Pediatric Chiropractic at West Chiropractic Clinic

You may wonder why a child would need chiropractic care. Research shows that chiropractic care during childhood can help your child grow and develop to their best potential physically, academically, and socially. Plus, pediatric chiropractic is safe, gentle, and specific.

At West Chiropractic Clinic, we see children of all ages, from day-old-newborns to toddlers up to teens. Chiropractic can help with brain development and critical motor skills; it can help keep the immune system healthy and much more. We love helping children enjoy maximum health!

The Power of Preventative Care

Receiving chiropractic care throughout life, starting in childhood, may help your body function optimally. So for children, this form of natural care can allow them to be as close to their 100 percent potential as possible.

Providing Safe and Gentle Adjustments

We understand that parents who’ve never taken their child to see the chiropractor before may wonder how their youngster will be adjusted. There’s a big difference in how we adjust babies and children compared to adults.

As children’s spines are easy to adjust, only slight pressure on an area is used—about the amount applied to check a tomato for ripeness.

Helping Nervous Kids Feel at Ease

It is our first priority to ensure that your child feels safe and comfortable in our office. We will always explain to the parent/guardian the plan of care and the best technique we feel is needed to treat your child.

Most children find comfort sitting on their parent’s lap or playing with their toys while we adjust them. Our younger patients (infants) usually sleep right through their adjustment! If your child has special needs, we will make every effort to accommodate them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do children need chiropractic care as often as adults?

In many cases, kids can heal and adapt much faster than adults. Most of the time, kids require less frequent care.

Why should I have my infant adjusted soon after they’re born?

Even natural childbirth can lead to spinal damage that is more easily corrected if identified early. Chiropractic may gently remove any subluxation that may be present in your child’s nervous system, allowing your baby to experience healthy growth and development.

Do you have any special certifications or training in pediatric care?

Dr. Bilbo has completed over 150 hours in advanced training with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) to further her knowledge of working with our pediatric patients.

Can chiropractic help my child’s posture?

Given the significant amount of time kids spend on their digital devices, such as texting or watching videos or shows on their tablet, postural problems can develop. Our natural care can help restore critical movement to their spines.
