GROWING HEALTHY KIDS FROM DAY ONE
We are all born with the
superpower to heal!
The nervous system (brain, spinal cord, and nerves) is the master controller of the body. A child's development, and their ability to adapt to stressors, is directly related to the health of their nervous system. The spine and skull act like armor to this system! When the joints of the spine becomes misaligned or stuck, the healing signals that come from the brain and control EVERY PROCESS in the body can become altered.
The earliest physical stress kids experience comes long before they fall off their tricycle, or take a tumble on the jungle gym. We ALL come into this world having experienced a physical stress, and this is birth. This process can be traumatic to little ones, and is a major reason I stress the importance of getting babies checked for spinal injury. Without the care of a chiropractor, these stuck joints in the spine can go undetected.
Approximately 65% of neurological development happens in a child's first year! This is the fastest your child will be developing in their lifetime. Let's make sure their nervous system is powered up and working at its greatest strength.

We are often asked...
Why do kids need chiropractic?
Many people are surprised when I tell them my main focus is seeing kids! Some of the most life changing chiropractic adjustments happen in childhood, and parents agree. The care I provide helps children with ADHD, allergies, anxiety, asthma, autism, bed-wetting, colic, constipation, ear infections, learning and behavioral issues, sensory processing disorder, and much more!
IS IT SAFE FOR KIDS?
The easiest way to answer this one is... YES! Chiropractic care for children, and patients of all ages, has repeatedly been shown to be one of the safest forms of health care available. The adjustments I provide are incredibly gentle. With babies, the pressure I use to adjust is similar to checking the ripeness of a tomato at the grocery store.
HOW SOON AFTER BIRTH CAN MY BABY BE ADJUSTED?
Many couples will bring their newborn to the chiropractor on their way home from the hospital. The birthing process is stressful for both mom and baby. They don't call it labor for nothing! Making sure your baby's spine is aligned and moving well is crucial in creating a healthy trajectory for growth and development.
