Pediatric Chiropractic at Rooted in Wellness Chiropractic

Children in a circlePeople are often surprised that kids can benefit from chiropractic care. But when you understand that the body is designed to be self-healing and has the innate intelligence to create wellness from within when interference is removed from the nervous system, it makes sense that children can benefit from care just as much as adults!

Any birth process can cause stress on an infant’s nervous system—even a natural delivery with no interventions or complications. The stress in a baby’s nervous system manifests differently than in adults; babies often experience latching/feeding issues, colic, constipation, ear infections, sleep difficulties or the inability to turn their head in both directions.

Chiropractic care can help the nervous system function as it should, allowing these issues to clear up on their own. When infants are relaxed and can nurse easily, it helps build a strong bond with Mom.

How we can help

At Rooted in Wellness Chiropractic, we use safe, gentle, non-invasive techniques to relieve tension from the nervous system so your baby’s body can function optimally. There is no twisting, cracking or popping, and the pressure Dr. Jo Anne uses to adjust a child is about the same as you’d use to check an avocado for ripeness. Babies often relax completely during an adjustment and even sleep right through it. We have lots of toys for the bigger kids, and we take the time to make sure they’re relaxed and ready to be adjusted before we begin.

When we help restore proper nervous system function, your baby is better able to adapt to the constant changes they’re going through as they grow and develop. Of course, as babies become toddlers and start crawling and walking and running, they fall on their bottoms and bump their heads a lot, and regular adjustments can help relieve that physical stress so it doesn’t build up in their nervous system.

Dr. Jo Anne is currently completing her certification in pregnancy and pediatrics with the international chiropractic pediatric association.
