Pediatric Care

The health and happiness of your child is the most important thing.  Chiropractic care has been proven to be safe and effective at improving the well-being and happiness of children.


Children have spines and a nervous system just like adults and chiropractic care is essential, especially during the developmental years. The integrity and function of the nervous system is very important for proper growth and development, especially for children.  So, it is very important that the spine, which protects the nervous system, is moving properly and in proper alignment.  If the spine is misaligned, it can lead to many health issues.

By being proactive with your children and allowing their spine and nervous system to grow properly early on, you can prevent issues and the need to correct spinal misalignments later on in life.


Children unfortunately are over stressed much more than ever before.  The trauma that they encounter at an early age or even before they are born such as intrauterine constraints, birth trauma, malpositioning (breech), c-section, birth intervention (forceps/vacuum suction) and even falls are enough force to shift the spine out of alignment.


A child that encounters chemical stress (vaccines, antibiotics, medication, diet) and emotional stress (fear) will also cause a protective (fight/flight) response or tension within the musculature that supports the spine.  These tense muscles can also misalign the spine and cause Subluxation.


When a child has been through trauma and the spine becomes misaligned and Subluxated it needs to be corrected with safe and effective chiropractic adjustments.  If the misalignment is not corrected, the spine will continue to grow “crooked” and the Subluxation will continue to cause health challenges. Some of these challenges include:  


  • Allergies 

  • Asthma

  • Bed wetting

  • Behavior

  • Constipation

  • Colic

  • Digestion

  • Ear infections

  • Fussiness

  • Headaches

  • Mood

  • Reflux

  • Sensory integration

  • Torticollis

  • Trouble sleeping

  • Trouble with focus


In addition to helping with the issues listed above, patients have also reported three unexpected improvements with their child's care:

  1. Improved sleeping

  2. Improved behavior and attitude

  3. Improved immune system function
