Hi everybody, it’s Dr. Jodi Kinney. So today I’m going to show you how we adjust young patients in our practice.
Gentle, Safe Chiropractic Adjustments for Kids
So this is Mila. She’s a toddler. She’s what three? Mila was having a lot of congestion, in her ear tube fullness ear infections and was really almost ready to go and get surgery to get tubes put in her ears. And we were actually able to help her avoid that with adjustments. So I’m going to show you how we adjust her today. Okay, so we’re gonna start on the bottom and work our way up. Okay, now I use a little adjustment tool called a tickler. Are you okay with this? And here we go. We don’t really have to do much to have Mila laughing. Okay, so we’ll use the tickler all the way up. I think Mila likes to be adjusted. What do you guys think? One more, right. Okay. All right. So that’s how we adjust the lower spine. Then to the knees. Bend at the knees. Perfect. Now you’re going turn all the way over onto your back. All the way, all the way, all the way all the way. All right. Same thing with little kids. You don’t have to put a lot of pressure on their neck move their spine, because their spines are all just cartilage. It’s not even really bone yet. Right? Will you put your hands on your belly button. All right, little pressure. Good girl. One more, are you ready? I think Mila likes adjustments. And guess what, she didn’t have the tubes in her ears. So that’s pretty awesome too!
So if your kids have congestion, ear infections, any kind of issues with drainage, get them adjusted. It’s safe, it’s effective. And kids do awesome on chiropractic care. All right, Dr. J signing off!
