Pediatric Chiropractor Palm Beach Gardens

Every parent wants their child to have the best possible health. Chiropractic can be your first line of defense against a host of ailments. Your little ones can enjoy the highest levels of wellness with our conservative, holistic approach. Dr. Natalie is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and loves to see kids benefiting from chiropractic care.

There are many conditions we may be able to help with chiropractic:

  • ADD/hyperactivity
  • Asthma
  • Colic
  • Congestion
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Ear infections
  • Reflux

A Gentle Touch

Adjusting a child is different than how an adult is adjusted. Infants and babies require only the pressure of fingertips. There is no cracking or popping involved. With older children, Dr. Natalie will explain to them what she’s going to do, walking them through each step. Usually, Mom or Dad becomes a patient first, then brings their kids in. Seeing their parents comfortable in our environment is typically enough to put your children at ease.

Providing a Fun Experience

We want your child to love coming to the chiropractor. They can play with toys or color in coloring books in our reception area. We’ll have Mom or Dad fill out paperwork while your child marks on a diagram where they feel they have problems (if they’re old enough). They have an owl-shaped table made just for kids to lie on during their adjustments. We’ll give them a sticker afterward, too.

A child’s first appointment tends to be quicker since we don’t have years of history to discuss. Dr. Natalie likes to involve your child throughout their visit so that they feel included.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why would I have my newborn or young child adjusted?

The labor and delivery process puts a lot of stress on the newborn’s neck and spine. Infant issues, such as torticollis, plagiocephaly, and reflux, may be greatly helped with early chiropractic intervention.

Young children often fall during their development years. Chiropractic care ensures proper spinal alignment as they grow.

Can chiropractic help with colic and, if so, how?

Chiropractic adjustments help relax the nervous system. When the baby is relaxed, they tend to be less fussy.

How safe are adjustments on children?

Chiropractic adjustments on children use only the slightest finger pressure. Adjustments are so gentle, babies sometimes sleep during the entire adjustment, and children laugh their way through it.

How old were Dr. Natalie’s children when they received their first adjustment?

“My children have been adjusted since the day they were born. I have also been adjusted since birth,” she said.

How often should my child be adjusted?

We always suggest at least monthly checkups for most patients. Every child is unique; the frequency depends on the child’s needs.
