Pediatric Chiropractic in Chino Hills

Did you know that interference to the nervous system caused by misalignments in the spine can start as early as the day your child is born? Although normal and natural, the birthing process can put significant pressure on a baby’s tiny spine. For a child to grow up healthy, it’s important they don’t have nerve interference. The nervous system is needed for kids’ proper growth, development, and immune function. If the nervous system isn’t functioning at its peak, your child can’t function as optimally as they were meant to. That’s why we recommend you bring your child in to get adjusted as soon as possible after giving birth.

Gentle Adjustments & Milestone Checks

Rest assured that we don’t adjust babies and kids like adults. With newborns, we use the Activator® adjusting instrument, which is incredibly gentle. Then once kids are about 2 ½ to 3 years of age, our doctors can provide gentle manual adjustments. Chiropractic adjustments take compression off those nerves so the body can heal, function and adapt.

We also won’t take X-rays on young children. Instead, we can do different reflex tests to see if babies reach their milestones (e.g. crawling and walking)—ensuring they hit them when they should or even before.

Help for Common Childhood Conditions

Here are some of the different issues chiropractic care can address:

  • Colic: Babies who cry inconsolably with colic have a nervous system under distress. Our chiropractors give specific adjustments that take pressure off the spinal cord. Doing that decreases the colic and improves digestive issues.
  • Plagiocephaly: If you’ve seen babies with flat heads on one side, there are cranial adjustments that can help alleviate that issue and bring the head back to normal, so it can have room for the brain to grow. Without getting adjusted, little ones have to wear a helmet, which we believe is actually more destructive than constructive.
  • Organ-related issues: If your child has any organ-related issue, the best solution is to look to the spine, because that’s usually where the disease originates-from the spinal cord from the nerves being pinged. Chiropractic care can help with problems in the stomach, heart, lungs, etc.
  • Breastfeeding/latching: Chiropractic care can help ensure your baby latches easily, rotates their head side-to-side, and improves your baby’s suck.

Healthy Spines, Healthy Kids

As young children are constantly growing, falling, and their structure is continually changing, it’s a good idea to check their skeletal structure (their spine) to see if it’s properly moving. Chiropractic care is beneficial at every stage of childhood, as it can help kids grow and develop as they should. Chiropractic also boosts the immune system, so you may find your child doesn’t get sick as often as their peers.


Why would I have my newborn or young child adjusted?

Gentle chiropractic adjustments may help remove nerve interference within the nervous system, which may help to restore normal function.

Can chiropractic help with colic and how?

Gentle chiropractic adjustments can play a role at reducing nerve interference and restore normal function of the digestive tract. This can help to support digestion and alleviate symptoms of colic.

How safe are adjustments on children?

Very safe! We often welcome children of all ages into our care.

How old were your children when they received their first adjustment?

Just three months old, and they’re regularly under care to this day-now, they are 35.

How often should my child be adjusted?

This is dependent on the health goals and needs of your child. We’re happy to discuss a tailored care plan for your family.
