How old do you have to be before you can get adjusted?
“How old do you have to be before you can get adjusted?!”
My youngest patients that I have ever adjusted were my adorable twin niece and nephew when they were both only ONE DAY OLD.
Contrary to popular belief, children are not born perfect. They go through the trauma of childbirth. For example, my niece was a vacuum-assisted birth because she was breech and my sister stopped having contractions after my nephew was born. Children also have numerous spills and falls as they are growing up.
Chiropractic care for children is very gentle. Checking a child’s atlas (the top bone in their neck) is important to make sure that their brain and body are communicating properly. It’s as gentle as the pressure that you would use to check an avocado at the grocery store.
Children’s parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest part of the nervous system) has 4 cranial nerves that are involved so making sure that they are stimulated and communicating properly is key for a healthy and happy baby.
