Pediatric Care

Supporting optimal function from the beginning.

Chiropractic care is not just for adults. In fact, there are more and more parents seeing the many benefits of their children seeing a chiropractor every single day. Some of the benefits are improved sleep, improved behavior and attitude, and improved immune system function.

Children encounter many physical stresses in their life that you may not realize. The first stresses often occur during the birth process. During the second stage of labor the uterine pressure increases. The average force applied to a baby’s head at that time is 12 lbs during a contraction and 27 lbs during a volitional push (which is why it’s most effective to push during a contraction – you greatly increase the pressure). These stresses can cause your child’s spine to have issues in growth and development.

The first thing that we will do when you see us is take a thorough history of your child’s health. You are able to explain to us any complaints that you or your child may have. We will then do a complete physical examination of your child’s spine. We want to ensure that all areas are working and functioning correctly.

 

Our entire staff enjoys seeing children in our practice and will always create a positive experience for them. We know that starting chiropractic care while young can create wonderful benefits and ensure that your child grows up as healthy as possible. Many issues you experience when you are older were likely caused when you were younger. We are here to correct any issues that may be occurring. We are always here to answer any of your questions or concerns.
