Chiropractic and kids: Dr. Kimberly Maxwell is uniquely qualified to offer pediatric chiropractic care for children of all ages
Chiropractic is the leading complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) approach for children. A young spine usually develops perfectly by the end of a pregnancy, but the trip through the birth canal or the birthing process can cause problems; sometimes the baby’s position in utero results in pressure on delicate nerves. This condition is known as a subluxation.
Plus, early childhood problems such as colic, tonsillitis, sleep disruptions, repeated colds, and ear infections can be the result of undiagnosed birth traumas that have caused subluxations in your child’s nervous system and spine.
In addition, the falls a child takes when learning to walk or participating in sports can cause trauma to the lower spinal segments and to the pelvic sacroiliac joints. Or a sudden stop in the car – or any event where there is significant unsupported or excessive movement of the head and neck like tripping, falling off of a step, sports impacts – can result in subluxations of the child’s spine. This can also be neurologically linked to asthma, allergies, ADD/ADHD – even autism in some cases.
When to schedule your child’s checkup…
Children of all ages – from babies to teenagers − can benefit from chiropractic care provided by a trained pediatric chiropractor such as Dr. Kimberly Maxwell. Chiropractic adjustments in children help ensure a child’s proper growth and development. Kids have stronger immunity and improved performance when their small injuries are cared for – before they build patterns of stress on the nerves and joints that, later, impact their nerve and spinal health as adults. Early intervention can result in fewer sick days, better attendance at school, and lower healthcare expenses.
Pediatric chiropractic care is a safe solution at birth and beyond.
Parents are beginning to seek more natural options to the negative impacts of drug intervention and possibly harmful procedures for their child’s healthcare. As Dr. Kimberly Maxwell attests, the chiropractic approach can offer safe solutions to improve a child’s ability to function optimally from infancy into adulthood.
Doctors of chiropractic have been caring for children for well over 100 years. There are countless published studies conducted by world-class researcher organizations that prove both the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic for infants and children. Continued research builds on the success of chiropractic care for childhood illnesses and problems. For parents and children alike, a key benefit of chiropractic care is a focus on wellness coaching – and the absence of harmful procedures, shots, and medications that may result in adverse side effects.

“My four-month old baby was crying six hours a day. She was unable to eat without pulling away and choking on her milk. Pediatricians told me she had acid reflux and started her on two prescription medications, but they did not help. Since starting care with Dr. Kimberly Maxwell, her crying has decreased 90%, and she is now able to drink her milk without pulling off! I have started care with Dr. Maxwell, as well as my son, husband, and sister.”– Patricia
