Pediatric Chiropractic

kidsWhile many people are aware of the benefits of chiropractic care for adults, they may be unaware of the tremendous benefits chiropractic care can provide children with managing certain conditions, improving overall wellness and preventing future problems.

Dr. Clayton has received advanced training in pediatric chiropractic and is a fellow of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.  Because of this training and his experience, Dr. Clayton can help children experience the benefits of chiropractic care using analysis and techniques that are safe, gentle, specific for pediatric patients and different from those used for adults.

Some of the following are just a few of the many conditions Dr. Clayton has helped children manage through chiropractic care:

  • Flat head syndrome
  • Torticollis
  • Inutero complications to either the child or mother during pregnancy
  • Colic
  • Ear infections
  • Recurrent or frequent illness
  • Scoliosis
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Poor posture
  • Improving Health and Wellness

Some challenges at birth that can lead to subluxation:

  • Pulling and twisting of baby at delivery
  • Caesarean section
  • Forceps
  • Suction extraction
  • Even “natural” birthing methods can cause spinal subluxations

Whether it is correcting problems that develop at birth or those that develop from the bumps, falls, and scrapes a child has as he/she grows, the earlier potential subluxations are corrected through pediatric chiropractic care, the better.  The human body has a tremendous capacity to adapt and subluxations that are left uncorrected in a child could develop into far more severe problems as an adult.
