Children suffer from plagiocephaly (asymmetrical head shape), myofascial and TMJ limitations and spinal and neck pain, too. The issues can start at childbirth or as they grow and fall. It can affect their overall appearance, the ability to latch as a newborn and their overall feeling of comfort and function. These things can affect growth and ambulation as well. At Cosh Chiropractic & Wellness Center we know what it takes to relieve a little one of their pain and aches, to help with latching difficulties and to help improve your child's head shape if they have "a flat spot" or their head is symmetrical. Our chiropractors have years of experience treating pediatric patients in Redding and the surrounding areas holistically, without the use of medication or surgery.
This is what it looks like when OUR kids get adjusted!
During childbirth and while in utero, issues can arise that worsen if left untreated. A baby develops in the small space of the womb. The addition of uterine constraints, a mother’s misalignment issues, and extended time in the birth canal can amplify the need for a chiropractor and result in body tension or irregularities of the overall head shape.
Babies grow fast, and the head and neck are the most vulnerable spots for a baby. They cannot express this pain in a way to alert parents. Our chiropractors employ spinal and cranial work, to ensure your child develops a healthy nervous system. The causes of neck misalignment include neck traction during birth, car seats, and sleeping positions.
Children can also have problems reaching milestones because of leg and lower back pain caused by misalignment. At Cosh Chiropractic & Wellness Center, we gently adjust a baby’s spine using specific methods. The holistic approach takes several visits until there is no observable pain.
It is normal for kids to end up with bumps and bruises as they learn to walk. But, it is best to have a specialized chiropractor who has had additional pediatric training check them out after accidents. Children are resilient, but it is better to be safe than sorry. Chiropractic work allows a child’s body to heal naturally without surgery or other invasive intervention.
