Chiropractic care is an essential part of your child's overall health and wellness. The nervous system controls everything in the body, it tells our heart to beat, our lungs to breathe and our eyes to see. The nervous system also controls growth and development as well as our child's developing immune system.
Research shows that one of the first traumas children endure is the birthing process. A subluxation or misalignment in a child's spine can alter the flow of important information from the nervous system and have hindering affects on a child's development.
Luckily, Dr. Pinnow has a passion for working with children and additional training in providing chiropractic care to pediatrics. Dr. Pinnow worked under and trained with Doctors who held a Diplomate in Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics (DICCP). When starting her practice in Muskego, WI, she insisted in having the word "Family" in Affinity Family Chiropractic to bring awareness to her passion for treating families, including children.
Dr. Pinnow's youngest patient to date was a one day old baby boy - a record that's going to be hard to beat! There is no age that is too young or time that is too early. The adjustments and techniques that are available to use vary widely depending on age, circumstances, and parental preference.
Many of the chronic problems that adults experience begin early on in childhood. While sick children grow up to be sick adults, healthy children grow up to be healthy adults!
Common conditions treated include:
- Ear infections
- Immune Sytem Function
- Digestive problems
“The two approaches that I have seen work most effectively to reduce ear fluid, ear pain and chronic ear problems is a change in the child’s and family’s diet and the incorporation of manual adjustments into the care plan, i.e., Chiropractic.” - Dr. Lawrence Palvesky, MD
