Pediatric Chiropractic At Sturgis Chiropractic

Chiropractic care is not only for adults. Our youngest patients are brand new to this world. From birth, our bodies experience nerve interferences that lead to a variety of symptoms, including colic in babies and ear infections in school-aged children. With gentle, precise adjustments – your littlest loved ones can live happier, healthier lives.

Sturgis Chiropractic is here for your entire family. Even the smallest spines need maintenance. Dr. Johnson has the knowledge and expertise to adjust kids of all ages. Learn more about our approach to pediatric chiropractic care.

Gentle, Specific Adjustments

Dr. Johnson uses a gentle pressure technique to adjust pediatric patients. For example, for infants, he uses the same amount of pressure you would use to check the ripeness of a tomato. With 16 years of experience behind him, he feels with his hands the way in which the bones must move to return to their proper position.

When it comes to pediatric care, we leave out the guesswork. Our practice is home to INSiGHT™ scanning technology. This safe, non-invasive nerve scan helps Dr. Johnson identify the exact location of your child’s misalignment.

Our scanning technology detects heat in the spinal column where subluxation is present. With this information, Dr. Johnson is better able to perform precise chiropractic adjustment for kids. We also recommend X-rays for most school-age children.

Benefits of Care

When your child’s spine is stuck or fixated, also known as subluxation, we often see illness as a result. Common symptoms that present in pediatric patients are:

  • Allergies
  • Tonsillitis/Strep Throat
  • Ear Infections
  • Colic and Reflux
  • Immune System
  • Digestive Issues
  • Respiratory Issues/Asthma
  • Bladder Control/Bed Wetting
  • Headaches

More serious symptoms include:

  • ADHD
    • Other sensory disorders
    • Seizures

Dr. Johnson is passionate about helping children live their lives to their fullest potential. You might be surprised what a healthy spine and nervous system can do for your child.

The Earlier, the Better

It is never too early to get your young ones started with care. The sooner their spines are checked, the better. Not only will a healthy spine help them feel better now, but they will be less likely to experience future illness as adults.

Dr. Johnson has witnessed the benefits of pediatric chiropractic care himself, when both of his children experienced chronic ailments following birth. His son’s colic and his daughter’s ear infections cleared up with regular adjustments.
