Kids Chiropractic in Sterling Heights

What is Pediatric Chiropractic?

Pediatric chiropractic is gentle treatment designed specifically for the unique needs of children, babies and newborns. As the nervous system controls all function in the body, it’s important for children to get a good start in life by optimizing that function, starting with the sometimes negative effects of the birth process itself, including:

  • The effects on the skull and neck during forceps delivery
  • Mal-presentation of the baby in the birth canal
  • The effects of suction devices on the soft skull of the infant
  • Pulling, tugging and twisting of the vulnerable neck of the newborn
  • Caesarian section

Research shows that 80% of all normal births include some damage to the upper neck of the baby. This is why it’s vital to have children checked as soon as possible to avoid problems that often come up later in life, including learning disabilities, allergies and ADHD. Babies that are adjusted regularly also avoid distressing issues such as feeding problems, colic, ear infections and seizures.

Why Do You Treat So Many Children?

Two of her sisters were born with special needs and so she always had a special place in her heart for children with those challenges as well. Dr. Sibyl is certified in the Webster Prenatal Technique and a supporting member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. It is her mission to provide high quality, life-changing chiropractic care to families and children in the community.

The ADHD Epidemic

More and more children today are being diagnosed with ADHD, and parents are being forced to rely on drugs to help their children fit into social and learning environments. Dr. Bence holds certification in the treatment of ADHD, and has had many successful outcomes with this epidemic issue.

One of our practice members was an 8-year old little boy, referred by his medical doctor. When the child first came to see us, he sat in a chair with his head down, unmoving. He was unable to concentrate or listen to instructions, and completely unable to function in school. After only a few adjustments, his mom noticed that he seemed to be calmer and started to do his homework. Before long, our ADHD protocols began to really make a difference in this child’s life, and he was able to completely re-integrate into his school and community environment.

Children respond quickly and efficiently to our gentle adjustment protocols. If your child is suffering from any physical or emotional issues, we may be able to help. Why not give chiropractic a try? Contact us today and ask about our new patient special!
