Babies and Children

The birthing process can be physically strenuous for both mom and baby.  Hence it is best to get both mom and baby cared for as soon as possible post-partum. We believe starting chiropractic care early can help to ensure your children grow up as healthy and happy as possible.

Children may enjoy the benefits at any stage of development. While many patients report that chiropractic care has been helpful for colic, reflux,  ear infections, erratic sleeping and behavioural habits, falls, “growing pains” and a wide range of other common childhood health complaints. A concern that parents may have is that the adjustments will be too forceful. They mistakenly think that their child will receive the same type of adjustments that they receive. Adjusting techniques are modified for each person’s size and unique spinal condition.  Newborns and infants are adjusted with no more pressure than one would use to test the ripeness of a tomato!  Generally kids respond much faster and more profoundly to chiropractic care than adults do as they have not subjected their bodies to same years of abuse that most adults have!
