Chiropractic for Children

Our children are our most precious resource. We provide care for newborns, infants, toddlers and school-aged children. Dr. Graham is a member of the International Chiropractic and Pediatric Association (ICPA), and is certified in the Webster Technique. The Webster Technique is a specific system of chiropractic analysis and adjustment to reduce interference to the nervous system and restore biomechanical balance in the pelvis allowing the baby to get in the best possible position for birth.

Give your child the gift of health for a lifetime with Chirorpractic

Most people are surprised to find out that most of the problems we have as adults began when we were children. Some adults may wonder why more and more children are seeing chiropractors. That’s a great question and the answer is simple: whether we have a large spine or a tiny little spine, if that spine is creating nerve stress then our magnificent bodies may not operate smoothly. It is much easier to grow a healthy child than fix a broken adult. Chiropractic support’s your body’s inborn healing system and helps you achieve your optimum health potential without the use of drugs.

How do babies and children get nerve irritation (vertebral subluxations)?

Vertebral subluxations occur as part of everyday normal life. They may result from physical and emotional stressors or insults to our health such bad posture, prolonged postures , sleeping on our stomach, knocks and falls, poor food choices, dehydration, exposure to chemicals and toxins, and stress and anxiety. Research also shows that vertebral subluxations also may occur from birth complications such as long labours, very fast labours, vacuum, forceps or caesarean section delivery.

Here are 10 reasons parents choose chiropractic for their children:

  1. To encourage good neural plasticity (brain and nerve development).
  2. To support the child’s overall health and well-being.
  3. To strengthen their child’s immunity and potentially reduce incidence of colds, ear aches and general illness.
  4. To assist with colic and Irritable Baby Syndrome.
  5. To help with asthma, breathing difficulties and allergies.
  6. To encourage good spinal posture and normal spinal structure development.
  7. To help improve their child’s ability to concentrate.
  8. To assist with behavioural disorders.
  9. To help alleviate digestive problems.
  10. To assist with bed-wetting and sleep issues.

Dr. Graham states, “As a Doctor of Chiropractic, I believe that I have and will continue to have a massive and direct impact on the health of my own children as well as the children in our community. My job is to check you and your children for subluxations and correct any that are causing interference to you expressing life and health the way you were designed to. It’s that simple!”
