Pediatric Chiropractor Portland

Here at our Lake Oswego Chiropractic office we see a large amount of families and children of all ages. As a matter of fact, kids are easier to adjust, improve more rapidly and overall get amazing results from chiropractic care. Simply put, it’s easier to keep a child healthy than it is to fix a sick adult. That being said, when do you think the best time to start practicing spinal hygiene? The very best time is at birth and the second best time is always going to be NOW!  Chiropractors have been performing adjustments on children and infants for more than one hundred years!

When babies are born and come into this world, their little bodies will be subjected to all kinds of stress. Beginning at birth, our tiny babies can be susceptible to bones shifting out of their proper space (spinal misalignments), due to a slow birth, a c-section or even the babies positions in uterus. The quick pediatric check-up is not structured to detect possible “hidden damage” that a child’s chiropractic exam can discover. Early detection is the key to keeping your child healthy and preventing potential pain or discomfort in their future. As a child grows, bumps and bruises can happen along the way. Falls and injuries during sporting activities, even poor posture and as they get older, cell phones and heavy backpacks can all affect how the body properly develops if there are bones misaligned in the spine.

Naturally Ensure That Your Child is Happy, Healthy & Strong with Chiropractic Care in Portland

The first thing our spinal care team at our South Portland Chiropractic office in Lake Oswego will do is to conduct a full history of your child’s past and present health, along with any symptoms or complaints they are having now such as Headaches, Neck Pain, Digestion Issues, Sleeping Problems, Bed Wetting, ADHD, Ear Infections, Colic or always or hardly ever wanting to eat.  This is followed by a thorough physical examination of the child’s posture, spine and motion testing abilities.

Our Lake Oswego Chiropractors will perform gentle spinal adjustments for infants & young children that will involve a safe, very light fingertip type of pressure to correct spinal misalignments with ease. This will gently restore your child’s mobility to individual spinal joints. A child’s spine usually responds much faster compared to chiropractic care than an adult’s spine. The actual number of adjustments your child will need will vary depending on factors, such as the age of the child, length of time the problem has been present and the symptoms themselves. Parents can feel confident in their child’s safety here in our Chiropractic office because not only are we experienced in treating patients of all ages but because Chiropractic Care is non-invasive and medication-free.
