Pediatric Chiropractic in Sedalia

A child’s journey through growth and development is a crucial time that shapes their overall well-being. We are dedicated to providing pediatric chiropractic care that’s gentle, effective, and tailored to each child’s unique needs.

At Longie Chiropractic, we believe every child deserves a strong foundation for a healthy life. By providing pediatric chiropractic care, we offer an opportunity for children to thrive physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Nurturing Healthy Spines From the Start

An old Chinese saying goes, “As a twig is bent, so shall the tree grow.” By addressing spinal misalignments early on, we help children develop a healthy spine, which lays a foundation for optimal growth and well-being.

The initial birth process and subsequent childhood adventures can sometimes stress a child’s delicate spine. It’s a fact that children fall numerous times, with an average of up to 1500 falls before they reach the age of five.

Falls often occur while they learn to walk, leading to misalignments. However, with early chiropractic care, we help ensure children have straighter and healthier spines throughout their lives.

Dr. Rick has treated children as young as two days old and patients as old as 96, proving chiropractic care is beneficial at every stage of life.

A Gentle Touch: Special Techniques for Children

When bringing a child for their first pediatric visit at our practice, we take the time to consult with the parents and child to address any concerns or specific issues they may be experiencing. Our goal is to understand the child’s needs, whether ear congestion, colic, constipation, or other problems.

Care for children requires a different approach than adults. Our doctor uses a light-touch technique specifically designed for pediatric adjustments. This gentle technique ensures the well-being and comfort of the child throughout their treatment.

If a child is nervous about their adjustment, we connect with them on their level, offering a reassuring and calming environment. For younger children, parents are often encouraged to hold the child during the adjustment, providing comfort and security throughout the process.
