Chiropractic for Infants & Children
Help Your Child Stay Healthy
Being a kid can have its share of ups and downs. Many early misalignments originate from the birth process itself. Twisting and pulling as well as C-sections can put unnecessary stress and strain on their delicate necks and spines. As they grow and develop they also misalign when they try to sit up, crawl, stand, and walk. The average child falls over 1,000 times in the process of learning to walk. That’s enough to put the average adult in the hospital. Yet they are resilient and pliable so their misalignments go without much pain until they become adults.
During infancy and childhood many kids experience symptoms that can be caused by misalignments of the spinal bones. Dr. Hersch and Dr. Bogart are certified to deliver the best possible care to infants and children.

Here is a video demonstrating an adjustment for a child with cranial & spinal issues.
What does an adjustment for infants & children feel like?
For infants it feels like a massage, and very gentle pressure, about the same as you might use to test the ripeness of a tomato. We also use the activator or arthrostim devices, which gently tap bones back into their proper position. That simply feels like a gentle vibration.
As kids get older, the type and methods for adjusting may change depending on their needs. All the techniques we use are gentle, and feel great. If there is one that a patient prefers we will try to use that to get optimal results.
Dr. Bogart is certified and specializes in extremity adjusting which is perfect for kids as they engage in sports and get injured, or are looking to prevent injury. Everything from foot and ankle pain, to knee pain, shoulder pain, and neck or back pain can result from sport injuries, and we can help. Want to learn more? Check out www.ICPA4kids.com
