Pediatric Care

Is it Safe?

Chiropractic is one of the safest forms of health care for children. A pediatric chiropractor does not adjust a baby or a child the same way as he or she adjusts an adult. A baby's spine is very supple during the first few months of life, so the doctor of chiropractic applies only a slight pressure to make an adjustment. For older children whose spine is still made of mainly cartilage, slight pressure followed by a gentle push is all that is required to put the vertebra back in place.

Why does a Newborn Need and Adjustment

Chiropractic has been beneficial over the years with children's issues. How does a child get a subluxation? They can be caused by "normal" childhood activities like birth, falling while learning to walk, jumping on the trampoline and falling off their bikes for a few examples. I'm sure you've seen a child have a little accident and say, "Oh, that wasn't good!" Chiropractors also perform scoliosis evaluations and back pack education. Some of the childhood conditions that we've seen improve include chronic ear infections, bed wetting, asthma, growing pains, stomach aches and poor concentration.
