Here at Clark’s Family Chiropractic, we specialize in chiropractic care for children. We are proud to serve children in Laporte, IN and the surrounding communities.

Chiropractic care is not just for adults. In fact, there are more and more parents seeing the many benefits of their children seeing a chiropractor every single day. Some of the benefits are improved sleep, improved behavior and attitude, and improved immune system function.

Children encounter many physical stresses in their life that you may not realize. These stresses can cause your child’s spine to have issues in growth and development.

The first thing that we will do when you see us is take a thorough history of your child’s health. You are able to explain to us any complaints that you or your child may have. We will then do a complete chiropractic examination of your child’s spine. We want to ensure that all areas are working and functioning correctly.

Our entire staff enjoys seeing children in our practice and will always create a positive experience for them. We know that starting chiropractic care while young can create wonderful benefits and ensure that your child grows up as healthy as possible. Many issues you experience when you are older were likely caused when you were younger. We are here to correct any issues that may be occurring. We are always here to answer any of your questions or concerns.

Kid Stuff

Children can also benefit from Chiropractic care. They’re very physically active and experience many blows and falls from their activities and daily living. Sports and playing outside can cause injuries leading to symptoms or discomfort to your child but without any indication from them alerting you something is hurting.

Chiropractors that are trained to adjust children are able to detect spinal misalignments. They can always adapt the chiropractic technique and pressure they use when adjusting a child. Usually, kids bounce back right after an adjustment because their body is not mature enough to hold onto such.

Newborn Adjusting

Dr. Sandee uses gentle forces of gravity and her fingers as a fulcrum. This helps the body correct its subluxation. Knowing exactly where and when to adjust children is what makes Chiropractors so beneficial. Many parents say they see huge improvements in the well-being of their child after the first adjustment.
