The birth process can be traumatic for newborns. Having your baby checked for proper alignment can improve growth, development, sleep, feeding and enhance your child’s immune system from the very start. The number of parents taking their children to receive chiropractic care is growing because many spinal problems seen in adults begin as early as birth. Also, the irritation on the nervous system during the birth process can result in colic, difficulty nursing, sleeping difficulty, allergic reactions, ear infections, and developmental delays that can be found to originate from a nervous system stress. In the earliest stages the baby is growing and also learning how hold up his/her head, crawl, stand and walk. This period is very important to assess spinal alignment as the child is developing permanent curves in the spine.

Adolescent treatment is available to help address any discomfort associated with growing pains or misalignments as a result of activities. Adolescent children that receive regular chiropractic adjustments are able to participate in recreational activities longer with less injury and have stronger immune systems through the cold seasons when exposure is high in schools. Sports physical evaluations are available year round for activity your child may be involved in.

Chiropractic care is safe and effective at all ages. Adjusting techniques are modified for children and personalized to the child’s size, weight and stage of development. Parents often report after treatment noticeable improvements and feel that their children have a greater level of health when under chiropractic care. Because chiropractic treatment does not involve the use of injections, etc. children are more at ease during treatment and look forward to subsequent visits.
