Pediatric & Special Needs Care (ICPA Certified Chiropractic)

Pediatric and Special Needs Care (ICPA Certified Chiropractic)

Most people don’t think of getting chiropractic care for their newborn, but infancy and childhood are the most important time in a person’s life to receive chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic adjustments aim to clear the interference in your nervous system caused by spinal misalignment. The nerve system controls all signals from your brain to the rest of your body; it controls and coordinates every other cell, tissue, and organ. A well-functioning nervous system improves the ability of the body to function and develop optimally.

There are many causes of stress to the nervous system in children, toddlers, and even newborns. One of the most stressful experiences a child has in his or her lifetime is the birthing process. Twisting, torqueing, compression and tractioning of a child’s fragile spine occurs from the use of forceps, vacuum extraction, and even during cesarean delivery. All of this physical stress causes misalignments and distortions in the spine and nervous system. Even a seemingly insignificant minor fall or accident can create stored trauma to the spine which can lead to problems as the child gets older. Chemical, environmental and emotional stressors can also lead to nerve interference.

Diagnosing Nervous System Interference Your Child

The best and safest way to determine if your child is suffering from nerve interference is to have them evaluated by a chiropractor with specialized training in pediatrics. We use our hands and computer scans to diagnose any stored stress in the cranium, spine, and nervous system. Some symptoms that indicate nerve interference include: difficulty sleeping, trouble breastfeeding, constipation, colic, failure to thrive, difficulty crawling and walking, asthma, allergies, attention deficit, visual and auditory disturbances, prolonged or recurring illnesses, and hormone imbalances. Additionally, chiropractic care can be especially beneficial for children with special needs.

Is Chiropractic Safe for Children?

Did you know that colic, bedwetting, ear infections, asthma, scoliosis, and many other childhood conditions can be traced back to spinal problems that start in-utero? Yes! Chiropractic is safe for children. We love kids! Even if you think your child is in good health, a preventative spinal exam is a good idea.

We specialize in performing chiropractic adjustments on children: we use techniques that are gentle and non-invasive. We use a very light amount of pressure, tailored for each child’s spine. In fact, we have even treated infants within two hours of birth. Remember: it’s never too late (or early!) to start receiving chiropractic care.

I can't say enough about Dr. Jason Van Ness and the team at Van Ness Chiropractic! When people ask if I know a good Chiropractor in town, without hesitation, I recommend Van Ness Chiropractic. Not only for "fixing" what's broken, but for wellness maintenance, too. I see people in the office ranging from babies to elderly, athletes of all kinds, people who travel far and wide and make time, when in town, to visit Dr. Van Ness. Van Ness Chiropractic offers a vainly of services and is not limited to Chiropractic care. Besides my regular Chiropractic visits, I have taken advantage of Acupuncture and Massage Therapy. My quality of life is enriched by regular visits to Dr. Jason Van Ness and his team!Stop by and meet the team...you'll be thankful you did.

Dr.Van Ness has built himself a great place for health. I’ve been seeing him since he did a residency with Dr.Cox, late 1990s. As a legacy patient he has always kept me straight. He even came in on a weekend to assist my wife with an issue. His place isn’t just straightening crooked people. He treats young athletes to the “ole guys” equally. His center of health has a variety of therapists to get you the proper care you want.
