Why Would a Child Need Chiropractic Care?

Processed with VSCO with a4 preset

If you have visited Spoelstra Family Chiropractic or FOCUS, you may have noticed a LOT of kids!  While most people who come to our office for a consultation have been referred by a current practice member and know what to expect, occasionally someone may find us in a different way and may be surprised to see so many children.  Because of that, every once in a while, I get the question “why are you checking kids, Doc?”

Well, it’s simple! First of all, I LOVE kids!  I LOVE helping them achieve the best, healthiest, and fullest life possible!  Because of that, I have done extensive post-doctorate training in pediatric chiropractic care.  From cranial adjusting, the Webster technique for pregnant mothers, specific nutritional protocols to help heal the gastrointestinal system, to Neuro-deflective Retraining for children, I’m always learning and bringing that to my practice.

It is also my passion in practice to work with children with neurodevelopmental disabilities and I have created a specific program and training system to do just that.  This program is called FOCUS and its purpose is to help improve the expression of life for kids and adults who struggle with behavioral, learning, or developmental challenges. For more information on the program visit the FOCUS website or attend free community lecture or webinar.

It is important to help adults heal from their health challenges and symptoms by identifying and correcting the primary cause.  It is equally, if not more, important to assist our children in their healing and optimize their health. This is why Spoelstra Family Chiropractic and FOCUS is happy to have an office filled with kids!
