There are several times in a baby's first year of life when chiropractic exams are especially important:
After the birth process
When the baby starts to hold his/her head up
When the baby sits up
When the baby starts to crawl
When the baby starts to stand
When the baby starts to walk
Children deserve to be treated naturally. Give your baby the best possible chance to have a healthy life. A simple checkup now might make a BIG difference for your child for the rest of their lives.
ABOUT THE TREATMENT
Treatments vary, but for preventative care, patients typically visit our chiropractor once a month or so to maintain spine integrity. However, some patients come just a couple times a year, while others visit more frequently if they require additional care. During your initial assessment we will be able to educate you on practical lifestyle modifications and preventative programs that will improve the strength of your baby's spine.
WHAT TO EXPECT
You can expect the chiropractor to have a comprehensive consultation to discuss your baby's health and spine condition. Your chiropractor may also recommend some exercises and lifestyle modification to assist in routine care of your baby's spine and overall health. Preventative care is all about taking routine action to maintain a healthy spine. Once a month visits is all it takes to loosen up any tension and minor misalignment in the spine and neck. This kind of care is truly at the discretion of the patient, but has low risk and high reward for what it can do for your baby's body.
The goal of chiropractic care is to locate and correct a serious type of spine and nervous system stress called the subluxation. By releasing stress on the nervous system, chiropractic permits the immune system to function more effectively - something all allergy sufferers need. Your nervous and immune systems are interrelated and the health of one affects the health of the other. For years chiropractors have helped people adapt better to all the stresses in their environment, including those relating to allergies.
Chiropractors relieve the body of a serious stress - the subluxation, a distortion in your body that interferes with your proper function. Correcting or removing these subluxations through chiropractic care is essential for anyone with ear infections. Chiropractic care has an excellent record of safety and effectiveness for infants and children suffering from ear infections. Keeping your child's body free from subluxations will help your child's natural defenses against disease. Give your child the great advantage of safer, more natural, drug-free chiropractic healthcare.
Hyperactivity & Learning Disorders
For years clinicians and parents have reported on the effectiveness of chiropractic care for children with many kinds of neurological conditions including learning disorders, hyperactivity, dyslexia, inability to concentrate and behavior problems. Chiropractic, by releasing stress on the brain, spinal cord and related nerves and structures, can benefit all children and adults, especially those suffering from neurological disorders. In addition to working with chiropractors, parents are enlisting the help of nutritionists, homeopaths, craniosacral therapists, medical doctors and other healers to improve their children's and their own life expression. Newborns and toddlers are better able to realize their full potential visiting a chiropractor for a checkup. All children deserve the benefit of chiropractic care.
More and more families are finding that periodic chiropractic checkups for their children make a big difference in their health. Include chiropractic checkups as part of your family's healthcare routine.
