Infants, Toddlers & Children

Pressure Points

At Connected Chiropractic, we've been caring for families for over 30 years. Many families come to us directly after pregnancy for a post-delivery check-up, ensuring the well-being of both the mother and baby after the birthing process. Others visit us during the first year or two of their child's life, seeking assistance with various concerns that often arise as children become more active.

Numerous parents bring their children for regular check-ups to ensure a healthy spine, especially considering the challenges that come with childhood. Whether it's dealing with bumps and falls, engaging in sports activities, or managing the effects of excessive screen time, a check-up can provide valuable insights.The first five years of a child's life witness a remarkable rate of brain development.

From birth, they possess all the neurons they will ever have, and their brain doubles in size within the first year. By the age of three, it reaches 80% of its adult capacity, and by five, it is 90% developed. As children grow and reach milestones like holding up their heads, sitting, crawling, and walking, spinal alignment plays a crucial role and can be influenced by these activities. Therefore, it is important to have a chiropractor evaluate a child during these significant periods.

Our primary goal, regardless of age, is to ensure the spine remains mobile and free of tension. Life presents various traumas and stressors at any stage, making it essential to have a chiropractor who can help maintain your internal health.

What to expect on your visit to the clinic

How is chiropractic care provided for children? At Connected Chiropractic, our adjusting procedures are modified to suit a child's size, weight, and specific stage of spinal development. Adjustments can be carried out using hands, instruments, or pillow-like blocks, and they are gentle and tailored to the child's evolving spinal structures. Chiropractic care for infants is extremely delicate, involving subtle adjustments using light finger pressure, similar to checking the ripeness of a fruit.

Most parents report that their children enjoy their chiropractic adjustments and eagerly anticipate subsequent visits. They also notice that their children experience a higher level of overall health when receiving regular chiropractic care.
