Gentle, Safe and Effective Care For Your Child

Chiropractic care is completely safe for your child. Here at Northside Chiropractic in Grand Rapids, Michigan, when we are adjusting a child we use the same pressure to adjust your child as we would use to check a tomato’s ripeness.

Routine chiropractic care for your children is a safe, non-addictive method to helping your child stay healthy by ensuring any interference are removed from the nervous system and will provide your family with a strong basis for health and wellness. This is why it is vital for your children to learn good spine habits at a young age. Infants

Newborn Subloxation

Did you know 95% of newborns develop subluxations during the natural birthing process? If left untreated, this misalignment can be the cause of many newborn health complaints, such as:

  • Colic
  • Breathing Problems
  • Nursing Difficulties
  • Allergies
  • Torticollis
  • Sleep Issues

As your newborn grows it is vital your child receive spinal checkups so he or she can continue to hit their developmental milestones, like learning to hold their head up, sitting up, crawling and walking. All of these milestones can be affected if your child’s spine is not in its correct alignment.

Toddlers & Young Children

As your child continues to grow and become more active in sports or just their everyday life, small shifts can occur within their musculoskeletal system that can make room for subluxations to occur. By receiving routine chiropractic care, Dr. Dustin will be able to identify and correct these spinal misalignments to improve your child’s current health, as well as, prevent any future health problems from occurring.

However, if your child does suffer from an injury, Dr. Dustin and the rest of our team at Northside Chiropractic can help them recover quickly through chiropractic manipulation. After all, the faster you begin receiving treatment for an injury, the quicker that injury will heal. Plus, chiropractic care is a safe, all-natural and non-addictive solution to your child’s health issues, unlike medications and surgery that come with risky side effects.

Children who receive chiropractic care, report the following:

  • Improved Sleep
  • Improved Behavior
  • Improved Mood
  • Improved Immune System Function

It is easier to raise healthy kids than try to fix problems when they become adults. This is why we stress the importance of instilling good spine habits at a young age by bringing your child in for routine chiropractic care
