Chiropractic Care for Babies, Infants & Younger Children
As a parent, you want nothing but the best for your child, including their health and well-being. Chiropractic care can provide a range of benefits for babies, infants and younger children in helping to support their growth and development. Our youngest patient was just a few days old and our lead chiropractor, Evelyne O’Hare is specially trained to provide gentle and effective care for your little one.
If your baby’s birth has been less than straightforward it may have put some stresses on the bodies of both mother and child, for example after a very quick or very prolonged labour. Or where the baby has presented in a less than conventional position, such as sideways, or back to back.
Babies can sometimes be restless and fussy, have feeding or digestive issues. Gentle treatment can often help your baby to settle when he or she is uncomfortable.
Chiropractic techniques for babies are extremely gentle as their bones are so soft compared to adults.
What conditions can a chiropractor treat in babies?
We cannot treat conditions in babies, however we can help babies with the symptoms of such conditions as:
- Digestive issues
- Difficulty latching on
- It is always best to get your baby checked over as prevention is always best.
Benefits of Children’s Chiropractic Care for Infants and Babies
Chiropractic care can provide a range of benefits for infants and babies, including:
Improved sleep: Chiropractic care can help to improve the quality and duration of sleep for babies, helping them to wake up feeling refreshed and well-rested.
Support for growth and development: Chiropractic care can help to ensure that your baby’s spine and nervous system are functioning properly, which is essential for proper growth and development.
As your child’s chiropractor, Evelyne uses gentle and effective techniques to provide care for infants and babies. These techniques include:
Craniosacral therapy: This technique involves gentle manipulation of the skull and spine to help release tension and improve the functioning of the nervous system.
Adjustments: We use very gentle adjustments to ensure that the spine is moving as well as it should. It is not the same as adjustments for adults.
Soft tissue therapy: Our chiropractors use soft tissue therapy to help release tension and improve flexibility in the muscles and connective tissues.
Lifestyle and nutritional advice: Our chiropractors can provide advice on lifestyle and nutrition to help support your baby’s growth and development.
Children’s chiropractic care can provide a range of benefits for infants and babies, helping to support their growth and development. We are warm, friendly and fully trained to provide gentle and effective care for your little one.
