Pediatric Chiropractic Treatment in West Bloomfield, MI
Your child’s spine and nervous system require just as much, or more, care than your own. Since the nervous system and spine are continually developing and changing in infants and children, it is essential to schedule regular pediatric chiropractic treatment to ensure these systems are functioning correctly. Interference from a spine that is not aligned correctly will adversely affect the brain’s sensory functions.
Your chiropractor will carefully examine your child and look for the appropriate operation, alignment and movement of the spine. It is not uncommon for newborn infants to have issues in these areas as a result of being squeezed through the birth canal and interventions like forceps and drugs can exacerbate the problem. When not addressed quickly, spinal problems become more evident as children get older.
Chiropractic manipulation will ease subluxations in the spine with light pressure to affected areas to restore the nervous system to normal and allow for optimal function of all body systems.
Infant chiropractic care
Gentle, safe adjustments eliminate issues in joints that are not moving as they should, reduce communication problems between the nervous system and spine and address inflammation. Only the lightest touch is required and can make a lot of difference. Chiropractic intervention can help babies with colic, allergies, breastfeeding challenges, not reaching developmental milestones like holding up the head or sitting, digestive issues and problems with sleep.
Child chiropractic care
Children can benefit from chiropractic care at any age and will benefit particularly when they get their first ear infection or cold. Sleeping difficulties, abnormal walking or running, bedwetting, delays in physical development, a fall or rough play, not feeling “right,” stomach issues like frequent gas or constipation can all be relieved with deliberate spinal manipulation.
