Chiropractic medicine can safely be practiced on infants, toddlers, children and teenagers.

In infants, gentle adjusting may help the baby to sleep better, eat better, and feel better. Babies may benefit from chiropractic care, since babies born naturally or via Cesarean section experience a great amount of stress and strain. Colicky babies may also benefit from gentle adjustments, as the cause the baby’s discomfort may come from a subluxation of the spine, or a misalignment, making the baby uncomfortable and prone to crying.

In toddlers, the effects can be great as well. The spine doubles in size in the first 2 years of life, and as a result, spine disorders can begin to appear at this young age. Additionally, some children need custom orthotics to aid with the development of proper gait and stride when learning to walk. Dr. Smith can assist with gait analysis and ordering of proper orthotics for your child.

In children, regular chiropractic care can help a stressed child to feel relaxed and at ease. There are more stresses on a child’s spine now than ever before. Prolonged sitting in school, contact sports and younger ages, watching TV, using smart phones, iPads, video games, etc, are all reasons why we are seeing more and more childhood spinal issues and misalignments.

In teenagers, chiropractic care can complement the athletic, active teen who may be participating in more sports more intensely than ever before. Their bodies experience growth spurts that can be painful for some. Their bodies will get stronger during these years, so adequate nutrition and care are as vital as ever as the teen matures and begins to work his or her way toward college or the workforce, or both.
