Chiropractic For Infants and Children
Healthy Kids - From The Very Beginning
Keep Your Child Developing at Full Potential with Loving Health
When your baby or child has proper spinal alignment, the brain and body can communicate at optimal levels. The spine is the gateway for communication between the brain and body that - when properly adjusted - allows for the greatest possible expression of health.
Common conditions helped with regular pediatric adjustments include:
- Ear infections
- Immune system deficiencies
- Sensory processing disorders
- Stress and anxiety
How Children Are Affected By The "Three Ts"
Misalignments, or subluxations in the spine, are caused by traumas, thoughts and toxins. Though it's easy to see where adults experience the "Three Ts," you might be wondering how a baby is exposed to and affected by these causes.
- Birth injury (forceps, C-section, induction, vacuum extraction)
- In utero constraint (breech positioning, posterior)
- Physical injury (falls)
- Physical stressors (extended back time, baby carriers)
- Birth (separation, NICU)
- In utero (mother's emotions, conception)
- Parenting (circumcision, attachment, cry it out)
- Birth (antibiotics, steroids, Vitamin K)
- Chemical stressors (cleaners, bath products, vaccines)
- Food (formula/mother's milk, introduction of foods)
- In utero (ultrasounds, hormones, pharmaceuticals)
