Infants and children can become subluxated from birth trauma, major or minor trauma, or developmental stresses on the body. During the first five years of life, the body produces more neural pathways than at any other time. It is no wonder why cranial therapy and spinal adjustments are so beneficial to a infants and children. Dr. Lauren uses specific, gentle pressure to perform the adjustment and/or a low-force instrument adjusting tool to influence the joints and neurology. The cause of many newborn health complaints can often be traced to nervous system irritation caused by spinal and cranial dysfunction. These include: latch issues, ankyloglossia (tongue-tie), plagiocephaly, colic, recurrent ear infections, clogged lacrimal ducts, torticollis, and constipation that often see major improvement with our care.
Many parents, especially those currently under chiropractic care, will bring their babies for a chiropractic check up. Dr. Lauren will perform an evaluation of the spine and extremities using soft, gentle movements as well as check the cranial sutures for any restriction. Children typically respond quickly after their first chiropractic adjustment and follow up treatments are based on developmental milestones and any abnormal movement patterns.
Although chiropractors have been adjusting children for over 100 years, we understand that this may still be a new concept to many parents. Therefore, please feel free to call and request a phone consultation to discuss your child's specific condition and see if chiropractic care may be beneficial.
