No child is too young for chiropractic services at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation. Newborns are regularly referred to us by pediatricians. Analysis and treatment is often very straightforward. Treatment consists of a gentle massage-like technique called Cranial Therapy. Infants respond very quickly in most cases with parents reporting results in as few as just one treatment.
Due to the traumas of birth and the many physical stresses experienced by newborns and infants, spinal subluxations can and do occur. This leaves a child vulnerable to many health problems, including colic. By keeping the body free of these spinal misalignments, pediatric patients are offered the chance to have perfect health from day one.
Our practice provides chiropractic treatments that are safe, gentle, and effective. In addition the Cranial Therapy, the chiropractors at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation use a treatment known as Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP), which incorporates an instrument that provides a soothing vibratory force while correcting spinal issues.
Chiropractic care is not a cure for colic; in fact, it is not used as a treatment for any specific health condition. By reducing spinal stress, however, infants and children with a number of health issues have been helped through the removal of interference in the nervous system.
