Chiropractors for Kids

It’s never too early. Pediatric care now can make a world of difference in a child’s life! At Westchase Chiropractic, we offer gentle adjustments appropriate to the child’s cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine.

Baby’s First Year

Before delivery, a baby has a full spine and nervous system; and during delivery, each vertebra moves and shifts as the baby is welcomed to the world. A light adjustment after birth can ensure that the infant’s spine is in proper alignment and ready for growth. During the baby’s first year, their spine lengthens by 50 percent, at no other time does growth happen this rapidly. We like to make sure their bodies have the best range of motion, a well-functioning nervous system, and a properly aligned spine for all their little wiggles and wobbles.

As your baby continues to grow, their hips, spine, and joints all discover new motions as they begin to crawl or walk. Chiropractic care can make all these movements easier for an infant and will strengthen their body to allow for optimal exploration of the world around them. Chiropractic Care for babies can help with the following areas:

  • Strong immunity

  • Sleep issues

  • Allergies

  • Colic

  • Ear infection

  • Acid reflux

  • Bed wetting

  • Constipation

  • Irritability

  • Latching

Spinal adjustments for young children involve light fingertip pressure which allows for corrections of misalignments. These gentle adjustments can restore mobility to spinal joints and remove interference allowing for optimal nervous system function and proper development! Mental health issues can start at a young age ranging from mild stress to anxiety and depression. By removing nerve blockage, chiropractic adjustments promote a healthier flow of blood and nutrients throughout the body.
