Why should children be under chiropractic care?
Throughout the developmental changes of childhood, children often experience many different stressors, whether it’s chemical, physical or emotional. Before the age of two, infants will experience hundreds of falls as they learn to sit, crawl and eventually walk.
How are infants adjusted?
When it comes to the adjustment of an infant, it is very different then an adjustment of an adult that usually results in a “popping” sound. Instead infants receive a light and gentle pressure to remove stress from the body. The pressure used on an infant can be compared to causing a tomato to dimple with a fingertip.
How often should my child be checked by a Chiropractor?
There is no specific schedule on how often a child should be checked by a chiropractor. A simple rule of thumb is at least around every major milestone. These milestones include the following: learning to crawl, sitting up, walking. The frequency will also vary on the overall health of the child. Many parents have their children checked on a regular basis to ensure their children are on the road to optimal growth and development.
