What Is An Adjustment Like For a Kid?

safeguard your child's healthWhen you think of a chiropractic adjustment, what comes to mind? Being twisted up like a pretzel? Being aggressively pushed on?

That’s nothing like what we do at Van Every Family Chiropractic Center.

If you’re thinking about bringing your kids to us, let us put your mind at ease: adjusting a child is incredibly gentle.

The Van Every Family Chiropractic Center Difference

We are primarily an instrument-based practice. That means we use a small, handheld tool to complete your adjustment. When it comes to infants, the pressure used is similar to what you’d need to check whether a tomato was ripe.

Babies usually sleep and smile right through their adjustment, like they know good things are happening.

When we use the instrument, only a soft tapping is needed to make a correction. There’s no twisting, cracking or popping necessary.

Nervous Kids Welcome!

Do you think your child will feel a little unsure of going to a new doctor’s office? We get it! We’ll make it fun for your kids, especially at the start when they seem apprehensive. We can evaluate and adjust them while they’re reading a book or playing with a toy.

Before long, we know your child will tell you when they need their “tap taps,” which is what most kids call their adjustments here. When your child is regularly adjusted, they’ll learn to be in tune with their health at a young age, which is exactly what we want to see.
