Pediatric Chiropractic: Why Kids Need Adjustments

Pediatric Chiropractic:
Why Kids Need Adjustments

Chiropractic Oklahoma City OK Vernon Millspaugh With Child

Even healthy, strong kids need to be checked and adjusted by a pediatric chiropractor. Not only do active kids get misaligned, but the majority of newborns' spines are misaligned from birth, causing nerve interference. 

Babies get squished and twisted during natural birth as well as in a cesarean section and other interventions. This can have a big effect on the delicate bones of their spine.  

And newborns can’t always express what they’re feeling! Here’s some clues that your baby is experiencing discomfort and may be helped by an adjustment.

  • Constipation
  • Colic 
  • Restlessness
  • Trouble latching and sucking
  • Reflux
  • Restricted head movements

Oklahoma City chiropractor Dr. Millspaugh gently adjusts babies with the small pressure you’d apply to check a ripe tomato. Sometimes babies even sleep through it! 

At each stage of development, it’s great to check that the spine and nervous system are aligned. We want to be sure that the brain and biomechanics all grow correctly, with correct postures while crawling and walking.

As kids grow, there’s also more opportunities for bumps and falls that misalign their spine and put pressure on their nerves. This results in their bodies not functioning well.

Signs of dysfunction include:

  • Headaches
  • Earaches
  • Frequent illness
  • Bedwetting 
  • Hyperactivity
  • Failure to thrive

Pediatric chiropractic is gentle and effective in moving the bones back into place, relieving pressure on the nerves. Most kids enjoy the purposeful movements and release of an adjustment. We have many kids that race to be adjusted!

During adolescence, chiropractic continues to be useful in helping the body adapt as it grows and changes rapidly. A healthy, clear nervous system balances out the hormones better too.

 Don’t wait to bring your children in to be examined and adjusted. As Frederick Douglass said, “It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.”
