Even a natural birthing process can be traumatic for your precious newborn. Dr. Ashley will gently check your baby, making sure that there are no effects from labor and delivery on your child’s heath. We feel it’s imperative for all children to be checked by a chiropractor throughout their childhood to ensure that the child’s nervous system and immune system are functioning optimally.
As your child continues to grow, we want to make sure they can develop properly. Birth trauma, improperly carrying your baby and excessive time in seats (car seats, bouncers, bumbos, jumpers, etc.) can cause spinal misalignments. These problems often present themselves as common childhood health complaints that include the ear, nose, throat, digestive issues, sleeping difficulty, and irritability. Learning to walk, repeated bumps and falls, sports, dance, texting and carrying heavy backpacks can all lead to subluxations in children. Through chiropractic care, we can help your child feel great and function optimally so they can enjoy each year as they grow.
Children receive chiropractic care that is completely different than that of an adult. Our light, gentle adjustments are safe for babies and children. If you’ve seen us during your pregnancy, we’re happy to check your baby after they’re born to make sure their spines are in proper alignment.
Here are some benefits to pediatric chiropractic care:
1.) Improved Sleeping
2.) Improved behavior and attitude
3.) Improved Immune system function
4.) Some conditions proven to be alleviated by Chiropractic: ADHD, torticollis, Colic, Asthma, Ear Infections, Bed Wetting, Falls, Acid and Silent Reflux to name a few.
Your baby deserves to have the healthiest start. Contact our office today to find out how we can help ensure their best future! “If the twig is bent, so grows the tree.”
