Reaching milestones is a huge part a child's development. When the nervous system has been impacted children are more likely to develop ear aches, hyperactivity, tummy troubles, struggles with learning and social development.
Craniofacial chiropractic care will work with child's whole spine and cranium to ensure proper development and function.
Cranial chiropractic adjustments along with age appropriate orofacial myofunctional exercises can help encourage proper growth and development of bones that are involved in oral, dental and airway development.
Is it safe?
Chiropractic care is extremely safe for children. Chiropractic adjustments performed on small children are different than those performed on adults. They are gentle and most children respond positively to the process.
How can craniofacial chiropractic straighten my child's teeth?
Chiropractors are not dentist or orthodontist and cannot correct tooth alignment or bite. However, the teeth do rest in cranial bones. Cranial chiropractic adjustments along with orofacial exercise can help encourage your child's cranial bones to develop and grow properly providing the best opportunity for optimal airway and dental development.
