Is chiropractic safe for kids?
Yes! There is much research demonstrating the safety and efficacy of chiropractic for babies and children. You can read more about these studies here.
Does it hurt a baby or child to be adjusted?
No. Only slight pressure is used, and there is no twisting or popping involved with our low-force techniques. Particularly with infants, the amount of force applied is about the same that you’d use to test the ripeness of fruit.
How early can I bring my baby in?
We can see your baby as early as hours or days after they’re born. They likely won’t need multiple visits right away unless they had a traumatic birth. These periodic visits will check that everything is okay.
My child won’t be able to sit through a consultation. What can we do?
We understand that some children can’t sit through a consultation. We can break our day one processes into two parts. The first part can involve Mom and Dad coming in alone to discuss their child’s health history. On another day, the child can come in for their exam. Alternatively, Dr. Max can have a consultation with a parent over the phone.
How will you adjust my baby?
Babies need the lightest of touches to be adjusted. Mom or Dad can hold the baby, lie down with them or be in nearly any position to make the corrections we need. After your baby’s adjustment, they’ll probably have a bowel movement or go to sleep!
Do you have a kids’ area to keep them busy?
We have a dedicated children’s area and plenty to keep your child occupied and happy. With toys, coloring books and our upbeat vibe, kids love our office.
