Chiropractic For Infants and Children in Nashville
Chiropractic can help your child function and feel better. We can help with common things like colic and ear infections.
Chiropractic care after birth is one of the most important things you can do for your child. With C-section, forceps and vacuum extraction becoming more prevalent during pregnancy, this leads to added stress on the child’s spine and nervous system.
Getting your child checked for all these challenges right away is good for the child’s health, ensuring proper growth and development.

Dealing with Stress
Similar to adults, children experience stress in their lives. This stress directly affects their nervous system which then challenges proper growth and development. It’s important to be aware of these stressors and remove them from your child’s life.
Physical stress: The modern day birthing process, slips, trips and falls and playing contact sports all lead to additional stress in the nervous system.
Chemical stress: Processed and packaged food, household and personal care products, along with over-the-counter and prescription medication can add stress to your child.
Technology overload: TV, iPads, handheld games and more are also stressors. If not monitored and limited they can lead a child to a sedentary lifestyle. Activities and exercise are vital to keeping a child’s body functioning and developing properly.
