Chiropractic wellness care isn’t just for adults! Children can benefit from regular check ups and adjustments as well.
There are actually a large number of reasons for a child to see a chiropractor. In fact, the #1 reason children see a chiropractor is for their wellness. Many parents are now choosing to be proactive with their children’s health, rather than reactive. This fits perfectly with chiropractic, which is wellness-based and thus, proactive and preventative. Many of our parents/patients bring their newborn infants to our office on the way home from the hospital, before even going to the pediatrician.

Common reasons for children to visit a chiropractor include: difficulty nursing, colic, bed-wetting, and ear/sinus infections, which are all conditions often caused by problems with the upper neck that likely were caused by birth trauma such as C-section or forceps delivery. Parents also bring their kids to a chiropractor for care of colds and flu-like issues.
