Many adults can benefit from seeking care from chiropractors, but what about children, infants? Chiropractic care not only helps with their growth but provides many other health benefits as well.
As each child grows, they face struggles along the way and a chiropractor can provide relief! As the infant grows and experiences musculoskeletal pain for their day to day learning of their new capabilities, they may face falls, posture strains, and injuries to the back, neck, shoulders and arms.
Lithia Springs chiropractors individualize each of their spinal manipulations to suit the needs of each of their patients dependent upon their age and size. An infant or child may receive a soft tissue therapy or even some form of exercises that are appropriate for that age. A gentle joint mobilization or manipulation may be performed.
What Are The Benefits?
Reduces Colic Pain
Any parent with an infant who struggles with colic would try just about anything to help their little one and what better way than a natural holistic approach! Instead of just masking the problem, chiropractors will get to the root of the problem and provide gentle adjustments to the infant if needed and correct any misalignments, taking pressure off the spine and allowing the body to function the best way that it can.
Cures Ear Infection
Studies have shown that if a spinal cord injury has occured, pain can be common in the ear. This can also lead to infection as their is a miscommunication between the brain and the organ. When working with a chiropractor, they can help find the child the relief they need.
As with many childhood disorders, the cause of the breastfeeding or latching problem often traces back to an undetected biochemical injury to the spine. When seeking chiropractic care for the infant, mothers and children can oftentimes go back to breastfeeding without any further disturbances.
In children where the spine is misaligned, the nervous system can become impacted and eventually the intestines. With chiropractic treatments, the nervous system can regain its optimal function, therefore helping alleviate constipation.
As chiropractic care works to improve the overall health of patients, it also helps to improve the immune system of both babies and children.
