Pediatric Chiropractic Specialist (why babies need chiropractic too)

The process of treating babies differs from treating an adults as it does not require a thrust but instead a gentle pressure. It takes extra training and experience to become a pediatric chiropractic specialist. This is why not all chiropractors treat babies or children.  Since babies and children tend to hold their chiropractic adjustments longer they do not need to come in as frequently as an adult. For babies without any of the conditions listed below, we tend to only see them when they present with symptoms, hit their growth spurts and their milestones (starting to sit, crawl and walk). Scroll below to see why children need chiropractic too. baby chiropractor

Pediatric Chiropractic Specialist: When to bring in your child? 

Healthy children do not experience recurring headaches, aches and pains and are not prone to sickness. If your child is not glowing health, we can help! If you child is going through a growth spurt, that is a good time to bring them in to check their spine, to make sure it is growing straight (and not developing a scoliosis). baby chiropractor

Growing Pains

Growing pains can be a sign that your child is deficient in Calcium, Magnesium or Vitamin D. When choosing a supplement for your child, make sure it is natural and not synthetically made, as their can be negative health consequences of taking a synthetic version of a supplement. Make sure your child's calcium supplement is not Calcium Carbonate but Calcium Citrate. Calcium Carbonate can lead to kidney stones, gall stones and hardening of the arteries.  If you are interesting in seeing brands we trust, visit https://us.fullscript.com/welcome/drummond

fullscript page for the best chiropractor

We have a "Favorite List" that you can explore, making finding reliable supplements easier without having to scroll through thousands of options. Fullscript is a reputable company, so when you order your supplements through them, you know you are getting the supplement from the manufacturer, versus foreign (and questionable) locations. When buying a multivitamin for your child, make sure the Vitamin E is the D-alpha-tocopherol form and not the DL-alpha-tocopherol form. A way to remember this is to say the "L" in "DL" stands for LIAR. The L version of Vitamin E can actually block the good L version from entering the body, making it worse to take the DL supplement than to take nothing at all.  baby chiropractor
