A Passion for Children’s Health
Our chiropractors each took their unique path in discovering their love of caring for children. Dr. Victoria was a young dancer when she began seeing a chiropractor for a back injury. She soon realized how much better her life was when she was adjusted regularly, and noticed a significant change to her asthma symptoms after a few visits. She decided her mission in life would be to help others experience that same increased quality of life at the age of 12.
Dr. Conor entered chiropractic school thinking he might want to specialize in sports injuries, since he graduated from the University of Maine with an Exercise Science and Kinesiology degree. Once he started taking courses in pediatrics, his focus in practice was transformed. He loved seeing the impact of chiropractic not only on a child’s life but on their entire family.
How Your Child Can Benefit From Chiropractic
You might be wondering why a child should visit a chiropractor. It’s true they don’t necessarily experience aches and pains as adults do but, there are many common childhood conditions that can be addressed by what we do, including:
- A quicker recovery when ill
- Better focus at school
- Improved mood
- Better sleep
- Decreased anxiety
- Fewer growing pains
- Fewer tantrums
- Improvement in colic and acid reflux
- Less sickness
- Reduced breastfeeding troubles
- Regular bowel movements
By enhancing the function of your child’s nervous system, chiropractic care can make a positive impact on numerous concerns.
Boosting Your Child’s Confidence in Us
Your child will be welcomed with open arms. We’ll get to know them, and take it slow to build their trust. They’ll get to know us, too. We might adjust their stuffed animal, baby doll or toy dinosaur while they watch. Babies and smaller children can lie on Mom or Dad during their adjustment. We’ll make sure your child is comfortable and ready to receive their adjustment before we get started.
