Pediatric Chiropractic from Whole Child Wellness

By: Whole Child Wellness   06/05/2014

Chiropractic is based on the important relationship between the spine and the nervous system. One of the most basic ideas in chiropractic is that dysfunction in the spine and its joints can lead to dysfunction within the nervous system. Since the nervous system controls and coordinates all of the systems of the body, spinal dysfunction (also called a subluxation) can have wide ranging effects on the body’s health. Chiropractors have been caring for children for more than 100 years. Many of the common childhood ailments will respond to this safe, natural form of health care. Parents, especially those already receiving chiropractic themselves, are seeking out Dr. Brooks, DC, CACCP for the same safe care for their children. Dr. Brooks is a Board Certified Pediatric Chiropractor (ICPA) and has many years of experience with children. This training makes it possible for her to evaluate and adjust the spinal misalignments and musculoskeletal systems in children. Spinal adjustments for infants and young children involve very light fingertip pressure to correct spinal misalignments. Dr. Brooks, DC, CACCP offers specific, gentle adjustments appropriate to the infant/child’s spine and craniosacral therapy to allow the body to function at 100%.
