Chiropractor for Children for Natural Pain Relief
Chiropractic care is often recommended for adults, and also can be beneficial for children of all ages.
Children’s bodies are still growing and developing, which means they respond differently to chiropractic care.
We offer pediatric chiropractic care for children of all ages. Our chiropractor Dr. Kris Dorken, is specially trained in pediatric care and can help with a variety of issues, such as ear infections, constipation, and natural relief from common childhood illnesses.
Safe and gentle chiropractic care for kids addresses the skeletal and nervous systems of the body, which can be responsible for a number of unwanted conditions.
How Can I Tell If My Child Needs Chiropractic Care?
A child’s nervous system and spine can become injured without much awareness on the child’s part of pain or discomfort. Even when a child is experiencing pain, they may not be able to communicate it to you and it can come across as emotional issues, acting out or other behaviour.
Misalignments with the spine and central nervous system can also be the source of many other childhood issues, such as colic, ear infections and ADHD.

Conditions Chiropractors Can Treat for Children
There are many ways that pediatric chiropractic care can help your child. We often treat children suffering from the following conditions:
- Ear infections
- Bedwetting issues
- Poor posture or alignment
- Personal injuries
Each child’s condition will be different. That’s why your child’s treatment plan will be personalized for your unique needs.
Chiropractor Dr Kris uses gentle techniques to help ease pain and improve your child’s overall health.
How Do You Adjust Children and Babies?
Parents are sometimes nervous about chiropractic care for their little one.
Chiropractic Adjustments for kids are quite different from adjusting adults. The adjustment is extremely gentle and performed with adjusting tools.
The pressure applied is equivalent pressing a button or keyboard key.
At Core Wellness Centre, we are a family friendly clinic and Dr. Kris adjusts children on a daily basis.
When Your Child Has Neck Pain
Ongoing neck pain in children can be caused by sporting or playing accidents, falling out of a bunk bed or at an unusual angle, or for minor pain, children sleeping with improper pillows for their size and weight.
Many parents also have their children see a chiropractor for growth related issues. Chiropractors can do regular checks to ensure your child is growing correctly with proper posture and to help ensure good neural plasticity, which means nerve and brain development. Issues such as asthma, digestive problems and bed wetting can be treated with chiropractic care. Even children in their infancy can benefit from seeing a chiropractor to make sure that their development is going smoothly.
Benefits of a Chiropractor for Children
Another benefit of a chiropractor for children is that it is a natural way to handle the body. Medications can leave residues in the tissue of the body that can possibly cause problems in adulthood. Parents who are concerned about this will often opt for chiropractic treatment as it involves no medications and resolves a plethora of physical problems all by simply addressing the skeletal and nervous systems.
Your child’s health is of the utmost concern and all options should be taken into consideration when seeking care for them. Chiropractic medicine is a valuable tool that you can use to ensure a healthy and happy child.
It’s never too early to get chiropractic care to help your child get their best start in life.
