Pediatric Chiropractic Care at
Total Health Chiropractic

Baby boy crawlingWhen Dr. Taylor was growing up, he found a passion for teaching kids. He coached hockey during high school and has always wanted to be a mentor to children. In opening Total Health Chiropractic, he knew he wanted to have a kid-friendly place that was fun and enjoyable for his pediatric practice members.

There are numerous benefits that children can get from being under chiropractic care. The many conditions that we often see include

  • Asthma
  • Bed-wetting
  • Colic
  • Ear infections
  • Irritability
  • Neuro-behavioral issues

Dr. Taylor’s primary technique is particularly powerful for children who have ADD/ADHD. The top bone of your spine wraps around your brain stem. Often, we find that kids with sensory issues have a problem in the top bone of the spine. Torque Release Technique™ activates their parasympathetic nervous system, calming the sympathetic nervous system that causes them to be overstimulated. When their parasympathetic nervous system takes over, your child can calm down and focus more in school or at home.

The nerves that go into the ears and control drainage stem from the upper neck. If the top two bones of a child’s spine are out of place, it puts pressure on those nerves. Because of that, there is a dysfunction and drainage doesn’t take place. When the alignment of those bones is corrected, the body can function as it should.

If your child suffers from bed-wetting, they may have a problem with the nerves in their low back. These nerves go directly to the bladder. By addressing the bones in the lower back, we may see their bed-wetting issue resolve.

Your child doesn’t need to have a problem to be under chiropractic care. Think of all the running, falling and jumping your child does. The bones of their spine can constantly shift out of place. You may write it off as just another bruise or bump. Over time, the bone that is misaligned can cause serious concerns. By seeing a chiropractor, we can make sure they keep healing and thriving as they get older.

A Gentle Touch

If your baby is a newborn, Dr. Taylor will use just the touch of his fingertips to adjust them. The pressure needed is similar to what you’d use to test the ripeness of a tomato. Since their bones aren’t fully formed yet, a simple vibration is all that’s needed.

Once your child starts walking, they can be adjusted with the Torque Release Technique. We do so with the Integrator™ instrument. If your child feels nervous, they can watch a parent be adjusted or play with our toy version of the Integrator. We’ll make sure they feel ready before starting with their first adjustment.
