Pediatric Chiropractic in Maryville

We believe that every child deserves the best opportunity to live their life as God intended them to. That means proper growth and development of the brain and body, which flourish when they’re free from interference. This interference can occur as early as the birthing process, making it of utmost importance to have your kids checked by a chiropractor.

Why Dr. Carolyn Focuses on Kids

During Dr. Carolyn’s undergraduate education, her nephew had chronic ear infections and was being considered for tube surgery at just 9 months old. By recommendation his mother took him to the chiropractor and after several adjustments his symptoms improved. He found relief with consistent care, was able to avoid surgery, and has not suffered from an ear infection since.

From that time on, Dr. Carolyn knew that prenatal and pediatric chiropractic would be her two areas of emphasis in practice. When your child is under care, they may experience benefits such as

  • Better sleep
  • Proper growth
  • Improved digestion and elimination
  • Breastfeeding with ease

Getting Your Child Started With Care

The new patient process is the same for a child as any other new patient. If you’d like to fill out paperwork first, their initial appointment will go a bit quicker, which is great for children who don’t like sitting still. We can even do the initial consultation with you over the phone, so your child doesn’t have to wait through that. When they come in for their first visit, we’ll do an examination and neurological assessment with the CLA INSiGHT™ scans.

Tailoring Our Techniques to the Individual

The way we adjust a person will depend on their unique situation, even with a baby or child. Hardly any pressure is required to adjust a child. It’s more of a slight vibration. Their bodies respond quickly without requiring any twisting, cracking or popping.

If your child feels nervous about getting adjusted, we’ll let them hold our adjusting tool and even try it out on a doll. They’ll realize it doesn’t hurt and isn’t scary. Most kids think it’s fun to visit our office!

Keeping Your Kids Healthy

One of our pediatric patients was a baby whose mom just wanted to see her smile. The baby, who seemed to always be crying, was clearly in discomfort. After one adjustment, the mom shared a picture of her baby’s first smile. Chiropractic helped her be calm and comfortable. Our other patients include kids who don’t have to take antibiotics every winter or avoid having rounds of tubes inserted for ear infections.

Once your child has overcome any challenge they have, you want to know how to make sure it doesn’t come back. We’ll discuss the idea of wellness care with you, which will support your child throughout their life.
