Pediatric Chiropractic in Cobourg

At Herron Family Chiropractic, we love taking care of you and all your loved ones. In our open, welcoming environment, you’ll know it’s a perfect place for your whole family to begin their journey to better health.

We’re a lifetime wellness practice, which means we take care of you so that you can enjoy a brighter future. That’s particularly important for babies and children, who are still developing in their brains and bodies.

With chiropractic, our goal is to ensure they don’t have to struggle with any challenging conditions that worsen with time, becoming unhealthy adults. We want to make sure they’re in the right place early on, so that they can have a fantastic childhood and hit all their milestones as they should.

Why Kids Should See a Chiropractor

Starting from birth, there is a high probability of spinal misalignment. That birthing process is traumatic for a baby, whose delicate, developing spine is pulled and tugged on. The most common pediatric conditions we see include

  • Breastfeeding issues
  • Colic
  • Constipation
  • Sleep issues
  • Fussiness
  • Not meeting expected milestones
  • Text neck
  • Torticollis

We’re increasingly seeing posture-related concerns in kids. Earlier and earlier in life, they’re glued to computers, phones and tablets. They’re not playing outside as much as they used to. As a result, their spines are becoming damaged at a young age. Chiropractic care is critical to ensure your child has current and continuing health.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does a baby adjustment look like?

It’s very gentle, like checking the ripeness of a tomato.

When is a good time to start adjusting my child?

Babies and kids can be adjusted at any time. We’ve had babies come in anywhere from a few days to a few weeks after birth. Dr. Peter has been adjusting Dr. Amy and his other two children their entire life, so they know and can see valuable results from early and consistent adjustments.

Is child chiropractic care safe?

It’s considered safe for children. Again, that’s because we use gentle adjusting methods.

Will adjustments hurt?

No, not at all.

Do you adjust children differently than adults?

Yes, we use very low force.

Getting Started

You’ll stay with us the entire time at your child’s appointments. When we need to assess them, we’ll let them play and stay relaxed, so there is nothing for them to feel nervous about. We’re not like your typical doctor’s office with a clinical atmosphere. Our office features toys and is a fun, enjoyable place where kids can play and be themselves.

When it’s time for the adjustment, there is no cracking or popping involved. We’re gentle with any patient, but even more so with our youngest patients. An adjustment for a baby uses the same pressure you’d need to check the ripeness of a tomato.
