Children can benefit from pediatric chiropractor care! Irritations to the neuromusculoskeletal system can begin before baby even comes out into the world.
Positioning in the womb, the experiences mom is having while growing her baby, as well as the stresses placed upon baby during birth (natural or cesarean) can influence the development and structural alignment of baby’s skeletal system.
This same skeletal system protects baby’s precious nervous system (specifically the brain and spinal cord) that controls every single function our body performs. This is why many parents have their newborns checked by a chiropractor right away!
As the baby grows throughout her first year of life, she is learning how to hold her head up, crawl, sit, and stand, which are essential to help her form her mature spine that she will carry with her the rest of her life. It is at these developmental milestones that a chiropractic examination would be recommended for optimal health and wellness as well.
Many parents bring their child to the chiropractor to help with conditions such as infantile colic, ear infections, constipation, spitting up, breastfeeding difficulties, and asthma.
Some parents have reported that their child does not get sick as often when he or she is under regular chiropractic care, which means fewer days away from school!
Chiropractic care for children is gentle, safe, and effective. The doctor’s care is based on the child’s developmental stage and can vary between gentle pressure with the doctor’s fingertips (enough to indent the skin of a ripe tomato) to using a hand-held tool called an Activator.
The most important thing to remember is that the chiropractor is not treating the disease a child comes to the office with, but is reducing spinal restrictions to improve overall neurological function which in turn allows their body to heal naturally as mother nature intended.
