Pediatric Chiropractic Care in Cheyenne

Giving your child the best opportunity to enjoy optimal health is by starting safe and gentle chiropractic care at birth. Dr. Heather and Dr. Marley reinforce chiropractic’s track record for safety: “We always joke that a lot of people pay more in car insurance than we pay in malpractice insurance. Chiropractic care is so safe that our malpractice insurance is super low.”

Their gentle touch combined with their certifications in pediatrics make them highly qualified chiropractors to care for your child.

Benefits for Children

A better functioning nervous system is the number-one benefit children can receive from getting chiropractic care. Children show results faster than adults. Because they have less cumulative damage, they also tend to heal a lot faster. Dr. Heather and Dr. Marley love helping children enjoy greater health. “It’s fun working with them and just seeing the miracles,” she says.

Why Children Should See a Chiropractor

Birth trauma is huge and could cause a child to exhibit symptoms from birth or shortly after. That’s why it’s a good idea to get their nerve system checked. Parents often bring their children in with the following symptoms:

  • Bed-wetting
  • Colic
  • Ear infections
  • Gas pains
  • Latching difficulties
  • Pinkeye
  • Sleeplessness

Many of these ailments clear up, whether as little as one or a series of adjustments have been given.

Parents can rest assured that the adjustments Dr. Heather and Dr. Marley perform on children are
very gentle. They use just enough pressure to put a finger through a very ripe tomato. These
adjustments are nothing like an adult adjustment.

Kid-friendly Care

“Recently I was adjusting a first-time 4-year-old child. His mom was taking pictures and he was laughing and smiling,” says Dr. Heather. Dr. Heather and Dr. Marley note that children don’t feel afraid when they come in.

“We don’t wear white coats or stethoscopes. We are an inviting practice where parents and kids feel comfortable getting adjusted by us. We display confidence when caring for them.”

Livin’ Well Family Chiropractic caters to children by providing a very loving, low-key, almost homey environment complete with toys to occupy kids during their visit. Most kids love getting chiropractic care in the comfortable environment.

Milestone and Other Checkups

To ensure kids enjoy optimal overall health, Dr. Heather and Dr. Marley like to check the spines of children once they reach the following major milestones:

  • Holding up their head
  • Sitting
  • Crawling
  • Walking

These milestone checkups usually take place at infancy, three months, nine months and a year. For wellness checkups, young patients may be seen once a month. If they are having symptoms, however, the doctors would start by seeing them at least once a week. Older children they see regularly may have symptoms such as chronic ear infections, chronic adenoid problems and bed-wetting.

Techniques and MyoVision

Dr. Heather and Dr. Marley use techniques such as Gonstead and Palmer Package on children, using very low force —enough pressure to put a finger through a very ripe tomato. They also use the MyoVision scan, an objective way to measure changes to the body. A scan is done before chiropractic care. Then after a course of care, a post examination is completed with the same equipment to see how change has been made.
