Pediatric chiropractic is safe for kids of any age, from the tiniest of newborns through all stages of childhood. We use gentle adjusting techniques that allow your baby, child or teen to feel comfortable.
Children of all ages have everything to gain from a healthy nervous system. All aspects of a child’s life,from physical and immune system health to brain power and self-esteem, rely on proper neurological development.
While children’s brains and bodies are learning to adapt, grow and function properly, they are also learning how to think, act and express themselves in the world. These critical periods of growth, from infancy through the teenage years, are what set your child on the path toward health, happiness and success.

And most importantly - helping your child reach their full potential in life!
There is no other time in a child's life where more critical development is taking place than during the first weeks and months, which is why chiropractic care immediately after birth can have such a profound effect on a child's development. A difficult birth can cause trauma or underlying injury to your newborn's spine and central nervous system. Even a normal, healthy birth is a big and stressful event for an infant!
As your child continues to grow and develop, their spine undergoes various levels of stress as they learn to crawl, walk, play and become involved in sports and new activities. And it's not only the physical stuff that causes neurological stress. Children are more sensitive and susceptible to chemical, social, emotional and mental stresses, as well.
The toxins in our food, air, water and medication; new pressures on their sense of identity from peers, social media and our changing society; and increasing academic expectations, hurdles and hoops to jump through are all part of the stressful environment we call childhood. In many ways, kids today are enduring more stress than ever before and it is coming at them faster and earlier than previous generations. The result of these experiences is stress and interference to the nervous system of your child.
The purpose of pediatric chiropractic is to alleviate that stress and assure that your child has the greatest possible chance to overcome these obstacles and thrive.
