Pediatric Chiropractor in Lincoln: Dr. John Huffman, DC
Gentle, Prone-Specific Adjustments for Infants and Children
Pediatric Chiropractor in Lincoln, NE: Chiropractors have been performing adjustments on children and infants for more than one hundred years! Many childhood ailments respond very well to chiropractic treatments without the reliance upon medications.
When children come into this world, their bodies will be subjected to various kinds of stress. Even at birth, infants can be susceptible to spinal misalignment due to fetal positions in utero, a slow birth or a c-section. The brief pediatric check-up is not designed to detect possible “hidden damage” that a chiropractic exam would discover. Early detection is the key to preventing potential pain or discomfort in the future. As a child develops, things can happen along the way. Poor posture, falls, injuries during athletic activities, can all affect how the body properly develops if there are misalignments in the spine.

Happy & Healthy with Gentle Chiropractic Care
The first thing Dr. Huffman will do is to conduct a thorough history of your child’s health and any complaints. This is followed by a complete physical examination of the child’s spine. When Dr. Huffman performs spinal adjustments for infants and young children, it will involve a gentle fingertip pressure to correct spinal misalignments. This will gently restore mobility to spinal joints.
A child’s spine generally responds faster compared to an adult’s spine and the actual number of adjustments will vary depending on many factors, such as the length of time the problem has been present. Parents can feel confident about the safety of chiropractic for their child since it is non-invasive and medication free.
