Thank you for asking about kids. I hear this question all the time. And the answer is YES. Absolutely. I have a friend who is a chiropractor in Northern California that has an exclusively pediatric practice. We also have patients of the week and month and our current patient is a 12-year-old girl that had a fairly severe scoliosis and unexplained constant diarrhea and headaches. She is 3 months into her correction and the scoliosis is 80 percent improved and the diarrhea and headaches have completely disappeared. It is actually good to correct postural problems while patients are young. They respond to care much more quickly than adults and can then grow with proper posture resulting in better spinal health for their lifetime. All chiropractors have been trained to work with patients of all ages, children and infants included. In my experience, not all chiropractors work with infants and toddlers as they don't see them very often while others like myself treat them all the time. I always recommend calling the office and talking with the front office staff. You should get a good idea quickly if that is the right office for you.
If you are in a more populated area, you can also search for chiropractors with a pediatrics diplomat. There are chiropractic clinics that specialize in pre/post pregnancy, infant care, and pediatric care. But don't worry about bringing him to a chiropractor. You should have a great experience.
