Why Does My Child Need Chiropractic Care?

At Innate Family Chiropractic, we hear this question quite often, and we fully understand why. We have found most people think that chiropractic for kids is the same as chiropractic for adults. In fact, they are completely different. We use a much lighter technique for children, and routinely work with infants as young as a few days old.

Birth is a very physical experience for your baby. In addition to the trauma of being pushed out, and any necessary intervention, they’re introduced to all new senses. They experience light and sound, having to breathe air, and work for food instead of getting it through the umbilical cord. That’s a lot for your little one to absorb!

Age Makes a Difference

A child’s nervous system can have a very subtle accumulation of stress, manifesting in unwanted symptoms based on their age. This could result from unnoticed stress during the birth, poor quality formula causing digestive problems, or similar issues.

We tend to see colic, latch issues, and digestive stress in newborns and infants. Ear infections can start with toddlers, with motor tics or seizures appearing a little older. Autism is usually diagnosed around 2-3 years old. Immune system issues are common with school-age children. And, of course, trauma can happen at any age.

Conditions We Have Seen Success With

The reasons we see children can vary, but some examples are

  • Colic
  • Difficult birth
  • -Section birth
  • Reflux/GERD
  • Digestive issues
  • Sleep issues
  • Ear infections
  • Immune challenges
  • Bed wetting
  • Sensory disorders
  • Behavioral disorders
  • Autism
  • And many more

Both Dr. Chris and Dr. Adana are certified pediatric chiropractors, and have specialized in chiropractic care for children since they established their practice. They even provided care to their newborn daughter; she received her first adjustment six hours after her birth.

We Don’t Guess, We Test!

We take any guesswork out of the equation when working with kids, by utilizing the latest technology to determine your child’s nervous system function. Depending on the age of your child, we perform 1-3 scans using the INSiGHT™ Subluxation Station.

INSiGHT™ scans are non-invasive and completely safe. They help us pinpoint where the problems are, so we can correct them. We don’t take X-rays on children unless there is recent, relevant trauma.

Results You Can See

We do a lot of work on development in children with autism. It’s always gratifying when non-verbal children start to speak. Sensory changes are also possible. One little boy didn’t like anything wet. When Mom picked him up at school one day, she found him splashing at the water table with the other kids.

We also work with lots of youth athletes to heal injuries and prevent future ones. Building strength and endurance helps with their performance and keeps them healthier and safer.

Practicing What We Preach

When our doctors’ daughter was born, her umbilical cord was wrapped twice around her head, causing a rotational problem. Her head was slightly to one side, which manifested as a latch issue. Dr. Chris did adjustments each of her first three days, and the issue disappeared.
