I am frequently asked why a baby or child would need an adjustment, and there are many reasons. For starters, pediatric adjustments can help with Colic, poor sleeping habits, constipation, Torticollis, and ear aches. Treating these issues with chiropracitc adjustments is achieved by using Cranisacral therapy (CST) also know as cranial work. CST is comprised of a series of very light sustained pressure adjustments. CST adjustments do not invlove any of the popping or fast adjustments associated with other forms of chiropractic care, and most patients find it very relaxing. From the moment a baby is born, and quite often during the birthing process, babies experience a fair amount of trauma. This trauma can lead to some rather serious problems. If these problems are not addressed, then the baby’s body and well-being can deteriorate. This deterioration occurs because the body is attempting to compensate for the strains that the trauma caused. While the baby or child may not be currently experiencing any pain that does not mean there is not a problem! Furthermore, we all know it is easier treat an injury, or adress a problem earlier on before it becomes more serious. Maintenance and prevention are the key here, don’t wait for pain, stay ahead of it. You might save yourself lots of time and money!
