We treat any patient - from the time they are born throughout all their lives. Babies and children need chiropractic care just as much as everyone else. The benefits of pediatric chiropractic care can be seen in many facets of a child's life.
In children, chiropractic care can help support their immune system allowing them a quicker recovery from sicknesses and even preventing sicknesses before they begin. This also includes stomach issues, a common problem with little ones. Chiropractic can help to decrease stomach pain and issues that children often complain of caused by things like constipation and reflux.
Here at inTune, we know that your mind and body are interconnected in many ways and it is no different for tiny humans. A misaligned spine can cause lots of problems, but often times children are unable to communicate their struggles. Insomnia, moodiness, bad behavior, trouble concentrating and other issues in kids can be improved by pediatric chiropractic care. Spinal adjustments can help to improve sleep by relieving muscle tightness and pain. They also help to relieve stress which can improve mood, limit bad behavior and allow a child to better concentrate in school.
Chiropractic care has been linked to better brain development. Neural brain development can be improved by relieving pressure on the bones in the spine. This can help with ADHD, ADD, anxiety, depression and other mental disorders.
Not only do children benefit from chiropractic care, but infants can reap the benefits as well. Misalignments in infants can happen very easily, especially throughout the birthing process. These misalignments have been linked to colic, trouble latching, or reflux. Dr. Al specializes in treating moms throughout their pregnancy and getting those new babies adjusted. His youngest patient was only 36 hours old!
