Pediatric/Children and Chiropractic Care

Our chiropractic patients come in all shapes and sizes, ages and stages. As early as birth, we can assess your newborn for spinal joint restrictions that may be affecting their head position, or ability to latch at the breast. Many parents may also request an assessment of their newborn for digestive concerns or perhaps they notice an unusual crawling pattern as their child reaches various milestones in their development.

Gentle Adjustments

With the same pressure that one uses to test the ripeness of a tomato, a gentle adjustment is given to reduce the dysfunction in that area of the spine. An adjusting tool, called an Activator, may also be used to deliver a gentle force to the restricted joints. We recommend regular chiropractic check-ups throughout a child’s development as a natural approach to enhancing their body mechanics, posture and function as they grow.
