Keeping your children healthy

Does your child get sick too much?

 Have you been prescribed too many medications and that’s worrying you?

Does your friend take her children to the chiropractor to stay healthy but you don’t really understand why? 

We know that some of the most stressful decisions you make have to do with you children’s health, because we’re parents too. 

The first step when considering chiropractic for your child is to make an appointment to chat with one of our doctors. The doctor can do a simple checkup for your child and answer all of your questions.

We understand that your child doesn’t know us yet, and we will do all we can to ensure your they feel comfortable. Dr. Shulman has been known to sing the Spiderman theme song to entertain patients and Dr. Neely’s airplane rides are legendary. We want your child (and you) to look forward to their visits

How chiropractic keeps your children healthy:

All children get runny noses, coughs etc. However, some children seem to “catch” everything and when they do it seems to turn into an ear infection, chest infection or worse. Why do some children go through daycare without constant sickness and medication free yet others seem to be chronically getting sick? Their immune systems aren’t functioning at as high a level, leaving them more vulnerable to sickness. 

A healthy immune system means that your child is able to fight off the everyday germs they are surrounded with and stays healthy more often. And of course, a healthy spine ensures he or she will grow optimally.

Chiropractors who care for children use very specific, gentle techniques. At Pure-Health we feel grateful to care for many children. In fact, the doctor’s own children (who aren’t really children anymore) have been adjusted since birth.

Parents are increasingly asking, when handed a prescription for a child’s recurrent problem, “Is this really all I can do for my child? Isn’t there a safer option? How can I restore health?”

Chiropractic care enhances the body’s ability to heal and stay healthy…whether that body is 2 years old or 92.
