Pediatric Chiropractic Care in Vicksburg

Most kids have not been on the planet long enough to have developed chronic problems that we see in adults. For kids, they tend to respond and do better with chiropractic than most adults. They heal faster and once they’re stable, you just have to watch them to ensure they’re maintaining a healthy nervous system. It’s a lot easier to grow a healthy kid than to try to wait and fix a damaged adult. That’s why at Morton Family Chiropractic, we love helping children.

A Natural Way to Keep Your Kids Healthy

Child in superhero capeWe believe that chiropractic is the best way to keep children healthy. A variety of common childhood conditions can be avoided or helped with regular chiropractic care:

  • ADD
  • Allergies and sinus problems
  • Colic
  • Digestive issues
  • Ear infections

What to Expect at the First Visit

If your child is old enough, pediatric chiropractor Dr. Morton will ask them some questions about health concerns they’re experiencing. For younger children, a parent can provide the answers. An examination will be performed during this appointment. If your child hasn’t sustained a traumatic injury, we will not take X-rays.

After he has all the information necessary Dr. Morton will create a care plan for your child. At our practice, we don’t do extended care plans for children because they don’t need them. We find that maintenance visits once a week or once a month can be highly beneficial when it comes to keeping kids healthy.

One of Many Success Stories

Helping children experience relief from various health conditions is incredibly gratifying. One of our favorite success stories is of a child who suffered from debilitating migraine headaches twice a week since the age of 5. He missed a lot of school days and was unable to participate in summer activities due to his migraines. After only two months of care at our practice, the child no longer has headaches. He’s able to live a normal kid’s life which is priceless!

Do You Adjust Children the Same As Adults?

No! Rest assured that Dr. Morton uses low-force, highly specialized techniques with children. For children up to about age 10-12, he uses the Integrator™ instrument, which gets excellent results but is gentle. Because our adjustments are light-force, kids feel more comfortable. For older children who have stronger skeletons, Dr. Morton may use a manual adjustment.
