Pediatric Chiropractic Care in Columbus

We Love Kids

Pediatric Chiropractic Care in ColumbusPediatric Chiropractor Dr. Wurts gets down to the level of your child, sometimes literally. He relates to them, and takes the time to make the experience fun and understandable. Most kids look forward to their adjustments and can’t wait to climb up on the table.

We encourage our parents to trust their intuitive sense about their children. If your child has chronic tummy problems, or your baby cries all night, every night, moms usually sense that something is wrong. We also pay attention to these warning signs and collaborate with you in helping to stop these patterns before they become chronic problems.

A Head Start with Chiropractic

Because the nervous system controls all functions in the body, it’s important for children as young as a day old to get off to a great start in life. According to studies, 80% of all normal births include some damage to the upper neck of the baby that affects their nervous system. This is significant since 85% of brain development will occur in the first two years of life and much of that depends on proper signals from the nervous system. That’s why it’s vital to have children checked as soon as possible.

As the Twig Is Bent, so Grows the Tree

This is an old saying, but a saying that has endured because of the truth it reveals. Parents often ask when a child should begin chiropractic care, and our standard answer is, “while still in the womb.” This means that expecting mothers do both themselves and their child a favor when they make gentle chiropractic care a part of their pregnancy plan.

During the first nine months of pregnancy, the baby begins its development, and mispositioning in the womb and the chronic fetal constriction may have long-range effects on the health of the child. Add to that a traumatic birth experience for the newborn that creates spinal subluxations (misalignments) and postural deficiencies, and chiropractic care becomes even more important for future child development.

Common Conditions That Respond Well to Pediatric Chiropractic

We can tell you with confidence that children under chiropractic care have nervous systems that are finely tuned and better adapted for the stress in life. Our adjustments are safe and gentle. Dr Wurts has had babies fall asleep during their adjustment and children are often eager to be adjusted! Dr. Wurts can and has helped children with the following conditions:

  • ADD (Attention Deficient Disorders)
  • Asthma
  • Acid reflux, spitting up
  • Behavior disorders and issues
  • Colic
  • Constipation
  • Ear infections
  • Failure to thrive
  • Eating difficulties
  • Poor concentration
  • Sleep difficulties

Care is always tailored to the size, condition and comfort level of our pediatric patients. For newborns and babies, the pressure of the spinal adjustment is like the mild pressure one would exert to check the ripeness of a tomato. As the child grows, Dr. Wurts uses the table and other devices to assist him that make it both comfortable for the child and reassuring to the parents.
