Written By Mauger Medical on May 27, 2021

Pediatric ChiropracticChiropractic care is healthcare appropriate for all ages, from an infant that underwent a difficult birth to an elderly person seeking to age with a bit more grace and less pain. At Mauger Medical in Corpus Christi, we want you to know the many benefits of chiropractic care for children.

Chiropractic and Infants

Birth is rough on a newborn’s body. Many are born with a slight misalignment in their spine or are introduced to stress and are misaligned during the birthing process. When misalignments are present in the body, symptoms such as breastfeeding issues, colic, poor sleep, gas, ear infections, and constipation can occur. A gentle adjustment sets them up for proper growth and development.

Chiropractic and Children

The human experiences multiple bouts of rapid growth and development that can throw the body out of balance. Add in all that high energy activity and it adds new meaning to the term growing pains. It’s highly beneficial to maintain a healthy spine in children.

Half the fun of parenting is just trying to keep your child alive while they learn--often the hard way--how physics works. This sometimes results in micro traumatic injuries that lead to a misalignment in the spine, which can turn into long-term health issues. 

A growing body of research has revealed that children with ADHD/ADD have had positive transformations with chiropractic treatment. Parental surveys of their children’s hyperactivity have indicated that many parents believe their children’s ADHD has improved after being treated with chiropractic.
