Pediatric Chiropractic at Roots Chiropractic

At Roots Chiropractic, we want to create a healthier future for our community. Our goal is to help families learn to be proactive regarding health, rather than reactive, and we focus on educating parents and kids alike about the importance of maintaining a properly functioning nervous system.

Because our approach to care is neurologically based, we help optimize your child’s nervous system so that their innate healing intelligence can create and maintain health and wellness. When the nervous system is optimized in this way, it can prevent issues from arising in the future.

The birth process is our first major trauma in life, and often results in subluxations in a baby’s spine. If those subluxations aren’t corrected, the baby may experience common issues such as colic, torticollis, and breastfeeding challenges. Chiropractic care may help children reach developmental milestones and adapt to everyday stressors of life.

That’s why we encourage all our pregnant clients to bring their newborn in with them to their postpartum checkup, and why we offer generous family plans to make getting care for the entire family affordable and accessible.

Advanced Training

Both Dr. Lauren and Dr. Michael are passionate about helping children get off to a great start in life, so they have pursued advanced training through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. Dr. Michael is currently pursuing his Perinatal Certification through the ICPA.

Dr. Lauren is completing her Certification by the Academy Council of Chiropractic Pediatrics (CACCP) through the ICPA, which will make her one of only a select few chiropractors in Arizona with this certification. Dr. Lauren is also a certified BIRTHFIT Leader. BIRTHFIT is a trusted community and source for safe and effective strength and conditioning training throughout the motherhood transition.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can my child get adjusted?

Absolutely! Chiropractic care is great for children, including babies. The first major trauma we experience in life is birth. We understand the importance of checking children’s nervous system and making sure there is no interference so they can live a happy life, full of expression. Both Dr. Lauren and Dr. Michael are active members of the ICPA and have received extensive training with babies and children of all ages.

What is the adjustment like for a baby?

Our adjustments are very gentle and safe for babies who are only a few hours old. The technique we use consists of a gentle sustained contact, using the pressure you would use to check a tomato for ripeness. This touch is so light that babies can sleep through it.
