Adults are not the only ones who benefit from chiropractic care.

Did you know that the first spinal misalignment, known as a subluxation, can occur at birth? The delivery process produces significant stresses on that little neck. A natural delivery exerts up to thirty pounds of pulling on the baby’s neck. This is often coupled with twisting as the baby is being pulled. If forceps are used, this typically increases the force to sixty pounds. If vacuum extraction is used, the baby’s neck is subjected to up to ninety pounds of pulling. That is a lot of force on that delicate little neck. With that in mind, it is easy to see how newborn babies can have subluxations in their necks.

Common conditions that occur because of spinal misalignments include colic, constipation, ear infections, reflux and latching issues, just to name a few. We know that every function of your body is controlled by the nervous system. The nerve signals controlling these functions begin in the brain, travel down the brainstem and spinal cord, then out through the nerves that exit the spine between the vertebrae. The bones of the spine are designed to protect the delicate nerves. However, if they become misaligned, they can put pressure on these nerves and distort the signal being sent from the brain to the rest of the body, causing problems wherever they go. This leads to the problems listed above.

Dr. David Iszler has many years of experience caring for newborns and children. Most people automatically envision twisting and cracking when they think about chiropractic adjustments. This is not the case when Dr. Iszler cares for your child. When adjusting the spine of a newborn, he uses a fingertip to gently apply pressure to the bone that needs to be adjusted. This is comparable to the amount of pressure you would use to check the ripeness of a tomato. It really is that gentle. When adjusting toddlers and older children, he uses the only FDA-approved adjusting instrument to gently nudge those misaligned bones into proper alignment.

If your baby, toddler, or older child is suffering from any of these conditions, chiropractic is a safe and effective way to treat them without drugs or surgery. Call Trinity Chiropractic to schedule an appointment and we can help your child heal naturally.Dr. David Iszler has many years of experience caring for newborns and children.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can children benefit from chiropractic care?
Yes. Chiropractors see millions of children every day.
Why would I take my newborn to see a chiropractor?
Spinal misalignments, known as subluxations, can occur during the birth process as there is significant stress on that little neck.
What does chiropractic help in babies?
Every function of the body is controlled by the nervous system. If one or more of the spinal bones is misaligned, it can interfere with proper transmission of nerve signals from the brain to the rest of the body. Sometimes this can cause pain, but it also can cause problems like colic, constipation, ear infections, reflux, and latching issues, just to name a few.
Are chiropractic adjustments safe for babies.
Yes. When Dr. Iszler adjusts infants, he uses the tip of his finger to apply gentle pressure to the misaligned bone to restore proper alignment. This pressure is about the same as you would use to assess the ripeness of a tomato.
