Natural health care, including chiropractic care, isn’t just for adults! In fact, using natural healing techniques for children is every bit as beneficial for them as it is for their parents. Nevertheless, the idea that children, even newborns, would see a chiropractor to get adjusted is a stretch for some. Why would a parent bring them in? How would a child benefit? What would prompt the need for chiropractic care?
Here are a few reasons:
- Birth trauma. Even so-called natural childbirth methods can take a toll on a baby’s spine. Cesarean Section can be even more so.
- Colic. Lacking the ability to explain their discomfort, babies cry. And cry! Many experience extraordinary relief with chiropractic care.
- Ear infections. The mechanical tension in the upper spine can compromise the inner ear and eustachian tubes, becoming fertile ground for infection.
Gentle, Effective Care
Children seem to enjoy their adjustments. Besides requiring a lighter touch than the ones you receive, most infants respond quickly. They rarely have the build-up of scar tissue that we often see in adults with long-standing problems.
Do you know a child that could benefit from today’s safe and natural chiropractic care? Resolving these problems early can avoid problems later on.
