Pediatric Chiropractic

Offering Gentle Care to Kids

Even if your child is seemingly healthy and gets a clean bill of health from medical doctors, your child may still have misalignments. We can identify misalignments that cause nerve interference and correct them, even though they may not be obvious in terms of symptoms or behaviors.

Dr. Karen uses gentle adjustments and will always work with the baby or child at their comfort level. She wants them to develop a trust and relationship with her, so they know that they will be safe and cared for while in her office.

Chiropractic care has allowed many of Dr. Karen’s young clients to return to their favorite activities.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I have my newborn or young child adjusted?

Birth can be a traumatic experience, no matter how it happens. The stresses of birth can impact how well the nervous system works. Because newborns can’t speak, we look at signals such as the ease of body functions, such as elimination or difficulties with feeding or sleeping.

How safe are adjustments on children?

Pediatric chiropractic is considered safe. Dr. Karen doesn’t adjust babies or kids exactly the same way she adjusts adults. It’s important to understand that only very light pressure is needed to adjust a baby, for example. The pressure applied is about the same as you’d use to check a tomato for ripeness.

How old were your kids when they received their first adjustment?

Dr. Karen’s children were an hour old when they got their first adjustment!

How often should my child be adjusted?

It depends on what we’re trying to help them with. Dr. Karen can provide a customized care plan for your child that includes a recommended number of visits.
