Pediatric Chiropractic in Spearfish

Helping Children Thrive

Pediatric chiropractic is a safe, gentle and efficient way of optimizing childhood development and maximizing nervous system function. Less-than-ideal nervous system health is frequently the cause of many of the issues that we see kids struggling with today, such as ADD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, sensory processing disorders and chronic infections.

Detecting Nervous System Stress

Pediatric Chiropractic in SpearfishStress on the nervous system can often begin in-utero and most certainly during the birth process itself, which often puts tremendous pressure on the neck of the infant due to these common scenarios:

  • Cesarean section
  • Forceps delivery
  • Malpresentation of the baby in the birth canal
  • Pulling, tugging and twisting of the vulnerable neck of the newborn
  • The effects of suction devices on the skull and neck

Chiropractors are trained to detect these stressors to the spine, which almost always result in spinal misalignment. Many adult health problems can be traced back to some of these birth issues, as well as the everyday aspects of just being a kid: falling, jumping, collisions, contusions, concussions, sports injuries and broken bones.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Children

Although we see small miracles on an almost daily basis with the kids in our practice, we did have a special little boy come in recently suffering from severe developmental delays. His parents wanted to give pediatric chiropractic a try, and within weeks we all began to see remarkable results. The child’s speech began to rapidly expand and improve, and his interactions with his family, noticeably absent, became more warm and inclusive.

We’ve found that infants and children respond exceptionally well to chiropractic care, particularly if they’re suffering from these additional conditions:

  • Acid reflux
  • ADD or ADHD
  • Allergies
  • Colic
  • Digestive issues
  • Ear infections
  • Feeding difficulties
  • Headaches
  • Seizures
