From birth to their 18th birthday, every bump, bruise and ear infection affects the developing spine and nervous system. Spinal patterns begin as early as birth, even in a routine and uncomplicated labor and delivery. Coming into the world can be really hard on a child's spine. Chiropractic has evidence showing that it can help colic, spitting up and GERD, trouble sleeping, ear infections, constipation and difficult breastfeeding. As kids grow older chiropractic has been shown to have a positive effect on the symptoms of ADHD, bed-wetting, allergies, torticollis, asthma and to help kids bounce back from injuries faster.
Our chiro-kids are awesome and very well-adjusted, if you know what we mean!

Changing Lives From Day One
Once your beautiful baby has arrived, we can evaluate them for issues that have arisen during pregnancy and labor. About 50% of the newborns we see have no need for an adjustment. The ones that do require care can sleep better, reduce nursing difficulties, eliminate torticollis (wry neck) and many other issues that can result from spinal and cranial stress. We urge new moms to come in with their babies within a few weeks of delivery.
The time period between birth and age two is the most dynamic phase of brain and neural development. In the first year of your child's development they undergo approximately 50% of their total spine growth and 60% of their total brain growth!
The techniques used at our family health chiropractic office are specific, gentle and appropriate for children and infants. Many parents comment they see almost immediate improvement in the well-being of their child.
Early interference to the Nervous System (difficult birthing, assisted birthing such as C-sections, childhood trauma, etc) can create permanent postural changes to your child or slow their natural development. Over time this can affect the hormonal, immune, neurological, homeostatic, cognitive, behavioral and functional capacity of the child. After gently adjusting a child, parents have reported improvements in reaching milestones, colic, sleeping, behavior and attitude, nursing, bowel movements and immune function.
Throughout pregnancy, birth, and childhood, the chiropractic lifestyle offers
choices and benefits for your greater health and well-being.
