Infant and Pediatric Care

Your child’s nervous system controls and regulates all systems in their growing body. The central nervous system is the lead role in keeping your child’s body growing and healthy. Stress and misalignment of the spine can have serious impacts on your child’s overall health, behavior, and development. Chiropractic care is a gentle and non-invasive therapy working to correct underlying issues before they become hard-wired during your child’s development, providing support for a pain-free and successful life.

Babies, toddlers, pre-teens and beyond will experience health problems at some point in their life and chiropractic care can help in treating these problems. Inspired Life Chiropractic & Wellness is committed to providing gentle, safe, and effective chiropractic care techniques for your baby ensuring they stay healthy from a very young age. Dr. Rachel is trained in providing infant and pediatric chiropractic care and continues to further her education on newborn assessments and adjusting techniques to better serve children.

Benefits of Infant and Pediatric Chiropractic Care

Colic

Colic might seem normal in the process of raising your infant, but it does not need to be. Colic develops for many different reasons, with an immature gastrointestinal system being the most common. If your infant is displaying symptoms of Colic, there are chiropractic techniques designed to relieve this by adding in the movement of gas and fluid and enhancing proper digestion.

Ear Infections

A cranky baby with an ear infection is no fun and traditional treatments with antibiotics or tubes can create other health issues later in life. Along with checking the spine, Chiropractors can perform a simple adjustment of the ear through muscle dilation, which is a specific light movement of the ear. This allows the tubes to drain better, helping in the treatment of a current ear infection and preventing future ear infections.

Sleep

We all need proper sleep and an infant that is not sleeping keeps everyone in the house from getting proper sleep. Infant chiropractic care helps relieve many of the symptoms that prevent your infant from getting a good night’s sleep. Improper sleep at any age can lead to hyperactivity, memory problems and attention deficit, but can be compounded in infants. Regular chiropractic adjustments will allow your baby to develop to their fullest potential.

Birth Process

As beautiful and amazing as the birth process is, let’s be honest, it can be traumatic for mom and baby. Your infant can benefit from chiropractic care immediately after birth. Fast deliveries, long labors, and modern birth techniques like vacuum extractions and forceps may cause injury to an infant. Most common is muscle tension in the neck, creating discomfort and pain. Infant chiropractic care can be effective at relieving discomfort and pain for your baby.

You may have read or been told that chiropractic adjustments for an infant are not safe, this is just not true. A Chiropractor like Dr. Rachel, that has been trained in infant chiropractic adjusting techniques, will not use thrusting or twisting techniques. A very gentle light touch is used providing infants with a safe and comfortable adjustment.
