Pediatric Chiropractic in St Charles

child adjustmentChiropractic care isn’t just for adults! Babies and children have spines and nervous systems, too, and it’s just as important to ensure they’re free of interference. Our goal at RiverTowne Family Chiropractic is to give children the healthiest environment to grow up and live in by removing any nerve interference so they can move, walk, speak and do all the hard work of growing up without any interference between the brain and the rest of the body.

Adjusted from Birth, Healthy for Life

When a baby is in the womb, they can get into twisted positions that affect their spinal alignment. And then the birth process itself results in significant force being placed on the neck and spine. The result is that many kids are born with their neck leaning one way, their pelvis twisted and their body rotated.

When we check their spine early on and locate and correct these misalignments, we can free up their nervous system to do what it’s supposed to do—help them experience their world so they can develop optimally.

What to Expect

We’ll send you special paperwork for your child’s appropriate age group; we ask that you complete the forms prior to your visit.

Your chiropractor will talk with you about any health concerns, and then he’ll conduct a posture check. If there was no trauma, scoliosis or other serious condition, he will adjust the child at this first appointment. Adjustments for children are very gentle—about the same pressure you would use to test the ripeness of a tomato—and we make sure the kiddos are comfortable with the process before we begin.

At your child’s next appointment, your chiropractor will ask how they responded to their first adjustment. Based on their initial exam and how they responded to care, we’ll lay out our recommendations for their customized care going forward. As with all our care, your questions are welcomed!
