Pediatric Chiropractic is Essential for Many Babies and Children
Antoniotti Chiropractic focuses on creating optimal health at every stage of life.
The most common reasons parents will bring their babies to our office are:
- Ear infections
- Nursing/latching issues
- Sleep issues
As chiropractors, we are trained to look beyond the symptoms, and instead uncover the underlying cause for the above concerns. There is a growing amount of evidence that indicates subtle spinal misalignments in newborns, as a result of in-utero constraint (improper positioning of baby in-utero) and/or birth strain, creates tension within their delicate nervous systems. This “tension” can result in a number of different symptoms, such as the ones listed above.
The role of the pediatric chiropractor is to gently assess and correct these tiny misalignments (using equally tiny pressure) to allow your baby’s body and nervous system to return to balance. Optimal health exists within a balanced nervous system.
As children continue to grow their spines undergo many forms of trauma as they learn to walk and crawl, play, and become involved in sports. Many of these things may again result in subtle misalignments which can be easily detected and removed by a doctor of chiropractic.
Another essential part of our pregnancy / pediatric chiropractic care is providing parents with all the information they need concerning health and wellness. From child nutrition and exercise to ADD/ADHD, and stress reduction, or anything else, we are committed to providing you with complete wellness education that gives you the answers you need!
If you feel your child may have any signs of subluxation, they likely could benefit greatly from pediatric chiropractic. Posture is a very telling sign of the health of a child’s spine, if your child has poor posture please do not hesitate to call us. Remember, prevention is the best medicine and it’s better to start young so your child can grow and function at 100% and truly be well.
