How do you adjust newborns and infants?
They respond very well to the same methods that I use for everyone. Iíve adjusted newborns as young as 3 days, and seniors in their 90ís. Infants can present with the after-effects of birth trauma or various bumps from trying to figure out how to use a body. Sometimes the response from children is amazing. For example, one infant I adjusted had restricted motion of the right hip since birth which made changing diapers challenging. After a few minutes of positioning the hip and using reflex pressure points, the hip suddenly relaxed down to the side to the amazement of the parent and grandparent who observed. Infants often giggle when I apply the Arthrostim. Using gentle methods in a playful manner makes a chiropractic visit a fun experience for children.
