Infant Chiropractic Care
So, you adjust babies? I get asked this question all time. Adjustments for babies look very different than adjustments for adult. There is no “cracking” and the amount of pressure used is similar to the amount of pressure you’d use to test the ripeness of a tomato. Babies may need adjustments because birth can be just as hard for baby as it can be for Mom. Chiropractic is perfect for making sure any spinal misalignments that occur are gently corrected so that your baby can grow with everything communicating as optimally as possible. Parents often seek care for their children when they have colic, tension, sleep issues, nursing difficulties, torticollis or abnormal neck positioning, and even constipation.
I may or may not have been given the name “The Poop Whisperer.” Y’all, I realize I sound like a broken record BUT, Chiropractic doesn’t treat any of these conditions. It makes sure everything is lined up properly so that the nervous system can identify that there is a communication issue and heal appropriately. Most of my post-graduate education courses have been geared toward learning techniques to better serve babies and I highly suggest asking your chiropractor if they adjust babies as some may not have the experience or tools to adjust babies and might not see babies in their offices.
