Children and Chiropractic
The birth process may be one of the most traumatic events that your child will ever experience, even if you try to decrease the trauma by using “natural” birthing methods. The pulling and twisting a child endures while exiting the birth canal can cause subtle misalignments of the spine which put pressure on the parts of the nervous system that coordinate breathing and digestion.
Since these functions are important for optimal health, it is no surprise that colic, decreased appetite, and unexplained crying in babies can often be traced back to a problem with the spine and nervous system. It is also no surprise that these conditions often respond well to chiropractic care.
The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association has some terrific articles on the benefits of chiropractic for kids check them out with the following link:
At Christopher Chiropractic we see the benefits of taking care of a spine at any age. Dr. Elizabeth loves to take care of children. She will modify our appointment times, adjustments and recommended plan of care to be specific to your child's age, weight, schedule and spinal problems.
