Pediatric Chiropractic Care In Waterloo IA

Why should every child see a pediatric chiropractor?

Children deserve to enter the world as healthy as possible. While we support a natural approach to birth whenever possible, we acknowledge the effects that trauma can have on both baby and mom during the labor and delivery process, particularly when medical interventions such as vacuum extraction, episiotomy, caesarean sections, or other surgical procedures are employed. In the current healthcare economy, birth trauma is frequently ignored and overlooked in many cases.

Pediatric chiropractors are specially and extensively trained to detect signs of both macro- and micro-trauma and their destructive effects on a child’s developing nervous system. When misalignments known as vertebral subluxations put pressure and stress on the nerves or the spinal cord, chiropractors gently restore proper alignment, thereby removing interference to the nervous system and restoring proper function.

Six Major Events in a Baby's First Year

There are six major developmental events in a baby’s first year of life when chiropractic examinations are especially important:

  • After the birth process.
  • When the baby starts to hold his/her head up.
  • When the baby sits up.
  • When the baby starts to crawl.
  • When the baby starts to stand.
  • When the baby starts to walk.

Toddlerhood through childhood is a very “physical” time. Those first unsteady steps soon evolve into running, jumping, falls, and accidents, which are all part of a normal childhood. While most falls are minor, at times they can cause nerve-damaging subluxations with serious long-term consequences. For that reason, all children need periodic spinal check-ups as the continue to grow and develop! Just as we perform tune-ups and regular maintenance on our car and go to the dentist to get our teeth cleaned on a regular basis, so should we maintain our spinal health. Life never stops and we should keep our spine and nervous system healthy for our whole life!

The effects of an adjustment on an infant, toddler or school-aged child can be profound because it eliminates not just the symptom of many common ailments, but the underlying cause.

At Vanderloo Chiropractic our focus is ensuring that the nervous system has every opportunity to work efficiently and effectively. Nerve irritations (or vertebral subluxations) occur as a part of your child’s normal daily life and disrupt the delicate nervous system. They may result from physical, chemical, and emotional stressors to our health, such as birth, bad posture, sleeping on our stomachs, crashes and falls, poor food choices, dehydration, exposure to chemicals and toxins, as well as stress and anxiety.

Top 10 Reasons Parents take their Children to a Pediatric Chiropractor:

  2. To support and enhance “first-class” nerve communication throughout the body, improving the function of their nervous system to promote health and well-being

  5. To reduce the detrimental impact our modern world has on our children's health
  6. To encourage children to thrive by supporting digestive health

  8. To promote body balance - helping to resolve poor posture, asthma, allergies, and bed-wetting
  9. To help kids stay fun, happy, and light-hearted
  10. To help kids stay in tip-top shape for performance in arts, academics, and athletics
