Pediatric Chiropractic at Structure Integrative Healthcare

You may be wondering why children need chiropractic care. They usually don’t have back pain, right? It’s important to note that even without interventions, birth can be traumatic to a child. That’s why we recommend you bring your newborn in as soon after birth for an adjustment. The chiropractic adjustment removes nerve interference so the body can perform at its highest, most optimal functional capacity.

Providing Gentle Adjustments

Before we adjust your infant, we use a scanning system so we can see specifically how their nervous system and body’s functioning. This system does not use any radiation.

When it comes time to adjust your infant, toddler or older child, rest assured that our adjustments are much gentler than what is done to an adult. We use the Activator® instrument and manual adjustments to provide safe, gentle and specific adjustments.

Chiropractic is critical for children as it gets them off to a healthy start in life.

Parents of our young patients observe that chiropractic can do the following:

  • Improvements in attitude and mode
  • Improve mental focus
  • Boost the immune system
  • Correct and optimize posture
  • Detect and correct scoliosis

  • Decrease the frequency and severity of illness
  • Improve sleep
  • Improve digestive and bowel issues
  • Enhance sports performance

Here are some of the many typical childhood conditions that chiropractic can address:

  • Bedwetting
  • Breastfeeding difficulties
  • Colic

  • Constipation
  • Ear infections
  • Gas

  • Torticollis
  • Unexplained crying
  • Sleep

One of our patients, a young girl, was difficult. She knew how to push her mom’s buttons and had a hard time transitioning into school when she had to go to kindergarten. The girl’s mother would get many calls from teachers saying the girl was disrupting class and wasn’t paying attention. The child fidgeted a lot and couldn’t sit still in class.

The mom started bringing her daughter in for care. Dr. Cortney began noticing that the girl was improving. She would get on the adjusting table without any fidgeting. The mom also noticed that she wasn’t getting as many emails from the school regarding her daughter.

The child and then the mom also noticed that home life was easier because the girl’s behavior wasn’t as disruptive and erratic. She now has more emotional stability and no longer tries to get a reaction for attention.

We love seeing children in our practice and do everything possible to ensure they feel entirely at ease. A variety of toys is available and we have iPads available to entertain them. Kids love coming to our fun and upbeat chiropractic office!

Overscheduled Equals Overstressed

Families and kids are more stressed today like never before.  With the overuse of cell phones, ipads, and technology in general coupled with extra curricular activities, sports and everything else we do, life is too stressful and chaotic.  An overloaded schedule is stressful to an adult, but can you imagine what it must feel like to a child?  A child who is to young to understand physical stress let alone emotionally stress?  Our children often get sick, lash out at school or at home and perform poorly in classes as a result and can disrupt family relationships and family life.

Chiropractic care can help balance their nervous system. As a result, they can live a healthier, less stressed-out life. Help your child get off to the healthiest start in life. Contact us today to schedule an appointment for pediatric chiropractic Naperville!
