Chiropractic and Your Infant

How do infants benefit from chiropractic care? 

Chiropractic for infants? Do they have low back pain? Hardly-yet infants need chiropractic care to ensure that the stress of labor and delivery hasn’t damaged their spines and delicate structural systems. Other stresses they receive can involve falls-statistics tell us that nearly half of all babies have had a fall from a height (off the changing table, off the bed, etc.). Chiropractic care will help ensure a healthy baby with better resistance to disease and better ability to discharge toxins. Also, correcting subluxations may help a baby who is ill return to health more quickly and more comfortably.

There are many case histories of chiropractic helping children with all kinds of conditions-asthma, colic, difficulty breastfeeding, ear infections, autism spectrum disorder, vision and hearing disorders, constipation, neurological conditions-no matter what conditions babies may have, chiropractic care can help them grow into healthy, happy children.
