How can our clinic help your child? Our therapists love treating newborns all the way to adolescents. Newborns all the way to pre-teens experience many different issues related to growth. Our Chiropractors are specially trained to work with babies and kids to help ease them through the “growing pains” of youth.
We love treating kids
and welcome any questions you may have about your little one’s health issues.
We help with issues such as:
- fussiness related to movement restrictions
- neck tension/torticollis, or preference to face one direction
- discomfort in certain position
An example of a pediatric treatment
Chiropractic adjustments performed on infants are actually very different than those adjustments performed on adults. We have modified and very gentle techniques we use with our little ones. We use very light fingertip pressure on a baby’s spine – imagine the pressure you would use to test the ripeness of a tomato. We may also address any muscular tension by gently massaging the muscles. We Help You Stay Healthy.
Some reasons that parents will bring their infant in to see us include issues with discomfort related to digestive difficulties and/or constipation, difficulties breastfeeding, poor sleep, fussiness or simply for a general check-up. Issues may arise due to the physical stress your baby has gone through during the birthing process. Past the infancy stage, many parents will continue to bring their children in for various reasons.
One reason is for general checkups as the child goes through developmental milestones. Also, their child experiences various minor traumas related to kids just being kids. In a non-emergency situation, chiropractic care can be a great option for your child to keep their growing bodies moving well.
