Why Would a Baby or Child Need to See a Chiropractor?
During the birth process, a newborn spine will undergo compression forces during normal contractions and distraction forces if c-section, forceps or vacuum extraction are utilized. A recent study indicates that 95% of newborns have spinal misalignments. What better way to start off life than with a well aligned spine? Our doctors are certified in the care of pediatrics and uses gentle techniques to locate and remove spinal subluxation. Babies usually remain sleeping during their adjustment if they are asleep already or smile. It is a joyful experience for children and parents as they realize their child’s full potential in health.
Today’s parents are seeking out chiropractic care for natural solutions to common childhood problems like poor latching on and breastfeeding issues, colic, reflux, ear infections, constipation, toeing in and out when walking, asthma, bedwetting, growing pains, developmental delays, sports injuries, scoliosis, headaches, and many many more.
Chiropractors do not cure these common complaints, however we reduce interference of the nervous system, allowing the body to heal and function optimally. If there is a spinal subluxation, or misalignment, the nerve that exits that level can be affected and the muscle, tissue, organ, or gland the nerve goes to will receive an abnormal communication signal from the brain. This can create inflammation, reduced function and/or pain, leading to many childhood symptoms. If a chiropractor finds interference or dysfunction of the nervous system via spinal misalignment, we make an adjustment therefor inducing regular nervous flow and restore communication between the brain and body. Removing the interference allows the body to perform and behave as it innately knows how to do and desires to do.
The most important thing that happens during the first year of life is the development of our nervous system. Proper development of this system allows our brain to interact with our body normally. When interference is introduced to the nervous system, via spinal subluxation, the signal from the brain to the body is lessened and can create detrimental outcomes if left untreated. The nervous system is our body’s motherboard. Every muscle, every gland, every bodily system and tissue is controlled and moderated by the nervous system. If this master system is operating at less than 100%, our health will suffer. Dr. Kendra is an expert in finding these subluxations and removing them! And the adjustment is comfortable and enjoyable. Live the life your body innately desires! Take care of your spine, you only get one.
Infants, toddlers and children grow at such an enormous pace and that includes their brain, spinal cord and nervous system! A chiropractic checkup for your child will ensure that their spines are developing normally. As children continue growing and developing more injuries will occur and symptoms may or may not necessarily appear for months or even years. Heavy bookbags, sitting all day at desks at school, slumping over computers and video games and even sports activities may cause misalignments creating nervous system interference.

“Dr. Larrington is absolutely amazing. She took care of my family, specifically my daughter when she was 7 weeks old to prepare for a lip/tongue tie procedure. She’s warm, compassionate and is with you every step of the way. Because of her amazing service we decided to add chiropractic care into our list of expenses as we absolutely love what it has done for our daughter. Thank you Dr. (Kendra) Larrington!”Bianca Cruz
