Pediatric Chiropractic Care

Why would a newborn, infant or young child need to see a chiropractor?

New patients or visitors to our office often ask why there are so many children… they all have back pain? The answer is no, but they do all have developing nervous systems that are inside their rapidly growing spines. Just as in an adult spine, dysfunctional spinal joints or subluxation can irritate the nerves and cause problems elsewhere in the body.

Sometimes, subluxation in pediatric patients is a result of traumatic birth — from forceps or suction delivery, in-utero-constraint, breech delivery, medication, sedentary lifestyle, or just plain old stress. Even C-section deliveries are often performed under emergency conditions, involving lots of medication and anxiety. C-section babies also miss out on the vital cranial and spinal moulding process that occurs by passage through the birth canal. And we also see lots of children who don’t have any symptoms at all! Regular spinal check-ups can help detect problems before they happen…..prevention at its best!

Some of the common conditions we see in the office include:

  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Attention deficit disorders
  • Bed-wetting
  • Upper respiratory infections
  • Ear infections
  • Growing pains
  • Infantile colic
