Pediatric Chiropractic Care

Even the most typical of births can create stress and irritation to your child's nervous system. Shortly after birth is the perfect time to have Dr. Chelsea check your baby. We have children in our practice that have experienced the benefits of chiropractic care within hours of their birth, it is never too early to get started!
The nervous system is the master system of the body. When communication between nerve cells is distorted or impeded, this irritation can manifest in a variety of ways; Babies and children may experience: colic, irritability, poor sleep habits, difficulty breastfeeding, developmental delays, poor digestion, asthma, behavioural concerns, low energy, difficulty concentrating, ear infections, frequent colds and headaches. This list is certainly not exhaustive, but regardless of the symptoms all paths of regulating and healing in the body lead back to the nervous system. With every adjustment, Dr. Chelsea's goal is to ensure your child's nervous system has every opportunity to work efficiently and effectively.
Children are vulnerable to daily stresses just as adults are. These include:
1. Physical - poor posture, falls, sleeping positions, forward-facing infant carriers, Bumbo chairs, walkers, Jolly Jumpers, and extended time in car seats.
2. Chemical - nutrition, dehydration, exposure to chemicals and toxins.
3. Emotional - stress, anxiety and the emotional climate at home.
4. Electrical - constant exposure to wireless technology creating electromagnetic fields that can be disruptive at a cellular level.
Your child's chiropractic adjustment is different from that of an adult. Dr. Chelsea uses indicators and reflexes appropriate to the age, needs, and development of your child. We take the health of children very seriously, and are honoured to be trusted with their care.
