Getting Started With Chiropractic
Just like adults, our pediatric patients are put through an initial assessment. We do non-invasive scans to look at what is really going on with their health. Adults can communicate when something in their body does not feel right, kids on the other hand struggle to communicate any aches and pains they may feel. A common question we receive is “Do adjustments hurt children?”, the answer is no. Adjustments to growing spines are done with a gentle touch or gentle usage of an instrument called the Integrator.
