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, bedwetting, scoliosis, “growing pains” and many other common childhood health complaints.

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.

Importance of Checkups


Children’s waiting Area

Parents who often appreciate the importance of checkups for their children’s teeth, hearing, eyes, nose, and throat draw a blank when it comes to the spine.

A spinal checkup could be one of the most important events of your child’s life. Why? In addition to the stress of childbirth, the constant jumping, falling, running and bumping of the normal childhood often causes vertebral subluxations, with serious health consequences if uncorrected.

Chiropractic for Babies

A newborn’s spine may be subject to abnormal stress as a result of a difficult birth, a breech presentation, cesarean birth, obstetrical error, or abnormal in-utero position during the last trimester. Such spinal stress can lead to health problems.

Chiropractic for Children

Today we find more parents bringing their children to doctors of chiropractic for spinal checkups. With a healthy spinal column that is free from interference, a child’s body can better deal with the sore throats, ear infections, stomachaches, fevers, measles, mumps, and the 101 other problems that often make up young life. Without chiropractic care, some children will continue to live in continued sickness, condemned to a life of taking medicines and perhaps even surgeries.

Patients of all ages can benefit from chiropractic care. Call us to schedule an appointment!
