While adjustments may seem too intense for infants, it’s actually quite safe. Chiropractors take special care and precautions with babies, and find that proper chiropractic care can help infants grow more healthfully and even reduce the likelihood of colic and middle ear infections.
In fact, chiropractic care is very effective as alleviating colic, ear infcetions, sleep problems, and nearly any musculoskeletal concern including difficulty or instability in walking. Chiropractic care can also be preventive. As children are very active, there can be a great deal of stress placed on certain parts of the body. Regular chiropractic checkups can help ensure a properly aligned spine as the child grows, resulting in better functioning and less risk of injury.
Chiropractic is a good choice for mothers that wish to minimize drugs or surgery, as care will always be directed towards strengthening the body. Remember: the power that MADE the body HEALS the body. It doesn’t come from a pill bottle.
Still not convinced? Children of chiropractors get adjusted regularly, and grow up with much less health problems, and much fewer visits the doctor’s office. That translates into a healthier and happier childhood!
