Q.WHY DO NEWBORNS AND INFANTS GET ADJUSTMENTS? One of the most stressful events that we all go through in life is being born. Because problems during labor and the trip through the birth canal can be quite traumatic, newborns are particularly susceptible to becoming subluxated at birth. A newborn may exhibit signs of spinal distress with colic, unusual crying, problems feeding, latching on, or difficulty sleeping. A subluxation may not be immediately obvious, but to ensure that children get the right start in life, they should be checked by a chiropractor as a normal part of post-natal care.
Q. WHEN SHOULD YOU FIRST TAKE YOUR CHILD TO A CHIROPRACTOR?
As soon as possible after birth to ensure proper nervous system functioning and facilitate optimum growth and development.
Q. WHY DO KIDS NEED PERIODIC CHIROPRACTIC CHECK-UPS AS THEY GROW?

Older children experience many types of falls and blows from activities of daily living as well as from participating in sports. These injuries may cause many symptom including back and neck pain, stiffness, soreness or discomfort.
As the saying goes, "as the twig is bent, so grows the tree". Having your child checked for posture changes, muscle imbalances, and spinal issues can ensure that early insults to the spine never become an issue in their health and development. Kids generally respond quickly and may require less frequent check-ups to keep them healthy.
Q. ARE ADJUSTMENTS SAFE FOR KIDS? Yes! The doctors at Ramsey Chiropractic Center to modify the force and style of the adjustment to fit the size of each individual patient.

Some adjustments may be done using only the light touch of the doctor's pinky finger.
