Is Pediatric Chiropractic Care Effective?

At Chiropractic First, we believe in evidence-based care: our methods and therapies are based upon decades of research, study, and experience. While we want our patients to understand that our chiropractic care for children should be seen as supplemental to their traditional, primary pediatric care, we also want them to know that our chiropractic program for kids has been proven to be both safe and effective.

Knowledge, Experience, and the Utmost Concern

We believe that we maximize the effectiveness of our pediatric chiropractic care through our treatment method, our experience, and our compassion for our patients. Since 1997, Dr. Todd Royse has dedicated his practice to developing the most successful and valuable methods of spinal adjustments and healthcare for kids – through his continuing education, his study of the newest research, and his interactions with thousands of patients.

Here are just a few recent scientific studies that have examined the effectiveness of pediatric chiropractic care:
  • A 2009 study published in Explore: The Journal of Science & Healing, found that both pediatric chiropractors and the parents of patients reported high levels of improvement regarding health complaints in children ages 0-18.
  • A 2013 study cited by the American Chiropractic Association found that chiropractic care significantly helped colicky infants reduce crying. This study was randomized, controlled, and blind.
  • A 1989 study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological and Therapeutics found that chiropractic adjustments helped the majority of adolescent participants reduce their ADHD symptoms.
  • A 1999 case study published in the Journal of Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics found that chiropractic care helped two infants with latching and nursing issues in the weeks after birth.

Again, this just a small sample of studies that have proven the effectiveness of pediatric chiropractic care. Speak with our doctor to learn more about studies regarding specific health issues or ailments that affect your child.
