Pediatric Chiropractic at Family Wellness Chiropractic

Just as your nervous system can become blocked by the daily stresses of life, so can your child’s. Starting with the stress of being born, infants’ and children’s bodies are subjected to a lot of change, growth and stress, all of which can affect the function of their nervous system.

Since the nervous system controls all functions of the body, if it isn’t functioning optimally, kids can experience various symptoms, many of which are considered common childhood complaints. But just because they’re common doesn’t mean they’re normal!

Chiropractic adjustments can help restore optimal nervous system function, so your child can thrive.
NEW Patients

At Family Wellness Chiropractic, our chiropractors all have advanced education and extensive experience working with our littlest patients.

Our Approach

Our techniques are safe and gentle enough even for newborns. We schedule a little extra time when seeing infants, because there are things we know you can’t always plan for—like a baby suddenly hungry or one who has a big blow-out—and we don’t want the experience to be rushed or stressful for you or your baby. We’ll often adjust infants while lying on Mom or Dad, and many babies sleep right through the adjustment.

For toddlers, it’s usually a quicker appointment because they’re active and want to move around. It often looks like we’re just playing with the kiddos, because we’ll adjust them on the floor or wherever they’re most comfortable.

For every child, we take things at their pace and build trust and rapport with them before doing any adjustments. We’ll never force a child who isn’t ready for an adjustment.

We also offer parents information and education about other types of natural health and wellness options that can improve and support their family’s health.
