So, we definitely get it - bringing your child to a chiropractor can sound like a scary thought. "How are they possibly going to adjust my baby?"..."Is it safe?"..."But they're so fragile". Some parents bring their children to us because they truly want to use a natural, drug-free approach to increase or maintain their child's best health. Unfortunately though, most parents bring their children to us as a "last resort" because they've tried everything else and nothing has worked. Insert the word "fear" here. Fear is the #2 reason most parents don't bring their child to the chiropractor first (you're like..."well what about the #1 reason?" - we'll get to that in a bit).

Why? Let's look at what fear really is - False Expectations Appearing Real.

  • Parents FEAR their child will be injured or die.
  • Parents FEAR this won't work either.
  • Parents FEAR they'll waste their money.
  • Parents FEAR they'll be ridiculed by their pediatrician.

The list of FEARs could go on and on.

But let's get real on the truth of children being adjusted.

  • It's so incredibly safe that adverse reactions are practically non-existent. 
  • Chiropractic does work by enhacing the nervous system to create a higher healing potential - no matter what the size of the individual.
  • The VALUE of getting your health (and LIFE) back completely outweighs any $$ amount you could spend on health care
  • More and more health professionals are beginning to realize that kids getting adjusted (#chirokids) are much healthier than those who don't get adjusted

The list of BENEFITS could go on and on.


Check out this mom's story. She was skeptical and maybe a bit afraid too. And then she pushed her FEARS aside and the outcome...well we'll let you watch and see for yourself -

Oh yeah - I didn't forget about reason #1 most parents don't bring their child to the chiropractor. It's EDUCATION. Most moms and dads aren't educated about why it's important for kids to see a chiropractor regularly - ranging from difficulty with sleep, colick, reflux, asthma, allergies or even general wellness - chiropractic has outrageously awesome benefits for kids that more moms and dads need to know about.
