Children and Chiropractic Care

Children of all ages need chiropractic care! Chiropractic treatment may offer numerous advantages to these young patients including improved posture, reduced back pain and anxiety relief as well as helping their digestive issues and strengthening immunity so they are better equipped to fend off viruses or illnesses.
Chiropractic adjustments for babies and children are safe. Chiropractors specialize in using gentle pressure to restore proper alignment without creating that unsettling popping noise that adults typically experience when receiving chiropractic adjustments.
Children, particularly newborns and infants, can experience significant levels of birthing stress that can result in neck and back problems causing discomfort. Chiropractors offer effective solutions to alleviate such discomfort and restore normal function.
By using gentle spinal manipulation techniques chiropractors facilitate brain-body communication and ensure a healthier spine and as a result a healthier nervous system for your children. This is crucial since misalignments in the spine can lead to pain, coordination issues, and decreased immunity as they grow into adults.


Through chiropractic manipulations that correct spinal misalignments that interfere with nerves that control digestion; chiropractic care can also alleviate stomach issues like reflux, bloating and constipation. Chiropractic can play an essential role in supporting a strong immune system by relieving stress off of areas of pressure in your spine that lead to subluxation or misalignments which in turn interfere with nerves responsible for digestive functions. Even though kids cannot always express how they’re feeling, a chiropractor will be able to identify any digestive problems causing discomfort to your child and restore normal function through spinal adjustments to his/her nervous and digestive system – helping minimize acid reflux, IBS symptoms, constipation or other digestive disorders.


Sleep is essential to the proper physical and emotional development of healthy children. If a spinal misalignment is causing discomfort, chiropractic adjustments can help your child’s nervous system, so they can rest easier at night and enjoy uninterrupted restorative sleep.


Many children engage in sports and other activities that may lead to bumps, bruises and other minor injuries that need immediate attention. Chiropractors specialize in recognizing these micro traumas early so that any long-term health concerns don’t develop in later years. Chiropractors can help prevent future issues by correcting your child’s posture. Additionally, they can assist with stomach issues, anxiety or phobias, motor skills development, sensory integration issues and sensory processing disorders to make sure they excel at their sport of choice.


Pediatric chiropractic adjustment entails manipulating muscles and joints throughout the entire body, particularly around the spine. This relieves pressure from bones and joints which in turn improves communication between nerves in the nervous system and other parts of the body – ultimately increasing coordination and overall brain health, even correcting behavioral problems like ADHD.


Pediatric chiropractors not only offer spinal manipulation services, but also advice regarding posture, hydration, diet and lifestyle choices that promote overall wellness in children. This could include helping reduce their risk for asthma, allergies, constipation and digestive issues. Chiropractic therapy helps alleviate bedwetting by correcting spinal misalignments and clearing away nerve interference, as well as by improving immune system function, thus decreasing sickness time.
Your child’s nervous system coordinates every other system in your child’s body, including blood flow, bone growth and brain function. Misalignments within their spine or joints can interfere with this regulation system and should be corrected.
Chiropractic care for children of all ages has proven to be invaluable. As described, many infants have found relief from colic, breastfeeding issues and difficulty moving thanks to chiropractic adjustments; while older kids benefit from relief from allergies, asthma and bedwetting. Pediatric chiropractors may even help treat ear infections or respiratory conditions.
