Pediatric Chiropractic Care

From allergies and asthma to ADD and autism spectrum disorders, it seems that so many children are afflicted with these increasingly common disorders. While conventional medicine takes a drug-based approach, we believe that chiropractic care can effectively manage these and other conditions, naturally.

Improving Kids’ Health and Vitality

We love caring for children at Empower Life Chiropractic because it’s our desire to see them experience optimal health and wellness through natural care. Your child’s visit will be extremely thorough. Dr. Younis, who is working toward certification from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), will talk to moms about their child’s birth and delivery and what kind of stress the baby may have gone through during the birth process. He’ll also address any dietary concerns you have about your child as dietary habits play a significant role in what’s going on with your child.

Rest assured, that we will always put your children at ease when they come in. As a chiropractor for kids, Dr. Younis will engage and interact with his young patients, and will often play with them to help them feel comfortable being in the office. We have a kids’ area complete with toys and a blackboard for them to write on. Infants and kids get adjusted differently than adults. Dr. Younis uses the MC2 Technique on children. This adjustment is highly gentle and only uses finger-point pressure.

A Success Story: A couple with a young son with Asperger’s Syndrome sought our help for their son’s condition. Over the past two years of the child being under chiropractic care, he’s become much more engaging and interactive.

Will my child need to be adjusted for their entire life?

We like to think that once children experience how great they can feel after getting chiropractic care, they will want to continue for life. The choice is always theirs.
What role does nutrition play in my child's health?

Just like exercise, diet plays a significant role in a child’s overall health. A healthy, clean diet free from GMOs, preservative and other additives, can go a long way toward helping your child stay well. If you would like to learn more about specific dietary recommendations, we request that you make a separate appointment with Dr. Younis, who will sit down with you and specifically address those concerns.
How do I get my child to be more compliant with nutrition?

While kids like snacks such as crackers, gummy bears and all the other stuff that’s not good for them, it’s a good idea to take an inventory of what you have in your cabinets at home. Find those foods that you know aren’t good for your children and slowly remove them. Then replace them with those clean, non-GMO foods that are healthy and better for your children. Though it’s not always an easy transition, eventually they will enjoy eating healthier and will likely feel better.
