Why Chiropractic / Chiropractic for Babies

Even "normal" births can cause trauma to the spine, especially the neck and cranium of the newborn. When forceps, vacuum extraction, or cesarean section are used, the possibility of trauma increases.

Indications that your NEWBORN or INFANT BABY needs gentle chiropractic care are:

  • Inconsolable or excess crying
  • Head consistently turned or bent to one side (torticollis)
  • Assymetric use of their limbs (palsies)
  • Latching on problems or poor sucking during breastfeeding
  • Sleeping Problems
  • Excessive spitting up
  • Gas or Colic
  • Skin rashes and Eczema



Kids Make Great Patients!

Adjusting a child is not a difficult procedure.

In fact, in most cases, a child’s spine is much easier to adjust than an adult’s.

They have not had the long-standing subluxations, their muscles are usually not as tense and they are usually more relaxed in general than adults.

Not only are kids easier to adjust, but also in most cases, they hold their adjustments for longer periods of time and their corrective adjustment plans are almost always significantly shorter than the average adult.

However, with the falls, accidents and the generally active lives most kids experience, regular check-ups are vital.
