From the time a child is born through to puberty, you see the most rapid growth rate. Through all of childhood, chiropractic care for kids helps to ensure healthy and aligned growth as the child gets older.
For babies who go through birth trauma, chiropractic adjustments can help relieve sleep disturbances, difficulty nursing, unexplained colic, and increase the comfort of an infant.
A chiropractor can align your child’s spine to correct any nerve issues that may lead to the problems above after labour and delivery and C-sections.
Some of the infant chiropractic related ailments we treat
Chiropractic for Babies – The adjustment for children and infants is very different from that of adults. A light amount of pressure is applied to the baby with sustained contact (no force), which can look like a gentle massage. Regular adjustments can help your baby relax, reduce fussiness.
Sleep Problems – Infant chiropractic adjustments help your baby feel more comfortable, with less time to fall asleep, deeper sleep and decreased restlessness and this means better sleep for the whole family.
Breastfeeding/Latching Issues – The birthing process can put stress on the head and spine and your baby may have biomechanical injuries that are affecting the ability to breastfeed. Infant Chiropractic addresses the underlying biomechanical causes so you and your baby can continue enjoying the benefits of breastfeeding.
Unexplained Colic – Chiropractic care is extremely efficient in treating symptoms of unexplained colic in infants. One of the main reasons is an immature or underactive gastrointestinal system. This is entirely normal, common and nothing to worry about, but it does cause the baby a lot of unease leading to a fussy and crying baby.
