Children & Chiropractic Care

spinal problems seen in adults began as early as birth. Even so called 'natural' birthing methods can stress an infant's spine and developing nerve system. The resulting irritation to the nerve system caused by spinal and cranial misalignment can be the cause of many newborn health complaints. Colic, breathing problems, nursing difficulties, sleep disturbances, allergic reactions and chronic infections can often be traced to nerve system stress

.

Since significant spinal trauma can occur at birth, many parents have their newborns checked right away. As the infant grows, learning to hold up the head, sit, crawl and walk are all activities that affect spinal alignment and are important times to have your child checked by Dr. Jill Adepoju, or another chiropractor in your area.

As the child begins to participate in regular childhood activities like skating or riding a bike, small yet significant spinal misalignments (subluxations) may occur. If neglected, the injuries during this period of rapid growth may lead to more serious problems later in life. Subtle trauma throughout childhood will affect the future development of the spine leading to impaired nervous system function. Any interference to the vital nerve system will adversely affect the body's ability to function at its best.

One of the most common reason parents seek care for their child is trauma from an injury of some sort. These misalignments may or may not result in immediate pain or symptoms. Regular chiropractic checkups can identify potential spinal injury from these traumas, make the correction early in life and help avoid many of the health complaints seen later in adults. Proper spinal hygiene is an important key to better health.

.

Another sought out reason for care is the resolution of a particular symptom or condition. Parents seek care for conditions such as colic, ear infections, asthma, allergies and headaches (to name a few) because they have heard from other parents that chiropractic care can help.

It is important to understand that chiropractors do not treat conditions or diseases. The expertise of the chiropractor is in checking the child's spine for misalignments that impair nervous system function therefore affecting overall body function. The bones of the spine, the vertebrae, house and protect the spinal cord. The spinal cord is an extension of the brain and
carries information from the brain to the body parts and back to the brain again. Subluxations interfere with the nerves' ability to transmit this vital information.

The nerve system controls and coordinates the function of all the systems in the body: circulatory, respiratory, digestive, hormonal, eliminative and immune system. Any aspect of health may be impaired by nerve interference. The chiropractic adjustment restores nerve system function allowing the body the ability to express a greater state of health and well-being.

Dr. Jill will take a case history and perform a chiropractic exam to determine if spinal subluxations exist. Chiropractic adjusting procedures are modified to fit a child's size, weight, and unique spinal condition. They are both gentle and specific to the child's developing spinal
structures. Most parents report that their children enjoy their chiropractic adjustments and look forward to subsequent visits. They also report that their children experience a greater level of health while under regular chiropractic care.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Jill is the best chiropractor I have seen. She takes care of my aches and pains. She uses a form of adjusting that is never that twisting and aggressive kind of adjustment. I am a patient that tenses up with manual adjustments and I like the Dr. Jill offers another option for me. It is easy to get an appointment with Dr. Jill; she always makes time for me. The office staff is friendly and efficient. I was told by my father to always go to a chiropractor that takes x-rays, and Dr. Jill offers x-rays at her office and explained and showed the x-rays to me so I could understand what was going on with my body. I highly recommend Dr. Jill"

  • "I came in with a very stiff neck and after receiving treatment from Dr. Jill I am feeling much better and I have much more motion in my neck. Dr. Jill and the staff are very nice & friendly."
    Merdanisa D.
  • "After 2 years of hip, low back, groin & leg pain, my medical doctor suggested an MRI to be followed by back surgery. I was very reluctant. I saw an advertisement in the Times News about Dr. Jill Adepoju, and being a believer of Chiropractic Care, I made an appointment. After only a few treatments, I have minimal discomfort and great improvement in all areas, plus my sleepless nights have ended. Exercises are required & must faithfully be performed for optimal results. I'm still working with Dr. Jill and I am looking forward to being pain free & a new motivated person again. Thank you Dr. Jill & thank you to your great staff, it has been a pleasure to be in your care."
    Sincerely, Sharon A.
