CHIROPRACTIC FOR NEWBORNS

Before they are even born, babies can develop structural imbalances and nerve irritation due to their positioning in the tight space of the womb. The transition of birth can be intense. No matter the way your baby arrived earth-side, huge forces are placed on your child’s delicate neck, skull, and spine.

 

Specific, gentle chiropractic care and infant massage after birth can help relieve trauma from intrauterine constraint, labor, and delivery. Crainosacral therapy helps improve head shape and may lead to better quality sleep. Click here for more info on crainsacral therapy, and here for more info on infant massage.

CHIROPRACTIC FOR BABIES & TODDLERS

As your little one continues to grow, sit, crawl, stand, and walk, they also fall, bump, and bonk. On average, toddlers fall 28 times every day. Big growth and change is happening during these early years: The spine grows 50% in length, and 65% of neurological development occurs in your baby's first year of life. 

 

Chiropractic check-ups ensure that your child’s nervous, muscular, and skeletal systems are functioning efficiently during these important developmental milestones. 

CHIROPRACTIC FOR SCHOOL-AGE & TEENAGERS

As your child grows, minor injuries from running, jumping, and climbing can occur. Children face the pressure to excel in school, sports, and extracurricular activities. They spend hours sitting at a desk, and carrying a heavy backpack, both of which place significant strain on their spinal discs and curvatures.

 

Chiropractic care supports your child’s spinal health and ability to adapt to stressors throughout childhood and adolescence. Bodywork such as chiropractic adjustments and soft tissue therapies may also help your teen cope with hormonal changes and relieve  discomfort related to her menstrual cycle.
