Heath Benefits of Chiropractic and Kids - FB Post

Ask a Question and get out of the way! Let the public on facebook answer it for you... I did add my comment to the stop so it didnt get lost in translation! - Dr. Jon Wise

Jennifer asks, 

"My daughter now 16 months hasn't received any vaccines since she was 6 months. I was just wondering when is a good age to take her to a chiropractor, how often, n what exactly do they do for them? Also what is the health benefits of doing it?"

      • Jon Wise Dc Marilyn: any pediatric trained Chiro is fully capable of analyzing and adjusting a new born. Every infant adjusting technique it very low force and very safe for any child. 

        I am a practicing pediatric Chiro with over 75,000 office visits. Lots of pediatric adjustments in that. I even know nucca, but I do not practice nucca. Adjust any and all segments out of alignment. Do not adjust the normal functioning joints. 

        Frequency: depends on the child. No rule book that fits everyone. 

        Good rule of thumb: check ups directly after birth, around any milestones or major neurological shifts, every time they are sick. Anytime you would like to check their spines... 

        Children's spines get out of alignment due to: birth trauma, parental stress to mom, post birth care givers, changing diapers, falling out of cribs/beds/couches, etc. any physical, chemical or emotional stress can cause a joint to get out of alignment. 

        Sorry for the short post with grammar issues. All typed on a iPhone, not a PC.

      • Scott Jutte I've been a practicing Chiropractor for 21 years: The purpose behind Chiropractic is keeping the nervous system working without interference, which in turn allows the intelligence that created your daughter from a single cell to work at its greatest capacity. The most common cause of interference is created by an improperly positioned or moving spinal segments. Less intelligence to the parts = less function. When would you take your daughter to a dentist?... when she has teeth. She was born with a spine. So anytime after delivery is best  My 2 children are now 22 and 19 (out of college and in college) still un-vaccinated and healthier than most children their age.

      • Ursula Pasche Stouffer The earlier the better. My grandchildren (all 17 of them) have seen a chiropractor since birth.
        Especially toddlers fall all the time and put their spine out of whack, which can lead to severe health issues later on. Children who are regularly adjusted are healthier, happier and feel better.
        Chiropractic can fix ear infections, problems with toilet training, uneven leg lengths, headaches, speech problems, ADHD and many more.
        Usually once every one to four weeks seems to be good, extra appointments after a bad fall.

      • Amber Rose Most babies are subluxated at birth. Either from neck pressure in the birth canal or pulling and torquing by the Dr./nurse. My son didn't start until 14 months but knowing what I learned from 19 months as a CA, right after birth is the most important adjustment, my son still sees a chiro twice a week at 3 and is unvaccinated and healthy as can be, no seasonal allergies, ear infections, stomach bugs etc. His innate is in control. My next birth will be at home and involve a chiropractic adjustment immediately for me and baby!

      • Dan Farkas Mishaal....think of going to a Chiropractor even if you don't have symptoms the same way you look at going to a dentist even if you don't have a toothache.

      • Dan Farkas Chiropractors are concerned with the removal of nerve interference that causes dysfunction in the body systems such as the immune system. Like Dentistry, Chiropractic is recommended for life. Only a Chiropractor can determine how much care and at what frequency someone needs. Let me know if you need a referral.

      • Page Crow It's so awesome to see all these great recommendations for chiropractic.  I've been a chiro for 30 years and I still love what I do. Lucky me. I get to help Babies be healthy and they give me hugs & kisses and make beautiful picture art for my office. We are glad chiropractic is working for you all.

      • Mishaal Khan just curious on the importance of Chiropractors as every1 seems to recommend them here. I've NEVER been to a Chiropractor nor has anyone in my extended family. None of us have had any problems in posture or bone adjustments (thank God) so we've never felt the need. Seems like a wonderful science tho, should look into it.

      • Susan Cosgrove Start yesterday. Lifestyle stresses (noise, pollution, mom's toxins) all contribute to babies nervous system deficiencies. Chiropractic combined with a healthy diet for mom will maximize the baby's immune system. And the avoidance of vaccines was a great start. Good for you.

      • Kristina Nielsen Pain is the last symptom to show itself. You can have joint dysfunction and not feel it which can also be causing problems you don't know you have.

      • Victoria Allison I started my kids at birth, and my daughter has done the same 
      • Amy Knight Francoeur From birth on. The chiro will tell you how often to come. As for benefits: it will benefit her health & well-being in general. My daughter, for example, has been seeing our chiro since birth. She's never had more than a sniffle, is happy, healthy, energetic, sleeps well, eats well (as well as a 28-month-old toddler will eat), etc.
      • Teresa Clark Ayto i took my kids after they were born , and occasionly during toddler years but i personally found that the more often we went to a chiropractor the more often we needed to go now we go if we really desperately need an adjustment and are in a lot of pain which isnt very often i havent been for over 4 years ..remedial massage works a lot better for me than chiropractic ever has 
      • Maryellen Stephens Yep my two were adjusted straight after birth and continue to get checked regularly. Make sure the chiro has pediatric training x

      • Henry Curteis osteopathy works. chiropractors use structure where osteopaths look at effects. I would go osteopathy every time. It transformed our child's health in one visit.
        • Sherri Kaye Tomlin really i do not get the argument that one is better than the other. they actually do very very similar things. their focus is different. their training is some the same and some different. i much prefer a good chiropractor, myself. altho i find that it is the caliber of the practitioner that is more important than whether they practice osteopathy or chiropractic.

      • Corin Jones My daughter had her first visit when she was 2 weeks old! She had a grinding sacrum (noticed by the midwives who attended her birth) and a pulled left neck muscle. It did wonders! Immediately after he fixed her neck, she could turn her head both ways! Before that, I had noticed her keeping her head to one side.
