Pediatric Chiropractic in Chattanooga

Baby holding fingerAt TonalSpine Chiropractic, we prioritize the health of your child from infancy through their teenage years. Our pediatric chiropractic services are specifically designed to aid in the proper development of your child’s nervous system, which is crucial during these formative years.

Nurturing Growth and Development

The nervous system develops rapidly during childhood, integrating every new experience. Children’s nervous systems are highly receptive—developing almost 50% in the first year alone—based on their interactions and experiences.

In today’s digital age, excessive screen time and reduced physical activity can lead to “defense physiology,” where resources are diverted from critical and creative thinking to more primitive responses. Our chiropractic care helps redirect these resources to enhance higher brain functions, supporting better critical thinking, creativity, and social interactions.

A Tailored Approach for All Ages

From infants experiencing colic or sleep issues to teens navigating the emotional turmoil of adolescence, our approach adjusts to meet the specific needs of each age group. We offer gentle adjustments and techniques to ensure comfort and effectiveness, even for our youngest practice members.

Other benefits include

  • Stress Reduction—shifts the body from defense to growth mode, enhancing overall well-being
  • Developmental Support—encourages proper growth, better sleep, and a stronger immune system
  • Improved Behavior and Focus—helps children manage emotional challenges and enhances focus by reducing physical and emotional tension
  • Infants and Young Children—gentle adjustments to alleviate conditions like colic, improve sleep patterns, and bolster the immune system
  • Teenagers—focus on correcting posture issues like “text neck” and supporting emotional health through the challenging teen years

Creating a Comforting Space to Heal

We understand first visits can be intimidating for children. Our clinic has engaging and soothing tools to create a welcoming atmosphere. Parents are encouraged to be present during adjustments to provide comfort and support.For optimal results, young children should avoid sugar before appointments to minimize restlessness, and teens can reflect on how being calmer could enhance their daily social and personal experiences.

Addressing Parents’ Questions and Concerns

Parents often ask how chiropractic care can help their child focus better and be less emotionally reactive. We offer practical advice for both clinic and home to help children express and manage their emotions constructively.
