Pediatric Care

boy on monkey barsAt our office, we see children of all ages, from days-old-newborns to toddlers and teens. There’s no set time frame to start care as it’s whenever the parent is comfortable; speak to our doctor about how we can help.

Chiropractic may help a child develop those critical motor skills, and reach their milestones. This method of health care keeps the nervous system healthy, which helps the whole body prosper. We love helping children enjoy optimal health!

The Power of Preventative Care

Children are very moldable, as nothing has set in as it has in adults. If we take care of their overall health while they are young, we set them up to have a better chance of avoiding problems as they get older. Helping them grow and thrive as they are meant to do.

Being under chiropractic care throughout life, beginning in childhood, helps our bodies function at their peak. So, for children, this form of natural care allows them to be as close to the best version of themselves as possible.

Providing Gentle Adjustments

It’s understandable when parents who are bringing their child to the chiropractor for the first time wonder how their little one will be adjusted. There’s a big difference in the way we adjust babies and children compared to adults. Our doctors have taken special training—both in school and extra courses outside—to provide your child with the best care possible.

At Balanced Life Chiropractic, we use extremely gentle techniques for children. As children’s spines are easy to adjust, we only need to use slight pressure on an area—about the amount used to check a tomato for ripeness—to achieve the desired result.

How We Help

Children can be hard on their bodies, taking a lot of spills and falls, especially during the crawling and walking stages.

Some problems we have had success with include:
  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Colic
  • Digestive issues
  • Ear infections
  • Headaches
  • Scoliosis
  • Sleep issues
  • And more

Making a Connection

We get down on their level, show them what’s going to happen, and ask age-appropriate questions, allowing them to feel in control of the situation. We also have an assortment of toys in the room to distract them. It may take several visits to make a connection, so they feel safe.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do children need to come in for care as often as adults?

In many cases, kids heal and adapt much quicker than adults. Most of the time, kids require less frequent care.

Why should I have my infant adjusted soon after they’re born?

Natural childbirth is a traumatic process not only for the mother but for the child as well. The force that is usually used to pull the baby out by the head or neck can cause many subluxations to a newborn child. Chiropractic gently removes those subluxations that may be present in your child’s nervous system, allowing your newborn to experience healthy growth and development.

Can chiropractic help my child’s posture?

Because so many kids these days spend significant time on their digital devices, such as texting or watching videos or shows on their tablet, postural problems, known as “Tech Neck”, can develop. Our natural care may help restore critical movement to their spines.
