Chiropractic and Kids


Why should children be under chiropractic care?
If you as a parent want your child to thrive mentally and physically to his or her greatest potential, then chiropractic is not an option; it is an essential component to your child's life. Some parents are concerned about the safety of a child being adjusted. When adjusting a pediatric patient, Dr. Amy uses a very specific, low force adjustment to correct the subluxation.

Why you should have your newborn checked by a chiropractor? Many issues may arise from the birthing process. The movement through the birth canal can be a traumatic experience. A child can spend hours stuck in one position. A difficult delivery puts stress on an infant's immature nervous system. Listed are some conditions that may benefit from chiropractic care: excessive crying, trouble sleeping, gas or reflux/colic, asthma and allergies, vomiting after feedings, ear infections.

Chiropractic care for children offers your family a solid foundation for wellness. Throughout pregnancy, birth, and childhood, the chiropractic lifestyle offers choices and benefits for your greater health and well being.
