Helping Baby to Get the Best Start

Chiropractic for kids and babies at inBalance Chiropractic and Wellness in Shrewsbury

Chiropractic helps to keep your baby smiling!

Many people are surprised that gentle chiropractic care is one of the best ways to start your baby out on the right path.

The birth process itself is often traumatic on the fragile spine of the infant, making this the time when the first spinal misalignment usually takes place.

By taking care of these misalignments early, it helps your child to experience optimal nervous system function and development.

A Respected Expert in Pediatric Chiropractic

Dr. Larry Webster, the originator of the Webster Technique, is a renowned doctor of chiropractic in the field of pediatric and pregnancy chiropractic care. According to Dr. Webster, there are several milestones during the first year of life when it’s important for the child’s spine to be checked:

  • Immediately after birth
  • When the baby first holds their head up
  • When the infant first sits up
  • When the baby starts to crawl
  • When the child can stand by themselves
  • When the child begins to walk

This makes complete sense, as these are the times when the baby’s physical biomechanics begin to change.

Some of the most common reasons that parents bring their children into our office to be checked are colic, difficulty breastfeeding, toe-walking, sleep disturbances, allergies and imbalances in the neck or skull that are easily observable.

Chiropractic Adjusting Is Safe

Not only is chiropractic care an elegant pathway to optimal spinal and nervous system function in your child, but it’s also one of the safest. Children are adjusted differently than adults, and each treatment is extremely gentle and effective. Most kids look forward to their adjustments!

The benefits are numerous:

  • Your baby has the chance to start on a wellness journey early
  • Your child avoids health problems down the road
  • Your little one learns the value of being proactive in their health goals, rather than relying on pain management.
  • Chronic conditions don’t get a chance to manifest

We love kids! Bring your child in to be checked as soon as possible to start on the path to optimal health. (508) 425-3304
