    Default Chiropractor for toddler constipation??

    Just wondering if chiropractic care helps for toddler constipation? My son is just over 2.5 yrs old and we have been having issues for a couple months now. He is taking PEG 3350 which is a laxative (supposedly non habit forming) but I am willing to try anything.
    Any advice?

    hi- Great question and probablly you are not alone in this problem. i am happy to say that yes there is positive correlation between chiropractic care and helping with constipation in children ( actually in any age). Through an optimally functioning nerve system the body is able to go through its natural processes ( or what we refer to as expressing its innate inntelligence) better. How this directly manifests in different individuals is different- positive changes can be seen in mood, concentration, digestive function, constipation, sleep patters, colic and many more in children specifically. When the body is subluxated ( has interference in it's nerve pathways) the information can be disrupted in someway to the end organ tissues, resulting in less than optimal function.

    hope that helps

    The advice i give is not meant as solicitation from any current chiropractor. Obviously a full exam is warranted to give full and complete diagnosis. The information I give is just meant as a guide
