Chiropractic & Pediatrics

international chiropractic pediatric association
The first stresses on a baby spine, cranial bones and nervous system can occur during childbirth and even during pregnancy. Chiropractic can limit the impact of these stresses and allow the newborn to better adapt to its new environment. Although usually asymptomatic, these stresses related to the birth process cause muscle, joint and nerve tension in the newborn. Chiropractic adjustments are delicate manual techniques that allow us to correct these tensions. Newborns can safely receive chiropractic care immediately following birth, and these techniques are so gentle that the baby often sleeps through it.

Common conditions treated in pediatrics include:

  • Restricted head or neck movement
  • Disturbed sleep patterns
  • Trouble latching or nursing
  • Excessive regurgitation
  • Acid reflux
  • Earaches
  • Colic
  • Back pain
  • Irritability
  • Constipation
