Rocky Mountain Chiropractic chiropractors provide safe, gentle and effective treatment plans to heal a variety of pediatric conditions that will also ensure a healthy spine and nervous system well into adulthood.
What Is Pediatric Chiropractic Care?
Used as natural therapy to treat wide a range of conditions since ancient times, chiropractic therapies have evolved to include specialized chiropractic care for children and infants as a drug-free alternative to address many child-related conditions. Certified and experienced Rocky Mountain Chiropractic practitioners are licensed to provide detailed corrective treatment plans that not only relieve a range of symptoms and childhood disorders, but heal and treat the actual source of the problem.
What Pediatric Conditions Can Rocky Mountain Chiropractic Chiropractors Treat?
A traumatic birth can cause misalignment of the spine that sets the stage for a range of conditions that may not seem immediately related to the solutions that pediatric chiropractic care can provide. In fact, the source of many childhood illnesses and conditions can be traced to the spine and nervous system. Chiropractic care has been used successfully to treat ear infections, colic and attention deficit with effective treatment for many other conditions that include:
- Bed wetting
- Colic/gas pains in infants
- Frequent sickness
- Persistent headaches
- Head tilt
- Joint pains/growing pains
- Frequent sickness
- Poor posture
- Tantrums and irritability
Certain conditions in children are rooted in imbalanced and irritated spinal joints and nerves that cause problems in behavior and disease or disorder in the body. Sometimes a subluxation in a newborn can be the result of traumatic birth, breech delivery, or even stress. Rocky Mountain Chiropractic chiropractic doctors provide expert diagnosis and gentle treatment plans designed for the specific needs of each child.
What Happens During a Pediatric Chiropractic Session?

Did You Know?
Chiropractic Care for children dates back to the turn of the century. The founder of general chiropractic care, D.D Palmer emphasized that checking a child’s spine from birth onwards was essential to avoid a range of conditions, and that chiropractic treatment could alleviate or eliminate the possibility of many imbalances and sicknesses exclusive to children and infants to ensure lifelong health.
