IS CHIROPRACTIC CARE APPROPRIATE FOR CHILDREN?
Many chiropractors, including myself, treat children!
In fact, some parents bring their children in for visits shortly after birth. I adjusted all 3 of my kids within hours of being born and as you can see, my son Logan has always loved it!
As your child grows, chiropractic adjustments can help to improve their coordination, attention, digestion, and even immune function. Since the immune system is controlled and regulated by the nervous system, chiropractic adjustments can help to boost the immune response.
Active kids can knock their spine out of alignment as they run, jump, or fall. Kids who log plenty of screen time often experience neck pain or aches. So, yes, chiropractic care is appropriate for children!
WHAT BENEFIT DOES MY NEWBORN GET FROM AN ADJUSTMENT?
Growing in a confined space and going through the birth canal can be restrictive to say the least!
Adjustments can help calm the nervous system which in turn can help the body function at it's best. Adjustments have been shown to help with colic, promoting sleep, enhancing digestion and bowel movements, boosting the immune system and improving neurological development.
ARE CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENTS DURING PREGNANCY GOOD FOR MOM AND SAFE FOR BABY?
Chiropractic adjustments can decrease labor time and make delivery faster and easier for mom and baby.
The Webster Technique is a safe and effective treatment to release ligament and pelvic restrictions so that the baby can move freely in-utero which will put them in the best position for birth.
