Early Checkups for Lifelong Health

You know how important it is to take your child to the dentist, starting at an early age. Though their first set of teeth fall out, these early checkups are vital to their oral and overall health. We should apply the same consideration to the spine, which is formed in utero and remains the spine we have for our entire lives.

The Benefits of Pediatric Chiropractic

As your child starts to roll, crawl and walk, you may notice that they’re doing so in a strange manner. They move in the most efficient way possible, so their body may not be functioning as it should on one side. Chiropractic can stabilize and regulate the function of their body.

After an adjustment, parents often report their child(ren) are sleeping better, don’t spit up as much and have more regular bowel movements Chiropractic can help stabilize and regulate the function of every body, even the tiniest ones.


How long will it take to see results for my child?

If your child is suffering, you want to see a quick result. We get it! There’s no formula to determine when your child will start responding. We can tell you that it’s usually quicker than it is for an adult, as a child’s problems haven’t been present as long.

What if my child feels apprehensive about visiting the chiropractor?

The doctor’s office can be a scary place for a child. We encourage you to call us “chiropractor” instead of “doctor” to help them release any negative feelings they may have. We always talk to your child directly at their visits, getting on their level and helping them feel empowered and ready to be adjusted.

Are your techniques for pediatric chiropractic gentle?

The pressure we use on babies and children is like what you’d need to test the ripeness of a tomato. There is no twisting involved. We have a horse table for your child to lie on that kids think is fun. We may use the Activator instrument or adjust your child while you’re holding them.

How early should I start bringing my children in?

Even uncomplicated births are traumatic. We encourage you to bring your baby in as early as the first month of life. Babies and young children can’t tell us when they’re in pain. With these checkups, you can ensure that your baby grows and develops as they should.
