Chiropractic Care for Infants

Dr. Prinkey adjusting childMany people don’t think of chiropractic care for babies, but it’s a safe, gentle way to help keep the nervous system operating optimally so infants can grow and develop to their highest potential.

Being born is traumatic, with significant pressure applied to the baby’s head, neck and spine. Misalignments often occur during birth, and these misalignments can irritate the nerves and interfere with the brain’s ability to control the body’s function, growth and development.

At Talley Cavey Chiropractic, we love to check newborns and adjust them so optimal development can begin from day one. Dr. Prinkey has adjusted babies as young as a few hours old, using gentle, low-force adjustments that are safe and appropriate for babies’ delicate structures.

Regular chiropractic care can help your baby avoid many common childhood issues like colic, ear infections and sleeping problems.

As kids grow, they explore their world by crawling, walking, running and playing—and all of those important milestones offer opportunities for falls, bumps and misalignments. When toddlers receive regular chiropractic care, we can help keep misalignments from creating bigger problems down the road.

Parents also often bring toddlers and older kids in for behavior issues and sports injuries.

Dr. Prinkey uses low-force, gentle adjusting techniques appropriate to the child’s age. Because kids don’t have decades of accumulated stress in their bodies, they generally respond to care quicker than adults and require fewer adjustments.

Dr. Prinkey has four children himself, and he’s good at making kids feel comfortable before adjusting them. He talks to them and explains the process, and he’ll demonstrate an adjustment on Mom or Dad so the child knows what to expect and can see that it’s not frightening.
