Baby crawlingSome people wonder why a child would need chiropractic care, which is often associated with back and neck pain relief. While birth is a remarkable event, it’s also an overlooked traumatic experience for both Mother and Baby. Consider the physical strain of a big baby emerging from a small space. This can lead to misalignments, discomfort, and even conditions like torticollis, where the baby’s head is tilted to one side. Chiropractic care offers a gentle, effective and safe way to address such issues.

Ensuring a Healthy Start

Just as newborns undergo various assessments after birth, it’s crucial to have your baby’s spine checked by a chiropractor like Dr. Hoover. Early detection and intervention can address any misalignments or discomfort that may hinder their development. As children grow and face the challenges of crawling, falling, and constant exploration, chiropractic care can help keep their bodies aligned and functioning optimally.

Guiding Growth and Development

Children continue to grow and develop until their early twenties. With regular chiropractic care, we can support their brain development, enhance motor skills, and promote a robust immune system at every stage of childhood development.

Frequently Asked Questions

How are babies adjusted?

Gently! Our approach involves using minimal pressure, similar to checking the ripeness of a tomato.

Do children need as much care as adults?

Children typically have a faster healing and adaptation capacity than adults. As a result, they usually don’t need to get adjusted as often.

Why should I have my infant adjusted soon after birth?

Early chiropractic care can safely remove any subluxation in your child’s nervous system, supporting healthy growth and development from the start.

Can chiropractic help improve my child’s posture?

With the increasing time children spend on digital devices, postural issues have become prevalent. Chiropractic care can restore critical movement to their spines, leading to improved posture and overall well-being.
