Pediatric Chiropractic in Oklahoma City

Hands around childMany people don’t automatically think of chiropractic care for children, but the first subluxation (spinal misalignment) most of us experience is from the trauma of being born. When the doctor pulls and twists a baby’s head, subluxations in the delicate bones of the neck can pinch nerves and cause a wide variety of problems. In fact, some research indicates that Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) may be connected to twisting of the brain stem during the birth process.

Chiropractors locate these areas of misalignment and design gentle care plans to restore optimal alignment and nervous system function.

Decades of Experience

At Chiaf Chiropractic Clinic, our chiropractor Dr. Chiaf has 40 years’ experience helping our littlest patients feel and function their best through safe, gentle adjustments. Infants and children respond very quickly to chiropractic care because they don’t have years of accumulated stress stored in their spines and nervous systems.

Dr. Chiaf takes his time to build rapport with kiddos, letting them get accustomed to our office and equipment before adjusting them. For infants, he typically uses manual techniques that are incredibly gentle—about the same pressure you’d use to check a tomato for ripeness. For older kids, he’ll usually use the Activator®, a handheld adjusting instrument. He’ll let the kids hold it and see how it works so they’re not nervous when he begins their adjustment.

Most kids feel so much better after their first adjustment that any nervousness disappears and they can’t wait to come back again!

Conditions We Help With

Some of the common issues we help babies with include:

  • Colic
  • Constipation
  • Development
  • Ear infections
  • Latching/eating difficulties
  • Sleep problems

When we clear out subluxations, your baby’s nervous system can function better. And when the nervous system functions as it should, other systems of the body follow suit—meaning their overall health and immune function can improve as well.

For older kids, periodic checkups and adjustments can help with things like minor playground or sports injuries, sleep problems, focus/attention problems and better immunity.
