Pediatric Chiropractic

Toddler building with blocksFrequent meltdowns. Colic. Sensory issues. Refusal or inability to speak. Are you at your wit’s end trying to help your child with issues such as these? Perhaps you’ve seen various doctors and even specialists but haven’t gotten answers. At Advanced Chiropractic Life Center, we see kids that have intense and challenging issues such as sensory processing issues, digestion problems, food intolerances, and many others.

The good news is that children experiencing these and other difficult issues often will have their particular problem lessen or disappear after receiving chiropractic care.

What to Expect

Zoom Consultation

We do a consult with Mom and Dad usually ahead of time on the phone so that they’re not trying to have a conversation with Dr. Lindsay at the office with their child in the room, which can be challenging and distracting.

The Zoom consultation is incredibly helpful as parents can discuss with Dr. Lindsay what’s going on so she’ll know what to check when you bring your child in.

Exam

When it’s time for your child’s appointment, Dr. Lindsay will perform a comprehensive exam to get to the root cause of what’s going on with your child. Depending on how old your little one is, she may use some of the testing equipment that we have at the office. This equipment includes the surface EMG which is non-invasive, safe, and painless.

She also may look at different reflexes and check spinal tension in your child’s muscular system, bones, and connective tissue. In addition, Dr. Lindsay evaluates the structure of the spine and feels the tone of it. Depending on your child’s age, she also will observe your child crawling or walking, playing or doing different arm movements, and see how they’re talking.

Dr. Lindsay will also ask questions about your child’s immune system, how often they get sick, experience temper tantrums, how stressful or healthy their birth was, and other areas as needed. She will explain the process each step of the way. Rest assured her care is always gentle.

Care Plan

After Dr. Lindsay has reviewed the exam findings, she will develop a customized care plan including how many sessions she thinks your child will need.
