Taking care of the next generation is Total Family Chiropractic’s mission. What better way to impact our future generation than by working with infants and children. Dr. Ashley has special training in pediatrics.
When many people think of chiropractic, they think of low back, neck, and headache relief. Chiropractic is great for adults suffering from those types of symptoms, however, in our office infants & children have benefited tremendously from chiropractic care.
After a thorough consultation and examination, Dr. Ashley safely and gently uses chiropractic adjustments to optimize function. Common infant and childhood illness seen in our office include: trauma related to birth, ear infections, colic, ADD/ADHD, autism, allergies & asthma, latching difficulties, acid reflux, bedwetting, constipation, and malformations of the cranium.
Chiropractic & Children
Chiropractic adjustments do not treat any of these illnesses or symptoms. Chiropractic care helps to reduce nerve disturbance and restore normal function. The nerves that regulate, control, and supply the body start at the brainstem, travel down the spinal cord, and exit out between two vertebrae. Misalignments of the bones of the spine may compromise the function of the nerve signals to and from the child’s body. This compromise can prevent the child’s body from functioning properly. Many times when the body is unable to adapt to stress, symptoms and illnesses occur. The adjustments help to restore proper function within the body. This allows the body to appropriately adapt to stress thus functioning more optimally.
