Pediatric Chiropractor in Salem, OR
Pediatric chiropractor in Salem, OR: Chiropractors have been performing adjustments on children and infants for more than one hundred years! Many childhood ailments respond to chiropractic care. This safe, non-invasive procedure involves the manipulation of the body to place the vertebrae in the correct positions in the spinal column. Chiropractic is based on the important relationship between the spine and the nervous system. Spinal dysfunctions caused by subluxations can alter how the body functions and affect health of children.

When children come into this world, their bodies will be subjected to various kinds of stress. Even at birth, infants can be susceptible to spinal misalignment due to fetal positions in utero, a slow birth or a c-section. Some newborn health complaints such as colic, reflux, breastfeeding difficulties, sleep disturbances, allergic reactions, and chronic infections can sometimes be traced to nervous system irritation caused by spinal and cranial misalignments.
As a child develops, things can happen along the way. Poor posture, falls, injuries during athletic activities, can all affect how the body properly develops if there are subluxations. Not only that, chiropractic care helps many children with some common behavioral and mental issues!
Children can experience relief naturally with chiropractic care:
The first thing Dr. Whitmire will do is to conduct a thorough history of your child’s health and any complaints. This is followed by a complete physical examination of the child’s spine. We are trained to evaluate pediatric spinal problems, and will use gentle, specific skills to find and adjust any involved spinal areas.
Spinal adjustments for infants and young children involve a gentle fingertip pressure to correct spinal misalignments. This helps restore mobility to spinal joints. A child’s spine generally responds faster compared to an adult’s spine. The actual number of adjustments will vary depending on many factors such as the length of time the problem has been present.
