Preventing Common Childhood Problems

The spine is the gateway for communication between the brain and body. When your baby or child has proper spinal alignment, the brain and body can communicate at optimal levels. This allows for the greatest possible expression of health.

Misalignments, or subluxations in the spine, are caused by traumas, thoughts and toxins. Though it’s easy to see where adults experience the “Three Ts,” you might be wondering how a baby is exposed to these causes.


  • Birth injury (forceps, C-section, induction, vacuum extraction)

  • In utero constraint (breech positioning, posterior)

  • Physical injury (falls)

  • Physical stressors (extended back time, baby carriers)

Thoughts (a.k.a. stress) :

  • Birth (separation, NICU)

  • In utero (mother’s emotions, conception)

  • Parenting (circumcision, attachment, cry it out)


  • Birth (antibiotics, steroids, Vitamin K)

  • Chemical stressors (cleaners, bath products, vaccines)

  • Food (formula/mother’s milk, introduction of foods)

  • In utero (ultrasounds, hormones, pharmaceuticals)

Is Your Child Having Any of These Issues?

Some of the problems we’ve seen respond remarkably well to chiropractic care include:

  • Allergies

  • Colic

  • Difficulty breastfeeding

  • Ear, nose and throat conditions

  • Erb’s palsy

  • Foot inversion

  • Infections

  • Nervousness

  • Projectile vomiting

  • Sleep disorders

  • Torticollis

  • Unbalanced face and skull development

With the light force adjustments, we can restore balance and alignment to your child's system. The technique we use is known as KST (Koren Specific Technique) and is ideal for everyone, especially children and babies.
