Pediatric Chiropractic
in Port Moody

Everyone, regardless of age or size, has a spine and a central nervous system. During the birthing process, the spine undergoes trauma. Many children don’t show any negative effects; the sooner your newborn is checked by a pediatric chiropractor the better.

Dr. Barone will check the alignment of your baby’s spine, pelvis and skull. By checking your child as early as possible, corrections can be made to prevent problems from becoming permanent. Our bodies know what’s needed for our health; a healthy nervous system is a key to better health for a lifetime.

What is Pediatric Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is natural healthcare for children. The main benefit of pediatric chiropractic is to protect the function of the child’s spine and nervous system. The best time to check the spine is when it is young, developing and healthy. Our goal is to ensure your child functions at their optimal level.

Problems can appear in the growth process at any time. They can be a result of trauma or injury, disease, nutritional deficiencies or hereditary. This is especially true while undergoing structural changes during the crawling and walking stage. Chiropractic care allows their bodies to do what they’re meant to – grow, thrive and meet their milestones.

Children running and playing games often put stress on their bodies. Constant falls can seem minor now, but add up to major problems in the future. Pediatric chiropractic adjusts the alignment of their spine and skeletal system to relieve pressure and stress on their nervous system. The right care now can stop the development of many of the problems we deal with all our lives.

Children love chiropractic! Once they realize it doesn’t hurt, they look forward to the appointments. Naturally energetic, children respond quickly and well to their adjustments. Regular chiropractic visits help give their bodies the best natural chance to prevent health problems, like back pain and headaches.

What to Expect

Pediatric chiropractic is completely effective for babies and children. We never ‘crack’ babies and the adjustment doesn’t hurt them. Dr. Barone uses SOT- Sacral Occipital Technique, an extremely gentle form of spinal alignment.

With older children, we use the same manual manipulation techniques but with a much lighter touch. There is absolutely no man-handling of your child; we don’t force any treatment on them. Every effort is made to put your child at ease and develop their trust. When they are comfortable, we do the adjustment.

Dr. Barone is certified in pediatric chiropractic care. He’s a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. Seeing your children thrive as a result of chiropractic care is our goal.
