Pediatric Chiropractic at
Featherstone Family Chiropractic & Wellness

Chiropractic is natural health care for children. Trauma may occur from the day your baby is born, all through the growth process. This is especially true with all the 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; they love getting adjusted because they have so much energy afterward!

Easy, Gentle Adjustments

Your infant’s bones are still developing, making it easier to adjust them, with much less force. Dr. Jess uses a very low pressure, like what you would use to touch your eyelid, in the affected area to guide the segment into the proper position and work to ease any overall body tension.

Dr. Jess checks the tension within the spinal cord from the occiput and cranium down to the sacrum. It’s the same concept of bringing ease to the system, but the analysis and care will look a little different.

How We Help

Some issues we have helped children with include

  • Pain
  • Ear Infections
  • Colic
  • Sleep issues
  • Headaches
  • Postural problems
  • Anxiety
  • Torticollis
  • Asthma/allergies
  • Sensory issues

Overweight backpacks cause postural issues for many children. Slouching is also common with the amount of sitting that kids do at school and sometimes at home.

Success Story

Dr. Jess had a young girl come in with sensory issues. Anything with texture was a problem for her, provoking full-on temper tantrums on a daily basis. She didn’t want to wear socks, shoes, leggings, or anything tight on her legs. Hats and gloves were also a no-go.

After some adjustments and primitive reflex therapy, by the fourth visit, the girl was able to put on her own socks and shoes. Though this was a marked difference, it took some time before she could handle some things she couldn’t before. Her parents really appreciated not having to go through the daily struggle, and the girl was also glad to be rid of these frustrations.
