Pediatric Chiropractic Care
We’re serious when we say people in all seasons of life can benefit from regular chiropractic care. Children, with their constantly developing and growing bodies, may even benefit from it more than adults! Starting as early as a few weeks after birth, babies can be evaluated by a chiropractor to adjust any misalignment caused by pregnancy or birth trauma. As children grow, regular chiropractic care can support their immune system through the brain-body connection, keep their spine and joints aligned, and identify early diagnosis of conditions like scoliosis.

Are Chiropractic Adjustments Safe For Infants And Children?
According to AmpLIFEied.com, 95% of infants have misalignments after birth. Chiropractic is shown to relax muscular tension, improve sleep, can reduce colic symptoms, and can improve breastfeeding outcomes in newborns.
As birth is one of, if not THE most traumatic process we go through in our lives, it is only natural that we check their spinal alignment. We are trained to perform gentle adjustments to the specific areas that require alignment on a newborn. We have been lucky to be trusted by many moms and dads to help their newborns regulate their systems so their bodies function at a more optimal level.
We see toddlers, elementary age, teenagers, child athletes, you name it. Parents bring their children in mostly for wellness checks, or just to ensure their spines are in proper alignment and their nervous systems are functioning optimally. Some parents have found that through gentle and specific care of their children’s spines, they found relief with various types of symptoms. Although we do not treat specific ailments, it is amazing to hear how chiropractic can play a role in helping their little bodies self-heal from various ailments such as ADD, asthma, ticks, poor latch, colic, constipation, headaches and more.
A childs’ assessment is important to ensure proper communication from the brainstem to the body, sacral movement, CSF movement, absent dural tension, proper cranial suture alignment, palate and TMJ structure and function.
