How Chiropractic Helps

How does this work? The truth is that babies and children get injured just like adults do.

One study showed that 99% of babies have injured necks following the birth process. Those injuries can profoundly affect the way the body and brain communicate, and cause the baby’s brain to act stressed out. Then, as the nervous system develops, it makes permanently stressed out connections.

Adjusting the spine stimulates the brain to make new connections, and has a calming effect on the whole nervous system.

Dr. Erickson and Kids

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.
