Is your little one having issues with regular bowel movements? The discomforts associated with constipation can be just as frustrating for parents as they are for baby. For those who have already tried traditional medical treatment or are looking for other more natural options, Chiropractic adjustments are a great alternative.
Constipation is defined as bowel movements that are infrequent, painful, or both. It is relatively common in infants and children, especially with recent changes in diet. Current medical treatment involves the use of laxatives or other stool softeners.
Chiropractic care has been shown to improve constipation symptoms in children in a natural, non-invasive way. Nerves from the lower back supply the digestive organs, and irritation on these nerves can cause problems with function. Adjustments relieve this irritation and allow a child’s body to function the way it was designed to.
