Chiropractic Care for Children and Infants

You might be asking yourself, “How would chiropractic medicine help infants or children?” The answer may surprise you. Today we see more and more pediatric conditions treated with chiropractic techniques. Why? Because chiropractic medicine is very non-invasive and drug-free way of treating conditions or injuries in children. Spinal conditions in children can lead to central motor impairment and developmental issues. Further side effects of spinal conditions in children are: sleeplessness, seizures, inability to focus, impairments of digestive systems, and a weaker immune system.

What causes such conditions or injuries in children that would require chiropractic medicine? Well, anything from a traumatic birth, to the daily slips and falls, and a  unsupported head and neck. The early years of a child’s life are the foundation for further development of their body and mind. If spinal functions are not restored to normal, it can result in developmental issues down the road. By treating these issues early, you can prevent developmental side effects from ever occurring. 

An extensive amount of research supports pediatric chiropractic treatment as a gentle and effective method for treating children with spinal and joint conditions. Conditions that can be treated with this chiropractic medicine include: colic, asthma, ear infections, sleeping issues, digestive issues, poor immunity, headaches, good neural plasticity, and much more.

Can you identify these conditions early? Yes, Dr. Brent Heater performs a thorough evaluation of your child’s spine and physical condition. Following the evaluation, Dr. Heater will use very gentle, precise techniques to correct any abnormalities along the spinal area. This ensures the nervous system has every opportunity to communicate clearly and develop properly.
