Having your child's spine checked for problems is important - perhaps more so than having your children's teeth checked for cavities. While we do not wish to irresponsibly or unprofessionally scare parents into bringing their children in for spinal checkups, we do feel it is our responsibility to inform parents about the importance and value of appropriate spinal care. If you are interested in scheduling an appointment for your child or perhaps have questions, we welcome you to call and schedule a consultation or request to speak directly to the doctor - we believe your child's health is worth it.
Thousands of infants, children and adolescents benefit from the fruits of regular chiropractic care every day. Chiropractic has become much more than an effective treatment for adult back pain.

Common childhood conditions such as ear infections, asthma and infantile colic - to name a few - have been shown to respond favorably to chiropractic treatments.
