Pediatric Chiropractic

Trauma Can Occur at Any Age

The birthing process is stressful and can cause traumas. Infants should be checked as soon as possible after birth for subluxations. We want to ensure there’s no spinal nerve stress that could cause future issues.

As your child goes through the different stages of life, little traumas can go unnoticed. Toddlers are prone to falls as they learn how to walk, run and climb. They might hit their head and seemingly be alright, but a little issue, if not corrected early, can affect their growth and development.

For example, a fall can cause interference into the cervical spine, causing ear infections. Children with chronic infections may end up having drains surgically implanted. Chiropractic adjustment allows drainage to occur easily and naturally to eliminate the problem.

Benefits You Can See

Working with children is very rewarding. Children are naturally more resilient, so results are observed quickly. Your child’s body has an innate knowledge of what they need; we help them work through that process. Once your child’s condition improves, so do the lives of everyone impacted.

Pediatric chiropractic is very gentle. Dr. Shire is ICPA certified to provide the highest quality care for his young patients. There’s never any twisting, cracking or popping involved. Children actually enjoy adjustments because movement is easier afterward.
