truly hope that more parents choose to send their children from
an early age for chiropractic care.” D. K.
Chiropractic adjustments for infants and children are different than those for adults. Pediatric adjustments are even more gentle than the ones for adults. There is no cracking, twisting or turning of their spines, just a gentle pressure that moves the vertebrae back into the proper alignment. Infants are adjusted while being held by a parent so they feel safe and secure.
