Why would my baby need to see a Chiropractor?

How would a child benefit?

Birth trauma. Birth can be a traumatic experience for a baby’s spine, especially with modern day techniques that involve both pulling and twisting on the baby’s neck.  Vacuum extraction, forceps and c-sections put even more pressure on the infant’s upper spine.

Colic. The pain filled cries of a baby with colic can be devastating, especially if they continue day after day. Research now shows that chiropractic is the very best way to help a baby with colic.  Adjustments to the spine allow normal function to return to the digestive system and allow baby and family to live happily.

Ear infections. Many pediatricians treat ear infections with multiple rounds of antibiotics and treat chronic ear infections with tubes through the eardrum to “keep everything working properly.”   The truth is the upper neck controls drainage through the eardrum and misalignments here can cause ear infections and pain.  Many parents have discovered that chiropractic care not only relieves ear infections but helps to prevent them too.


Chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy give mom and her developing baby the optimal nervous system for healthy growth and development.


Testimonial  Baby John – Colic

“John has been coming to Dr. Brad since he was 23 days old.  We had previously been to a doctor that said he had colic and told me there was basically nothing we could do for it.

I was making my own Gripe water but I didn’t want to continue with him crying and being in pain so we came to Dr. Brad and it turned out that his neck and pelvis needed adjusting.

He is so much better now.  Every time he gets his adjustment on his lower back within minutes he fills his pants which is great!

He sleeps so much better through the night now. Since his first adjustment, I could tell a big difference and I am just happy to keep continuing with Dr. Brad.”
