Chiropractic for Children & Infants
Chiropractic care benefits everyone, but getting adjusted at a young age can have the longest lasting effect as we provide a stable starting point for growth. As an additional, natural and complementary form of healthcare, chiropractic will help children as their bodies and nervous systems grow to reach their fullest potential.
Chiropractic is focused on assisting the brain to communicate with the body via the nervous system, and no time of life is more important for nervous system development than the first year after birth. During the first 9 months of life, the cerebral cortex can create up to two million synapses per second. These synapses are what helps a baby develop color vision, a pincer grasp, and many other mental milestones. Gentle chiropractic adjustments can ensure that these synapses are able to grow and work freely, allowing the brain to regulate growth throughout the body in a natural, balanced way.
In addition to neural development, our chiropractors are also focused on structure and bone growth. The early stages of life can be fraught for parents, with worries over the shape of a baby’s head to noticing an odd gait when learning to walk. Our chiropractors are specially trained to spot structural problems as they develop and correct them immediately, giving the body the best chance to grow strong and healthy.
At Ommabe we aim to give all children the chance to thrive, and consider the chance to care for your children as a special privilege.
