When the topic of chiropractic care for babies comes up, many people focus on the type of care given to adults, which usually includes heavy pressure on the spine, snaps of the neck, and other adjustments meant for a mature musculoskeletal system.
The truth is that infant chiropractic care is quite gentle, and can help them overcome such issues as a poor latch while nursing, gastrointestinal issues, and even some infections, in addition to correcting a misaligned spine.
During your baby’s visit at Advanced Chiropractic & Wellness Center in Ambler, Dr. Richard Schwartz will discuss your child’s condition and review what they may be struggling with. This is much like what you would go through during your own visit. Once the child’s history has been established, an adjustment may be deemed necessary.
Dr. Schwartz will apply gentle pressure, similar to that used during an infant massage, to perform the adjustment. Should an area of the spine need to be realigned, the amount of pressure required is oftentimes no more than the slight press of a fingertip. This is why it’s important to visit a licensed practitioner, in order to ensure your child’s safety, well-being, and complete care during their visit.
Through chiropractic care, your baby could find help with:
- A misaligned spine due to the birthing process or positioning within the womb
- Sleep issues
- Ear infections
- Stomach and intestinal issues such as diarrhea, constipation, gas, etc.
- Proper growth and development
- A stronger immune system
