Pediatric Chiropractic at
Five Parks Chiropractic

It surprises many when they see newborns and infants in our practice, benefiting from chiropractic care. After all, why would a child have a bad back?

“Probably one of the greatest traumas that you and I face is the birth process,” says pediatric chiropractor Dr. Jim. “And while the birth process is natural, it can be quite an ordeal. Besides the physical nature of the process, induced labor, epidurals, vacuum extraction and countless other procedures can stress a newborn’s spine and nervous system.”

We see a lot of infants and pediatric cases. Naturally, we modify our adjusting procedures. Often we use little more pressure than what you’d use to test the ripeness of a tomato.

Some Benefits of Pediatric Chiropractic

Our youngest patients benefit from chiropractic care in many ways:

  • Improved breastfeeding
  • Avoiding constipation or loose bowels
  • Less irritability and improved sleep
  • Better bonding
  • Less colic and fewer ear infections

“We don’t treat these health issues,” says Dr. Jim. “In fact, chiropractic doesn’t treat or cure anything. All we do is detect and correct neurological disturbances along the spine with gentle adjustments. As your child’s body can better function as it was designed, we have seen all types of symptoms resolve.”

Natural Help for Common Childhood Conditions

Chiropractic care is often helpful with two of the most common health challenges affecting infants and children.


Colic is exasperating. It pains many mothers to see their child constantly crying. They feel helpless. Yet, many infants suffering from colic respond quickly to chiropractic care.

The other issue we see frequently are infants with chronic ear infections.

“Many children suffer ear infections between the ages of about three and five,” observes Dr. Jim. “The research is pretty clear. If antibiotic treatment is involved, the child is eight times as likely to have even more ear infections. And while we don’t treat infections, when nerve interferences in the upper spine are reduced, ear infections often resolve.”

At Five Parks Chiropractic we also help children with conditions such as ADHD, Autism, Sensory Processing Disorders, Asthma, Bowel Dysfunction and more.
