Why Kids Need a Chiropractor

Just like adults, kids can have abnormal biomechanics, stress and strain on their bodies and the subluxations that result. As chiropractors, our job is to find these areas that are compromising their health and make corrections. It’s also our goal to be educators, making sure your kids know how to attain good health and get the support they need for their well-being. Your entire family can get the care they need at Donohoe Chiropractic!

Education is a tremendous part of what we do. After all, the word “doctor” means “teacher.” We want to share our knowledge with area parents, such as the true cause common childhood ailments and how to avoid them. We’ll talk to you about the sleeping positions that are right for your baby, troubleshoot breastfeeding with you and more.

It’s our goal to make sure your kids grow up trusting their bodies. Many of our pediatric patients will say, “Mommy, my knee hurts. I need to go to the doctor.” They’re not talking about the pediatrician-they want to come to our clinic. Your kids will learn how to listen to their bodies and learn from them.

It was when Dr. Donohoe was first in chiropractic school that he learned a chiropractor could specialize in pediatric care. Immediately, he knew that was what he wanted to do. No small task, his studies involved a three-year post-doctorate training program. This in-depth training prepared Dr. Donohoe to be a specialist in pediatrics and prenatal. Now, Dr. Oldenburg is following in his footsteps to become a Diplomate in these areas.

Dr. Donohoe is the only practitioner in our county to be a Certified Pediatric and Prenatal Chiropractor. He holds a Diplomate in Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics (D.I.C.C.P.) through the International Chiropractic Association.

What if my child is nervous about going to the chiropractor?

We love kids. Rest assured that we’re skilled in dealing with all ages. We’ll show your child our skeleton, teach them about what their body looks on the inside and let them examine our adjusting instrument. They can take a “ride” on the adjusting table, moving it up and down and letting them have some fun. We’ll give them a positive experience that makes them look forward to the next visit!
How do you adjust children?

Our technique is called Activator Methods®. It uses a handheld instrument to deliver a precise, gentle adjustment that is appropriate for everyone-even infants.
