Is chiropractic care for children safe?

A number of childhood ailments, regardless of symptoms, can be traced back to the nervous system. Chiropractors for children focus on overall health by promoting a healthy spine and effective nervous system. Chiropractic treatment is drug-free, non-invasive, and safe for children.

Childhood ailments and benefits
of chiropractic care

Just as they do for adults, chiropractors for children focus on the relationship between the spine and the nervous system. Dysfunction in the spine and its joints can lead to dysfunction in the nervous system and have wide-ranging effects on our health. Chiropractors evaluate and adjust spinal dysfunction to encourage better health and wellness.

All chiropractic care is tailored to the individual. For children, this means using gentler forms of adjustments and spinal manipulation. Your child's first visit with us will include a full health history and examination, and then we develop a chiropractic treatment plan specifically for your child.

Growing pains 1 square 900

Growing Pains

Growing pains are non-dangerous, recurrent leg pain common in children ages 2-12. If your child reports pain in the front of the thighs, in the calves, or behind the knees, they may be experiencing growing pains.

Some children experience growing pains infrequently while others may experience it often. Chiropractic treatment for growing pains is an alternative medicine that offers pain relief without dependency on over-the-counter medicine.

Ear Infections

Ear infections are the most common reason parents bring their children to a doctor. Some children may experience these infections more than others and be advised to receive ear tubes. This surgery usually requires anesthesia, and children may still experience infections after the procedure.

Chiropractic treatment for ear infections is a non-invasive, non-addicting method of care. Chiropractic adjustments correct misalignments that lead to poor drainage and infections. Restoring your child's balance and ear drainage can lead to fewer infections.

Before taking drastic measures with surgery, consider visiting a chiropractor to explore additional treatment options for your child.

If your child has uneven shoulders or hips, they may be experiencing a spinal curvature called scoliosis. If left untreated, this could result in lifelong issues after the spine has stopped growing and settled in a deformed structure.

Chiropractic adjustments decrease pressure on the nervous system and strengthen your body's core. Chiropractors for children can instruct them in strengthening exercises to support joints and stretches that can minimize or relieve pain.

A doctor of chiropractic can work with your family doctor to treat scoliosis by providing observation of spinal curve progression and pain management.

Colic 2 square 900 copy 2


All babies cry, but some crying can be particularly hard for parents to cope with. Colic refers to frequent, prolonged, and intense crying and fussiness in infants with no noticeable health issues or causes for distress.

Studies have shown that colicky infants benefit from chiropractic adjustments and cry less (Source).
Asthma 2 square 900 copy 3


Chiropractors do not treat asthma, but they help children with asthma by focusing on the spine and its relation to their condition. This can lead to adjustments of the thoracic spine, which supplies the lungs and bronchial tubes. If our thoracic spine is misaligned, we may not have full range of motion and limited expansion of our lungs.

Reduced airflow and asthma attacks are debilitating to children because it can affect sleeping, decrease activity levels, and cause problems concentrating. Chiropractors for children can offer a more conservative approach to treat your child's asthma.


More and more parents are seeking complementary and alternative medicine for their children with ADHD. Chiropractic care is non-invasive, drug-free, and safe for children. It can be integrated with your pediatrician's treatment plan or sought as an alternative to stimulant medications.

The best treatment options for your child's ADHD will depend on their symptoms and unique situation. Most successful approaches usually involve multiple tools – including chiropractic care.


The reflex to wake us in the night to go to the bathroom may be hindered by an unhealthy spine. Chiropractors for children facilitate a healthy nervous system and improved reflexes to achieve better overall health.

Seeking a chiropractic evaluation for your child's bedwetting is an inexpensive, drug-free solution that can save you the hassle and your child the embarrassment from the habit.

How do children get nerve irritation?

You may associate a chiropractor with just back and neck pain resulting from accidents or stress. If that were true, it may not seem logical for a child to need a chiropractor. In reality, chiropractic care is much more about spinal and joint health optimizing our nervous systems.

Nerve irritations occur as part of our daily life – bad posture, falls, stress, anxiety, etc. Even before lifestyle stressors can affect a child, nerve irritation can occur from awkward in utero positioning or a difficult birth.

An efficient and effective nervous system is an essential component of overall health – for adults and for kids, too.
