Often, chiropractic care is linked with aging, back problems, neck issues, accidents and sports injuries. What people don’t realize, is that infants, toddlers and children greatly benefit from chiropractic care as well! Pediatric chiropractic care is instrumental to your child’s well being. At every age, the spine and structural system protect billions of nerve fibers that send messages to every part of the body; correcting and maintaining them through chiropractic care can provide unmatched wellness for your child.

Children & Chiropractic Care

You may have heard of fetal positions in utero that cause problems in labor: breech, transverse, posterior, etc, but did you know that the growing spine also faces a challenge in the womb? Spinal segments can be pushed out of place or jammed by the position of the baby in the womb. Early chiropractic care can ensure optimal health and ease during the first months of your baby’s life!

Adamson Chiropractic Care for Kids

Adamson Chiropractic wants to help your child’s nervous system function optimally at this crucial time for growth, learning and development. Spinal alignments play a huge role in infant milestones such as lifting the head, rolling over, sitting, crawling, standing and walking. Adamson Chiropractic will do a thorough exam to find and correct any misalignments. When the nervous system is irritated by misalignments, any of the following issues may be present in your baby:

  • Colic

  • Reflux

  • Breast Feeding Difficulties

  • Constipation

  • Sleeping Difficulties

  • Allergies

  • Ear Infections

Irritability, growing pains and sleepless nights may be linked to subluxation of the spine. Tight spaces in the womb, speedy transitions through the birth canal, trips and falls during the early years or sports injuries during their youth, all of these are reasons to see a chiropractor. In older children, spinal misalignments may trigger any of the following issues as well:

  • Bedwetting

  • Allergies

  • ADD/ADHD

  • Behavioral Issues

  • Learning Disabilities

  • Autism

Chiropractic care is safe and effective at any age. Whether an adult, child or infant, Dr. Adamson always tailors her care for the individual. Dr. Adamson uses Active Release Technology to gently make adjustments to the spine and cranial bones to decrease nerve interference and get your child on track for an active life reaching all of the special milestones with ease!

The first step is an initial exam and an in depth consultation to hear your concerns, answer your questions and address your pediatric chiropractic needs. The warm environment and friendly staff at Adamson Chiropractic in Lacey Washington will put your mind at ease and help your child relax.
