Oftentimes, the spinal issues we face as an adult began as early as birth. In fact, the birthing process can actually create spinal subluxations. This is why we advocate for your infant to receive chiropractic care as soon as possible. The quicker Dr. Matt is able to fix the subluxation in your baby, the less likely he or she will experience problems in the future.
When spinal and cranial misalignments are interfering with how the nervous system is functioning, your infant may begin to experience the following health issues:
- Ear Infections
- Sleeping Difficulties
- Breastfeeding Dysfunction
It is vital you not only have your baby checked soon after birth but also at important milestones such as lifting the head, rolling over, sitting, standing and even walking, because spinal alignment plays a large role during these growing years.
Toddlers and Young Children
As your child grows, you should still maintain a regular schedule of bringing them in for a chiropractic adjustment from Dr. Matt. As children grow they will experience regular physical stressors on the body on a daily basis, these stressors can be playing sports, sitting all day in a classroom, playing on the playground, stumbling and falling and even just wearing a backpack!
If left untreated, these stressors can result in spinal subluxations that create health problems for your kids down the road. If your child does have an untreated subluxation, some common complaints they may have, are:
- Behavioral Issues
- Learning Disabilities
- Ear Infections
No matter what age, your chiropractic care is safe, gentle and effective. In fact, kids often respond to the chiropractic adjustments very quickly and their parents can usually see the results within a matter of a few visits. With children, Dr. Matt only uses the amount of pressure necessary to perform chiropractic adjustments. Since children’s bones are still growing, we only use a gentle fingertip pressure to adjust the spine allowing the body to function to its best ability. Our Disney inspire office, combined with our adjustments that are gentle and painless, our younger patients often enjoy coming in to see Dr. Matt and get adjusted!
