Chiropractic 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, making them prone to start life outside the womb with a spinal misalignment. When misalignments are present in the body, symptoms such as colic, poor sleep, breastfeeding issues, constipation, ear infections, and gas 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 by the time they start walking and it adds new meaning to the term growing pains. It’s highly beneficial to maintain a healthy spine in children.

And then there’s the constant physics lessons that give parents gray hairs. For children, their learning experiences sometimes result in micro traumas that can lead to a spinal misalignment, setting children up for long-term health issues.

A growing body of research shows that ADHD/ADD children respond extremely well to chiropractic treatment. Countless parents have reported significant improvement in hyperactivity and other ADHD symptoms in their children, garnering results superior to medication, and without the negative side effects.
