Why Do My Kids Need Chiropractic?

Often birthing procedures can put pressure on a child’s spine. Vacuum extraction and over-eager hands can do even more damage by pulling, forcing and twisting the baby’s young spine.  A child encounters many physical stresses during their growing years. The many small bumps and falls can cause the spinal bones to lose their normal position and cause nerve disturbance (subluxation). Left undetected and uncorrected this can lead to altered development. This never disturbance can cause negative effects on digestion, immune function, ear infections, colic, and sleep patterns.

Children’s Chiropractic Gentle and Safety

Dr. Martines is extremely gentle with infants, toddlers and adolescent patients. Rather than using an adult adjusts, he uses special low-force techniques specific to the needs of each child. Dr. Martines is highly trained, skilled and experienced. With on more pressure than you’d use to test the ripeness of a tomato, he is able to reduce compressive nerve disturbances. The procedures we use in our office are truly gentle, comfortable and effective for children.

The ICPA has initiated a study on the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic care for children. The results are outstanding and show that chiropractic care is safe for children. Even more significant is that our parents consistently report three improvements with their child’s health:

  1. Improved sleeping
  2. Improved behavior and attitude
  3. Improved immune system function

Adjustments so gentle, so AMAZING

Labor and Birth

Mothers who get adjusted seem to require less high-tech intervention. Many report shorter, less traumatic births. With proper nerve supply, well-timed contractions help move the baby more easily though the birth canal.

Even natural births can stress a baby’s spine. Breastfeeding problems can arise if the baby is unable to comfortably turn his head. Schedule a chiropractic checkup for your newborn as soon as possible.
