What is Chiropractic care and what does it do?
Frequently Asked Questions
I can pop/crack my own neck/back…how do your adjustments differ?
Is Chiropractic safe for babies and children?
Absolutely! In fact, it is incredibly effective and helpful in relieving a long list of ailments. Chiropractic care for infants differs from adult chiropractic care in that the amount of pressure used to adjust an infant is the same amount of pressure you would apply when testing for ripeness on an avocado or peach. No abrupt movement, “cracking”, or “popping” involved. The popular saying is that “Watching a highly skilled chiropractor adjust a baby should look like they are hardly doing anything at all!”
The very gentle pressure applied realigns the baby’s spine and cranial bones, reestablishing communication within their tiny nervous systems. Proper care to restore and maintain this brain/body connection alleviates many problems such as but not limited to colic, acid reflux, sleep disturbances, neck tension, breast feeding issues, congestion, and the list goes on.
