Pediatric Care

Chiropractic care can be extremely beneficial for your infant or child. After all, kids have the same joints we do! In fact, routine chiropractic care can greatly benefit your child, no matter what age, and should be a vital part of your child’s wellness care plan to ensure they stay healthy and happy throughout these crucial years of growth and development.

Many spinal problems seen in adults can be traced back as early as birth. Routine chiropractic checkups from infancy throughout childhood to adulthood can identify any spinal issues and correct it before they become a problem. A healthy spine is critical for kids to avoid ear infections, allergies, asthma, and can help boost their immune systems.

Oftentimes, the natural birthing process can put undue stress on an infant’s spine and their developing nervous system. That stress can cause a spinal or cranial misalignment which can cause the nervous system to not function at its very best and can often be the cause of many newborn health issues.

If your infant has a spinal subluxation that does not get corrected, he or she can begin to miss important development milestones like learning to hold up his or her head, sitting up, crawling and walking. It is crucial an infant be free of any spinal misalignment so their body can function properly throughout this crucial time of development and growth.

Toddlers and young children can’t always speak up when they are hurting or in pain. This can make things complicated for parents to know when it is necessary to bring their kids to the chiropractor. However, there are cues parents can look for to know it is time to visit the chiropractor like posture changes, being off-balance, only wanting to breastfeed from one side, always tilting their head to one side and running with a limp.

Children fall an average of 25 times a day learning to walk. Each stumble and fall can cause a subluxation, which can affect the future development of the spine and lead to impaired nervous system function. This is why we highly recommend children come in for routine chiropractic checkups to help them fight off illness, prevent future issues and live a healthy life.
