Pediatric Chiropractor in Burtonsville, MD: Dr. Block has been performing adjustments on children and infants for many years. Common childhood ailments often respond beneficially to chiropractic care. This safe, non-invasive procedure involves the manipulation of the body to place the vertebrae in the correct positions in the spinal column. Chiropractic is based on the important relationship between the spine and the nervous system. Spinal dysfunctions caused by subluxations can alter how the body functions and affect health.

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. Some newborn health complaints such as colic, reflux, breastfeeding difficulties, sleep disturbances, allergic reactions, and chronic infections can sometimes be traced to nervous system irritation caused by spinal and cranial misalignments.
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 subluxations. Not only that, chiropractic care helps alleviate some common behavioral and mental issues!
Naturally Ensure Your Child is Happy and Healthy at Block Chiropractic in Burtonsville
The first thing Dr. Block 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. Dr. Block and the chiropractors at our facility are trained to evaluate pediatric spinal problems, and will use gentle, specific skills to find and adjust any involved spinal areas.
Spinal adjustments for infants and young children involve a gentle fingertip pressure to correct spinal misalignments. This helps restore mobility to spinal joints. A child’s spine generally responds faster compared to an adult’s spine.
