Babies/Children

At Vitality Chiropractic we stress the importance of checking babies for misalignments and imbalances in the spine.  These imbalances may be the result of the birth process, illness or everyday activities.  The birth process, even under natural and controlled conditions is traumatic. During the pushing stage of labor, the spine, particularly the neck, may be injured as the baby is compressed and pushed down the birth canal. The most frequent subluxation experienced by newborns results from the pulling, twisting, and compression of the infant’s spine during birth.  These events along with the normal bumps or falls of childhood can become a serious problem in adulthood if left untreated. Checking the spine of an infant is safe, painless and effective.

The biggest difference between adjusting adults and children is the amount of force used. Although the amount of force needed to adjust an adult is very little, the amount used to adjust a child is about the same as what you would use to test the ripeness of a tomato.
