Dr. Jenn’s philosophy on chiropractic care for kids is simple; If they are healthy, let them be healthy. If something doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t. A pediatric chiropractor will take a history and perform a physical exam to diagnosis the condition. Chiropractic care is appropriate for some conditions (see list below), but is not a substitute for medical care and vaccinations. Dr. Jenn often uses chiropractic care as an adjunct to the treatment already provided by the medical doctor and or physiotherapist. Dr. Jenn ensures that the care that she provides children is evidence-based and all care provided is in collaboration with the family. Here are a list of conditions that chiropractic can help with:
Torticollis/Head Tilt (link)
Plagiocephaly/Flat head syndrome (link)
Ear Infection (link)
Reaching Developmental Milestones (link)
Chiropractic care for infants and children is gentle and safe. A pediatric chiropractic adjustment is not the same as an adjustment for an adult and requires the same amount of pressure used to touch a ripe tomato.
