Children & Chiropractic

Our particularly gentle adjustment technique is especially suited for children, and we have served countless children over the years. I’ve worked with kids of all ages, from newborns to teenagers, and it’s surprising how much tension they hold in their bodies.

For example, babies can enter the world with subluxations due to conditions while in utero or as a result of the process of birth itself. I’ve helped children who have suffered from with colic, asthma, chronic ear infections, sleep disorders, and digestive problems.

I feel that it’s important to understand that I’m not “treating” these conditions themselves. Instead, I help to unlock the tension that kids carry within their bodies in order to allow their young systems to function as they naturally should.

ADD and ADHD have become endemic in our society. It saddens me to think of all the children being medicated today. I’ve found that many children diagnosed with ADD and ADHD can be helped with chiropractic care.

Many children who have come to see me are locked in a state of “fight or flight” and their nervous systems are significantly overwhelmed. The care they receive makes a big difference and calms them down considerably.

There have been many clinical studies that have shown the positive affects of chiropractic and children with ADHD. You can view these studies in the “Research” section of our website.
