We love to help children get a great head start on wellness! Just think how much better you would be doing if you had chiropractic at a younger age. We love to have kids in our office. We have a special room just for kids-decorated in a beach theme-because in the heart of this room is our "Whale-ness Table." Kids feel at ease in this fun room.
Why would kids need chiropractic care? Because they're kids! Problems can begin as early as birth-and continue as your child learns to walk, which includes falling-to later stages when they become acrobats-jumping off different things, crashing on bikes, mishaps on the monkey bars-all can give your child misalignments. These little misalignments may become big problems later in life. Dr. Carpenter has seen chiropractic help children with instances you may not have considered chiropractic for as well: bed-wetting, constipation, asthma, indigestion, ear infections, etc. Chiropractic is not about pain-it's about proper function of the body.
Dr. Carpenter treats your child as her own-what is more important than the health of your child? Dr. Carpenter also has resources available for any questions you have about vaccinations. We feel it is important to be as educated as possible when it comes to your child's health.
Dr. Carpenter has adjusted patients of all ages-from just a few days old-to 97 years young. Her gentle, yet effective alignment of the body is interactive with the patient, gentle enough for kids (they love us!), yet able to restore function and movement for the athlete, pregnant woman, or elderly. You are never too young or old to be adjusted.

-Whether or not to vaccinate is a huge question parents are asking themselves today. There has been a lot of recent media coverage on the adverse reactions of vaccines and the possible associated side effects of SIDS and Autism. You can always vaccinate, but you can never UNvaccinate. Some parents are choosing to wait until the child is older, when the blood brain barrier has had a chance to form. Some parents are opting for some, but not all, vaccinations. And more and more are choosing not to vaccinate at all. Jenny McCarthy said it best-there should not be a one dose fits all system. We recommend that you ask questions and make an educated, informed choice.
