How and Why Does a Chiropractor Treat a Baby?

Here’s a conversation I frequently have with people about this:

Mother: “How do you do chiropractic on infants?”

Me: “Completely different to adults. There is no ‘cracking’ of joints. It is very gentle. If we find that there are any joints misaligned, we gently press and hold (pressure of testing the ripeness of a tomato) in a specific direction to improve it.
As gentle as it is, it can still be painful to them. An inflamed joint is tender to even a light touch.”

Mother: “Why would someone bring their baby to a chiropractor?”

Me: “Essentially, the main thing chiropractic does is decrease spinal tension.
So we have parents bring their baby to see a chiropractor because they are concerned that their child is suffering due to the physical stress their infant may have endured during birth, or even from a pregnancy where the baby has been in a position unable to move much (in-utero constraint).

By removing tension off the spine, there is less stress on the nervous system, improving its function – and your nervous system controls your entire body.”

Here are a number of reasons why parents bring their infants to a chiropractor.

It is important to remember that chiropractic care is not a cure for the above-listed conditions. The sole purpose of chiropractic care is to assess for and remove spinal tension. The result of this is a body with less stress on its nervous system. Then the body can function as it was intended to, and some have improvements in conditions listed above as a secondary result.
