Chiropractic for kids? Absolutely! Just as your child goes to the pediatrician for well child visits, a visit to a pediatric chiropractor for a wellness visit can help keep your kids healthy and thriving as they grow and develop.
When babies are born, they can't walk and talk, can't swallow anything other than liquid, and have certain infantile reflexes such as the startle reflex. These are all indications of a premature nervous system. As our children grow out of these infant reflexes, their nervous systems are going through huge developmental milestones. They are growing physically in size, and becoming more active too. Chiropractic care helps to optimize the potential of their developing nervous systems.
Any interference in the pathways of the nerves, can interrupt the signals being passed from the brain to the body and back again. This can present as difficulty feeding, colic, recurring infections, failure to meet developmental milestones, and much more. Nervous system interference can be silent, without immediate symptoms.It is so important to get your kids checked regularly by a pediatric chiropractor. They can make sure they are growing and thriving, without any limits to reaching their full potential. Here's what some of our patient families have to say about pediatric chiropractic care:
"Chiropractic has been a key part of our daughters' health care since they were infants. Colic, ear infections, torticollis, headaches--all of them have been effectively and compassionately treated by Drs. Finden and Jabs. We live quite far away from Active Health Chiropractic, yet I'd never trust our family's well-being to anyone else." ~Nina J.
"We took our little one to see Dr. Finden at just 3 weeks old. We noticed his head was tipped at an odd angle most of the time and he didn't want us to straighten him out. On the walk home from our first visit he was lifting his head to look around. He was so happy. At the time he also spit up half of what he ate, every time he ate. The spit up virtually stopped after the first visit. The results were so amazing and we could see them before our eyes. We have since taken him back to help with everything from ear infections to constipation. It has helped offer him relief every time." ~April G.
Pediatric chiropractic care is much more gentle than the care we provide for adults, many newborns even sleep through their first adjustments! We have a lot of experience and success with helping kiddos get over the speed bumps they many encounter while they are adapting to their new life outside the womb.
