Chiropractic for ChildrenChildren need Chiropractic too!

Dr. Goodwin encourages chiropractic care for children. Many people ask whether it is appropriate for children to receive chiropractic care. Not only is it appropriate, it is necessary for the proper development of a child's spine.

Chiropractic adjusting techniques are modified to fit a child’s size, weight, and unique spinal problem. Parents often report that their children seem healthier than other kids their age.

Given the tremendous amounts of falls and mishaps children experience as they grow, there is a great probability of minor injuries occurring. We call them minor injuries, because in most cases, children get the type of injuries that are not causing them significant pain at the time of injury. However, these minor injuries, if left untreated can accumulate over the years until such time that a more significant health issue is evident.


Health is not just the absence of pain... but a state of wellness

Gentle chiropractic adjustments of a child's spine will aid in keeping the spine mobile and in its best possible functional position. This, along with the proper additional support from the child's pediatrician allows for a team approach to healthcare. This is an approach that works well for the child because various different health philosophies and treatment are used for the child's best health interest.

Why do children need Chiropractic Care?

Since significant spinal trauma can occur at birth, many parents have their newborns checked for Vertebral subluxation complex. Later learning to walk, ride a bicycle, and other childhood activities can cause spinal problems. While a bandage and comforting words can help a skinned knee, the unseen damage to the child's spine is the unique domain of a chiropractic doctor.

Many childhood health complaints that are brushed off as "growing pains" can often be traced to the spine. Regular chiropractic checkups can help avoid many of the health complaints seen later in adults.

Child chiropractic care can help with:

Ear infections/Tonsillitis
Allergies
Asthma
Scoliosis
Infantile Colic
Bed wetting
Attention Deficit Disorder

And much more!
