Our gentle techniques allow us to care for you, big or small.
Our philosophy at New Directions Chiropractic is to use minimal force to achieve greater results. Our doctors use a gentle approach when adjusting that allows you to feel comfortable, relaxed and secure. The applied pressure is unique to your stage of life; whether newborn or adult, we tailor our craft to meet your needs.
At New Directions Chiropractic, we want to educate the entire family on the importance of spinal health. Establishing healthy habits in our children at a young age is vital to their success as adults. Just as we teach them to brush their teeth to keep them in good condition, encouraging them to take care of their spine is equally as important.
As children grow, their spine changes along with their body. When their nervous systems are functioning at optimal levels through chiropractic care, their bodies adapt better to their physical changes. Additionally, many childhood issues such as ADHD, allergies, bedwetting, colic and ear infections can be improved, if not remedied by regular visits to the chiropractor.
It's important to remember that kids suffer stresses on their body just as adults do, but on a smaller level. Since significant spinal trauma can occur at, or prior to birth, many parents elect to have their newborn's spine checked right after birth. Many developmental milestones such as learning to hold up the head, sitting upright, crawling, and walking are all activities that are affected by spinal alignment and are important times to have a child checked by a chiropractor. Additionally, sports injuries, playground bumps and heavy school bags are all physical strains to a growing child's spine and nervous system.
You will find that most children enjoy going to the chiropractor. Our gentle techniques used to adjust children of all ages makes each visit a happy and painless experience.
