Dr. Vander Sanden has a special passion for treating babies and children

The birth process may be one of the most traumatic events in our lives. Even so-called “natural” birthing methods can stress a still-developing spine. The resulting irritation to the nervous system can be the cause of many newborn health complaints. Colic, unexplained crying, poor appetite, breathing problems, and allergic reactions can often be traced to nervous system dysfunction caused by a malfunctioning spine.

Starting Life Right with Pediatric and Prenatal Chiropractic

Head support, followed by crawling, and a baby’s first few steps should be followed by chirpractic checkups. If neglected, the bumps and falls during this period of rapid growth may lead to serious spinal deformities later in life. This can set the stage for scoliosis, “growing pains”, and a weakened immune system response.

Chiropractic adjusting techniques are modified to fit a child’s size, weight, and unique spinal problem. Parents often report that their children seem healthier than other kids their age.

Two recent studies have shown that chiropractic care for children is safe, gets results and offers children unexpected benefits of immune system function, improved sleep, better behavior and moods.
