Chiropractic Care for Kids
Many spinal problems in adults begin in childhood. The birth process may be one of the most traumatic events of our lives. The resulting irritation to the nervous system can be the cause of many newborn health complaints. Colic, unexplained crying, difficulty breastfeeding, ear infections and allergic reactions can often be traced to nervous system dysfunction caused by spinal misalignment.
As a child grows, it is important to have spinal check-ups to detect small problems that may result from minor falls, poor posture, hours of playing video games or sports like gymnastics, soccer and football. If left undetected, these misalignments may result in spinal problems as adults.
Is Chiropractic Safe for my Child?Of all forms of healthcare, chiropractic is one of the safest. Dr. Maroney uses a gentle combination of techniques on children including craniosacral therapy, myofascial release and adjustments using a light touch or Activator method. Many parents bringing their newborns in and are amazed at how much their infant enjoys their first adjustment.
