As the infant grows, learning to hold up the head, sit, crawl and walk are all activities that affect spinal alignment and are important times to have a child checked by a Doctor of Chiropractic. With chiropractic care, you will notice sometimes immediate changes in your child’s behavior for the better when they are treated. Dr. Brenda Fortin loves working with children as a chiropractor specializing in pediatric chiropractic care, and has two children of her own.
We’d had some parents who “have tried everything” before coming to us as a referral from someone they knew and often times tell us after seeing the improvement that they wish they had come in sooner.
Common childhood disorders can also sometimes indicate a spinal problem. Persistent earaches, sore throats, colic, headaches, bed-wetting, and growing pains are but some of the more common problems for which parents bring their children to the chiropractor.
Call today 763-478-3978 if you have any questions, to make an appointment or schedule a free consultation with Dr. Fortin to see if chiropractic is right for your child. We are an honest, family friendly clinic and would love to help your family through our pediatric chiropractic care.
