Pediatric Chiropractic in Clear Lake

child adjusting patientAt North Shore Chiropractic, we want to help your child get off to a healthy start in life by ensuring their spine and nervous system are working properly. Misalignments in the spine can cause interference in the flow of communication between the brain and body by way of the nervous system (called subluxations).

The birth process is often the cause of a person’s first subluxation—even in a natural delivery with no medical interventions, the amount of pressure exerted on a baby’s delicate spine and skull can result in misalignments that may affect their growth, development, and health.

Safe & Gentle Chiropractic to Help Kids of All Ages

Dr. Lane Krause loves helping newborns establish a healthy nervous system through our gentle approach to care. Using the Gonstead Technique, he relies on careful analysis of a child’s spine and nerve function to determine where and how to adjust—there is no guesswork! He offers safe and gentle adjustments for newborns and kids of all ages.

Although we typically X-ray teens and adults, we do not X-ray infants or young children.

What Are Some Benefits of Care?

A child’s only job is to grow and develop, and they do that by interacting with their environment. For development to occur optimally, the nervous system has to be able to process input appropriately. By ensuring their nervous system is free of interference, children may be able to develop with greater ease.

Some conditions that chiropractic may help with in babies are

  • Colic
  • Constipation & Diarrhea
  • Latching problems
  • Sleep problems
  • Spitting up

A Young Practice Member Success Story

We recently saw a one-month-old who was losing weight because she was unable to latch and nurse properly. Her parents had taken her to many specialists with no improvement. Desperate, her mother brought her to us, and after a few adjustments, the baby was latching, eating, and gaining weight—life-changing results for the baby and the whole family.
