Why do kids need to get adjusted?
Both Dr. Kinkaid and Dr. Seaver specialize in pediatric chiropractic care. Chiropractic care for babies and children is a little different than it is for adults. Adjustments are very safe and gentle, and are done by applying soft pressures to the spine. The amount of pressure used is the same pressure one would use to check for ripeness of a peach. Sometimes babies even sleep through their adjustments!
Signs that a baby or child would need chiropractic care:
Inability to turn head to both sides evenly
Autism & ADHD
We always recommend that newborns get checked by a chiropractor right after birth to ensure that the spine and nervous system are functioning optimally. It is also great to get babies and toddlers checked at each developmental milestone such as holding their heads up independently, rolling over, crawling, sitting, and walking. During each of these milestones, the spine is developing and the normal spinal curvatures are being formed.
