Baby getting adjustment

Pediatric Chiropractic in Morgantown

Adults need chiropractic care because our bodies experience stress, traumas and injuries that affect our nervous system’s ability to function correctly—and babies and children are no different! Being born is one of the most traumatic things we’ll ever experience as human beings. Chiropractic care can help restore proper nervous system function, so that your baby can get the best start possible in life.

At Coliseum Chiropractic, we see kids from moments after birth on up through the rest of their lives. Dr. Porter is passionate about helping set kids up for success from the beginning.

The Benefits of Pediatric Chiropractic Care

Babies, toddlers and older kids who get chiropractic care may experience relief from a variety of issues, including

  • Colic
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Digestive issues
  • Ear infections
  • Latching problems
  • Poor sleep
  • Torticollis

As kids start crawling and walking, they take many tumbles and run into things, all of which can affect their spine and nervous system. Older kids may suffer minor injuries on the playground or playing sports. All of these can contribute to bigger problems in the future if the underlying misalignments are not addressed.

Do You Adjust Kids Differently?

Depending on the age of your child, the exam may consist mostly of palpating the joints to check their position. We do not typically X-ray children. Since there are no X-rays to review, we adjust children at the first visit, using gentle techniques appropriate for their size and development.

Dr. Porter has a baby and a toddler himself, and he experiences the benefits of chiropractic in his own kids—and wants every family to experience those same benefits. Since he’s used to talking to little ones, he’s adept at building rapport with kids and helping them feel at ease with the process. He’ll take the time to ensure your child is comfortable and relaxed before moving forward with any adjustments.
