Chiropractic: Safe for Babies and Kids

Posted on Dec 27, 2020


One of the great things about chiropractic care is that it doesn’t rely on pills to relieve pain in a person’s body. For those interested in natural healing, chiropractic is the way to go!

That said, most people think of adults when they think of chiropractors. Is chiropractic care safe for babies and kids? Yes, it is. And it’s not at all unusual for babies and kids to see a chiropractor.

As we grow, our bodies change, especially in the early years. Babies and young children can and do experience musculoskeletal issues from various activities. Maybe they fall down or get bumped. Perhaps a child gets a sports injury. Things happen to little kids. Chiropractors tailor their services to a person’s age, developmental state, and size. Things like soft tissue therapy, joint mobilization or spinal manipulation can help babies and infants feel better.

So why would a parent bring a baby or their young child to a chiropractor? Practically-speaking, chiropractors can help reduce colic pain, relieve ear infections, improve a mother’s breastfeeding, alleviate constipation, and improve immunity. If a baby or child complains of neck or back pain, or they have limited neck/head mobility, chiropractic care can help. Chiropractors also help young ones who have irregular sleep patterns, uneven shoulders, or trouble standing/walking.

Chiropractors help with mobility, immunity, sleep quality, posture, and injury recovery, among other things– and they do these things for people of all ages, from infants to seniors. There aren’t specific risks associated with chiropractic adjustments for children. In general, there aren’t adverse reactions.

In Forest Lake, MN, the place to go for chiropractic care is Lakewoods Chiropractic, located at 255 Highway 97, #2A, near Forest Lake Area High School. Please call 651-464-0800 or email info@lakewoodschiropractic.com for more info or to schedule an appointment.

By far the best chiropractor I’ve ever used. They customize a plan just for you and don’t use a one size fits all approach. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else!! Thank you!!!

I have been experiencing low back pain for at least 10 rememberable years and decided on a whim to try chiropractic care at Lakewoods. I had never been to a chiropractor before so I had no expectations that it would work or not but after just my first adjustment I had instant relief for the first time in 10 years. I have since been super impressed with how everything has been explained to me and how my care plan has been formed. The staff are all very kind and have been very helpful as well!
