Chiropractic care can be helpful for your child's development. After development and birth, the physical stress and trauma continue when children grow into toddlers. They are faced with the developmental challenge of crawling and walking. While children are learning to overcome these challenges, there is a significant about of straining, twisting, and falling. While growth continues and the child starts to be at the age where they play with pets, friends, family, etc. they can again endure more physical stress and trauma. Generally, children in the preschool-middle school age play hard and try to play without limits.

As toddlers grow into kids, they often start to develop bad posture, start playing contact sports, wear heavier backpacks (most likely the wrong way), and deal with the stress of more daily responsibilities. As these kids start to become teenagers and high school graduates, they often become part of the workforce. Usually, they are jobs that require a lot of moving around and physical labor such as servers, factory workers, etc.

At Hildebrand Chiropractic, we make a point to make sure that all the falls, stress, trauma, and physical demands that your children endure do not stop them from being kids. We love treating children of all ages. As a parent, you want to protect your child from pain and sickness as much as you can. We get that! Let us help you! Chiropractic care is all about protecting your body from harm.

Not only that, we will make sure you know what is going on every step of the way.

Pediatric Success Stories

Failure to Thrive

A mother brought her child in, who was labeled with failure to thrive by the doctors. The doctors had tried everything, and the infant was losing weight.

Dr. Hildebrand noticed the little boy couldn’t focus his eyes on any one thing or one person. “At about the fifth adjustment, I thought, ‘I have to do something because this child’s not getting better.’ What I did then was adjust the area with more force,” said Dr. Hildebrand. He then sat the boy up. After the adjustment, the child looked in Dr. Hildebrand’s eyes and held his gaze for an entire minute. The boy’s entire body relaxed instantly.
