Helping Children Develop Optimally

Pediatric chiropractic is a gentle chiropractic adjustment designed for the unique needs of newborns, babies and children. As the nervous system controls all function in the body, it’s important for kids as young as a day old to get off to great start in life. At Optimum Wellness Chiropractic, our job is to optimize the function of all the kiddos that walk through our door.

Research shows that nine of out ten natural, healthy births end with the baby having at least one subluxation (misalignment) in the spine. Birth is a physically traumatic experience to the neck and shoulders of the infant. That’s why it’s vital to have kids checked by a chiropractor as soon as possible. By doing so, you can help your child avoid many of the common problems that accompany developmental growth.

What Conditions Respond Well to Pediatric Chiropractic?

We can tell you with confidence that children that are under chiropractic care have balanced nervous systems. Our care is safe and gentle, and kids love to come in to see Dr. Rick. Here are some conditions that usually indicate poor communication between the brain and the body. These conditions respond favorably to our experienced care:

  • Colic
  • Constipation
  • Ear infections
  • Failure to thrive
  • Feeding difficulties
  • Poor social interaction
  • Reflux
  • Seizures
  • Sensory issues
  • Sleep difficulties
