Not only are we specialized to help those that are pregnant, but we also can help kids! We don’t often think about how traumatic it is to be born, but babies experience any number of physical complications during the process of entering the world. Many of these arise from spinal misalignments, including difficulty with breastfeeding, asthma, colic, digestive problems, and even behavioral issues which result from pain, discomfort, and sub-optimal nervous response.
Pediatric chiropractic care can improve your child’s function, helping to improve mobility, digestion, and even increase immune system responsiveness. This is done through correcting spinal misalignments which increases nerve system function and communication, and can reduce the risk for illness and infant health disorders. It is as gentle as testing if a tomato is ripe! So gentle, most babies sleep right through the adjustment!
At Restoration Chiropractic we love to see the office full of happy and healthy children!
Some Conditions We Can Help With
Latin for 'twisted neck,' this condition typically occurs after a difficult childbirth and can make it hard for your infant to fall asleep and stay asleep. Most babies don't feel any pain from this condition, but it's relatively common. Chiropractic care can usually help to solve the issue
Ear infections are common in infants and toddlers, and they usually cause problems with everyday activities like eating, drinking, sleeping, and lying down due to pressure fluctuations and the accompanying pain. When left untreated, the fluid buildup can result in a ruptured eardrum. If you want to treat the problem without the use of drugs and antibiotics, finding the right chiropractor and seeking proper care is essential.
Colic is a condition that causes an infant to cry when seemingly unprovoked and with no known medical cause. That being said, many professionals believe there to be a connection between chiropractic care and effective colic treatment. To explore treatment options, you'll have to work on finding the right chiropractor that specializes in pediatric care.
Plagiocephaly is another common condition that affects almost half of all infants today. It's sometimes called 'flat head syndrome' and is characterized by just that -- flat or misshapen spots around the infant's head. This condition has a number of causes, but without proper care, the head can remain permanently misshapen into adulthood. But quality chiropractic care can alleviate this condition and restore head shape.
