Chiropractic care for children is safe, gentle, and effective. Dr. Melissa has special training in adjusting children and can provide an adjustment specially adapted for your child's age, height, and weight. For a small infant, she adjusts the child with the same amount of force you use to type on a computer keyboard!
Most parents report that their children enjoy their chiropractic adjustments and look forward to subsequent visits. They also report that their children experience a greater level of health while under regular chiropractic care.
What conditions/illnesses can chiropractic help with?
Chiropractors look at the spine to see what areas can benefit from being adjusted. When the child is adjusted, the nerves that exit this part of the spine are stimulated and can function optimally. That means that the areas of your body where those nerves connect with will also function to the best of their ability. This includes the circulatory, respiratory, digestive, hormonal, eliminative, nervous system and immune systems.
Chiropractic does not treat any condition or disease. The purpose of chiropractic is to find and reduce stress to the nervous system, allowing the person to receive improved function and quality of life.
