Infantile colic is commonly described as persistent and often violent crying for no apparent reason in seemingly healthy and thriving infants. The August, 1989 issue of the Journal of Manipulative & Physiological Therapeutics reports that 94% of a group of 316 children with infantile colic responded very favorably to Chiropractic care.Read More >

More and more parents are seeking chiropractic care for their children. Many spinal problems seen in adults began as early as birth. Even so called “natural” birthing methods can stress an infant’s spine and developing nerve system. The resulting irritation to the nerve system caused by spinal and cranial misalignment can be the cause of many newborn health complaints. Colic, breathing problems, nursing difficulties, sleep disturbances, allergic reactions and chronic infections can often be traced to nerve system stress.Read More >

Chiropractic care is essential for the pregnant mother. Her systems and organs are now providing for two and their optimal function is critical for the baby’s healthy development. The mother’s spine and pelvis undergoes many changes and adaptations to compensate for the growing baby and the risk of interference to her nervous system is increased. Specific chiropractic care throughout pregnancy works with enhancing nervous system function providing greater health potential for both the mother and baby.Read More >

Unfortunately, yes. Are they normal? Absolutely not! These are warning signs that there’s something more significant occurring in your body.Read More >
Chiro Kids Day 2015
- The birth process can be very traumatic, putting stress on the infant’s spine and developing nervous system and setting the stage for future issues if not addressed.
- Common conditions seen in children, like colic, nursing difficulties, reflux, ear infections, bedwetting, childhood traumas, and immune dysfunction can often be traced to nerve system stress.
- Developmental milestones like rolling, sitting, crawling, and walking are all activities that affect spinal alignment and are important stages to have your child’s spine checked by a Doctor of Chiropractic.
- As the child begins to participate in regular childhood activities like climbing, jumping, and riding a bike, small yet significant spinal misalignments may occur. If neglected, the subtle trauma will affect the future development of the spine leading to impaired nervous system function.
- It’s important to realize that chiropractic does not “cure” anything – your child’s body does!
- Chiropractors are experts in detecting and correcting spinal misalignments, removing interferences from the nervous system and allowing your child’s body to self-heal and self-regulate.
