Pediatric Chiropractic Care Q & A

What is pediatric chiropractic?


Many of the spinal problems adults suffer from begin as early as birth. Even the birthing process itself can put stress on an infant’s spine and developing nervous system, leading to common newborn health complaints such as colic.

Today, more and more people seek chiropractic care for their children to relieve these problems and prevent them from worsening. In addition to being a mother herself, Dr. Sarah is professionally trained in pediatric chiropractic care.

At Grayhawk Family Chiropractic, Dr. Sarah utilizes gentle non-force techniques to treat infants and children of all ages.   

Why should children receive chiropractic care?

The process of childbirth can create a significant amount of physical stress and spinal trauma to a newborn. These issues may cause a host of common infant health concerns, such as:

  • Sleep disturbances
  • Nursing problems
  • Breathing problems
  • Chronic infections

As your child grows and begins to crawl and walk, it’s important to bring them to Grayhawk Family Chiropractic to ensure they have healthy spinal alignment. Even small misalignments can cause serious problems later in life, especially around the time of your child’s growth spurt.

Additionally, children tend to fall and injure themselves as they discover new ways to use their bodies. Without proper care, these injuries may not heal correctly and lead to pain or alignment issues later in life.

Any interference with your child’s spine or nervous system prevents them from optimal functioning. Regular chiropractic checkups help identify and treat minor injuries before they grow into a serious problem.

What are the benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy?

Not only is it safe to receive chiropractic treatments while you’re pregnant, but it’s also an essential part of your prenatal care strategy. Many women experience back and joint pain during pregnancy due to the rapid growth of their developing baby.

Pregnancy can amplify pre-existing imbalances in your spine and pelvis that may have previously gone unnoticed. This can lead to discomfort and difficulty when performing regular daily activities.

Correcting these imbalances with chiropractic care increases your comfort throughout pregnancy and can reduce your risk of a difficult labor when the big day comes.
