Pediatric Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic Care For Children

Children undergo a significant amount of physical stress throughout all stages of life.
Think about the bumps that occur as they are learning to walk, begin to play with their siblings and friends, and become interested in athletics. Each of these types of physical activity can easily create spinal misalignments.

Proper spinal alignment is important in children because it allows their nervous system to be able to function optimally which encourages proper growth and development. With consistent chiropractic care, children are able to maintain proper spinal alignment regardless of their level of activity which leads to an improved quality of life.

Chiropractic Care For Newborns

We don’t often think about how traumatic the birthing process can be. There is a lot of twisting and pulling on the baby’s head during the birthing process, which can lead to a misalignment of the spine. These can occur with a normal vaginal delivery as well as a delivery in which forceps or vacuum extractor is used.

Some of the common issues we’ve seen caused from spinal misalignments in babies include:

  • Difficulty breastfeeding
  • Asthma
  • Colic
  • Digestive problems
  • Behavioral issues

Pediatric chiropractic care can improve many of the issues listed above. Not only will you see improvements in child’s basic functions, you may see an improvement in mobility and even increase immune system responsiveness.

It is never too early for chiropractic care; even a small adjustment can make a difference in a child’s life.
