Babies and Toddlers

Gentle Chiropractic Care for Babies and Toddlers

At New England Chiropractic we believe that every stage of life can be significantly enhanced with a well-aligned body, and this includes the vital development stages of babies and toddlers. Our gentle, non-invasive chiropractic treatments aim to ensure that your little one enjoys optimal physical health as they grow and explore the world around them.

Why Consider Chiropractic for Your Baby?

Chiropractic care for babies is often considered due to disturbances that might have occurred during birth. The birthing process, while completely natural, can sometimes involve physical stressors and strains for a newborn, potentially leading to subtle spinal misalignments known as subluxations. These subluxations may impact your baby’s nervous system function, which is vital for their development and overall wellness.

Benefits of Pediatric Chiropractic Care:

  • Enhanced Wellbeing: Gentle chiropractic adjustments aim to optimise your child’s nervous system, contributing to their overall wellbeing and happiness.

  • Sleep Improvement: An optimally functioning nervous system often translates into better, more restful sleep for your baby.

  • Digestive Support: Addressing spinal alignment can potentially assist in resolving issues like reflux or colic, making feeding times more comfortable.

  • Supporting Development: Ensuring the health of your baby's spine and nervous system supports their crucial developmental milestones.

Our Approach to Pediatric Chiropractic

At New England Chiropractic, we practice chiropractic care for babies and toddlers with the utmost gentleness and respect. Our chiropractors have specialised training in pediatric chiropractic and employ techniques like the Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT) to gently address any misalignments. This technique, refined through over 70 years of research, utilises body indicators to discern where and when to adjust, ensuring a safe and effective treatment tailored to the tiniest patients.

Safety and Comfort First

Parents can rest assured that their child’s safety and comfort are our paramount concerns. We take the time to ensure that both parent and child are at ease, explaining every step of the process and proceeding only when you feel comfortable. Our methods are gentle, using light, soothing touches that are often even less pressure than you’d use to test the ripeness of a tomato.

Your Child’s Journey to Wellness

We warmly invite you to embark on a journey toward wellness with us and experience the difference that chiropractic can make in your child's life. From improving sleep patterns to potentially alleviating common newborn issues like latching difficulties, our dedicated team at New England Chiropractic is here to support your family every step of the way.
