How Chiropractic Care Helps with Child Development

Chiropractic for kids helps ease many growing pains

Dr. Nelson talks with KOLO Channel 8’s Mom’s Everyday about how chiropractic care can helps promote optimal growth and development in children, from infancy through puberty. Chiropractic for kids is less about adjustments and more about promoting a healthy nervous system and alignment of the musculoskeletal system. It can help with a whole host of issues from latching to bed wetting.

They have been designated with the CACCP credentials and proudly remain a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA).
