Spinal misalignment can begin in utero. The birth process, both vaginal and caesarian, can cause stress on an infant’s spine. Studies suggest that colic, unusual crying, poor appetite, constipation, ear infections and erratic sleeping habits can be signs of spinal distress. Imagine the number of times a child falls as they learn to walk, ride a bike and play sports. Ignored, these problems may worsen until they become more difficult to correct as a teen or an adult.
Chiropractic treatment is gentle, safe and non-invasive care for children allowing their body to body to function optimally. Typical pressure applied during an adjustment could be compared to the pressure used to test the ripeness of a tomato or avocado. We love seeing families with infants and small children in our office. What a gift to give our children, removing the interference along to spine safely and naturally allowing them to grow and learn optimally!
