Benefits of Pediatric Chiropractic Care
There are many causes to seek chiro-care for an infant or child. Torticollis, where the head draws toward one side, is a case for chiropractic treatment. Chiropractors have also found great success in treating babies with colic, children with asthma, behavioral issues, and balance problems. Chiropractic manipulation, done with an extremely light touch, can even help to prevent chronic ear infections. Other conditions that may warrant a trip to the chiropractor for your infant might be one of the following:
- Limping, posture changes
- Post-trauma - The child may require an adjustment to relieve pain from an injury
- Birthing trauma, spinal misalignments at birth
