People ask us all the time: why would babies or children need chiropractic care? The answer is actually quite simple! Everyone has a spine after all, so everyone can benefit from a nervous system that is functioning as it should. There are many issues that are suffered predominantly by children that chiropractic care can help with including asthma, ear infections, torticollis, reflux, and colic.
So chiropractic can help with issues common in children, but is it safe? The answer is a resounding YES! Pediatric chiropractic care is an effective and gentle form of treatment that is absolutely safe for children. Our chiropractic team will fully explain each analysis and the methods of treatment we suggest that is best for each patient. We will also answer any and all questions before the first adjustment to ensure the comfort of both the parents and child.
By starting chiropractic care young, you are providing your family with a strong understanding and foundation for wellness. Throughout a woman’s pregnancy, the childbirth process, and as the child grows, a lifestyle including chiropractic care offers benefits for the greater health and well-being of your family. The IPA initiated a ground-breaking study on both the safety and effectiveness of pediatric chiropractic. The initial results are remarkable in their findings, and show that chiropractic care is safe for children. Parents reported three unexpected improvements in their child’s care, including improved attitude and behavior, improved sleeping, and improved immune system function.
Chiropractic care for children is often sought after an injury of some sort. In additional to physical stress, we encourage parents to remember that chemical and emotional stress can also affect their child’s nervous system, so spinal checkups are important during all phases of life. We are dedicated to helping our patients reach optimal health and wellness!
