Gentle interventions, powerful results

From birth to the teenage years, childrens’ bodies are in flux. But their health doesn’t have to be.

If your child is experiencing nervous system or musculoskeletal discomfort, pediatric chiropractic care can ease systems and help them (and you) find relief.

Dr. Jacqueline works with children of all ages to address subluxation and its many physical and mental symptoms.

Pediatric chiropractic care is one of Dr. Jacqueline’s subspecialties. She is deeply knowledgeable about working with young patients.

Pediatric chiropractic can address issues from birth to teens

Frequently Asked Questions

Is chiropractic safe for children?

When performed by a licensed Doctor of Chiropractic with a deep understanding of the special needs of pediatric patients, chiropractic care is safe for children. Parents should be involved in their child’s care every step of the way, and we encourage you to speak with Dr. Jacqueline to address any concerns or fears about pediatric chiropractic care.

How do I know if chiropractic is right for my child?

Pediatric chiropractic can help address a host of health issues from birth to the teenage years. If your child is suffering from any of these conditions, chiropractic may be the right treatment choice for them:

  • Colic
  • Feeding issues
  • Mobility concerns
  • Missed mobility milestones
  • Headaches
  • Asthma or other respiratory illness
  • Scoliosis
  • ear infections
  • Sports injuries
  • Growing pains
  • Mood and anxiety issues
  • ADHD

How is pediatric chiropractic different from adult chiropractic?

In adults, chiropractic care is focused on resolving complaints completely. But in pediatric chiropractic, the patients’ bodies are still growing and changing. Therefore, the goal is to restore nervous and musculoskeletal system function so that the child’s body can learn how to heal itself.

What techniques does Dr. Jacqueline use for pediatric patients?

With her pediatric patients, Dr. Jacqueline uses a combination of spinal adjustments to restore nervous and musculoskeletal system function, massage to relieve pain and discomfort, nutritional advice, and therapeutic exercises to improve strength and movement. We use techniques such as sustained contact, activator, and SOT.
