Pediatric Chiropractic at County Chiropractic Centre

As children experience so many rapid changes growing up, chiropractic care can help them achieve those developmental milestones and enjoy the best health possible.

We recommend parents bring their newborn in to check for any misalignments in their spine as soon as possible after birth. That’s because often interventions are used during the birth process, which can create subluxation or interference in a child’s nervous system. Gentle adjustments can address those.

Dr. Heather is a member of the ICPA and is certified in the Webster Technique. She’s also working toward certification in the PIPS technique, which addresses tongue ties and lip ties.

Common Childhood Conditions Chiropractic May Address

It’s important to understand that chiropractic doesn’t treat anything. However, here are some conditions that may resolve with chiropractic care:

  • Breastfeeding difficulties
  • Colic
  • Constipation
  • Ear infections
  • Lip and tongue ties

What to Expect

If you need to change or feed your baby before or after their appointment, we have a private area where you can do so.

To save time, we ask that you complete the intake before your child’s appointment. The form will have questions about things like how your pregnancy went, what the delivery was like (e.g. were any interventions needed) and if your child is hitting their milestones.

The doctor will get down to your child’s level and check their posture, range of motion and reflexes. We’ll often have kids “check” their mom’s reflexes or the doctor’s to help them feel engaged in the process.

Keeping Kids at Ease

We always ensure that kids feel comfortable during their visits. When it’s time to get adjusted, the doctor will do the checks with them either lying on Mom or on their tummy. If they’re older, they can sit on Mom’s lap while the chiropractor does the checks. Mom or Dad are encouraged to be part of the process to help their little one feel comfortable.

We also use the pregnancy pillows for infants or toddlers. We encourage moms to bring their own blanket. They can put the blanket on the pregnancy pillow, and because it smells like home, the baby feels comforted.

Making Visits Fun

In our upbeat and welcoming environment, kids enjoy their visits. Our CAs are excellent at taking care of the kids and playing with them. We often have kids’ music playing or can put songs they like from their favorite movies. Children can play with the toy Activators (what we call “clickers”) while getting adjusted. Kids also get to pick a sticker after their adjustment, a highlight of their time with us!
