Pediatric Chiropractic in Royal Oak

It’s normal to have your baby’s eyes, heart or hearing checked. But what about their spine? You can give your baby the best chance at a healthy life with simple chiropractic checkups that can impact the rest of their life.

Preventing Common Childhood Problems

The spine is the gateway for communication between the brain and body. When your baby or child has proper spinal alignment, the brain and body can communicate at optimal levels. This allows for the greatest possible expression of health.

Misalignments, or subluxations in the spine, are caused by traumas, thoughts and toxins. Though it’s easy to see where adults experience the “Three Ts,” you might be wondering how a baby is exposed to these causes.


  • Birth injury (forceps, C-section, induction, vacuum extraction)
  • In utero constraint (breech positioning, posterior)
  • Physical injury (falls)
  • Physical stressors (extended back time, baby carriers)


  • Birth (separation, NICU)
  • In utero (mother’s emotions, conception)
  • Parenting (circumcision, attachment, cry it out)


  • Birth (antibiotics, steroids, Vitamin K)
  • Chemical stressors (cleaners, bath products, vaccines)
  • Food (formula/mother’s milk, introduction of foods)
  • In utero (ultrasounds, hormones, pharmaceuticals)

Noticing Any of These Issues?


Some of the problems we’ve seen respond remarkably well to chiropractic care include

  • Allergies
  • Colic
  • Difficulty breastfeeding
  • Ear, nose and throat conditions
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Foot inversion
  • Infections
  • Nervousness
  • Projectile vomiting

After completing testing using the Insight™ Subluxation Station, we can precisely determine which areas of your child’s body need attention. With the gentlest touch, we can restore balance and alignment to their system. The technique we utilize – known as KST – allows us to perform cranial-sacral work, and is ideal for newborns and children alike.

At Van Every Family Chiropractic Center, we’re proud to offer new parents an initial newborn examination free of charge if they’ve been coming to the office for their prenatal care.
