Pediatric Chiropractic Care for Infants

No matter your age, your body is subjected to a wide variety of stress. For infants, they are susceptible to this stress while in utero as well as during birth. This is why it is important for your baby to be checked by Dr. Ryan as soon as possible—even as early as a couple days old! In addition to checking for spinal misalignment, these check-ups early on in life are important for a healthy nervous system as well. If your infant is suffering from colic it is possibly due to discomfort that can be helped with Chiropractic!

Benefits to Receiving Chiropractic Care as an Infant at Badgerland Chiropractic of Janesville, WI

Receiving chiropractic care throughout a child’s early development has a large number of benefits. An example of some major benefits include:

  • Helps with infantile colic
  • Aids scoliosis detection and treatment
  • Reduces chronic ear infections
  • Improves ADD/ADHD
  • Helps with a baby’s feeding as well as their sleeping habits
  • Assists with asthma, allergies and other sinus issues
  • Improves digestion issues, constipation and bed wetting

Pediatric Chiropractic Care for Children and Teens

As infants grow into toddlers and young children, their spines undergo many different forms of stress and trauma. This is strongly the case as they learn to walk, crawl, play, become independent and involve themselves in sports. A number of these may result in subluxations that Dr. Ryan Dunphy can easily detect and resolve at his Janesville, WI chiropractic clinic. The Average toddler falls 17 times an hour while learning to walk!

Why Pediatric Chiropractic Check-Ups are Important

Kids and teens should regularly receive chiropractic check-ups as healthy spines and proper alignment are important for overall health. Just like with infants, chiropractic care helps children with digestion issues, bed wetting, sleeping habits, ear infections, asthma, allergies and ADD/ADHD too. Other conditions chiropractic care can help with as children continue to grow are:

  • Poor posture resulting from hours in front of a TV/computer screen or carrying heavy backpacks
  • Poor concentration or poor coordination
  • Joint pain or pain in the back, limbs, hips, feet or shoulders
  • Irritability and nervousness
  • Weakness or fatigue
  • Scoliosis

Pediatric Chiropractic Care Treatment at Badgerland Chiropractic

The first thing Dr. Ryan will do is conduct a thorough history of your child’s health with the parents and the child as well as address any complaints he or she may currently have. He will then complete a full physical exam of their spine. Once the chiropractor starts to perform spinal adjustments on your child, he will use very gentle fingertip pressure to correct any spinal misalignments he finds. The pressure he uses will gently restore mobility to the spinal joints. In turn, this will unlock any interference blocking the normal function of your child’s nervous system.

Compared to adults, a child’s spine typically responds faster to chiropractic care. But the actual number of adjustments received will vary by child depending on how long the problem has been around among other factors.

Chiropractic care for infants and children is one of the most important things you can do for your child. You can rest assured that your child is in great hands when visiting Dr. Ryan Dunphy at Badgerland Chiropractic in Janesville, WI!
