Pediatric Chiropractic

Every child has more than their fair share of slips, trips and falls. Today, they’re texting and staring down at a device or playing video games for hours. As a result, we’re seeing an increase in spine-related problems. At Ithaca Family Chiropractic, our chiropractors are passionate about providing care early in life.

Some of the many common issues we help kids with include

  • Colic
  • Digestive troubles
  • Difficulty walking
  • Pain
  • Headaches
  • Focus issues
  • Neck and back pain

Young Athletes Are Welcome

Children are starting to play sports earlier and earlier in life. As a result, your child may experience some health concerns. Pushing yourself at a young age can lead to incredible outcomes, but it can also be troublesome if your body isn’t kept in top shape. Chiropractic can help your child prevent chronic pain later in life.

Getting Started

We have special paperwork to fill out for our pediatric patients. You can print it out and fill these forms in beforehand, or arrive 15 minutes before your child’s appointment to complete the paperwork.

When you arrive, we’ll get your insurance information, then do a brief history and exam with your child. We can take digital X-rays on-site if needed. Your child will receive an adjustment on their first visit. At the next visit, we’ll go over our recommendations and your insurance coverage. Follow-ups are quicker, taking just 10-15 minutes.

Did You Know?

Between the ages of 2-5, it is estimated that children fall over 2000-5000 times. By age 10, the average child had fallen 10000 times. Often, these falls cause spinal misalignments that may later manifest as health concerns.
