Pediatric Chiropractic Care in West Hartford

Helping Children Develop Optimally

Pediatric chiropractic is a gentle chiropractic adjustment designed specifically for the unique needs of children, babies and newborns. As the nervous system controls all function in the body, it’s important for kids as young as a day old to get off to a great start in life. Gentle adjustments optimize that function.

Research shows that 80% of all uncomplicated vaginal births include some damage to the upper neck of the baby. 60 to 90 pounds of pressure is placed on the neck of the infant as it exits the womb. This is usually where the first spinal misalignment occurs. This is where a simple fingertip adjustment to the neck of the newborn, if necessary, is vital. No more than an ounce of gentle pressure is used.

We can tell you with confidence that children that are under chiropractic care have optimally-functioning nervous systems. Our care is safe, gentle and effective. We’ve seen babies and kids respond well to conditions such as

  • ADD
  • Allergies
  • Back Pain
  • Bedwetting
  • Colic

  • Constipation
  • Ear infections
  • Headaches
  • Irritability
  • Latching Problems

  • Neck Pain
  • Reflux
  • Scoliosis
  • Sleep Difficulties
  • Torticollis

The benefits of pediatric chiropractic are clear: a child with a free flowing nervous system.

As children grow up, they’re prone to many falls and injuries. Through chiropractic adjustment, the spine is kept in proper alignment. Nerve irritation is kept to a minimum. You’re rewarded with a child that blossoms and functions as nature intended.

Years ago, we took care of a two-year-old little girl. She had suffered from 11 ear infections since the age of one. Each attack was accompanied by antibiotics. Her doctor wanted to perform surgery to insert tubes in her ears. Her parents, however, decided to give chiropractic a try. Within six visits, the infections ceased. She’s never had an ear infection since. She’s now in college.

A ten-year old boy was brought in by his foster mother for bedwetting problems. The little fellow was disheartened and humiliated by the problem. He felt sad that he was never able to have a sleepover with school friends. After approximately nine adjustments, his mom came in one day with tears in her eyes. She told us that her son no longer was wetting the bed; he’d even had some friends spend the night!
