Pediatric Chiropractic at Crouse Chiropractic

Dr. Matt holding babyNewborns with colic, reflux, constipation. You’ve tried changing formulas, giving gas drops or changing your diet, if you’re breastfeeding. Nothing seems to change, and you think your only option is to wait it out. We have news for you: there are other options in getting your happy, healthy baby back. At Crouse Chiropractic, we know that “common” doesn’t mean “normal.”

When your baby cries, it’s their only way of telling you that something is wrong. We examine their spine to see if there is irritation on a nerve, which will affect the function of the area of the body that nerve goes to. By correcting this irritation, your baby’s body can function as it should.

Improve Your Child’s Function

There are many conditions in all ages of children that can benefit from chiropractic, such as

  • Colic
  • Reflux
  • Constipation
  • Ear infections
  • Bed-wetting
  • Scoliosis
  • Headaches
  • Improper posture

The reason that chiropractic can address such a broad range of issues is that no specific condition is treated. Instead, we remove stress on the body so it can work at its highest level.

If your baby is healthy and doesn’t seem to have any problems, you want to keep it that way. As an infant grows, they roll, crawl, learn to stand and eventually, walk and run. Slips and falls are a normal part of life for a growing child. Since their muscles don’t have the tone to hold everything into place like an adult does, their spine can easily become misaligned. Chiropractic removes these misalignments to take stress off the nerves of the body.

If your child is a toddler or older, they may feel nervous about the experience of visiting a new doctor’s office. Know that we will do everything possible to help them feel comfortable. During their adjustments, they can sit on your lap. Babies can receive their adjustment while they’re asleep in their car seat. We’ll use the technique that’s right for them, making sure we tailor to their needs. Our methods for babies and children are extremely gentle.

One of Dr. Crouse’s young patients was a baby who was stuck in two modes: sleeping, or screaming. In a nearly-consistent state of spasm, she was far from your typical happy baby. Dr. Crouse worked on her. Over the course of just a few visits, the problems cleared up. We love making a difference in the lives of not just children, but the whole family.

We’ve seen kids who were unable to hold down food despite eating plenty. After chiropractic, their reflux issues were gone. Another baby was unable to turn their head and wasn’t responding to visual stimulus. Every time she comes into the office, she smiles when she hears Dr. Crouse’s voice. Her body knows that good things are about to happen!
