to help a child ensure proper health from the start, rather than to “fix” broken adults down the road.
Our office utilizes Pediatric Specific Adjusting; which consists of a gentle, constant pressure applied to a specific site. Adjustments are made using the tips of our fingers, and pressure is usually similar to checking the ripeness of a peach.
Common childhood conditions which may respond well to chiropractic care:
- Breastfeeding difficulties (latch/position)
- Sleep disturbances
- Poor head and neck control
- Poor behaviour and mood
