“What kind of chiropractic care do babies need?”

Babies see chiropractors for a number of reasons. Birth can be traumatic and often times is. Time spent in the birth canal can often lead to the head and neck being tilted in one position for a prolonged period. C-section deliveries are particularly traumatic for the head and neck.
Often times parents bring their babies in for care if the baby is have difficulty nursing, has colic, poor sleep or otherwise seems to be in pain or isn’t thriving.
Many parents bring their asymptomatic babies in to just get a spinal check to make sure baby gets off to the most optimal start.

Not all chiropractors see babies. Chiropractic care for babies is specialized and requires extra education beyond chiropractic school. I am certified by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and am highly qualified to work with babies and children.

And, yes, it is safe. Chiropractic care for babies involves very gentle and light touch techniques to the spine and head (cranial work). There is no “popping”  when we adjust babies and most children.
