Chiropractic Care for Infants and Children
Common Pediatric Ailments
It’s common knowledge that all babies will cry, and that is normal behavior to an extent. It can be difficult to use those cries to determine what your baby wants when they have no other way to communicate, but in infants, there may be common health issues that you have to deal with. Colic, which is excessive inconsolable crying with no known root cause, is stressful for not only babies, but also for parents as well. Things like growing pains, spitting up, and teething may also occur in infants, leaving parents looking for solutions. As they grow and begin to walk and play, children may also begin to experience injuries, both minor and major. While some falls and bumps are normal, they can cause misalignments in the spine or other injuries that may cause discomfort. While infants and children can suffer from most of the same issues that adults do –after all, their nervous system works the same! – they may be more prone to injuries than their older counterparts. If these aren’t treated from an early age, they can compound and cause issues later in life. Teaching your child the importance of regularly visiting a Portage chiropractor from a young age can build healthy habits for their future.
Pediatric Chiropractic Care
Just like an adult’s spine, a child’s spine can be misaligned. Even before your baby is mobile, they could have misalignments resulting from birth or other sources. Studies indicate that when cared for appropriately by a chiropractor, there is no danger to a child getting a chiropractic adjustment. Not only can chiropractic help with misalignments or injuries, but it can also lead to improved sleep, better behavior, and optimal brain development in children as well. Your child’s developing brain is heavily impacted by the spine, and ensuring alignment and health there may cause relief in a number of areas.
