Pediatric Chiropractic Care in Orem

Interference in the nervous system causes stress and decreased function, and can be devastating to children and adults alike. Chiropractic care is the science of removing interference from your nervous system, allowing your health to flourish.

Finding Natural Ways to Let the Body HealIMG_1321

It’s a very exciting time to be a kid! We are fortunate to be able to work with a lot of babies and kids in our office. Not only do we care for kids with headaches, colic, slow bowels and stiff necks, many of the kids that we meet have concerned parents over either neurodevelopmental or neurobehavioral issues. While chiropractors do not treat mental disorders (we are not psychiatrists), the beauty of the human body is that it is designed to start healing if and when the interference and stress can be removed.

The unfortunate truth is that babies and children get injured. One study showed that 91% of babies have injured necks just from the birth process!  When a baby is born with a neck or other spinal injury, it can profoundly affect the way the body and brain communicate, and those injuries will cause the baby’s brain to act stressed out, and even more importantly, make permanently stressed out connections! One easy way to calm the brain and nervous system is to adjust the spine and restore its normal function. Adjusting the spine stimulates the brain to make new connections, and has a calming effect on the whole nervous system, helping to restore homeostasis.

With adjustments, you might see that your child isn’t as stressed, that their immune system and other bodily systems work better, feeling less anxious or low, and energy levels begin to normalize. Some of the children we work with are experiencing:

  • High energy levels
  • Poor attention
  • Anxious behaviors & symptoms
  • Asthma symptoms
  • Bed wetting
  • Colic or stomach pain
  • Ear infections
  • Growing pains
  • Scoliosis
  • Hypersensitivity to clothes, lights, or sounds

Fitting Techniques to Children’s Needs

While many chiropractors aren’t comfortable adjusting kids, or don’t know the importance of getting every child checked, we absolutely love the kids who come into our office. Dr. Erickson is a current member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), he has completed the prestigious Epic Pediatrics training program (an extensive pediatric neurodevelopmental case management training program), and now has many years of experience caring for children. The type of adjustment given to our pediatric practice members depends on their age. Low-force and no-force techniques keep care gentle for your little ones. Our young kids are quick to jump on the table, feeling excited to get adjusted. We’ll walk both parent and child through the adjustment, making sure everyone is comfortable before getting started. The extensive examination and evaluation procedure allows us to know exactly how best to help them.
