Common Chiropractic Treatments for Children

- Ear Infections
What Age is Safe for Chiropractic Care?
The more properly aligned a child’s spine is, the better chance they have at growing up healthy. Adjustments can begin as early as before the baby is born! While chiropractors aren’t obstetricians, they can position the mother’s pelvis to remove tension in pelvic muscles and ligaments. This improves the odds that the fetus will properly position itself for an easier, safer delivery. If necessary, they may assess a baby for a nonforce pressure adjustment soon after it is born. A chiropractor will see the child first to check for subluxations or misalignments.
Why Chiropractic Care is Often A Safer Form of Treatment
