Chiropractic care is safe for all ages, even newborn babies and kids!  As babies grow and develop, they go through several developmental milestones such as: picking up their heads, rolling over, crawling, and walking.  At each of these milestones, the spine is being transformed, and normal spinal curvatures are beginning to develop.  It is important for babies to be regularly checked by their chiropractor when going through each of these milestones to prevent any minor injuries from becoming big issues later in life.  Below are a few issues that chiropractic care can help with for babies and children:

 

Colic

Ear Infections

Excessive Fussiness

Issues sleeping

One-sided breast preference, turning their head to one side only

Constipation/diarrhea

Trouble latching with feedings

Support proper postural development, especially during transition periods (lifting their head up by themselves, crawling, walking, etc.)

Promotes healthy development of the brain and nervous system

Improves immune system function

Helps with childhood bed-wetting

Assists with behavioral disorder
