Pediatric Chiropractic Care in South Portland

Why Do Kids Need Chiropractic?

Did you know that even a natural birth can be traumatic for babies? That’s because their upper spines and necks go through a lot during the birth process. Chiropractic ensures that everything is working well, so your little one can grow and develop optimally.

We recommend that you bring your child in to get adjusted as soon as possible after their birth. That’s because medical doctors aren’t trained to detect subluxations. Rest assured that we adjust infants very gently—using about the same amount of pressure to check a tomato for ripeness.

Benefits of Pediatric Chiropractic

Here are some of the many benefits of chiropractic that infants and children can experience:

  • Improved breastfeeding
  • Less gas
  • Enhanced sleep
  • Improved digestion
  • Boosted immunity
  • Less fussiness

Chiropractic care also helps children hit those developmental milestones.

Helping Kids Feel Comfortable

In our warm and caring environment, we do everything possible to help children feel completely at ease when they’re here. Dr. Rachel spends time connecting with a child at a face-to-face level. She’ll get down on the floor and play with kids during their visits.

If your child is nervous about getting adjusted, that’s okay. You can always bring your little one back another day and see if they’d like to get adjusted then. Building rapport with children is her foremost priority.
