Chiropractic Care for Kids

pediatric_chiropractic_care.jpg

Getting adjusted as a newborn/infant/toddler is just as important as getting adjustments when you are an adult. A commonly asked question we get from our current patients is do we adjust the newborn/infant/toddler the same way as we adjust them? The answer to that question is not exactly. The technique we use on newborn/infant/toddlers is a much more gentle and the pressure we use is similar to the pressure you would use to check a tomato without  bruising the tomato. The similarity is that the newborn/infant/toddler still has the same healthy effects as the adult who gets adjusted. Due to the newborn/infant/toddlers growing state, we are able to use less pressure and force on them to make it a more comfortable visit for everyone.522166_538988362793412_1070068894_n.jpg

Here at The Spinal Garage we feel there is a growing need for primary health care providers who use natural methods which are safe, effective, and without side effects, especially for developing children. Many parents turn to chiropractic care for their children, especially after trying conventional medicine methods without seeing any results. Many more parents are bringing in their children soon after birth to have their spines checked; these babies are not sick! But, these parents realize that the birth process itself places stress on the developing spine. They don’t want to wait until symptoms develop and there is a problem!

Today we find more parents bringing their children to Total Health Systems for day-to-day heath concerns we’re all familiar with, such as: colds, sore throats, ear infections, fevers, colic, asthma, tonsillitis, allergies, bed-wetting, infections, pains, falls, stomach-aches, “growing pains”, and the hundred and one little and big things children go through as they grow up. 625668_270518243048454_83473955_n.jpg

Instead of using drugs, we work with children’s bodies to help strengthen their immune systems and heal. We are educated in the common ills of children and know how to use gentle chiropractic adjustments and nutrition to help regain homeostasis – that fine line between well-being and dis-ease.

The Chiropractors at Total Health Systems are a big advocate of preventative chiropractic care. You don’t wait until you child’s teeth are rotting before you take them in to the dentist, do you? So why should you wait until your child has a spinal curvature, earache, asthma, or allergies, before you take them in for a chiropractic check up? Prevention is the key!

Because the nervous system controls and coordinates every function in the body, regular chiropractic care starting at birth (or preferably in utero!) absolutely helps children to grow up healthier and happier! Even “normal” births can cause trauma to the spine, especially the neck and cranium of the newborn. When forceps, vacuum extraction, or cesarean section are used, the trauma increases.

So do not delay any further, get your newborn/infant/toddler scheduled for an adjusted today.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • ""I have had severe headaches and lower back pain for 13 years. I also kept getting colds that ended up in pneumonia and endometriosis for 5 years. Sometimes I needed to take days and weeks off work to recuperate and just stay in bed. At one time I even had to stop working for 4 years, and as a teacher this was very discouraging. I had seen many doctors and was taking Tylenol, Ibuprofen and sleeping tablets plus was told that I needed surgery.

    After I started Chiropractic care, I can honestly say that everything is almost 100%. I have so much more energy and any sign of lung or sinus congestion disappears with an adjustment. Even my gums don't bleed anymore! Everybody should go to the chiropractor to feel rejuvenated!""
