Pediatric Chiropractic at Smith Elite Family Chiropractic

Child on adjusting tableOne of the most unresolved and underappreciated stressors that affects long-term health is birth trauma. Even in a natural delivery with no medical interventions, significant pressure is exerted on the delicate spine of a baby, and this can result in interference in the child’s nervous system.

At Smith Elite Family Chiropractic, we don’t believe in the old “they’ll grow out of it” mentality—we see the effects of birth trauma every day, and they don’t just go away on their own. When the nervous system can’t work as it should, every system of the body can be affected, resulting in health issues as well neurodevelopmental delays that can last a lifetime.

Instead, we offer a more proactive approach to help improve a child’s health for the rest of their life.


We had a recent patient who was diagnosed with failure to thrive and wasn’t gaining weight or pooping. We identified the underlying problem and, after a few sessions, the baby started gaining weight, sleeping and thriving.

How We Help

We begin with a consultation with Mom and Dad to understand what’s going on with a child’s health and development. Then we conduct nervous system assessments using state-of-the-art CLA INSiGHT® scanning technology. This noninvasive, radiation-free assessment is painless and safe for everyone, including newborns. These scans let us see what’s going on with your child’s nervous system and where interference exists.

Based on this information, we create a customized care plan using very gentle, low-force techniques that are safe and comfortable for infants and older kids.

Who We Help

We believe that every child can benefit from chiropractic care starting as soon after birth as possible. The benefits of chiropractic don’t just help the kiddos—they help the whole family. That’s because when your baby is calm, happy and eating, sleeping and pooping as they should, the whole family has less stress.

For older kids, the benefits of chiropractic can be seen in improved emotional regulation, stronger immune function, better digestion and better sleep.
