Pediatric Chiropractic in San Diego

First things first. What on earth could be the biggest trauma to a baby’s spine? It’s actually birth! Crazy right? This grueling process for Mom, Baby, and Partner, can have a drastic effect on how a baby’s spine and nervous system develops. That’s why we recommend that you bring your baby in as soon as possible after you give birth.

Ninety percent of babies are born with birth and cranial traumas causing a misalignment (subluxation) at the atlas, the first bone in the neck. Birth, walking, sitting, standing, playing, and exploring can all be stressful to the spine. 80-90% of brain input comes from movement of the spine.

Chiropractic helps ensure neurological development and brain to body connection is functioning at 100%. The bottom line is, babies and kids who get checked from an early age have a better trajectory of health and the ability to adapt and function at an optimal level.

The Importance of Regular Visits

Chiropractic is natural, safe and gentle health care for children. During any stage of the growth process, children may develop problems. Kids can suffer from trauma or injury, disease, nutritional deficiencies, or hereditary issues. Regular chiropractic visits allow their bodies to do what they’re meant to-grow, thrive and meet their milestones.

Dr. Katie has worked with many children on the autistic spectrum to become verbal and establish better communication and speaking abilities.

One young boy she worked with had Down syndrome. When he first came to the practice, he was unable to walk or speak and had frequent colds. After a couple of months of adjustments, he started walking and had much fewer colds.

Another case had parents bring a child in who just wasn’t sleeping for more than 10 minutes at a time. After the first adjustment, the baby slept for nine hours.
