Is chiropractic care safe for children? Yes! North Park Chiropractor Dr. Cynthia Seaman has special methods of adjusting children so that it is gentle, yet just as safe and effective as an adjustment on an adult. She uses a much gentler touch on the younger patient, typically using her fingertips to sustain a gentle contact for correction. On the littlest patients this pressure is so minor; children enjoy it and feel it as a mini massage. Most kids like getting adjusted just like their parents!
Adjustments for children are also very beneficial, and may even prevent many conditions if caught early. Many spinal problems seen in adults began as early as birth. Even so called 'natural' birthing methods can stress an infant's spine and their developing nerve system. In childbirth doctors pull the baby out by its head causing irritation to the nervous system. Spinal misalignments can be the cause of many newborn health complaints. Colic, breathing problems, nursing difficulties, problems sleeping, allergic reactions and chronic infections can often be traced to nerve system stress. Essentially, their immune system isn’t functioning as well as it should or could be.
