If you are an adult who has seen (and felt) the benefits of chiropractic care firsthand, you already know how important it is to be adjusted. However, did you know that you don’t have to be an adult to enjoy the benefits of an adjusted spine? Your children can be safely adjusted, and the benefits extend well past simply feeling pain free. In fact, adjusting young children can set them up for health for the rest of their lives.

Children of all ages can be safely adjusted by an experienced chiropractor. Infants, Toddlers and Preschoolers are especially quite receptive to regular adjustments. Here is what parents need to know.

Adjusting Infants

The birth process is traumatic for Mama and for Baby. The baby is built to survive birth, but the process takes a toll on the body. Babies can be adjusted safely as newborns, and adjustments can help to manage symptoms of torticollis or even jaundice. As Baby grows in his first year, regular adjustments can help with feeding issues and even with relieving stress for a high needs (formerly known as colicky) baby. We love the instant relaxation that a newborn demonstrates right after an adjustment!

Adjusting Toddlers

As Baby grows into toddlerdom, they are exploring their world more and more. For many kids, toddlerhood is full of learning how to walk, run, and fall. Regular adjustments can assure that toddlers are enjoying a healthy spine, and can even help with medical concerns like allergies or nutritional issues.

Adjusting Preschoolers

Finally, preschool aged kiddos love getting adjusted too. Benefits for this age group can include medical management of allergies or nutritional issues, as well as overstimulation or other nervous system concerns that begin to present themselves during this age range.

The team at Select Health Chiropractic loves adjusting kids of all ages, as well as their parents. We truly believe that the entire family can benefit from regular adjustments.
