Chiropractic Care Beneficial for the Whole Family
Just like regular checkups and cleanings at the dentist, everyone in your family should get regular exams and care for your spine, too. Chiropractic care isn’t just for adults; infants and children can develop spine imbalances, too.
Here at Quality Life Chiropractic and Massage, we believe pediatric chiropractic is a great way to keep the body functioning at its most optimal level. With regular appointments, we can help prevent problems from developing.
Chiropractic for Children and Infants
Children and babies make great chiropractic patients because no one’s too young to benefit from our care. While their little bodies are robust, vibrant and quite durable, both undergoing birth and growth spurts can be rough on the body.
A gentle adjustment sets an infant up for proper development and growth. Adjustments have also shown to help with poor sleep, digestive issues, including spitting up often, colic and breastfeeding issues, and provide protection against ear infections.
Come see us if your baby experiences difficulty nursing, colic, limited motion of the head, neck, or pelvis, indigestion/spitting up, ear infections, or even constipation. Every last part of the human body is connected to the neural network that runs up and down the spine, making a trip to see our chiropractors worthwhile.
When it comes to growth spurts and overall development, every stage of growth can lead to a spinal misalignment or an imbalanced body. Maintaining a healthy spine in between all their accident-prone adventures helps protect their health and development. When left untreated, microtraumatic injuries can turn into long-term health issues, so make sure to schedule regular check ups to set up your child(ren) for a healthy adult spine.

Dr. Suntken and Dr. Laura are dedicated to helping your family grow up healthy and strong in a comfortable, family-friendly environment. We utilize the full-body adjustment approach when working with our youngest patients. We safely and carefully assess the entire body to determine the best course of care.
When adjusting infants and toddlers, a very light, gentle contact is used. We also incorporate mobilization techniques through muscle work, stretches, and exercises to restore function to restricted areas. We also consider what’s most comfortable for mom and baby. This may be having the infant assessed and treated while lying or sitting on the mom.
