Children

Children can benefit from chiropractic care before they are born, by having a mother who receives prenatal chiropractic check-ups. A healthy diet, proper exercise, a stress-free environment, and a chiropractic lifestyle help prepare for a happy, healthy baby.

The birth process may be one of the most traumatic events of our lives. Even so-called "natural" birthing methods can stress a still-developing spine. The resulting irritation to the nervous system can be the cause of many newborn health complaints. Colic, unexplained crying, poor appetite, breathing problems, and allergic reactions can often be traced to nervous system dysfunction caused by a malfunctioning spine.

Head support, followed by crawling, and a baby's first few steps should be followed by chiropractic checkups. If neglected, the bumps and falls during this period of rapid growth may lead to serious spinal deformities later in life. This can set the stage for scoliosis, "growing pains," and a weakened immune system response.

Chiropractic adjusting techniques are modified to fit a child's size, weight, and unique spinal problem. Parents often report that their children seem healthier than other kids their age.

All children, especially if they are ill, need a body free blockages to the flow of energy and information in their nervous systems. If your child is suffering from any of the following, it is essential to get his or her body checked for subluxations:

  • FeverPhoto: Babies should get adjusted too!
  • Croup
  • Poor Posture
  • Constipation
  • Ear Infections
  • Neck aches
  • Sore Throat
  • Cough
  • Bronchitis
  • Loss of Hearing

  • Sinus conditions
  • Allergies

Review By Our Satisfied Patient

  • "The staff was very helpful to make sure that I knew what my treatment would entail and the payment options available to me. When I met Dr. Willert for the first time, he made me feel comfortable and at ease with everything that was going on. And it still hasn't changed 6 months later"
