Pediatric Chiropractic Care

Pediatric Chiropractor Conyers GA

More parents are seeking pediatric chiropractic care for their children because research shows that many health challenges found in adults presented as early spinal problems from birth or childhood. Abode family wellness is a Conyers Chiropractor committed to the health and wellbeing of your family.

Why bring your child to a pediatric chiropractor?


When watching a child play or learn to walk you can easily see the strain put on a their growing bodies from the many bumps and falls they experience. Sadly, there is a great deal of truth to the old saying, “As the twig is bent, so grows the tree.” All of the childhood bumps, bruises, and falls can lead to problems in the spine and nervous system. For example, a small problem in a child’s spine that is left untreated can grow into a much bigger problem in adulthood. It is easier to grow a healthy child than to repair a damaged adult. Proactively treating children who have these spinal misalignments that have the potential to cause larger issues with pediatric chiropractic care can protect their health today and tomorrow.


When should you bring your child to a pediatric chiropractor?


At Abode Family Wellness, we encourage families to bring their infants to see us after birth. With the birth process becoming more and more of an intervening procedure, adding chiropractic care to your wellness plan for your child(ren) becomes even more crucial. We understand that the birth process itself can be stressful and sometimes traumatic on delicate parts of a baby’s body, especially their spine. We also encourage that parents continue chiropractic wellness care as their children continue to grow and develop.


Indicators of a spinal problem or misalignment in a child’s spine might include: fussiness, not eating well, ear infections, torticollis, allergies, asthma, sports injuries, breathing issues, delay in meeting milestones, headaches, ADD/ADHD, spitting up, colic, difficulty latching, constipation, back pain, neck pain, autism spectrum disorders, excessive crying, not sleeping well, tongue tie, lip tie, problems concentrating, or failure to thrive. 

How does chiropractic care help a child who is NOT sick?


The number one “illness” children face is accidents. You may not realize it, but children of all ages fall or put a lot of strain on their body as they grow - learning to walk or ride a bike, carrying a backpack, or jumping and running around. If untreated, spinal misalignments can cause serious health issues into adulthood, and can affect the body’s development.


Chiropractors remove these misalignments in the spine and other extremities using gentle and specific chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractors do not prescribe medicine, but may recommend nutritional changes, corrective exercise, or supplementation to help you maximize your family’s health.


Do all chiropractors treat children?


All chiropractic schools have pediatric courses that are required. Doctors of Chiropractic are also licensed in all 50 US states to provide chiropractic care to adults and children.


However, not all chiropractors take more than the minimum amount of courses required to receive their doctorate. Dr. Shawna has completed several postgraduate seminars, classes and certifications through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and specializes in working with children. Dr. Shawna is a well known Conyers Chiropractor specializing in Pediatric Chiropractic care.


Pediatric chiropractic adjustments are gentle and safe, and can help prevent future health challenges. Proper spinal alignment and nervous system function is vital to maintaining your child’s health. We would love to be a part of your family’s health journey!
