Chiropractic for Newborns

For infants, entering the world is a traumatic event for their little bodies.  Gentle manipulations will help ease nerve dysfunction, which can lead to digestive issues such as colic, constipation, and reflux, as well as aid with breathing and sleeping difficulties. 

Newborns often have trouble latching on as they learn to breastfeed. A chiropractor will check their rooting reflex, jaw alignment, and range of motion in the neck to allow for more balanced nursing on both sides. 

Holding their head up, sitting up, rolling over,crawling, and walking force an infant to use their bodies in new ways. Misalignments of their spine can occur during this learning, as they move and fall frequently.  Many of our patients have shared with us that the chiropractic adjustments their infant received has been helpful for colic, ear infections, constipation, and better sleep.

Infant adjustments are gently done with the same pressure you would use to test the ripeness of a tomato.  Our doctors use the Activator Methods® Adjusting Instrument, which is a handheld spring-loaded tool that delivers a consistent low-force, high-speed thrust. Infants do not receive the typical adjustments associated with adults.
