Teething and Toddlers: Easing Discomfort with Pediatric Chiropractic

Posted in Pediatrics on Dec 5, 2023

As any parent knows, teething is a significant milestone in a toddler's life, but it can come with its fair share of discomfort and stress, both for the child and the parents. While there are many traditional methods to ease teething pain, pediatric chiropractic care is emerging as a gentle and effective approach to help alleviate some of the discomfort associated with this developmental phase.

Teething usually begins around 6 months of age and can last until a child is about 3 years old. Symptoms can include irritability, disrupted sleep, swollen or tender gums, drooling, and a tendency to chew on solid objects.

The Role of Pediatric Chiropractic Care

Pediatric chiropractic care focuses on the proper alignment of the spine and the functioning of the nervous system. It is based on the premise that a well-aligned spine facilitates better overall health. For teething toddlers, gentle chiropractic adjustments can help ensure that their spine and nervous system are functioning optimally, which may help alleviate some of the discomforts they experience during teething.

1. Reducing Nervous System Interference: By gently aligning the spine, chiropractic care can reduce nervous system interference, potentially easing the discomfort associated with teething.

2. Improving Sleep Patterns: Discomfort from teething can disrupt sleep. Chiropractic adjustments may help improve sleep patterns in some toddlers.

3. Enhancing Overall Well-being: Chiropractic care is holistic, aiming to improve overall health and well-being, which can be beneficial during the teething phase.

Safety and Effectiveness

It's important to note that pediatric chiropractic care is different from adult chiropractic care. Chiropractors who specialize in pediatrics use very gentle, non-invasive techniques suitable for babies and toddlers. Always ensure that the chiropractor you choose is licensed and has experience in pediatric care.
