Supporting Your Child’s Growth with Pediatric Chiropractic

At Healing Hands Chiropractic, we understand the importance of your child’s health and well-being from the very beginning. That’s why we’re proud to offer pediatric chiropractic care with Dr. Megan Cloud, a certified ICPA chiropractor specializing in the care of infants and children.

What is Pediatric Chiropractic Care?

Pediatric chiropractic care is a gentle and effective approach to chiropractic care that is specifically tailored to the needs of growing bodies. Chiropractors who specialize in pediatrics use gentle techniques to improve spinal alignment and nerve function in infants, children, and adolescents.

How Can Pediatric Chiropractic Care Help My Child?

Pediatric chiropractic care can address a variety of concerns in newborns, infants, toddlers, and school-aged children, including:

  • Infants: Reflux, colic, gas pain, general fussiness.  Chiropractic care can help improve spinal alignment and potentially ease reflux symptoms, alleviate discomfort, and improve digestion.
  • Toddlers and Preschoolers: As toddlers begin to walk, a whole new dynamic of spinal function comes into play. Falls during this crucial learning stage can potentially cause subluxations, misalignments in the spine that can interfere with the nervous system. Regular chiropractic care can help ensure proper spinal and nervous system development.
  • School-Aged Children: Children in school face a variety of spinal stresses. Sitting for extended periods, carrying heavy backpacks, participating in sports, and spending hours hunched over electronic devices can all contribute to subluxations. Chiropractic care focuses on maintaining a healthy spine and nervous system, allowing your child to grow and develop optimally.

What to Expect During a Pediatric Chiropractic Visit

Pediatric chiropractic adjustments are very different from those performed on adults.  Children’s bodies are still growing and require specialized care. Dr. Cloud uses gentle techniques specifically designed for infants and children. These adjustments often involve light pressure and targeted touches to improve spinal alignment and nerve function.  Dr. Cloud’s ICPA certification ensures she has the training and knowledge to provide safe and gentle chiropractic adjustments specifically designed for your little one’s delicate spine. 

Pediatric Chiropractic: Beyond Addressing Challenges

While chiropractic care can address a variety of health concerns in children, it offers much more. Studies have shown that chiropractic not only helps children with a variety of health issues lead normal and healthy lives, but it can also help them achieve a higher level of performance and function, improved sleep, enhanced digestion and boosted immune system function.
