CHILDREN'S CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Success with Ear Infections, Allergies, Colic, Constipation, Sleep, Growing Pains, Sports Injuries and more...

In late 2003, as a result of much research and clinical experimentation, Dr. Tedd Koren developed an improved, gentle but yet very powerful form of chiropractic spinal care that he now calls Koren Specific Technique (KST). This unique breakthrough approach allows patients to be analyzed better than ever before, with the adjustments holding stronger and for longer periods of time.

 

Chiropractic care is safe for the infant, toddler and children and helps to ensure that a child’s nervous system and immune system are optimally developing. Gentle adjustments during these early life stages have been shown to reduce or eliminate symptoms of colic, reflux, earaches, latching problems and behavior concerns. 

A Gentle Touch for Comfort

Dr. Jenn uses KST in her practice every day after experiencing first hand results from the technique and then studying it to use on her patients. By using the ArthroStim® instrument, gentle and specific adjustments are preformed to restore your body’s proper alignment.

Your Child’s Nervous System

 

The nervous system, which consists of your brain, spinal cord and nerves, controls everything in the body, including growth and development. Subluxations, also known as misalignments, in the spine can prevent proper communication from the brain to the body. These subluxations cause stress to the nervous system, which can lead to a decrease in function of the affected area.

Infants, children and adults can all experience subluxations in the spine. Infants and children can become subluxated from birth trauma, other minor or major traumas and developmental stress. During the first five years of life, the body produces more neural pathways than at any other time. It is vital this production is optimized through children’s chiropractic care, as the first few years are crucial to each child’s potential.

Even if your child is in excellent health, minor traumas from bumps, bruises, falls and spills accumulate over time and can result in pain, discomfort and/or health issues in their teen and adult years.
