Toddler & Preschooler Chiropractic Care

As children grow and begin exploring their surroundings, crawling leads to walking. Walking leads to running. Tricycles lead to bicycles and before you know it, they are constantly on the move!

On this journey, they may lose their balance; they might fall, slip or trip. Even though your child’s young body has a tremendous capacity to adapt, uncorrected subluxations can just be the beginning of problems often seen later as adults.

Chiropractic wellness visits during this time of growth are essential, just as regular visits to your dentist are for your children’s teeth, so too are chiropractic visits for their spine and nervous systems. We’ve had parents who have been to our office tell us that their children often miss less school and seem healthier than other children.

Spinal subluxations can also hamper your child’s ability to ward off infection. Weakened by a compromised nervous system, his or her stomach, lungs, nose, ears, and throat can open the gates to viruses. Restoring the nervous system is what chiropractic care is all about.

Indicators that your Child Should be Treated:

  • Head being tilted to one side
  • Falling out of bed
  • Sports injuries
  • Headaches
  • Sore joints
  • Ear Infections
  • Frequent colds/viruses
  • Was in a vehicle at the time of an accident
  • Scoliosis
