What is a Pediatric Chiropractor?
A pediatric chiropractor is a chiropractor who has specific training in treating infants, children, and adolescents. Just as with adults, our pediatric chiropractor aims to help with any of your child’s musculoskeletal concerns. They are trained to provide gentle, specific treatments suitable for your child’s size, age, and developmental stage.
Many parents come to our pediatric chiropractor for various reasons. During your child’s early stages, we can help with concerns such as neck tension or torticollis, assessing infant reflexes, and monitor developmental milestones. As your child gets older, pediatric chiropractic is often helpful for further growing pains and sports injuries or performance.
