Pediatric Chiropractic 

Chiropractors are neuromuscular experts - like a dentist who checks teeth and teaches proper dental hygiene, your child's chiropractor will check their nerves, muscles and bones for normal function, movement, and posture.  One of our primary goals in chiropractic is to teach children proper spinal hygiene and overall good health habits. This way we can reduce and hopefully prevent many of the common problems in our muscles, bones and joints that we see later in adult life.
 

We also see children for sports injuries treatment.  We utilize a wide variety of soft tissue techniques, adjustments, and specific therapies to ensure a quick return to action. Many other young athletes will see us for therapeutic exercise programs to reduce injuries and improve athletic performance. Others will come in before a competition or performance for a ‘sports tune-up’. We will be sure their body is moving properly, that their muscles are stretched and flexible, and that they are feeling the best they can be when entering their event.

Benefits for Children/Adolescent:

  • Improved athletic performance

  • Effective recovery from a sports injury or accident

  • More mobility in joints or spine

  • Increased sleep quality

  • Preventing or managing poor posture/scoliosis

  • Decreased neck and back pain

  • Relief from headaches or growing pains

Chiropractic care for babies is extremely soft and gentle there is no twisting, cracking or popping. It typically consists of mobilizations and light manual muscle massage in areas that need attention or some relaxing. Chiropractors take a detailed history and physical assessment to identify any areas of tension or restriction in the musculoskeletal system. We talk all about aspects of your child's health, as well as the pregnancy and birth. 
        

 During an initial assessment we look at: 

  • primitive reflexes & neurological evaluation 

  • orthopedic & range of motion evaluation

  • developmental milestones 

Common conditions we see in infants:

  • Facial tension/TMJ dysfunction

  • Feeding/latch difficulties

  • Torticollis (head turning preference)

  • Plagiocephaly 

  • Tethered oral ties (TOTs) i.e. tongue ties, lip, buccal 

  • Pre- and post- frenectomy bodywork

  • Colic, reflux, or digestive problems

  • Bedwetting

  • Difficulty with coordination, crawling, walking

  • Sleep problems
