Benefits of Child Chiropractic Care
A gentle pressure
Though it may sound extreme, infant chiropractic care is nothing like that of an adult's. In fact,
chiropractic adjustment for a child is just tiny light pressure, according to Dr. Burdash "Its

Both doctors also say there are no downsides to chiropractic care — for children or adults—
and that safety is unsurpassed.
"I've never heard of any adverse effects from it in children," said Dr. McCombs. "It's very safe,
the adjustments are so tiny and light, so why not try the conservative and least invasive

or the length of time for which it was given. Those who received no antibiotics at all had
improved rates of recovery (From et al., 1990).
It has been found that 93 percent of all episodes of otitis media treated improved with
chiropractic care. Seventy-five percent of the cases improved in 10 days or less, and 43
percent with only one or two adjustment (Froehle, 1996).
