How does pediatric chiropractic care work?

When it comes to your baby, you’ll do just about anything to ensure their health and safety. Did you know that chiropractic care does exactly that? Your little miracle is curled inside of your belly for 9 months (more or less sometimes) and they are constantly in a position that isn’t ideal for their bodies. When a child goes through labor and delivery, their bodies go through a lot of trauma and force, as does yours. Chiropractic care aims to reduce that trauma so your baby can be the healthiest possible. 

Many parents don’t know that they can bring their baby to see a chiropractor regularly starting at just a couple of weeks old.

Pediatric chiropractic care isn’t as scary as it sounds. Through gentle yet effective movements, our experienced chiropractors aim to alleviate pain and improve flexibility. The treatment is a lot different than an adults would be but provides the same benefits and results.

What are the benefits of chiropractic care for babies?

Pediatric chiropractic care works to improve the overall health of your child. Professional alignments improve your baby’s sleeping, eating, and breathing. Who wouldn’t want that for their baby? Let’s explore those benefits a bit more:

1. Better sleep

As many parents know, nighttime can be stressful and overwhelming. Babies don’t always sleep soundly through the night, meaning you don’t sleep soundly through the night. An experienced chiropractor can adjust your little one to improve sleep habits through consistent treatment – meaning you can get some extra z’s too!

2. Immunity

Did you know that seeing a chiropractor regularly can boost your immune system? As your baby ages, they become exposed to a lot more things — germs included! Chiropractic treatment can naturally boost their immune system. 

3. Brain Development

Pediatric chiropractic care is a great way to enhance your baby’s brain development. By adjusting your baby, our medical professionals release pressure from their bones, joints, and spine, allowing increased blood flow to their brain, resulting in improved development.
