Chiropractic care and CHIROPRACTOR for baby
Consider seeing a chiropractor for your baby

While spinal manipulation may seem too intense for infants, it’s actually quite safe. A CHIROPRACTOR  takes special care and precautions with babies. Many believe proper chiropractic care can help infants grow more healthfully and even reduce the likelihood of colic and middle ear infections. If you have ever had a colicky baby you may want to read on!

In fact, chiropractic care is sometimes used to treat colic, as well as pain, sleep problems, and musculoskeletal concerns. Chiropractic care can also be preventive. As children are very active, there can be a great deal of stress placed on certain parts of the body. Regular chiropractic appointments can help ensure a properly aligned spine as the child grows, resulting in better functioning and less risk of injury.

When should you consider seeking the help of a chiropractor versus going to baby’s primary care doctor. Viral and bacterial infections, for example, are best treated by allopathic doctors. Chiropractic treatment is usually best for musculoskeletal problems, as chiropractors are specialists in the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractors are also a good choice when you want to avoid drugs or surgery, as they are committed to medication-free, surgery-free treatments.

As with medical doctors, the quality of care may vary with chiropractors.  Dr. Kauf at Chicago Chiropractic is a qualified and well-respected practitioner and has an enormous amount of experience in treating babies, children and people of all areas in the Chicagoland area!

It’s best to find a chiropractor who specializes in pediatric chiropractic for your child. Your pediatrician, local hospital or the Internet can help you find specialists in chiropractic child and infant care. Don’t worry about asking your pediatrician for a referral; both chiropractors and primary care doctors are used to working together with other health professionals to ensure your child gets the best care and treatment possible. In fact, the best health care professionals available are the ones that are willing to work together with others, and who don’t disparage other kinds of care. This includes Dr. Kauf!  We hope to meet you and your child very soon. Contact CHICAGO CHIROPRACTIC today.
