Keeping Kids Healthy – Care from Infancy to High School

Chiropractic care for babies, children, and teens is a way to keep their bodies healthy and comfortable. Chiropractors, who are like doctors for the bones and muscles, use gentle techniques to help with things like back pain, sports injuries, and even conditions like scoliosis. For babies, chiropractors can address common issues such as discomfort from birth-related stress or colic. As kids grow, chiropractic care helps ensure their spine and bones develop properly. Teens, especially those in high school, can benefit from chiropractic care if they have back pain from activities like sports or if they need support for their overall physical well-being.
Dr. Cornish is one of the few chiropractors in the area to achieve Diplomate Status in pediatrics and care for pregnant mothers.

When babies, children, and teens go to a chiropractor, it’s not scary at all! The chiropractor uses gentle touches and sometimes adjustments to help the bones and muscles feel better. For babies, this might mean easing discomfort from being born or calming colic. As kids get older, chiropractors can help with things like back pain from playing sports or sitting in school all day. For teenagers, especially those in high school, chiropractic care can support their overall health, keeping them active and feeling good. It’s like a special kind of care that helps everyone from babies to teens stay happy and healthy!
