At Livingston Chiropractic we adjust babies and children of all ages.
Chiropractic care for children is very gentle, only light pressure is needed to adjust the supple spine of an infant or young child.
Astrid’s own children both had their first chiropractic adjustment when they were only minutes old and have been receiving regular adjustments ever since.
The first thing Astrid will do is to take a thorough history of your child’s health and any complaints. This will be followed by a complete physical examination.
Chiropractors are trained to evaluate paediatric spinal problems, and will use gentle, specific skills to find and adjust any involved spinal areas.
Chiropractic care is tailored to the individual and their particular spine, and children are no exception. We offer specific, gentle adjustments appropriate to the infant and child’s spine and cranium.
Spinal adjustments for infants and young children involve very light fingertip pressure to correct spinal misalignments. This amount of force is often not more than a finger touch. This is usually sufficient to restore mobility to spinal joints which have become locked and are causing interference to the normal nervous system function.
