Family Care

Chiropractic care for all ages and stages.

Your body is designed to heal and repair itself. When your nervous system is free of interference this can happen, and you can experience the best health possible. Chiropractic adjustments correct spinal joint restrictions, remove nervous system interference and allow your body to express health.

Consistency is the key to change. Chiropractic is not about putting a bone back in place. Adjustments are not a one-time thing. They are a consistent and very valuable part of a healthy lifestyle.

Chiropractic is about changing a dysfunctional neurological pattern, which has become a negative response your body has created that is affecting your health. The recommended frequency of care creates enough momentum to create and hold the new positive pattern.

Parents often ask what signs indicate that their children could benefit from chiropractic care. We can learn a lot about movement simply by watching. Asymmetry is an indicator of spinal stress and can easily be observed in our kids.

In infants:
  • Does their Left side move like their Right side?
  • Do they have restricted head or neck movement to one side?
  • If breastfeeding, do they have a breast preference?
  • Do you notice facial asymmetry or cranium asymmetry (flat spots)?
  • Any history of head shape issues, such as plagiocephaly or torticollis?
  • Was a vacuum or forceps used during the birth process?
  • Do they use their left arm like they use their right?
  • Does turning look the same on both sides?
  • Do they nibble on both feet?
  • Do they struggle in tummy time?
  • Do they sleep soundly?
  • Are there any issues with digestion and bowel movements?
In toddlers or older children parents can look for:
  • Bum scooting (bum scooting is not a developmental milestone or a variation of crawling)
  • Funky asymmetrical crawling (dragging a leg, using an elbow…)
  • Tippy toe walking
  • Postural asymmetries
  • Is one shoulder higher than the other?
  • Is one hip higher than the other?
  • Do they experience growing pains?
  • When standing and walking do their feet point ahead?
  • Do they W sit?

Observing movement gives us an inside look at neurology and how your child's nervous system is functioning. If you have any concerns or questions don't hesitate to ask us!

The Importance of Posture

Many families are working on living in proper alignment. Posture is much more than stacking your head on top of your shoulder. It is a reflection of your brain and how it is interpreting the information it is receiving. Through chiropractic adjustments we address spinal joint restrictions and positively influence the brain. This allows for proper posture to become easier and automatic.

Nobel Prize recipient Dr. Roger Sperry's work focused on how the spine is the motor that drives the brain. “90% of the stimulation and nutrition to the brain is generated by the movement of the spine.” Only 10% of our brain’s energy goes into thinking, metabolism, immunity and healing. Sperry demonstrated that 90% of brain energy goes into processing and maintaining the body’s relationship with gravity. Improve the spine and the body’s relationship with gravity improves with it.
