When Can an Infant Get Adjusted?

alert baby being adjustedAt Ballas Chiropractic and Nutrition Centre, we offer safe chiropractic care for infants to keep them healthy from the very beginning of life. We’ve seen adjustments decrease babies’ pain, colic, and fussiness, while improving breastfeeding and sleep. If you want to nip health problems in the bud, make sure your child gets chiropractic care early.

Babies Need to Heal From Birth, Too

The birth process is always a trauma, whether you’ve had a natural delivery or a C-section. Your baby’s body has been through a lot, and the head, neck, and spine might be out of place. Just as your body spends time healing after giving birth, your baby also needs to recover.

We recommend bringing your newborn in for a well baby checkup, as soon as the mom is feeling up to visiting the clinic. Babies respond well to adjustments from day one. We use either super light finger pressure or very light instrument adjusting to give babies safe, gentle care. Sometimes all it takes is holding newborns in a certain position to relieve tension from their spine and nervous system.

We Make Sure Everything’s Functioning Right

Every baby can benefit from chiropractic care. It’s a good idea to do a checkup to ensure everything is in the right place. If anything is off in your newborn’s body, we’d rather catch it now, before it develops into a bigger problem.

Signs that your baby needs extra attention from a chiropractor include

  • Abnormal body curvatures
  • Excessive fussiness
  • Inability to turn their head both ways easily while eating
  • Irregular movement
  • Limited motion in any region

If you’re not sure whether something is normal, come see us. We’ve seen a lot of babies, and we can give you an expert assessment and talk with you about how best to care for your little one.
