Infant Chiropractic Care: Should You Try It?

By Genevieve Cunningham

When you think of chiropractic care, you probably very rarely, if ever, picture infants or babies. Why would you? What could an infant possibly need from the chiropractic clinic? While any office likely has far more middle aged adults than babies, getting regular care for an infant might be more beneficial than you think. If you’re interested in finding out what a chiropractor might be able to do for your little one, take a look at this quick information guide.

Is It Even Safe?

Rightfully so, this is often the first question of parents. No one wants to unnecessarily put their child in harm’s way. Fortunately, the research regarding chiropractic care on infants continues to show that this method of care is perfectly safe for small babies and children. While there are risks involved with any form of health care, the risks are no greater than for any other type of care that an infant may receive.

Why Would They Need Care?

Believe it or not, even an infant can have restrictions in the spine. Why? Usually, a small baby has poor spinal health due to normal birth trauma. Birth is a traumatic event for all involved, and even though it’s generally safe in today’s world, both Mom and baby put their bodies through quite the ordeal. In slightly older babies or toddlers, restrictions might become present through rough play, injuries, or even the normal wear and tear of life.

What is the Benefit?

Many parents who seek care for their infants or babies report a few common side effects. The most raved about seems to be the reduction in colic. Colic is a tough ailment for parents to live with. It involves a crying baby -- for seemingly no reason -- who can’t be soothed no matter what the parents do. After a few visits to the chiropractor, many parents find this ailment wane. Other benefits might include fewer ear infections, tummy aches, and a general boost in health.
