Is Chiropractic Safe for Babies?

Recently, I was honored enough to be invited to the hospital to adjust two new babies. These are two parents that “get it” and understand the importance of a healthy functioning nervous system.  This wasn’t the first time nor will it be the last. As I specialize in Pediatrics and Pregnancy, many people are more open to the idea of bringing their child in for care because they don’t want to give their children medications and they have see how well it is worked for others.

While spinal adjustments may seem too intense for infants, it’s actually quite safe. Chiropractors take special care and precautions with babies, and many believe proper chiropractic care can help infants grow more healthfully and even reduce the likelihood of colic and middle ear infections.

In fact, chiropractic care is sometimes used to treat colic, as well as pain, sleep problems, and musculoskeletal concerns like Torticollis. Chiropractic care can also be preventive. As children are very active, there can be a great deal of stress placed on certain parts of the body. Regular chiropractic appointments can help ensure a properly aligned spine as the child grows, resulting in better functioning and less risk of injury.
