Pediatric Wellness Care
Caring for Your Family Like Our Own
The Active Care Difference
At Active Care, we believe every body has the ability to heal itself. As chiropractors, our job is to ensure your child is functioning optimally to do so!
When you enter our practice, you become part of our family. We care for you children as we would our own family. We believe you know your child best and are here to listen to what brought you to our practice family.
Seeing the whole picture
Being in the confined space of the womb during pregnancy as well as the delivery process is taxing on a baby’s body (and mama’s body too!). As a result, getting evaluated by a chiropractor is important to making sure your babies and bigs have the best start to life. We address every concern and are with you every step of the way in regaining your child’s health
What does a pediatric chiropractic wellness visit to Active Care look like?
What Can I Expect?
Active Care is a family practice designed to welcome you as a whole family, from the newest babies throughout the growing and developing teenage years.
A well-baby exam can be performed in a cozy pillow in our warm office or on the comfort of mom’s belly. Our bigger kids sit with a caregiver on our owl chiropractic table during the laid-back exam. We will assess your baby after a thorough history is obtained, and discuss care recommendations with you.
As parents, you play an important role in your child’s health and this is a team effort. We discuss chiropractic care recommendations, nutritional and supplement support, and activities to be performed at home in between visits in our office.
Whether it is chronic ear infections, ADHD, disrupted sleep patterns, newborn issues with latching, favoring one side of the head after delivery, not meeting milestones or sitting, crawling, walking when appropriate or if those movements look different than others, constipation, reflux, colic, the list goes on, we can help address these concerns by making sure your child’s nervous system is functioning optimally.
- Most insurances accepted
- We open early and stay open late during the week and have weekend hours to accommodate even the busiest schedules.
Starting them off right
Regular chiropractic visits and exercise provide many benefits for overall health and wellness for children too!
The nervous system controls your body! Your brain and spinal cord are the “computer” of your body. Chiropractic adjustments help to restore nervous system function and therefore allow your children’s body to function at optimal potential.
Newborn chiropractic promotes proper growth and development and limits early health challenges such as issues with nursing and spitting up.
Child chiropractic visits allow a child’s nervous system and spine to grow optimally and without interference. By allowing the nervous system to operate optimally, this can reduce ear infections, bed wetting, asthma and allergies.
Chiropractic visits for children improve your child’s immune system and digestive health and limit colic and constipation.
Mental health is important too. Chiropractic benefits for your children include encouraging nerve and brain development (neural plasticity) and promoting proper perception and awareness in ADHD, Sensory Integration Disorder and other neurodevelopmental disorders.
By being proactive about your child’s overall health and wellbeing, you will limit and support them through colds and infections and help them meet their optimal potential in health!
