Why Kids Need Chiropractic Care
All the growth, change, and occasional bumps and bruises of childhood can put pressure on a child’s nervous system! This pressure can impede normal growth and development if not checked regularly. While children often don’t “feel” the symptoms of misalignments like adults do, their bodies often express nervous system inference through speech delays, sensory processing disorders, ADD/ADHD, ear infections, bedwetting, constipation, allergies/asthma.
What Are the Benefits of Pediatric Chiropractic Care?
Pediatric chiropractic allows a child to grow and develop without interference from pressure on the nervous system. When a child is free from nervous system pressure, parents report decreased symptoms of ADD/ADHD, reduced bedwetting, healing from frequent ear infections, decreased allergies/asthma, and improved speech development.
Regular chiropractic care can help with:
- Ear Infections
- Growing Pains
- Allergies /Asthma
- Speech Delay/Appraxia

New to Pediatric Chiropractic Care? Here’s What to Expect as a Parent
When you bring your child in to our office, he will receive a thorough chiropractic assessment that will allow us to get to the cause of your child’s health issues.
We take a digital nerve scan, digital posture analysis, and take a thorough health history – including details surrounding pregnancy and birth process – each piece of the assessment adding to the total health picture of your child. In some cases, we will take a digital x-ray if your child’s case indicates that need.
We then specialize in delivering a wellness plan which will be tailored to your child’s individual needs and issues, restoring your child to his highest state of wellbeing.

What is the science behind pediatric chiropractic care?
A chiropractic adjustment is the removal of pressure on the nervous system. Here’s an analogy – Dr. Eric LOVES analogies.
Think of a chiropractic adjustment working like a removing a kink in a water hose. When there is a kink in a hose, water cannot flow as needed to your plants – Remove the kink and water flows freely. When there is pressure from a misalignment at any level of the spine, the nervous system cannot send the information its needs to your organs, cells, and tissues – creating dis-ease in the body. When pressure along the spine is removed, information from the brain to all organs, cells, and tissues is restored!
Is chiropractic care dangerous for children?
Pediatric chiropractic is extremely safe and GENTLE. Children are adjusted with the pressure needed to check the ripeness of a tomato. When children are routinely adjusted they are often able to avoid more intense medications/treatments for conditions they are experiencing.
Children adjusted in our office have been able to cancel scheduled scoliosis surgeries, come off of ADD/ADHD medications, and stop regular laxatives- just to name a few! When a child’s nervous system is in tune, the body is able to function optimally!
Will my insurance cover pediatric chiropractic care?
