​​​Chiropractic Care for Children and Infants

As your child is being born, the neck and

back vertebrae can shift out of alignment

due to the stretching and compressing of

the body as it emerges into the world.  If

the delivery included a prolonged pushing

stage, forceps, vacuum extraction, or other

form of assisted delivery, the chances of a

misalignment are greater.

If the misalignments are severe enough, they may interfere with the nerves that are sending messages back and forth between the brain and the body.  The functioning of major systems in the body can be affected.  For example, a misalignment in the mid to lower back can affect the nerves that control the digestive system.   Ineffective digestion of breast milk and formula can result, causing major discomfort and colic episodes in your baby.

The adjustments that Dr. Matt will do on your baby are very gentle and safe.  Chiropractic adjustments for babies and infants are often performed with a handheld instrument called an Activator. The Activator allows the doctor to control the exact location and amount of pressure that will be applied. You may see your baby totally relax before your eyes as the misalignments are corrected!

How about older children?

From toddlers to teens, we treat young patients with a range of conditions. Ear infections, bed wetting, sports injuries, scoliosis, as well as back and joint pain can all be treated with chiropractic care. Even if your child doesn’t suffer with any of these, regular spinal adjustments can have huge benefits. Your child’s spine grows along with the rest of their body. Keeping it in proper alignment during the growing process will help lead to better health now and throughout their life.

 

Chiropractic Care during Pregnancy:

Chiropractic care during pregnancy is safe for both mother and baby. Spinal adjustments are especially gentle during pregnancy as far less force is required to correct subluxations (misalignment of the spine) due to a hormone called Relaxin, which is produced during pregnancy. Throughout pregnancy, most women experience a number of neuromuscular and biochemical problems which result in an increased stress on the body, leading to pain and discomfort.  Since medications taken by the mother can cross into the developing baby’s blood system, chiropractic is a much safer option to reduce pain and discomfort.

Regular chiropractic care is an integral part of the prenatal and postpartum care during pregnancy. It helps keep mom feeling well and assists her in coping with the physical stresses of an ever changing body.
