Chiropractic is beneficial for all ages including kids, as well as newborns! Birth can be extremely traumatic for the mother and the newborn. Often the baby is pushed, pulled and forced out of their mother. This can be harmful to the spine of the baby.
As babies grow up and start to crawl and walk there are often a lot of falls that can be traumatic to their spines. It is very important that a developing baby is in proper alignment with no interference to their nervous system for optimal development. As humans we develop our thoracic curve in our mother’s womb and we don’t develop are cervical and lumbar curves until we start looking around, crawling, and walking. Chiropractic care makes sure your babies spinal curves develop properly with optimal alignment. Throughout life we can create patterns of misalignments, muscle asymmetry, and abnormal posture. Consistent chiropractic care over a life time can help prevent newborns from creating problems that could increase the risk of having serious issues later in life.
Babies are delicate and chiropractic care for them should be too. Vertebrae of newborns are not fully calcified and mostly made of cartilage. It does not take much pressure to move the vertebrae of young kids into their proper positions. It only takes about the weight of a nickel to adjust a spine of a infant. As they get older and more developed, spine adjustments start to look more and more like adults.
