Why an Infant's spine should be checked regularly by a chiropractor

By the time children have reached 4 years of age they have fallen literally thousands of times. Just like adults, children's spines are made of individual vertebrae that can get misaligned resulting in pressure on nerves, spinal cord and may lead to long term damage. Additional causes to spinal subluxations could be: Birth trauma (difficult delivery, forceps, vacuum, C- section), improper baby carrying, and excessive time in car seats can that cause dangerous spinal misallignments that present as common newborn health complaints such as:

  • Developmental delays, torticullis, Plagiocephaly (assymetrical skull). 
  • Colic
  • Reflux
  • Earaches
  • Excessive Crying
  • Breastfeeding  dysfunction, latching issues
  • Constipation

Toddlers/Young Children

As our children grow and become toddlers; learning how to walk, repeated injuries and falls, childhood sports and playground falls can cause dangerous spinal subluxations in young children that may cause:

  • Scoliosis
  • Bed-Wetting
  • Neurodevelopmental Disorders (ADHD, ADD, Autism. etc.)
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Headaches


In their teenage years, children are at the last stage of spinal development, things like poor posture, wearing heavy backpacks, and playing contact sports may cause a multitude of conditions like:

  • Headaches
  • Poor Posture
  • Scoliosis
  • PMS
  • ADD/ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia, Depression, Anxiaty 
  • Back Pain

Chiropractic care may prevent many of these condition and provide an optimal development and health for your child throughout his life.

My 3 months old daughter was diagnosed with torticollis, GERD and had severe sensitivity with her digestion. We were at our wits end when we first saw Dr. Ofek. After just a few weeks of working with her she no longer screamed in pain for hours because of gas and reflux and no longer prefers to turn her head to one side only. She can now sleep on her stomach once again. He has helped in making her a happy baby that smiles and laughs.... I wish we had seen him from the beginning so that my daughter didn't have to endure the pain. He has become a life line to us and has given us our daughter back.
