Sleep and the Spine: How Pediatric Chiropractic Could Be the Key to a Good Night’s Sleep

Putting your little one down to bed can be a trying task. You want your child to have a good night’s sleep so they can be their best the next day. And you always want them to have a good night’s sleep so that YOU can have a good night’s sleep. But fear not, pediatric chiropractor Dr. Jacob Fletcher at Well Beings Chiropractic is here to help your child get better sleep.

kids-matChildren are in a constant state of development and growth, which causes plenty of stress on their spine. In fact, the stress on the spine begins due to the “position it is forced to adopt in utero.”  Also, with an active child, sports and even playing on the playground can start to put even more stress on the back. Typically, the issues caused by spinal stress are referred to as spinal dysfunction or subluxation and a common symptom is trouble sleeping. Fortunately, chiropractic care can help improve the alignment of a child’s spine, just as it does with adults.

How do you know if your child suffers from a subluxation? Here are some warning signs:

  • disturbed sleeping patterns
  • breastfeeding difficulties in the very young
  • restricted head or neck movement to one side
  • one shoulder higher than the other

 

Dr. Jacob Fletcher provides pediatric chiropractic adjustments to babies and children every day and is highly trained and experienced in relieving pediatric spine issues. The adjustments that he will perform on your child are age appropriate, ranging from gentle pressure for infants to adjustments of spinal joints for older children.  At Well Beings Chiropractic, we specialize in pediatrics and ensuring your child is comfortable. Typically, your child’s subluxation can be corrected in a few sessions and your whole family can sleep better at night thanks to your child’s healthy alignment.
