Chiropractic is for Kids, Too!
Childhood is full of falls, twists, bumps, and jumps, and each one has the potential to push your child's spine out of alignment. Why not find out for yourself what millions have known for over a century? Chiropractic is a safe, gentle, and conservative approach to health care!
"Growing Up" with Chiropractic
The growing years are the most important years for your child. From birth through adolescence, your child's body experiences rapid growth and constant change. That's why it's so important that your child's physical and mental health are maintained.
Why risk your child's good health during these critical years of development? Now is the time to schedule your child's spinal exam!
You can have confidence that chiropractic is safe and effective care for your little one.
"Childhood is the best time to begin a program of chiropractic care."
Your child can find relief from pain and illness, without the risks and harmful side effects associated with drugs and surgery.
The truth is, childhood is the best time to begin chiropractic care. Most conditions are easily and effectively corrected, because kids tend to heal even faster than adults. And children not only respond well to chiropractic, they love it!
Patients all over the world confirm what so many scientific studies have reported: chiropractic works for young and old alike!
If you're a mom, dad, or caretaker, we don't need to tell you how often "little ones" fall, bump, and crash! You know what to do for minor cuts and bruises, but bandages and "T.L.C." may not work for your child's "hidden" musculoskeletal injuries.
The development of a strong and healthy musculoskeletal system is critical to your child's future well-being. That's why your child should be examined by a Doctor of Chiropractic on a regular basis.
"When spinal misalignments go untreated, your child's body continues to grow. An injured spine will simply grow misaligned, leading to degenerative or permanent conditions later in life."
Chiropractic Works for "Kid-Sized" Injuries
Most parents schedule regular dental and pediatric check-ups for their children, but what about spinal check-ups? The spine is literally the body's lifeline. This delicate structure houses and protects the spinal cord, which contains millions of nerves. These nerves are the brain's "lines of communication" with every single cell in your child's body. The spinal cord also sends energy to the rest of the body. If your child's spine is injured, spinal misalignments, or subluxations, can occur. Simply stated, when the spinal column gets out of alignment, the nerves that pass through the vertebrae to the rest of the body can become irritated or pinched.
Spinal misalignments can cause t body's vital systems to malfunction, leaving your child more vulnerable to illness and injury. Spinal injuries are not limited to severe accidents, but can occur due to everyday wear and tear. Don't wait until your child is in pain to schedule a spinal exam! Chiropractors emphasize the location and correction of spinal injuries before they become more serious. However, because we are concerned about your child's total health, we will be happy to refer your child should they require the assistance of a specialist. Regular adjustments are an essential ingredient for healthy children! With gentle, expert hands can restore your child's spinal health.

Help For Little Kids with ‘Big’ Problems

More than two-thirds of all children will have one or more episodes of ear infections by the age of three. A 1996 study of a group of children with ear infections and discomfort found that 93% of the study group reported improvement with chiropractic care.
A 1989 study of colicky infants in Denmark reports a success rate of 94% among the study group following a program of chiropractic care.
