Infant Chiropractic Care
Even the youngest family members can benefit from the help of a chiropractor. Infants often develop a condition called colic which is a severe abdominal pain caused by gas or an obstruction in the babies’ intestines. It usually occurs around the same time every day and lasts a few hours.
A chiropractor can adjust the infant’s spine using one finger and very gently apply pressure in different areas of the spine. Parents can usually see results after two appointments. This is a very delicate treatment and should not be attempted by anyone other than a licensed chiropractor.
Chiropractic Care for Children
Some common issues for toddlers and children are bedwetting, ear infections, and ADHD. A chiropractor can help with bedwetting by adjusting the nerves in and near the spine that control bladder control. Parents should be aware that bedwetting is a common issue for many children however, it can also be a sign of stress or an underlying condition. It is always best to have your child examined by their pediatrician.
