At Unity Chiropractic and Wellness Center, Dr. Kathy Cantwell offers a gentle chiropractic approach ideal for pediatric care. Although chiropractic care for children actually starts before their born, which you can learn about on our pregnancy page, chiropractic treatment is particularly important and effective in children. Chiropractic adjustments boost the nervous system which is the body's self-healing system, in fact, parents of children who are treated notice the following benefits: better sleep, improved attitude and behavior, and better immune system function.
When your child visits us for regular adjustments, he or she will experience good posture, natural pain relief, a robust nervous system response, and a happy mental disposition. Alongside your adjustment, Dr. Kathy can suggest nutrition and lifestyle habits to keep the whole family healthy. If you are ready to try chiropractic care for children, we are excited to begin working together!
