Is A Chiropractic Adjustment Safe For Infants?
The biggest question that we get about infant chiropractic care is whether it is safe for babies. The short answer is yes. In most cases, the baby will not even notice the chiropractic adjustment. Our team is extremely gentle with infants and would never do anything to cause pain. In some cases, you can even hold your baby just like you would normally during an adjustment you may even notice that your baby actually relaxes during the adjustment and sleeps during the entire visit.
While a baby is in utero, they are in a very small space and can be in awkward positions for long periods of time. In addition, the birthing process can put significant strain on a baby’s neck and spine. Chiropractic treatment of an infant can make very small, but noticeable adjustments to the spine and neck of an infant that can improve day to day function.
