Chiropractic Care for Newborns & Children

Chiropractic care can provide many benefits for children, including:

Improved sleep: Chiropractic adjustments can alleviate pain and discomfort, which can help children sleep better.

Reduced colic symptoms: Chiropractic adjustments may help relieve the symptoms of colic, including crying, fussiness, and difficulty sleeping.

Improved posture: Chiropractic care can help improve posture, which is especially important for children who spend a lot of time sitting at a desk or using electronic devices.

Reduced risk of injury: Regular chiropractic care can help prevent injuries, such as sports-related injuries, by improving joint mobility and muscle strength.

Enhanced immune system function: Chiropractic adjustments can help improve immune system function, which may help children fight off illnesses more effectively.

It’s important to note that chiropractic care for children should always be performed by a qualified chiropractor who specializes in pediatric care.

Newborn Chiropractic Care is Gentle – Not Harsh

As a parent, you might worry that if you take your baby to a chiropractor that someone will start pressing down hard on your child’s delicate back. Seeing someone working on the back of your baby without understanding the process could trigger your protective instincts. The practice of newborn chiropractic care involves using a very gentle type of treatment that carefully manipulates your baby’s spine without causing injury or harm.

At Akridge & Akridge Chiropractic we use specialized adjustment instruments and low-force techniques. We work mildly and soothingly. And we target specific areas along your baby’s spine that appear abnormal. We will not treat the cause of your child’s health problems. But we will directly help reduce the stress posed by a misaligned spinal column. This treatment allows your baby’s body to function properly and heal more quickly.

As a mother herself, Dr. Lacey is a great resource for being able to talk to another mom with young children who may have experienced the same fears and doubts that so many mothers have regarding their newborns. And Dr. Craig and Dr. Sharkey are both fathers who have adjusted their children from the time they were born. Both excellent resources for moms or dads who might be concerned about what an adjustment looks like for infants.
