The short answer… YES! Chiropractic treatment is a drug-free and healthy option for babies who experience growing pains as well as aches associated with sitting and lying in contorted positions.
Baby Bodies Are Prone for Discomfort
Babies lack the muscle and bone structure/density to sit and hold themselves up to proper posture standards. As a result, spine misalignment can occur which will clog up the sinuses, not to mention the neural passageways, which are closely interconnected with the spine.
The Perfect Antidote for Baby Spills
Babies are also built in such a way that they can survive spills and falls, however it doesn’t mean that they aren’t prone to getting injuries they cannot tell you about.
One simple chiropractic adjustment done with the dexterous and adept hands of a chiropractor can have your child breathing easier and enjoying a more restfuld night of sleep.
Spinal manipulation will also help your child be more flexible and increase their range of motion, which will help increase their mobility and decrease discomfort as they experience growth spurts and growing pains.
Chiropractic Treatment Makes for a Happy Baby
Chiropractic treatment has also been shown to improve mood and decrease depression. Due to the fact that your spine is connected to our GI system and our nervous system, this can severely impact our behavior and mood when our spines are out of line.
