The Age a Child Should First See a Chiropractor | Pediatric Chiropractor in Lubbock, TX

Hello! I’m Dr. Greg, and today we’re addressing a common inquiry we receive: “At what age is it safe for my child to see a chiropractor, and when should they start?” My response is always rooted in the belief that the earlier, the better.

The Importance of Early Chiropractic Care

Many parents are surprised to learn that chiropractic care can be beneficial right from birth. The birthing process, whether natural or via C-section, can be quite traumatic for both mother and child, often exerting considerable stress on the infant’s neck and spine. This stress can lead to subluxations, or misalignments of the spine, which can impact the baby’s nervous system functionality.

Why Babies Need Chiropractic Care

While it’s rare for infants to experience neck or back pain, the consequences of these subluxations often manifest in other ways. Difficulty sleeping, excessive spitting up, and colic are common issues that can stem from nervous system interference caused by misaligned bones. Our goal in chiropractic care is to remove these interferences, allowing for optimal communication between the brain and body, thereby alleviating these symptoms.

Our Approach to Infant Chiropractic Care

Our method of adjustment for infants is incredibly gentle, typically involving just the use of our fingertips to apply minimal pressure to the misaligned area. This gentle correction helps to realign the spine, easing the body and enabling it to function more harmoniously.

Long-term Benefits

By addressing these issues early, we aim to prevent a host of problems that could arise later in life, such as chronic constipation, recurrent ear infections, and ongoing colic issues. Establishing a foundation of well-being from a young age is key to a healthier, happier life.

If you’re noticing that your little one isn’t sleeping well, seems unusually fussy, or is experiencing digestive issues, it might be time to consider chiropractic care. These signs could indicate subluxations that, once corrected, can make a world of difference in your child’s overall well-being.

You have one spine, one body and one life. You need to make the most of what you’ve got! You only have one chance to live the life you want. We all suffer daily wear and tear on our bodies, but we have a choice when it comes to how we recover from the stress that life throws at us. You don’t need to rely on drugs or surgery to feel better and live fully. Chiropractic is a nonsurgical, drug-free way to find relief from pain and help your body heal itself.
