My baby is fine; there’s no problem.” It’s not about having overt symptoms, but about allowing your child to get a good start in life by maximizing the potential of their nervous system and giving them an advantage through life.

Chiropractic care has a positive impact by eliminating the effects of the many stressors that your child may have already been exposed to, even before birth! Answering “yes” to any of the following questions could indicate that your child may have interferences in their developing nervous system:

  • Were there any health concerns during pregnancy?
  • Were any medications taken during pregnancy?
  • Was the baby delivered by cesarean section?
  • Was the baby pulled out by the head during the birth process? Was a suction device used? Was it a forceps delivery?
  • Was it a twin pregnancy?
  • Was there malpresentation of the baby in the birth canal? Was it a breech birth?
  • Did the baby have a fever after birth? Was your baby given antibiotics?
  • Has your baby had trouble with latching or nursing? Is there colic?
  • Does your child eat a healthy diet? Is there emotional stress?

How Can Chiropractic Help?

If you’re a parent, you’re also very familiar with the bumps, bruises, scrapes, concussions and broken bones that children can be prone to! These physical impacts have a cumulative effect on the body, and can result in physical or behavioral symptoms that often seem unrelated, such as:

  • Earaches or chronic ear infections
  • Asthma
  • Sinus infections or allergies
  • ADD or ADHD
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Seizures, bedwetting or constipation
  • Sensory disorders

Time Is of the Essence

Chiropractic care has proven to be very valuable to the health and well-being of all children. By having a noninvasive spinal scan an impending problem can be brought to light. It can then be quickly corrected before it has a chance to manifest as a symptom.

This is what wellness chiropractic care and prevention are all about.
