How Do Pittsburgh Infants, Toddlers, And Young Kids Benefit From

Chiropractic Care?

There are plenty of benefits a pediatric chiropractor can provide for children. In fact, children actually respond better to chiropractic care because many health problems are best corrected during the early stages of their development. Many studies also point out spinal misalignments are just as likely to develop in children as they are in adults. Dr. Barto specializes in care for infants, toddlers, and children of all ages. Her gentle, low-force adjusting technique can be modified to fit patients of all sizes. Care by a pediatric chiropractor can provide children with increased immune function, a decreased need for antibiotics, easier and faster injury recovery, better physical performance and improved posture. It’s very possible that the first subluxation (spinal misalignment) you ever experienced was at birth, as the birth process puts a great amount of strain on infants’ spines (even with natural methods of childbirth). An infant’s spine, particularly the neck, can easily be contorted during the pushing stage of labor. This leads to misalignment of the small bones of the spine, putting pressure on nerves and resulting in the loss of communication between the brain and spinal cord and the rest of the body. Use of suction or forceps only compound the problem. Breech births put children at unique risk for developing neck problems depending upon the presentation and difficulty of labor. Even if the newborn’s spine is uninjured by the birthing process, the inevitable tumbles and falls of early childhood increase the risk of injury to the spine, potentially compromising nervous system function. If left uncorrected, these misalignments can develop into serious health problems, including chronic inner ear infections, respiratory disorders, digestive dysfunction, poor sleeping habits, colic, decreased immunity, poor appetite and other problems.
