Chiropractic For Children

Children who receive chiropractic care.

Parents report that many childhood health problems resolve with chiropractic care.

Why would a child have a spine and nervous system problem? Traumatic births. Learning to walk. Slips. Falls. The list is endless. Yet, because children have such an adaptive capacity, these problems are often brushed off as “growing pains” or just a “phase they’re going through.”

“As the twig is bent, so grows the tree.”

Many patients report that chiropractic care has been helpful for colic, ear infections, erratic sleeping habits, bed wetting, scoliosis, “growing pains” and many other common childhood health complaints. However, we do not treat any symptoms! What we do is free up the locked (misaligned vertebrae)! This takes away any pressure that may be causing a disruption in the communication between the brain and body through the spine. This interference is called a “spinal subluxation.”

By removing the subluxation, (misaligned vertebrae)  their bodies can perform at their best and have a greater ability to heal on their own!

The concern that many parents have is that chiropractic adjustments will be too forceful. They mistakenly think that their child will receive adjustments like ones they receive. Not only are adjusting techniques modified for each person’s size and unique spinal problem, an infant’s spine rarely has the long-standing muscle tightness seen in adults. This makes a child’s chiropractic adjustments gentle.

Knowing exactly where to adjust, newborns and infants are adjusted with no more pressure than you’d use to test the ripeness of a tomato. Many parents have commented that they see almost instant improvements in the well-being of their child.
