Because we believe it’s easier to grow healthy kids than fixing sick, broken adults, Dr. Leah is passionate about providing pediatric care to the community.
Starting care shortly after birth is ideal as the birth process itself can be traumatic. In fact, studies have shown that over 90% of newborns checked immediately after birth had a subluxation in their spine that causes changes in the nervous system and health if left untreated. Removing subluxations can allow children to grow and become extremely healthy children who turn into healthy adults.
Dr. Leah is proud to be the only pediatric chiropractor in the area. She trains with the some of the best pediatric chiropractors in the nation with Epic Pediatrics and she is currently working towards her pediatric diplomat from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA).
Children can experience multiple benefits from receiving chiropractic care. We know that you want answers to challenges that your child is experiencing. Our number one goal is to empower and educate you with real answers and unparalleled pediatric care to allow your child to heal.
If you have any questions about how chiropractic care can help your child, please come in and just get checked. Dr. Leah will tell you if we can help or not, never wasting your time or money. The following are just SOME of the many common childhood conditions that chiropractic may help with:
Rest assured that as a pediatric chiropractor, Dr. Leah always provides gentle care in our fun and friendly office complete with toys, book, and even a children’s adjusting table to looks like an owl.
The process of adjusting babies, in particular, is very gentle, Dr. Leah applies light pressure – about the same amount of pressure used to check a tomato for ripeness.
Brooks, Dr. Leah’s son, had some difficulties breastfeeding on one side due to subluxations. She would adjust him every time he had a little trouble nursing and then immediate he was able to feed on that side.
As a mom, Dr. Leah understands that sometimes it is easier to talk and concentrate without your child present. At our office you may request to come in alone, without your child for the first part of their Day One visit. We can chat about what is going on with your child as well as discuss their history.
We look forward to helping your child experience optimal health through safe and gentle chiropractic care. Book an appointment at Vive Family Chiropractic today!
