The birth process is stressful, setting the stage for future issues if not addressed. With such rapid development happening, there is no better time to ensure your infant’s spine and nervous system are functioning in the best possible way.


Overstimulation from the environment, the introduction of new foods, and the development of new motor patterns can all affect the physical development of your toddler. Toddlers under regular chiropractic care may get sick less often, take less antibiotics & drugs, and can be less susceptible to ear infections.

School Children:

School aged children are faced with new physical stressors of sitting at school, new sports/activities being introduced, and the use of computers and hand held devices. In addition, they may start to feel stress from school, which can have an affect on the nervous system.


One of the biomechanical issues with teenagers today is the postural changes that can occur from prolonged computer, cell phone, and video game use. The nervous system, consisting of the brain, spinal cord, and the nerves control and regulate the entire body. Many teenage health problems are merely the result of a nervous system interference, usually along the spine. Our gentle adjusting techniques help reduce nerve disturbance so your teen’s body can resume working as it was designed.
