Is chiropractic safe? Is it safe for adults, kids, babies or even pregnant women? The answer is YES! Chiropractic is safe. because our adjustments are very specific, gentle and reproducible. The adjustment does not have to involve high force adjustments. There are techniques that are very gentle, and specific that don’t require any twisting, turning, cracking or popping. Not because that is bad, but using an instrument allows us to be more specific, and consistent during each adjustment making it very safe. See our technique here

What is the number 1 way that we can get a misalignment in the spine? The birthing process. Even if the birth went smoothly and according to plan there are abnormal stresses places on the babies neck as they come through the birthing canal. This creates a misalignment in the upper cervical (neck) area of baby and that has a global effect. It decreases the function of their nervous system and that has an impact on them as they begin to grow, their brain develops and the adapt to their new environment.
