Why should every child see a pediatric chiropractor?

Children deserve to enter the world as healthy as possible. While we support a natural approach to birth whenever possible, we acknowledge the effect trauma can have on both baby and mom during the labor and delivery process, particularly when medical interventions such as vacuum extraction, episiotomy, caesarean sections and other surgical procedures are employed. In the current healthcare economy, birth trauma is frequently ignored, overlooked and in many cases misdiagnosed.

Pediatric chiropractors are specially and extensively trained to detect signs of both macro- and micro-trauma and their deleterious effects on a child’s developing nervous system. When minute misalignments known as vertebral subluxations put pressure, stress or torque on nerves or the spinal cord, chiropractors gently restore proper alignment thereby removing insult to the nervous system and restoring proper function.

In many cases, parents have reported resolution of symptoms associated with infantile colic, constipation, chronic ear infections, bed-wetting, torticollis, scoliosis, acid-reflux, asthma and even ADHD.
The effects of an adjustment on an infant, toddler or school-aged child can be profound because it eliminates not just the symptom of many common ailments, but the central cause.
