Pediatric Chiropractic in Huntersville

It has been estimated that kids fall over 2,000 times by the age of 2. After a while, their immature skeletal system is affected without you even realizing it. We have to take care of them during this time to ensure they stay healthy for a lifetime.

In our society, we have a “Walk it off” or Tough it out” philosophy. That can be horrible for our kids down the road. Just because symptoms are not easily seen doesn’t mean damage hasn’t occurred.

What is Pediatric Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is natural healthcare for children. Trauma can occur from the day your baby is born all through the growth process. This is especially true through structural changes during the crawling and walking stage. Children running and playing games often put stress on their bodies.

Pediatric chiropractic adjusts the alignment of your child’s spine and skeletal system to relieve pressure and stress on their nervous system.

We’re very gentle with kids; kids love getting adjusted because they have so much energy afterwards!

What to Expect

When you bring your child in to us, we want to see them in their natural state. Observing what they are going through allows us to treat the child more accurately. Moms have brought in babies, screaming and crying, who haven’t slept for days.

After a few minutes of chiropractic care, they’re amazed when the crying stops and the child falls into a deep sleep. Seeing the look of love and relief on the mother’s face is what makes what we do so fulfilling. There’s no greater feeling than this.

Older children can be more challenging because many equate a doctor’s visit with painful shots. All our doctors try to keep it real with the child; we’re focused on treating them. We let them know we’re here to help, not harm them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will chiropractic hurt my child?

Pediatric chiropractic is very gentle. Children actually enjoy adjustments because movement is easier afterwards.

Why should I have my newborn or young child adjusted?

Childbirth can be traumatic with a lot of stress on the newborn’s neck. It’s important to get them checked asap to correct any injury that may have occurred. Toddlers often fall as they learn to crawl and walk and can have unseen injuries that don’t manifest until years later.
