Pediatric Chiropractic

Specific spinal adjustments performed by Dr. Chris Anderson are used to treat issues specifically related to children. The adjustments restore the body's natural functions by reducing nerve interference at the spinal level.

Chiropractic care is founded on the scientific fact that
"The nervous system controls and coordinates all organs and structures of the human body."
Grays Anatomy 29th Edition, Page 4

The Central Nervous System consists of the brain and spinal cord. Peripheral nerves branch off of the spinal cord (through vertebrae) and control the entire body. When vertebrae are misaligned, it causes the nerves that branch off to malfunction, resulting in pain, numbness, tingling and disease.

It may seem improbable that your child would need chiropractic care, until you consider all that your child's body goes through. Some of our pediatric patients have had physically traumatic births, some are involved in sports at school. There is no discounting all of the physical activity that children are involved in, the key is to keep their spine functioning properly, to avoid more serious injuries later in life.

Conditions that may be helped:

  • Back Pain (neck, mid back, and low back)
  • Growing Pains

Testimonials:

A woman brought her four (4) day old infant into the office. The child was jaundice and lethargic. The child refused to nurse and was unable to turn her head to the left. Her mother decided to have her child adjusted, and as they were leaving, the baby's skin tone had improved, she seemed more alert and the mother reported later that the baby was able to move her head again and began nursing that night.

An eight (8) year old girl was referred to our office by her gym teacher. She was having difficulties with her coordination and motor skills. After receiving only one chiropractic adjustment, her mother reported that her daughter had a complete turn around..

A patient brought her three (3) month old into the office. The infant had what is called a "Lazy Eye". Her mother explained that the birth of her daughter required forceps. Dr. Chris began treating the infant using the activator method for a spinal misalignment in the neck, and as a result, the "Lazy Eye" resolved.

An eight (8) year old patient was involved in an auto accident and had whiplash injuries. Her mother also said that she had been wetting the bed for years, every night. The patients treatment involved low back and pelvis adjusting and at the end of 3 months the girl was feeling pain free and no longer wetting the bed.
