Pediatric Chiropractic Care at Hodag Chiropractic

Many people don’t realize that kids and even newborns can get chiropractic care. The fact is, chiropractic care is great for infants and kids! Even in a birth with no interventions, a baby’s tiny body can be subjected to tremendous pressure, twisting and pulling. As babies grow into toddlers, they fall and run into things and subject themselves to all manner of bumps and small traumas. Older kids have playground accidents or injuries from sports.

Regular chiropractic checkups and adjustments help remove the nervous system interference caused by these physical traumas. When the nervous system works optimally, these problems can heal before they turn into bigger problems down the road.

Our Fun Approach

We want children to have a great experience with us. We’ll take the time to play with them on the floor with some toys, or do an exam while playing Simon Says, or play silly music to help them relax. We’ll adjust them wherever they’re most comfortable, even in the waiting room.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does chiropractic help with ear infections?

If the first two vertebrae, C1 and C2, aren’t moving properly, they can put pressure on the Eustachian tubes, which may prevent the ears from draining. Adjusting those joints relieves the pressure, so the ears can drain and the infection can resolve.

How does chiropractic help with autism or sensory disorders?

Think of the neural pathways of the body as a garden hose. If somebody steps on the hose, water can’t flow. If neural pathways are blocked by interference, communication between the brain and body can’t flow, which can cause sensory overload. When the nerve channels are clear, the child can process sensory input more effectively.
