Pediatric Chiropractic Care and Children’s Health for Boulder

At ADIO Health Chiropractic, we are a family-focused wellness practice and we feel that there is nothing more important than caring for our next generation.

Children are some of the biggest beneficiaries of chiropractic care. Are you surprised? Those who think of chiropractic care as primarily a solution for neck and back problems are surprised to learn that chiropractic can be helpful for many types of childhood health problems. Babies are born with all the potential in the world. It is our desire that every child have the advantage that his children have — a properly aligned spine with a fully functioning nervous system. Children are born to be well and we want to help you raise healthy kids!

When to Start

Chiropractics for Pediatrics

Dr. Mike wants to help your kids feel better and live better

Due to the unfortunate problems caused by increased interventions, poor infant health and higher mortality rates, Dr. Mike feels that it is extremely important to have your child checked for subluxation as soon as possible after birth. Subluxation is a misalignment or lack of motion within the spine that results in stress and ill health in the body. The birth process is a very common cause of subluxation, especially a birth process that resulted in many interventions. Chiropractors are the only ones trained to detect and remove these subluxations, and doing so will help to ensure that ill health does not follow for your newborn.

As children continue to grow their spines undergo many forms of trauma as they learn to walk and crawl, play, and become involved in sports. It has been said that a child undergoes enough falls in one day to put an adult in the hospital. Many of these things may again result in subluxations which can be easily detected and removed by a doctor of chiropractic.

Another essential part of our pregnancy/pediatric care is providing parents with all the information they need concerning health and wellness. From child nutrition, exercise, ADHD, diabetes prevention, stress reduction or anything else, Dr. Mike and his staff are committed to providing you with complete wellness education that gives you the answers you need!

If you feel your child may have any signs of subluxation, please contact us to find out what you can do about it. Posture is a very telling sign of the health of a child’s spine, if your child has poor posture please do not hesitate to call us. Remember, prevention is the best medicine and its better to start young so your child can grow and function at 100% and truly be well.

Kids Need Us

Babies are born with all the potential in the world, and children are born to be well. Chiropractic care after birth is one of the most important things you can do for your child. With interventions including c-section, forceps and vacuum extraction becoming more prevalent during pregnancy, this leads to added stress on the child’s spine and nervous system. It is our desire that every child get checked and adjusted, if necessary. Having a fully functioning nervous system will ensure a life full of health and vitality. We want to help you raise healthy kids, so we aren’t fixing sick adults.

Safe and Effective

We know you want what’s best for your child and may be concerned about the safety of chiropractic care for children. Dr. Mike will take the time to educate you on how the nervous system works and how a fully functioning nervous system free of interferences can help keep your child healthy.

The nervous system, consisting of the brain, spinal cord and all the nerves of the body, controls and regulates the entire body. Many childhood health problems are merely the result of nervous system interference, usually along the spine. Our gentle adjusting techniques help reduce these disturbances so your child’s body can resume working as it was designed. Better health is the natural result when the brain and body have clear communication pathways.

Adjustments are very specific to your child’s needs and are very gentle. Dr. Mike uses Torque Release Technique, which provides the most gentle chiropractic adjustments available.

Children will have the Insight Millenium Scan to ensure their care plan is customized to meet their needs. No X-rays are taken on children unless necessary. Dr. Mike has a passion for helping children and is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA).

Chiropractic Works

Upon examination, we often find nerve disturbances associated with many types of common childhood health complaints.

While the effects of these nervous system compromises go by a variety of names, chiropractic is not a treatment for them! Our primary aim is to locate and reduce the underlying nervous system dysfunction.

Infertility. Even before birth, restoring nervous system control of reproductive organs has blessed many chiropractic patients with the child they thought was impossible.

Traumatic Birth. Have your newborn checked shortly after birth to detect the effects of in-utero constraint, C-section, vacuum extraction or other aspects of a stressful birth.

Colic. Birth trauma, even from so-called “natural” birthing experiences can often produce a child’s first nerve compromise. Lacking the ability to communicate, your baby cries. And cries.

Ear infections. Biomechanical restrictions in the upper spine can compromise the nervous system and immune system, making your child’s ears a breeding ground for viral infection.

Bedwetting. Nervous system compromise in the lower back can block nerve messages responsible for bladder control. Many children regain their confidence and self-esteem with chiropractic care.

ADHD. Many parents investigate conservative chiropractic care before exposing their children to psychotropic drugs. Reducing tension to the nervous system has produced excellent results for many.

Asthma. By reducing neurological compromise to the bronchial tubes, lungs and diaphragm with chiropractic care, attacks can often be reduced or eliminated.

Growing Pains. Pain of any type is a warning that something isn’t right. While considered a “phase they’re going through,” it’s usually a sign that biomechanical stress to the nervous system is present.

Scoliosis. Instead of crude bracing or the all too common “wait and watch” approach, chiropractic care has helped countless children with this common disfigurement.

Wellness. An obvious symptom isn’t required! Enjoy the peace of mind of having your infant or child checked to uncover structural or neurological problems before they become serious.

Many of the hard-to-correct problems we see in adults are long-standing problems that began, and remained undetected in childhood. If you have questions, please contact us and arrange an in-office assessment or telephone consultation. We’re happy to discuss any concern without cost or obligation.

Put your child on the right path to wellness! Contact us today and schedule your child’s first visit. (720) 636-6064
