As the twig bends, so the tree grows...
Children aren't much different. Imbalances while they are small, just don't go away. They become imbalances as they grow. Imbalances can lead to poor biomechanics, poor balance and overall improper use and increased risk of injury.
Dr. Eileen recommends that children be evaluated after birth and as they reach each new milestone. Thus if there is a problem, it can be found and corrected before it becomes symptomatic.
Pediatric chiropractic care is always gentle and geared towards the needs of your child. Dr. Eileen modifies her adjusting procedures to fit a child’s size, weight and stage of spinal development.
Chiropractic care for the child is much different than that for the adult. The pressure that is applied is equal to that of a dime lying on you.
Dr. Eileen, the only International Chiropractic Association board certified pediatric chiropractor in New Haven county and one of less than 12 in the state, is also a mom to 4 kids who have been recieving regular chiropractic adjustments since birth. She understands both professionally and personally a parent's desire to have both happy and healthy children.
Dr. Eileen is a member of the International Chiropractic Association Pediatric council adn has been published in the Journal of Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics.
Dr. Eileen will work with your child's other healthcare providers to ensure that your child does get the aximum benefits possible from his/her treatments.
