Chiropractic for Infants and Children – Lawrenceville, Princeton, Hopewell, Pennington
Spinal issues can start from birth and bring a large amount of stress to an infant’s spine and nervous system leading to long-term issues throughout the entire body. If spinal misalignments are ignored at an early age, the child can develop serious problems later in life.
More and more parents are seeking chiropractic care for their children. Many spinal problems seen in adults can begin as early as birth. Even natural birthing methods can place stress on the infant’s spine and developing nervous system. The resulting irritation to the nervous system can be the cause of many common newborn complaints. We work to increase the overall health and wellness for children and can help with prevalent problems such as:
How Children Are Adjusted
Drs. Melissa and Michael McCue will take a case history and perform a chiropractic exam to determine if spinal subluxations exist. Chiropractic adjusting procedures are modified to fit a child’s size, weight, and unique spinal condition. They are both gentle and specific to the child’s developing spinal structures.
Most parents report that their children enjoy their chiropractic adjustments and look forward to subsequent visits. They also report that their children experience a greater level of health while under regular chiropractic care.
I started taking my 6 week old son to Dr. Melissa for acid reflux. He was always crying from the pain and I was reaching a breaking point. After doing a lot of research I came across lots of threads about how chiropractics “cured” babies reflux, I decided to give it a try. I googled chiropractors in the area and Colonial Valley popped right up. After reading great reviews I gave them a call. It was the best decision I could have made for my son. I saw an immediate change in his behavior. His reflux would get better after each visit to the point that after a few weeks he was off his reflux meds. Now he is a 5 months old and happy as can be! We have had a great experience with Colonial Valley and can not thank Dr. Melissa for all she has done to help our sweet boy!
Dr. Melissa is such a pleasure to work with. Incredibly pleasant, knowledgeable, and amazing with children! We first started going to Colonial Valley Chiro for my infant son’s acid reflux issues. Not only did Dr. Melissa help him get through that, but she has also helped us identify and improve a subluxation that prevented my son from crawling properly. Thanks to her treatment plan, he not only started crawling properly, but his progress has skyrocketed and within a few short months he started crawling and running! We can not thank her enough and are so happy to have been referred to her care.
It is amazing what you would do as a mother to get the best care for your child. I was referred to Dr. Melissa McCue by a reliable source and started taking my infant son to see her for acid reflux issues (despite living almost an hour from the office). She is not only incredibly pleasant but also highly knowledgable. As time went, on she also helped my son identify and overcome a subluxation issue which caused him to struggle with crawling. We then transferred to a Dr closer to home with Dr Melissa’s help, merely for commuting convenience, however that Dr did not compare in any way, so back we were and continue to go! Words cannot express how much we love seeing Dr Melissa (yes, especially my son!). She is great with children and her care is above and beyond what words could describe. Worth the hour drive!!
Thanks to Dr. Melissa and Dr. Mike, I was able to understand the power of chiropractic care. More importantly they helped erase my fear of going to the chiropractor with their techniques and their patience for explaining each and every move. THANK YOU!
