Pediatric Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to Common Questions

At Hazeldean Family Chiropractic Clinic, we hear many questions from new and current patients, below are some of the most common questions we hear about pediatric care.

Why would I have my newborn or young child adjusted?

Newborns and young children have spines just like adults. Just like we maintain our teeth, we need to maintain our spine from an early age. Although newborn or young children certainly do not spend 8-10 hours a day working at a computer, the birth process, as well as the multiple slips and falls as they learn to move around, may affect their spine. Therefore, we recommend that our parents have their children checked for their well-being and to prevent any future issues.

How safe are adjustments on children?

They are considered extremely safe. The adjustments are also very gentle. In most cases, the pressure required to do an adjustment is not more than the same amount of pressure you would use to check the ripeness of a tomato.

How old were your children when they received their first adjustment?

Just a few hours old!

How often should my child be adjusted?

We don’t know. Every child is different, and it depends on the scenario. There is a big difference when someone has hurt themselves or has scoliosis versus if they are under wellness care.
