What to Expect

Here at Children's Family Chiropractic we care for adults, expecting moms, children, newborns....EVERYONE!   Our vertebrae encase the spinal cord and the nerves that exit and enter the cord which go through little notches in the spine. When certain types of TRAUMA, TOXINS or NEGATIVE THOUGHTS that our body cannot adapt to changes the position of these vertebrae out of their proper place or makes them stuck, or less able to move properly, spinal nerve pressure occurs. This is called a SUBLUXATION. These subluxations can torque and pull on the spinal cord. Chiropractors are trained to locate, detect and help your body correct these subluxations so there is no interference between the brain and the rest of the body.  So, if you know someone with a spinal cord, they should be seeing a chiropractor for general health and wellness.

First Visit for Adults

Subluxation

We will start with a CONSULTATION time, which  is just speaking with the doctor in an effort to get information about what has happened with your spine during your lifetime that may have caused your subluxations.   We will also do a neurological examination and an exam on your spinal musculature using two noninvasive computer tests which objectively looks at how your nervous system is working and how your musculature is reacting to the subluxation. These tests are called INFRARED THERMOGRAPHY and SURFACE EMG (electromyography).  They are completely non-invasive for adults, pregnant women, infants and children.  X-RAYS are beneficial to create a better plan of care, we will take the minimum amount necessary (we do not perform x-rays on expecting women). X-rays are used primarily on adults to determine structure and degenerative processes. They allow the chiropractor to be more specific and exact during your care. 

Trauma, toxins & emotional stress that cause vertebrae to be out of alingnment, resulting in functional loss.

Babies, Children & Teens

We  are passionate about getting kids off to the very best start.  As the quote goes by F. Douglass "It is easier to build strong children, than to repair broken adults".  We are so passionate, that Dr. Heather actually provides FREE CHIROPRACTIC CARE to all newborns for the first MONTH of their lives*.  Below you can watch a video of Dr. Heather adjusting a newborn and you will see that is a very gentle process which looks more like a massage.  A first appointment with a baby, child or teen will involve going over history and then the actual adjustment with thorough explanations throughout the visit.  Sometimes, Dr. Heather will recommend a thermal scan or an x-ray on an older child or teenager.  We typically don't do x-rays on children or teens, unless there is a more significant concern, like scoliosis.
