It is often that I will hear a patient talk about their kids' achievements as well as, a lot of times, their health issues. I ask them why they do not bring their children with them when they come in for their visit to the office, instead of leaving them home to develop the same problems that the patient/parents have suffered through. Often they are not aware that children are in need of care more so sometimes than the parent themselves.
Starting from when the child is subject to the birth process, which is one of the most severe traumas in life, to the playing and roughhousing that goes on later in life, care is necessary. During this time the body is developing. Stop and realize that this is a very critical time in the developmental process.
Through chiropractic care many childhood problems including but not limited to; irritability, bed-wetting, torticollis/wryneck, and chronic ear infections can be corrected or avoided all together.

Why do Newborns and Children Get Adjusted?
Many of the health problems you experience today may have stemmed from a less than ideal childbirth or lack of pediatric wellness care. This is changing, although even today's "natural" childbirth methods can affect an infant's spine. Preliminary studies suggest that colic, unusual crying, decreased appetite, ear infections or erratic sleeping habits can be signs of spinal distress. Pediatric adjustments are gentle. Knowing where to adjust, the doctor applies no more pressure than you'd use to test the ripeness of fruit.
