At Hurley Chiropractic, our doctors are specially trained in pediatric adjusting. Pediatric adjusting is completely different than the adjustments that adults receive!
Hurley Chiropractic is well versed in Pediatric adjusting. When babies are adjusted, there is no twisting, popping, or quick movements. The adjustments are very gentle, usually performed with one fingertip, and the pressure used on a newborn is about the amount of pressure you would use to check a tomato for ripeness. Many babies sleep during their adjustments and nearly all parents report their babies sleep better after being adjusted!
Why would my baby need an adjustment?
All babies should have their spines checked by a well trained pediatric chiropractor!
The birth process, regardless of the method of birth, puts a lot of pressure on baby’s head and neck. Plus, they have been cramped up in a small space for the last nine months! Having them checked from birth helps them to grow and develop with a well balanced spine and nervous system. Chiropractic patients report their kids that got adjusted throughout childhood had fewer colds, ear infections, and fewer issues with constipation.
Chiropractic kids are Healthy kids!
The most common issues that moms bring their babies and children to get adjusted for are:
- Breastfeeding and Latching issues
- Ear infections
- Upper respiratory infections
- Plagiocephaly, known as a “flat spot” on the head
Dr. Hurley was valuable in helping me when my baby was beech. Through her adjustments my baby was able to turn and be ready for delivery. In addition, Dr. Hurley was gentle, kind, and very knowledgeable with newborn adjustments. My newborn was adjusted several times in the first few weeks of her life and it seemed to help with digestion and her ability to sleep better.
