Pediatric Chiropractic

Dr Michelle using Activator on girlDue to the many problems caused by increased C-section rates and poor infant health Dr. Michelle believes it’s vital to have your child checked by a pediatric chiropractor as soon as possible after birth. There’s medical research that shows that upward of 80 to 85% of all normal, natural birth have some upper cervical joint dysfunction as a result of delivery.

The Importance of Removing Misalignments

Subluxation is a misalignment within the spine that produces stress and poor health in the body. Subluxations are common due to the birth process, particularly births that required interventions. Chiropractors are trained to detect and remove these subluxations. Doing so will help to ensure that your newborn is off to a healthy start.

Is Chiropractic Safe for Kids?

Yes! It’s not only safe but gentle as well. Pediatric chiropractor Dr. Michelle only uses light pressure on children. With babies, for example, there’s not much more pressure than you would use to check to see if a tomato was ripe without denting it.

If a baby begins life with tension at the top of the spine, they won’t be able to flourish as they should. That’s why moms need to get their babies checked as soon as they feel ready to get out of the house.

Did you know that the most amount of neuro-development happens from age 0 to 2? If we have that interference in the upper cervical spine, the very top of the neck, right where the spine meets the head, that can create a disturbance in how efficiently and effectively that body works.

Those are things that are not necessarily going to show up as medical symptoms. You can get a so-called clean bill of health. The pediatrician may say that everything’s fine, and your child is developing normally. However, there are underlying issues that are not going to be discovered because it’s not something that is typically looked at outside of chiropractic.

Kids today are using their bodies hard as young athletes. Seasons are longer, and children are playing at a more competitive level. Many children come to our practice who have sustained injuries due to their sports. Those injuries take them out of playing the sports they love. Chiropractic can help them to recover and repair.
