Pediatric

The future of this country will be 100% dependent on the health of our future generations. Unfortunately the health of our children has DRASTICALLY diminished:

– 1 in 68 kids are diagnosed with autism
– 1 in 4 U.S. Teens have Pre-Diabetes
– Over 7 Million Kids in America have Asthma

We are combating this epidemic in a MAJOR way at Ames Family Chiropractic and Wellness! Our goal is proactive wellness care for children so they grow to become healthy adults who also have healthy children.

What Pediatric Age Groups Does Ames Family Chiropractic and Wellness Center See?

Our ideal circumstance is what we call Pre Conception Care. This is when parents
come to us at least 2 years before conceiving a child to first correct unidentified health issues with them in order to prevent those genes from being passed down. If this time has already passed our next line of defense is caring for an already pregnant mother where we can to the best of our abilities ensure they have the healthiest birth possible. We start care with children as young as an hour old through adulthood.

Is Chiropractic Care Safe for Kids?

Yes, the way in which our specially trained team at Ames Family Chiropractic and Wellness Center cares for children is completely safe. Even though Chiropractic care is only a portion of the services we offer this question is a normal concern as you will see hundreds of children being adjusted in our clinic in a days time. The adjustments we give children are NOT the same as the adjustments you would see being given to an adult. Techniques vary greatly along with intensity.

Why Do Children Need Chiropractic Care?

This question along with the safety of the adjustment comes up frequently. Children from birth are typically born with what are considered subluxations of the spine. The birth process is extremely physically rough on a newborn and depending on if there were any medical issues such as breach birth, c-section birth, suction or forcep use this can be made even worse. Into the toddler stage of a child they are often seen falling hundreds and hundreds of times while learning to walk. Each time a child falls and develops a subluxation the child creates nerve interference in their body and begins a path of what we call “The Perfect Storm” which is a life of DIS-ease and sickness.

What Conditions do we See Success with in Children?

Parents seek Ames Family Chiropractic and Wellness Center for hundreds of conditions in children and although they often see great success with our clinic we never seek nor do we treat any condition, disease, or illness. Our team is highly trained at treating the inbalances of the body and removing interference’s which often lead to these conditions such as:

– Autism
– ADD and ADHD
– Developmental Delays (walking, talking, crawling, etc..)
– Seizures
– Ear Infections and Colic
– Recurrent Sickness
– Hearing Issues
– Headaches and Migraines
– Allergies
– Scoliosis
– Digestive Issues

Our passion at Ames Family Chiropractic and Wellness Center is to see a generation grow up that is actually healthier than the previous.
