Safety First: Treating Your Baby with Precision and Care
Chiropractic for kids can improve colic and fussiness, help treat infants from the trauma of birth and boost immunity—and those are just a few of the benefits your child will enjoy after his or her first visit to PhysioMed.
The Food and Drug Administration has approved an adjusting instrument for use on infants and small children to help identify and correct parts of the spine that are too rigid; since it’s completely adjustable based on your little one’s needs, we’re able to pinpoint critical areas that need attention before they cause other problems. Since developing kids are more delicate than adults, we use the utmost care in adjusting their tiny joints.
Can Babies’ and Kids’ Spines be Misaligned?
In many cases, particularly when they are delivered quickly, infants can suffer from misalignments along their spines. These out-of-place points put pressure on nerves that can cause symptoms to spring up elsewhere, such as headaches, neck kinks and other unpleasant aches. If a baby is often fussy or seems to have colic, or a small child complains of discomfort, a misaligned spine might be the culprit. Left untreated, the symptoms can become worse with time until pain becomes a way of life for your child.
Ear Infections, Colds, and Stomach Pains
Many children with a misalignment between the C1 and C2 vertebrae suffer from chronic asthma, ear infections, and allergies, and the proper chiropractic for kids can help ward off new problems. It can also help reverse other conditions; when the entire body works together in harmony, it’s easier to get healthy and stay that way.
As soon as babies are born, they are subjected to all kinds of dangerous substances. Since pressure on vital nerves can cause a baby’s body to react poorly to germs and other pathogens, making sure his or her spine is properly aligned can give your child’s immune system a much-needed boost.

The Science of Treating Children: Chiropractic for Kids
Numerous studies have been conducted which point to the effectiveness of chiropractic for kids. Regular chiropractic adjustments can result in up to a 200 percent stronger immune system, resulting in fewer colds, flus, ear infections and other illnesses. It can minimize growing pains, ease constipation and treat bed-wetting, too, so including chiropractic care in your family’s wellness plan is a step in the right direction.
