More and more parents are seeking chiropractic care for their children. Many spinal problems seen in adults began as early as birth.  Many parents choose to have their newborns checked to ensure proper alignment. As the child grows, they go through many milestones such as learning to hold up their head, sit, crawl and walk and these are important times to have a child checked by a Doctor of Chiropractic. 

As the child begins to participate in regular childhood activities like skating or riding a bike, small yet significant spinal misalignments may occur. If neglected, the injuries during this period of rapid growth may lead to more serious problems later in life. Subtle trauma throughout childhood will affect the future development of the spine leading to impaired nervous system function. Any interference to the vital nerve system will adversely affect the body’s ability to function at its best.

Some of the common reasons a parent may bring an infant or child to a chiropractor include, but are not limited to:

  • Breastfeeding issues, which can be due to a poor latch or a neck constraint/inability to turn head

  • Head tilt or torticollis

  • Inability to rotate head in one direction

  • Back arching or stiffness

  • Follow up after a tongue or lip tie revision

  • Crawling or gait dysfunction

  • Altered sleep patterns

  • Detecting and correcting scoliosis


Our Chiropractors will take a case history and perform a chiropractic exam to determine if spinal subluxations exist. Chiropractic adjusting procedures are modified to fit a child’s size, weight, and unique spinal condition. They are both gentle and specific to the child’s developing spinal structures. Most parents report that their children enjoy their chiropractic adjustments and look forward to subsequent visits. Chiropractic care is a safe and gentle option for care and we look forward to seeing all our little patients when they come in!
