Pediatric Chiropractic in Plano and McKinney

Adjusting baby's backAt Farrar Family Chiropractic, we love helping babies feel better, eat better and sleep better so everyone in the family can get the rest they need and enjoy life with a new addition.

Studies have shown that most newborns have some type of spinal misalignment as a result of the birth process, whether a vaginal birth or a C-section. Our chiropractors in our Plano and McKinney clinics are specially trained in pediatric care and locate these areas of misalignment and correct them with gentle adjustments tailored to your child’s needs.

What We Help With

The most commonly injured area is the base of the skull, which can get jammed or twisted during delivery and lead to ear infections. Colicky babies are typically jammed up in part of their spine that prevents them from lying flat comfortably, making them very fussy. Similarly, babies who are constipated may have misalignments in specific areas of their spine, as well as tightness in their hips.

As toddlers, crawling, walking, running and jumping can leave kiddos physically exhausted, and the bumps they encounter along the way can cause misalignments. This continues throughout childhood, as kids begin carrying heavy backpacks, sitting at desks all day, and playing more physical sports.

All of this affects posture and spinal alignment and interferes with the normal function of the nervous system. Our goal for kids of all ages is to ensure that anything jammed or not moving correctly is relieved to ensure optimal nervous system function.

Our Gentle Approach

Children’s adjustments are specific to their needs, size, and condition. We typically use very light Activator® adjustments. If kids are nervous, we put them at ease by addressing their fears, letting them play with toys or the Activator, and just taking our time to help them feel comfortable and confident in what we’re doing. They’re excited about coming in once they experience an adjustment and realize it doesn’t hurt!
