Chiropractic care is safe and effective for people of all ages! This includes infants, toddlers, big kids, and pregnant moms. Chiropractic has helped children suffering from problems like bed-wetting, constipation, colic, headaches, and chronic ear infections just to name a few. Its also a great idea to incorporate chiropractic care into your child’s wellness routine. See our wellness care page for more information on reasons why. One good reason is that chiropractors are fully trained in the detection of potentially debilitating problems like scoliosis. Catching things like scoliosis early is crucial to successful management.
Is it safe for children?
Chiropractic is extremely safe for children and adults. See our chiropractic safety page for more details. Children heal faster than adults, and typically respond much quicker to chiropractic care than adults. So what may take your body weeks to get over, children may respond in days.
Is it safe during pregnancy?
Yes! Many moms report to us that they considered chiropractic an essential part of their pregnancy. The techniques we use are sometimes modified during pregnancy, but chiropractic is very safe and effective for pregnant moms.
Here are actual patient cases of children in our clinic:
1 year old boy
Symptoms: Indigestion, continual vomitting after meals, frequent waking up in the night. Pediatrician prescribed Prilosec, but the mother brought him here instead.

3 year old boy
Symptoms: Severe chronic constipation lasting for several months. Unresponsive to traditional medical treatment including suppositories.
Results: Within 3 chiropractic visits the patient no longer experienced any constipation. A 4 week follow-up visit revealed a continued lack of any constipation.
