Pediatric Chiropractic Care

It’s estimated that nearly 80-90% of all babies experience some form of spinal trauma during birth that can trigger neurological or immune system dysfunction.

As your partner in health, we know that you want the best for your child to help them grow healthy and strong—and so do we.

At Elite Chiropractic we’re proud to offer pediatric chiropractic care for children of all ages—from infants to teens and everyone in between. Through chiropractic care, we can remove nervous system disturbances and reduce the long-term effects of any micro-traumas your child may have experienced.

The best part? There’s never any surgery or drugs required—just effective, all-natural care plans unique to your child’s needs.


When you bring your child in for a visit, we’ll start by getting to know your health history as well as theirs. We want to know about your pregnancy and delivery so we can determine if they may have experienced any micro-traumas. At the end of the day, we want to dive deep to uncover what’s really going on in their nervous system so that we can help them function exactly as they were meant to.

Next, we’ll scan their spine in our Subluxation Station, which gives us an inside look to where exactly the spinal stress is occurring. Then, we are able to devise a personalized plan-of-action for each patient.

Adjustments for children are very gentle. For infants and toddlers, the pressure used in an adjustment is no greater than the gentle touch you’d use to check the ripeness of a tomato—in some cases, Dr. Scott may only use his pinky to achieve the desired results, and we are happy to show mom or dad exactly how it feels to help put you at ease. In some cases, children don’t even know they’re being adjusted, so we’re able to take care of them while they play with toys.

We’ve worked with children of all ages and walks of life, and are happy to hear reports of incredible benefits after experiencing care with us.

Some parents have told us that they’ve seen improvements when it comes to:

  • Colic
  • Sleeping
  • Focus
  • Sensory disorders
  • Speech delays
  • Quicker recovery from injuries
  • Ear infections

  • Digestion
  • Headaches
  • Anxiety
  • Improved athletic performance (balance, flexibility, etc)
  • And more


While you might see some of the above conditions as “common childhood experiences”, we’d like to point something out—just because something is ‘common’ doesn’t mean it should be ‘normal’. With chiropractic care, our focus is on clearing up common disturbances that happen in children and allowing them to express their truest health.

Are you certified to offer chiropractic care for children?

Dr. Scott is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, the leading association for chiropractic family wellness care, including children. Dr. Scott has attended many extra classes and seminars specific to chiropractic care for children, and has experience working with kids of all ages.

When should I have my child checked by a chiropractor?

The best time to have your child checked by a chiropractor is right after birth—and the second-best time is now! There’s no right or wrong answer when it comes to whether or not your child has had chiropractic care in the past. Our practice is a judgment-free zone, we’re simply here to help them express their best health. Whether your child is a newborn or 17, we look forward to helping them experience their best health possible.

How long will my child need to be adjusted?

Our care is focused on keeping your child well for life. Because the needs of each patient are different, care plans will differ. However, we promise to do our best to bring your child into wellness as quickly as possible, and will recommend care plans based on their specific needs.
