People ask me this question a lot and I LOVE to explain it!  This question gets right to the heart of what chiropractic care really is.  Chiropractic care corrects spinal misalignments- plain and simple.  Research shows that the first spinal misalignment can actually happen during the birth process!  The birth process is not always gentle; in fact it rarely is.  In order to assist the baby, doctors often pull and twist on the baby's head  in order to get them out... even worse, at times forceps and vacuum devices are used.  All of this force directed on the baby's fragile spine can easily cause a spinal misalignment.  If left uncorrected, the baby might not grow and develop properly. I believe that the absolute best time to have a child checked for spinal misaligment is right after birth, however it is never too late to have your child checked.  Chiropractic care continues to help children as they grow and develop.  Adjustments can be helpful as a child is learning to walk, afer falling, after rough play and for children that play sports of any kind.  I have seen chiropractic help children with colic, ear infections, ADD/ADHD, autism and more!  It is important to find a chiropractor that is trained to worked with children.  An excellent resource on how chiropractic can help children is the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.  If you would like to discuss chiropractic care for your child, please call me at 517-699-2646 or ask me about it at your next appointment.

In Health,

Dr. Cathy

My daughters and I love Holt Chiropractic! The doctors and staff are great and we appreciate how well they take care of our needs - everything from neck/shoulder pain and awesome prenatal care for me to helping my youngest when she suffered with persistent spitting up as an infant and chronic ear infections as a toddler.
