Toddler and Baby Chiropractic Care can do a world of good for babies, toddlers and children, yet many parents are unfamiliar with the practice. This is unfortunate given its many benefits.
At Zurek Chiropractic, we find that several common childhood ailments respond extremely well to chiropractic care. Children encounter many physical stresses and these problems can occur at different points of growth and development. The first of those stresses can occur in utero and during labor and childbirth. These stresses-including pressure on the spine-can cause spinal misalignment leading to many newborn health complaints including chronic ear infections, colic, reflux and sleep issues. As children grow the stresses from sports, sitting long hours in the classroom and carrying heavy backpacks can all negatively impact their spine and nervous system. Chiropractic care for children offers a safe, natural and drug-free option to resolve these issues.

We offer specialized, gentle adjustments that are appropriate for the spines of infants and children. Dr. Zurek understands that young children are not simply “miniature adults” and require a unique approach. This approach includes light fingertip pressure, and, in some cases, the use of hand-held instruments designed for specifically for babies and children.

Periodic chiropractic care also can help to delay or prevent degenerative bone or joint disease such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. Finally, more than just maintaining children’s health, regular visits to the chiropractor places an emphasis on the importance of self-care and encourages good lifelong health habits.
