Not only is chiropractic care safe for children, but the pediatric adjustment is MUCH different than one might expect. Parents mistakenly think their child will receive spinal corrections like ones adults receive. Not only are adjusting techniques modified for each person's size and unique spinal problem, but an infant's spine rarely has the long-standing muscle tightness seen in adults. This makes a child's chiropractic adjustments gentle. Newborns and infants are adjusted with no more pressure than you'd use to test the ripeness of a tomato. Many parents have commented that they see almost instant improvements in the well-being of their child. So the next time you make an appointment, make one for your child(ren) as well! It's never too early to have a properly functioning spine and nervous system.
