Have you taken your children to the chiropractor? If your answer is yes, fantastic! If the answer is no, then why not? It is understandable that many parents fear the idea chiropractic care for their babies. As adults, getting an adjustment usually means quite a bit of pressure and popping sounds. It is very important to know that chiropractors do not take the same approach as they do for their adult patients as they do while adjusting babies. Adjustments for babies are gentle and most often, will go unnoticed by the baby. To give you an idea, the pressure used during a pediatric adjustment is equivalent to the pressure one would use to check a tomato for ripeness
Your baby’s spine and nervous system require the same amount of care, if not more, than an adult. It is most beneficial to have your children seen during infancy and childhood as these are impressionable times of rapid growth and development. As your baby grows, learning to hold up their head, sit, crawl and walk are all activities that affect spinal alignment. When there is a misalignment of the spine, the nerves that extend to all of the organs of the body become compromised. When the doctor administers an adjustment, they are simply removing the pressure and nerve stress from the spine so the body can experience life without interference.
Parents often seek chiropractic care for their children for the resolution of a particular symptom or various conditions. While we do not claim to “treat” these conditions, removing interference of the nervous system often times results in relief many impairments.
