Pediatric Chiropractic
in South Austin

At Transform Austin Chiropractic, we specialize in pediatric chiropractic care! Chiropractic adjustments can change the trajectory of kids’ lives by preventing the accumulation of stress in the nervous system. The beneficial effects of this are far-reaching, impacting every facet of their lives as they grow and develop.

Safe and Gentle Enough for Newborns

She wants to ensure that their spine is healthy and aligned after the stress of the birth process. In fact, she adjusted both of her own kids within a few moments of birth!

Even in an “easy” delivery with no medical interventions, tremendous force is applied to the baby’s head and neck. Dr. Stephanie will locate and alleviate that stress before it alters nerve function and causes health problems.

Some common issues that chiropractic care for newborns and infants can help relieve are:

  • Fussiness
  • Colic
  • Nursing/latching difficulties
  • Excessive spitting up
  • Constipation
  • Sleeping difficulty

Chiropractic for Kids

As kids grow, regular chiropractic care can help with posture, regulating emotions, and adapting to all life throws at them. Dr. Stephanie wants to help kids develop the healthiest spine possible, because that sets the tone for the rest of their lives.

Children are exposed to a myriad of stressors including multiple vaccinations, carrying heavy backpacks, bullying, overuse of electronic devices, and processed and GMO foods, to name but a few. Regular chiropractic care can remove stored tension from the spine and nervous system, helping kids’ bodies remain resilient and vibrant and allowing them to be more connected with themselves. Well-adjusted kids tend to make healthy and responsible choices, and this continues throughout life.

  • Ear infections

Putting Kids and Parents at Ease

Dr. Stephanie loves caring for kids, and she plays with them and gets down to their level to put them at ease. Our technique is gentle, with no popping or cracking, and it doesn’t hurt at all. Kids usually aren’t resistant to adjustments and most of them love it and look forward to their visits!

Parents often ask why kids need to get adjusted if they don’t have back pain. We explain that it’s like going to the dentist: you don’t know if you have a cavity or problem in a tooth until the dentist checks. In the same way, you don’t know what’s going on in your child’s nervous system until we check. Our goal is to catch the interferences before they create problems with attention, thinking, adaptability or comfort. We want to prevent the development of health issues by keeping the nervous system functioning optimally.
