At Ballas Chiropractic and Nutrition Centre, we love helping kids get off to the best start in life! Chiropractic care is gentle and safe for kids from minutes old until they aren’t kids anymore. Dr. Wipperman has over thirty-five years’ experience helping thousands of kids live better, healthier, happier lives.

Adjusting toddlerHow Does Chiropractic Care Help Kids?

Chiropractic care can help optimize kids’ nervous systems, so they can process all the sensory input they receive and develop appropriately. The birth process is one of the most traumatic things that happens to any of us, and it can lead to subluxations.

Your newborn won’t complain of neck or back pain, but they may have symptoms like colic, difficulty latching or restlessness. Dr. Wipperman uses a gentle touch to correct any spinal misalignments that interfere with the nervous system. When their nervous system starts functioning correctly, your baby’s healing abilities will take over and their symptoms can subside.

As kids get older, they often run into things, fall down or get jumped on by a sibling—all of these can cause subluxations that result in symptoms like inadequate immunity, behavior problems or sleep disturbances. School-aged kids may have playground accidents or play sports that cause stress in their bodies. Chiropractic care can keep their nervous system free of irritation and interference, so that their bodies can heal and adapt to whatever life throws at them.

Boosting Confidence

A mom brought her 5-year-old to see us when nothing else helped his bedwetting. They’d tried medical doctors, psychologists and medications with no results. As a last resort, they came to us. After two weeks of care, the little boy stopped wetting the bed completely. His outlook on life and his confidence soared, and the mom was thrilled.


How does chiropractic help kids?

Your child’s nervous system controls everything in their body. If there is any interference, the result can be health problems. We use safe diagnostic technology to locate these interferences, and gentle chiropractic adjustments to correct them. Then your child’s own healing ability takes over, so they can feel and function better.

Does it hurt?

No. We use a very soft touch to deliver light taps that gently correct the position of the bones.

How often does my child need to come in?

It depends on their condition. We typically see kids a few times a week for 3-4 weeks, then transition to wellness care once a month.
