Dr. Dennis James, your Keller-area family chiropractor, is proud to provide pediatric chiropractic services. Pediatric chiropractic helps children to grow with a properly aligned spine. The early years of a child’s life are formative, and gentle chiropractic adjustments can aid a child during these years as they develop and their body grows. Here’s a bit about our pediatric chiropractic services, as well as the benefits that pediatric chiropractic can provide to your growing child.
Dr. Dennis James provides pediatric chiropractic for children, including newborns to young adults. During youth, our bodies grow at an incredible rate. That can result in growing pains and misalignments. Chiropractic adjustments ensure that the body is growing with proper alignment. Pediatric chiropractic mitigates the odds of injury caused by growth, and it can assist in overcoming a number of ailments (listed below).
When working with a child, especially a newborn or an infant, gentle care is key. Since the body of a young child is still very much developing, it is crucial to take great care in making adjustments. Therefore, we utilize utmost care in performing pediatric chiropractic adjustments. We utilize “gentle” chiropractic techniques. In performing an adjustment, very small amounts of pressure are utilized (often no more pressure than it takes to hold a pencil). As a child grows, more pressure can be used to accommodate for stronger, more established muscles.
