Macomb County Chiropractor Discusses Pediatric Chiropractic

Hello, I’m Doctor Rose Minkiewicz. I’m one of the chiropractors here at Total Health Systems, located in Macomb County and I’m going to be discussing today pediatric chiropractic. More and more people than ever, are using chiropractic for their neck and back pain or other symptoms and things that they might have. A lot of my patients, which I’m truly shocked, have no idea that children should be getting adjusted. Even if they don’t have a specific condition or any kind of symptom or pain, we really recommend that everybody get their spine checked from the time they’re born.

Usually a lot of times now when we do get children, it is for a specific complaint. We see a lot of constipation, gas, bloating, and reflux type symptoms. Where the parents have gone to pediatricians, and they’ve tried different medications, either laxatives for the constipation or they’ve tried acid reducers for the reflux, things like that. But they don’t really seem to find any progress with that. So they bring their children in eventually to see us and we do examine them. If we find that they have spinal misalignments that are contributing to the dysfunction that they’re having, then we do adjust them. We use low force adjusting techniques, so it’s painless to the child. They usually don’t even really know what we’re doing to them, and it usually helps resolve their problem. We also talk about diet recommendations, and different things like that, that can help with some of the symptoms depending on what the problems is.

Again, as I mentioned earlier, even if they’re not having symptoms, we want them to come in and get their spine checked. My children have been adjusted since they were within a week old. I think my daughter was about four-days-old and my son was about seven-days-old, and they’ve been getting adjusted twice a month since they were born. They’ve never had a major illness. They’ve never even had an ear infection, or any kind of a sickness or problem to speak of, but they come to me if they have a bump or a bruise or a fall playing or anything like that. They run right up and fight to get on the table and say “mom please check my spine”, and make sure that I do it well. We really encourage that, the sooner they start, the sooner they get used to it. And they know when, if something does go wrong in their body, they’ll be able to feel the difference between their normal and not normal, so they know to get their spine checked and ask to be evaluated.

So basically whether your child has an illness or condition, we urge you to bring them in to one of the chiropractors at any of our three clinics in Macomb County and have their spines checked for any misalignments that could cause dysfunctions or problems in the future. Thank you.
