Kids Need Adjusted Too!
We often forget that yes children do in fact have the same spine and nervous system as adults!! Just like adults their nerve system is protected in their spine and it is in control of ALL their body functions.
Chiropractors know that a nerve system free of stress is integral to creating and maintaining an optimal foundation for your child to flourish. Gentle, specific adjustments allow communication pathways in the body to be clear and at their best. This allows for your child to build immune strength, as well as grow and develop to the best of his or her ability.
Why should I get my baby adjusted?
This question has a very simple answer. The birth process. Birth is actually the very first trauma that each human being has undergone. Whether it was a natural birth or a C-section birth, there is an element of stress to the infant’s spine which may impair nerve function and contribute to dysfunction. Through all the stages of growth the spine plays a crucial role in development and support.
Getting your baby checked and adjusted is 100% safe. Babies are very fragile and their spines are constantly developing, Chiropractic care is tailored specifically to these softer and vulnerable spines. The amount of pressure needed to make an adjustment in a baby can be compared to the pressure you would use to check the ripeness of a fruit.
When should my child have their 1st adjustment?
There is no minimum age a child must reach to have their first adjustment. Dr Kristen is passionte about the neurological and developmental benefits of getting checked as soon as possible after birth or any type of stress, injury or trauma.
