Pediatric Care

Gentle Chiropractic care not only removes this nerve interference, but also stimulates the immune system while enhancing your child’s overall health. We use a combination of adjusting techniques, cranial-sacral therapy, myofascial release, soft tissue techniques and stretching to enhance your child’s health and well-being. Our evaluations also include looking at nutrition and exercise as fun ways to be healthy and have energy.

Common Conditions
Irritation to a young person’s nervous system can begin in-utero. The baby’s position in-utero and during delivery (natural or cesarean) can create stress on their nervous system. Even a “normal, healthy” birth can induce 40-50 pounds of pressure on a newborn’s neck and spine. Some of the symptoms to watch for include:

  • Ear infections
  • Difficulty Breast Feeding
  • Colic
  • Reflux
  • Sleep Disturbances
  • Constipation or Diarrhea
  • Tilted Head Position

Any bumps and falls can also create joint dysfunction and nerve irritation to a young person during the developmental years. This may present as:

  • Headaches
  • Stomach Aches, Heartburn, or Indigestion
  • Growing Pains
  • Sports Injuries
  • Osgood-Schlatter’s (Jumper’s Knee)
  • Skin Disorders
  • Difficulty Sleeping
  • Asthma
  • Bed-wetting
  • Allergies
  • Difficulty Concentrationg or staying focused
