We see patients of all ages in our office including babies. We have patients as young as a day to weeks old that come to our office for care. You may be asking why a baby would need to get adjusted. One reason is because the baby may be developing in an abnormal position within the mothers stomach, or too often doctor twists and pulls the babies head when the baby coming out, causing their bones to shift out of alignment putting abnormal pressure on the brain stem spinal cord. Pulling on a baby's head with ten pounds would be like pulling an adults head with one hundred pounds of pressure.
That's why it is so important to check a Childs spine after birth. If the bones of the spine are out of place (subluxated) we will use gentle adjusting techniques to move them into the proper position. This will allow for optimal nerve flow to get to all of its muscle and vital organs. Many times if an infant is subluxated or has some misalignments in their spine, the bones of the spine will put pressure on the nerves; this can cause symptoms such as: ear infections, irritability/fussiness, colic, constipation, acid reflux, allergy problems, lowered immune system and the list goes on.
Many parents get there infants checked by a pediatrician, but never have a through evaluation of the Childs spine. The spine is the master controller of everything that happens and is happening in the body. When the baby checked for misalignments and they are corrected this will help not only as an infant but will also help prevent many health problems from rising as an adolescent and through there adult life. We have had years of experience working with infants with very favorable results. We have been featured on My Fox 9 News treating infants and colic.

Blaine, Minn.- Controversial technique boasts many success stories
Wednesday, July 30, 2008
BLAINE -- A colicky baby can cause a parent to do just about anything to calm their child down. It's been controversial for years -- but more and more parents are taking their infants to chiropractors who say they can help their child with just a few weeks of therapy.
Jennifer Cahill says 3-month-old Ava would keep her up at night crying and fussing.
"It's really stressful. My husband and I would take turns holding her and trying to soothe her."
So Jennifer took a friend's advice and brought Ava to Hart Family Chiropractic in Blaine, MN.
Dr. Anthony Hart specializes in calming colicky babies. He first started seeing Ava when she was 3-weeks-old, checking her for misalignments.
Dr. Hart starts with the back, moves to the hips, and finishes on the neck. It's a process that appears painful, but is very gentle and safe.
Dr. Hart believes during the birthing process, babies' necks and backs are sometimes injured, disrupting the nervous system. He believes a disruption in that system causes colic.
"We go in there and get the pressure off the bone causing pressure on the brain stem, and it allows the body to get back into balance and flow the way God's designed the body to work."
Jennifer now swears by Dr. Hart's actions. "She's just the calmest baby in the world, she rarely cries now, she's so happy. Amazing. A totally different kid."
