What Can Chiropractic Do for Your Child?

Child playing doctor with teddy bearWhy do millions of parents bring their children to Doctors of Chiropractic every year? Is it only for highly dramatic health conditions? Is it only for when my child is hurting? Not at all!!

Chiropractic's purpose is to remove interferences to the natural healing power running through the body. When that power is unleashed the healing that results may be profound.


Kids and Chiropractic 

Pediatric chiropractic care, is completely different for children than it may be for adults. Adjusting a child is performed by simply moving the child into a position of ease, holding that position and letting things reset quite nicely on their own.


Chiropractors Do Not Treat Disease

pediatric chiropracticIt's most important to understand that chiropractic is not a treatment for disease. It's purpose is to remove spinal nerve stress, a serious and often painless condition most children (and adults) have in their bodies. Spinal nerve stress interferes with the proper functioning of the nervous system. 

When a chiropractor frees the nervous system from spinal stress, the healing power of the body is unleashed. 

So, although children with diseases are often brought to the chiropractor, the chiropractor is not treating their diseases but permitting their body's natural healing potential to function at its best.


Webster Technique

pediatric cranio sacral therapyThe Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and diversified adjustment. This is a gentle technique used on expecting mothers to help increase the mother’s pelvic mobility and remove stressors from the body that may affect the baby’s development and or delivery.

The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation and sacroiliac joint dysfunction. In doing so, neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is facilitated. In this balanced state, the baby can do what it’s designed to do, find the best possible position for itself for birth.
