At What Age is It Okay to Go to a Chiropractor?

December 18, 2013

Chiropractic care can be great for a wide variety of health conditions. With all of the great benefits that come along with going to the chiropractor periodically, you might wonder how old you have to be to start capitalizing on the health benefits.

The thing is: there is no age restriction at all. In fact, contrary to popular belief, even newborns can significantly benefit from trips to the chiropractor. Though this might seem like a strange concept to you, it’s true.

How Can Infants Benefit from Chiropractic Care?

After birth, especially births that last less than three hours, infants can have minor misalignments that can make them fussy and irritable. Sometimes, something as simple as a tiny spinal adjustment is all that’s needed to settle your baby down.

Because chiropractors focus the nervous and the musculoskeletal systems to make sure that the whole body can function properly, it is perfectly safe to bring your baby to a chiropractor.

General Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Obviously, babies aren’t the only ones who can benefit from going to the chiropractor on a regular basis. People of all ages are exposed to daily stressors that can contribute to the tension and the other problems your body has to deal with on a daily basis. These stressors and other general activities can put an undue amount of stress on your body if it is not put back in check. Chiropractors can always help in that arena.

For anyone, whether you are active, sedentary, or somewhere in between, having a regular chiropractic adjustment can improve the overall function of your body in addition to reducing or eliminating the pain you are feeling.
