Infants and Kids

Many people think that chiropractors treat only adults. But children can also benefit from regular chiropractic care. Injuries that children receive during their everyday lives and while playing sports can cause many symptoms that can be treated by chiropractors. This includes soreness, discomfort, stiffness or neck pain. The symptoms are something you should listen to and find out what is causing it.  

Pediatric chiropractors — those that are trained to work with children — always adapt the assessment and treatment to fit the special needs of their young patients.  Dr. Slota looks at the entire child, checking how they are functioning both physically and in their daily life.  Dr. Slota also provides highly skilled treatments that are very gentle and safe.

Why Chiropractic Care for Children

Children may experience trauma at birth that affects their body. Later childhood activities — like learning to walk, participating in sports or riding a bicycle — can also cause spinal health problems, or make them worse.

Even injuries that appear to be minor — such as a fall off a bicycle — can damage other parts of the body, such as the pelvis, skull, spine and limbs. Dr. Slota is uniquely trained to identify problems in these areas.

Dr. Slota can also determine whether “growing pains” are signs of more severe health problems. Regular chiropractic care for children may be able to head off problems that many adults experience later in life.

Treating Childhood Conditions

One of the main types of chiropractic care for children is treating back and neck pain or other issues related to the spine. Dr. Slota can check children as young as newborns for problems, especially those related to the health of their spine.

When Dr. Slota works with children, the same highly skilled treatments that adults receive are given with a more gentle and soft precision. A hands-on, drug-free approach is important. Visits include a physical exam, diagnosis and treatment. In the case of children, we understand that care needs to be tailored and suitable to the age of the child.  Dr. Slota has been adjusting children for over ten years and has three children also! 

Children who already have a regular pediatrician — who provides medications and treats serious illnesses — can also benefit from a pediatric chiropractor. Much of the work that chiropractors do with children is preventative wellness care, such as helping their spine stay healthy and strong as they grow.
