Why Babies Need to See a Chiropractor

You’ve heard the saying, “As the twig is bent, so grows the tree.” It has never been more impactful than when you consider a baby or child’s health. Misalignments in the spine can occur as early as the birthing process, which can be traumatic to their neck even when it is a natural birth. We can detect these areas of misalignments and make the proper, gentle corrections.

Your nervous system controls every cell, organ and tissue in your body. If your child has a particular health issue, optimizing their spinal function to make a positive impact on the nervous system can influence these issues. Improvement is commonly seen in these areas after a child begins care.

Co-Managing Your Child’s Tongue-Tie Revision

Dr. Angell also provides craniosacral therapy in addition to gentle chiropractic, which is highly sought for bodywork on babies who have tethered oral tissues. This condition can create adhesions and tightness in the neck, jaw and shoulders. If your child has a tongue tie, lip tie, buccal ties, or any combination of tethered tissues, we can screen for these ties and make the appropriate referral for revision, and then provide the bodywork for full healing and restored function.
