Maintaining health and wellness starts at an early age. From the moment we take our first steps, chiropractic care offers many benefits that support overall well-being. Not only can it ensure good physical development, but any underlying muscle issues or chronic pain can be identified and addressed right away.

We understand that parents may be selective with the types of medical care they seek for their children, but chiropractic is a safe, natural and effective therapy for kids of all ages. Pediatric adjustments are specifically designed with the growing body in mind. You can feel confident the treatment your child receives will have a positive effect on future physical growth. Families are always grateful to leave our office with happy, healthy children!

Spinal Health for Children

A child’s spine grows very rapidly in the first few years of life. Unfortunately, the natural gracelessness of young children can impede on this development and lead to irreparable damage, if left untreated. Falls and injuries are common at an early age, but they can compromise spinal health.

We see many kids with vertebral subluxation, a condition that shifts the vertebrae and irritates spinal nerves, which impacts movement and development. Fortunately, chiropractic adjustments allow a child’s body to return to normal function.

How Treatment Works

Our number one goal is to improve the overall health of your child. We understand younger patients may be nervous to see a doctor, so our friendly staff makes every effort to ensure they feel relaxed, comfortable and safe.

During the first visit, a full body exam is performed to gain a better understanding of your child’s physical and neurological condition. This evaluation helps us identify any issues and develop an effective, gentle plan for treatment and correction.

Conditions We Treat

Scoliosis, the most common spinal deformity that affects young children, is an abnormal curve of the spinal column. Although the spine has natural curvature, this disorder bends the vertebrae too far out of position. When addressed at a young age, chiropractic can help correct scoliosis and prevent the onset of related spinal ailments. We encounter and treat many other conditions that respond well to chiropractic care, including (but not limited to):

  • ADD & learning disabilities
  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Colic
  • Ear aches & infections
  • Sleep disorders

The purpose of our care is to promote spine health and prevent the onset of future health problems. In some cases, patients who take medication for certain conditions are able to eliminate prescription drugs from their daily lives!
