In addition to what we see clinically, research continues to support Chiropractic care for children!
One study looked at SLEEP PATTERNS IN CHILDREN regardless of the initial reason they were brought to a Chiropractor. Of the 116 infants enrolled in the study, 10% had reported ‘sleep disturbances’ and 75% had presented with ‘excessive crying’.
Overall, better sleep habits were seen in all the infants – and what parents wouldn’t appreciate that?! Specifically, consecutive hours of sleep, quality of sleep, and time taken to settle before sleep all showed significant improvement. Parents reported that their infants settled more quickly and easily, noting improvements after only a few adjustments.
Chiropractic works. For everyone.
Disclaimer: Chiropractic care supports overall health and healing, but is not a cure or treatment for sleep issues in children.
