Babies & Children
Chiropractic checkups and adjustments now can make the world of a difference in a child’s life and long-term health. This is because chiropractic care promotes a properly functioning central nervous system and immune system. In infants, frequent chiropractic visits often result in easier breastfeeding, better sleep, and improved bowel movements. Immediate results in children often include a decrease in allergies, a reduction in sleeping disorders, and less hyperactivity. Chiropractic care is also known to improve a child’s behavior and emotional health.
Our chiropractors are trained to carefully check a child’s spine for areas causing nerve damage. If any indication of trauma or damage is present, a gentle adjustment is administered with the same pressure you would use to test the ripeness of a tomato. As a parent, it is important to keep in mind that adjusting techniques are modified for each child’s individual size and unique spinal issues.
“My 5 year old had a problem having bowel movements, which seems totally unrelated to adjustments, but the adjustments somehow helped. She hasn’t had problems since. I’ve even seen Dr. Charlene adjust my two month old nephew, who melted like butter in her loving hands.” – Liane J.
“Dr. Calio is amazing. He has taken care of my wife and two children for close to a year. From helping my 6 year old get rid of her daily migraines… to managing my 8 year old son’s scoliosis… to taking care of my wife pre-pregnancy, during pregnancy and after pregnancy he is amazing. Dr. Calio’s upper cervical technique is so gentle.” -Nathaniel R.
