Children’s Health

Children often respond quickly to chiropractic care and seem to prefer our natural approach.

Children are some of the biggest beneficiaries of chiropractic care. Surprised? Those who think of chiropractic as primarily a solution for neck and back problems are surprised to learn that chiropractic can be helpful for many types of childhood health problems.

Nervous System Disturbances

The nervous system, consisting of the brain, spinal cord and all the nerves of the body, controls and regulates the entire body. Many childhood health problems are merely the result of nervous system interference, usually along the spine.

Our gentle adjusting techniques help reduce these disturbances so your child’s body can resume working as it was designed. Better health is the natural result when the brain and body have clear communication pathways.

Chiropractic care has been shown to improve fertility.

Chiropractic and Children

Upon examination, we often find nerve disturbances associated with many types of common childhood health complaints.

While the effects of these nervous system compromises go by a variety of names, chiropractic is not a treatment for them! Our primary aim is to locate and reduce the underlying nervous system dysfunction.

Infertility. Even before birth, restoring nervous system control of reproductive organs has blessed many chiropractic patients with the child they thought was impossible.

Traumatic Birth. Have your newborn checked shortly after birth to detect the effects of in-utero constraint, C-section, vacuum extraction or other aspects of a stressful birth.

Colic. Birth trauma, even from so-called “natural” birthing experiences can often produce a child’s first nerve compromise. Lacking the ability to communicate, your baby cries. And cries.

Ear infections. Biomechanical restrictions in the upper spine can compromise the nervous system and immune system, making your child’s ears a breeding ground for viral infection.

Bedwetting. Nervous system compromise in the lower back can block nerve messages responsible for bladder control. Many children regain their confidence and self-esteem with chiropractic care.

Reducing nervous system tension can improve virtually every aspect of your child’s performance.

ADHD. Many parents investigate conservative chiropractic care before exposing their children to psychotropic drugs. Reducing tension to the nervous system has produced excellent results for many.

Asthma. By reducing neurological compromise to the bronchial tubes, lungs and diaphragm with chiropractic care, attacks can often be reduced or eliminated.

Growing Pains. Pain of any type is a warning that something isn’t right. While considered a “phase they’re going through,” it’s usually a sign that biomechanical stress to the nervous system is present.

Scoliosis. Instead of crude bracing or the all too common “wait and watch” approach, chiropractic care has helped countless children with this common disfigurement.

Wellness. An obvious symptom isn’t required! Enjoy the peace of mind of having your infant or child checked to uncover structural or neurological problems before they become serious.

Many of the hard-to-correct problems we see in adults are long-standing problems that began, and remained undetected in childhood. If you have questions, use the email link below. Or give us a call and arrange a telephone consultation. We’re happy to discuss any concern.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "We have been seeing Dr. Stein for a year and we went from our four-year old having multiple ear infections and on the road to ear tube surgery to only having one ear infection this entire past year!! We have also noticed stronger immune systems!! I am excited to see how adjustments will benefit my other three children (10, 8, and 2) who just began their treatment plans, as my oldest already feels like he can focus better in school. Also, the whole staff at Straightahead is very fun and loving!!"

  • "Dr Stein and his staff are nothing short of amazing. My kids are so comfortable there, they actually hate when it’s time to leave, and ask when they get to go back. Most importantly, their health is improving, and the issues that led me to Dr Stein in the first place are already improving. Straightahead was an answer to prayer for us, and I’m so grateful to everyone there for how much they love and care about my family."

  • "I can not say enough about how Dr. Stein and his amazing staff has changed our families lives. He has helped my husband, myself, and our son with different issues and has helped us tremendously. Most recently he is helping my sister, and I’m thrilled for her to be in his care."
