Pediatric Care

Chiropractic care is not just for pain relief, in fact, it was never intended to only be used for analgesic purposes. Relief of low back pain, neck pain, and headaches are some of the smallest benefits that you’ll ever get from chiropractic care.

Pediatric Care

From day 1 of life, kids’ bodies are constantly facing challenges. The birthing process, falls, sports injuries, accidents, smartphone or tablet use, emotional stressors and more can cause problems. A child’s spine can get out of alignment just like an adult’s, but they can’t always tell you what they’re feeling. You may notice symptoms like latching issues, colic, infantile reflux, constipation, lowered immunity, digestive issues, ear infections, ADHD, headaches and more.

By removing the stress on the child’s nervous system, we can help them experience better health and ensure they thrive.

Ear Infections

Ear infections are common in children, a frustrating and painful condition that is hard to treat. But a 1996 study from the Journal of Manipulative Physiology found that 93% of kids recovered from ear infections within 10 days of chiropractic care. The Journal of Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics found in another study that children with recurrent ear infections who had been receiving conventional medical treatment for six months with no relief improved at five visits to a chiropractor.


Chiropractic care can also help with one of the most frustrating conditions for babies (and parents). After just two to three adjustments, 91% of the132 parents surveyed by the European Journal of Chiropractic said their baby’s colic improved after two to three adjustments by a chiropractor. According to the Journal of Manipulative Physiology, 94% of 316 babies with colic were followed and found relief through chiropractic care.


A study published in the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research found that after two months of chiropractic care 90% of 81 children enrolled experienced a better quality of life, as did 76.5% of children surveyed for another study published in the Bulletin of the European Chiropractic Union.

Healthier Children Through Chiropractic

The spine protects the most important organ system in your body, the nervous system, which is made up of your brain which sends messages down your spinal cord and then from the spinal cord, those messages are sent out of billions of nerve fibers to every single organ, tissue and cell of your body. If there is any interference in this very intricate system, it can lead to a state of disharmony in the body such as organ malfunction, lowered immune system function, sickness, health challenges and disease. This interference is caused by misalignments of the spine called subluxations.

So how can a child have a subluxation or an interference in his or her nervous system? 

The birthing process can be difficult and can require vacuum extraction, forceps, or cesarean  section. Even in a “normal” delivery the doctor will generally pull the baby’s neck and head while working to free the shoulders to expedite delivery. This can cause damage to the spine, especially the cervical spine. 

The spinal damage that happens at birth has been found to cause health problems that can last into adulthood. As the child grows into a toddler, they begin to walk and fall hundreds of times. As they continue to grow into a child and adolescent, they are now much more active. Every time they run, jump, play sports, dance, or do gymnastics they impact their spines and their nervous systems. 

For these reasons, it is important to have your child’s spine checked for nerve interference, especially if your child suffers from health challenges. Latching issues, colic, constipation, frequent colds, asthma, ear infections, constipation, bed wetting, ADHD, sensory processing disorders, scoliosis, and growing pains are all signs that your child may have interference in their nervous system.

Parents are searching for a more natural and holistic way to keep their children healthy. Chiropractic care offers a gentle, safe, and drug free way to keep your family healthy. Include regular chiropractic assessments as part of your family’s health care routine.
