Types of Pediatric Chiropractic Treatments

Colic

Infants can benefit from chiropractic treatment such as for helping conditions such as colic. Colic is a condition that results in severe abdominal pain caused by gas or an obstruction in the babies’ intestines. Colic generally occurs around the same time every day and lasts a few hours. When an infant experiences colic they tend to cry non-stop and curl up or stiffen their bodies. Colic usually starts around three weeks of age.

A chiropractor can gently adjust the infant’s spine using one finger and gently apply pressure in different areas of the spine. Parents can usually see results after one or two treatments. This is a very delicate treatment and should not be attempted by anyone other than a licensed chiropractor. However, treatments are very gentle and can lead to an infant falling asleep throughout the entire treatment.

Birth Trauma

Infants can experience some trauma during birth due to the narrow size of the birth canal. The use of internal tools to help a birth progress can also cause a misalignment in an infant. The most common types occur to the neck and upper spine however, chiropractic treatments can correct any misalignments in only a few visits.

Bedwetting

A chiropractor can help with bedwetting by adjusting the nerves in or near the spine that regulate bladder control. Parents beware bedwetting is a common issue for many children, however, it can also be a sign of an underlying condition, especially if it comes on suddenly without being a previous issue.

Ear Infections

Ear infections can be common in children and many children end up with tubes in their ears to help drain the fluid. Chiropractic adjustments boost the immune system and it can fight off the infection on its own, it can also breakdown the fluid so it can drain properly.

Asthma

Chiropractic treatments can help better control and decrease the number of asthma attacks. Our chiropractor can help by getting the nerves and spine to work optimally.  When the spine is aligned properly it can move better allowing your ribcage to have a larger range of motion, this can help with asthma and lessen attacks.
