Pediatric Chiropractic at YourBack Chiropractic

Girl getting adjustmentMississauga Chiropractor Dr. Andersen recommends pediatric chiropractic care for newborns, toddlers, children, and adolescents. Each stage of early life brings about changes to the body, as well as new skills that can affect the joints and other structures. Approximately 60% of newborns and babies have some type of subluxation related to being born. After birth, a baby’s body may develop other misalignments during diaper changes, falls when learning to walk, and stress during playtime. Colic is another common condition in babies that our doctors treat, many times with probiotics to support gut health.

For children, our doctors identify areas of the body where the bones are developing at different rates and offers solutions to support a more optimum balance. They also work with children who have misalignments due to falls as they play and improve their coordination and movements. Scoliosis in toddlers and young children can be detected and treated with chiropractic care, and the condition needs to be addressed before puberty.

Immune function, body mechanics, illnesses, and spinal mechanics are just some of the other ways that our team can help your child grow and develop properly.

Young bodies are constantly developing, and any stress or injury can have long-lasting implications for your child. By addressing these issues early and providing additional support for your child’s developing body, our doctors help to set children up for success and ensure that they are able to enjoy their lives well into adulthood.

Children are often nervous, anxious, or even fearful of going to the doctor. Our doctors make each appointment enjoyable and engaging. Our office has toys in the waiting areas, and they tailor their approach to the personality of your child. They may play a game of peek-a-boo or educate children about their bodies and the treatments. Our team also listens to your child during the appointments. If they sense that your child is not comfortable with a specific treatment, they will adjust her technique.

Just as she does with adult patients, Dr. Andersen focuses on developing a trusting relationship with her younger patients.

Is Chiropractic Care Safe for Newborns, Babies, and Children?

Many chiropractic techniques can be adjusted for the unique needs of a young body, but the treatments must be performed with a gentle touch and nature. Dr. Andersen is recognized as an excellent chiropractic provider for young patients, from newborns to toddlers, children, and teenagers.
Can Chiropractic Care Help Children Who are Involved in Sports?

Yes! In fact, chiropractic care is essential for children and teenagers who are involved in sports. Our doctors can help your child improve performance in sports, as well as address issues related to injuries. We recommend periodic treatments for children who play sports because many issues do not cause obvious symptoms.
