If you are reading this, then you already understand the benefits of chiropractic care for adults and are likely wondering.
Is Chiropractic Safe for Children?
Chiropractic is incredibly safe for children much safer than pain medication or cough syrup! In fact, Dr. Brenda Fortin has been very successful in treating pregnant women, at birth, newborns & infants, toddlers & preschoolers, grade-schoolers & preteens,teenagers and young adults as she specializes in pediatric care.
Can a Child be Adjusted?
Yes, however, no two people are alike, so we do not use a cookie cutter program where everyone gets the same treatment and technique. In fact, Chiropractic care for children is different in technique than it is for adults. Video on an infant getting adjusted.
Tailored to their experience with chiropractic for first timers. Age, weight, prior conditions all play into the equation where most adjustments require pressure as light as a handshake. In some cases, adjustments are administered via an activator tool, which eases the transition and is a simpler, yet effective way to adjust.
