Pediatric Chiropractic Care at Hodag Chiropractic
Many parents are unaware that chiropractic care is not limited to adults and can actually benefit infants and children. It is important to understand that even newborns can experience physical stress and strain, even in a birth without interventions. As children grow, they are prone to falling, bumping into things, and experiencing minor injuries. From playground accidents to sports-related mishaps, older children face their fair share of physical traumas as well.
Fortunately, routine chiropractic checkups and adjustments can help alleviate any nervous system interference caused by these incidents. By promoting optimal nervous system function, chiropractic care aids in the healing process of these minor issues, preventing them from progressing into more significant problems in the future.

Our Fun Approach
We want children to have a great experience with us. We’ll take the time to play with them on the floor with some toys, or do an exam while playing Simon Says, or play silly music to help them relax. We’ll adjust them wherever they’re most comfortable, even in the waiting room.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q:How does chiropractic help with ear infections?
A:If the first two vertebrae, C1 and C2, aren’t moving properly, they can put pressure on the Eustachian tubes, which may prevent the ears from draining. Adjusting those joints relieves the pressure, so the ears can drain and the infection can resolve.
Q:How does chiropractic help with autism or sensory disorders?
A:Think of the neural pathways of the body as a garden hose. If somebody steps on the hose, water can’t flow. If neural pathways are blocked by interference, communication between the brain and body can’t flow, which can cause sensory overload. When the nerve channels are clear, the child can process sensory input more effectively.
