Pediatric Chiropractic at
Integrity Health and Wellness of Columbus

Children can often be afraid of doctors, if their only experience has been receiving their shots. Dr. Eric will joke and play with the kids to put them at ease. At Integrity Health and Wellness of Columbus, we do all we can to make your child’s visit fun and bring everyone’s stress levels down.

The 3 T’s (or Maybe 4…)

Dr. Eric likes to go over handouts with his parents to educate them about how he works and what the scans do. The first one he discusses is the 3 T’s: Trauma, Toxins and Thoughts. Dr. Eric believes we need to add another T for Technology!

These three types of stressors put the body into what he likes to call “gas pedal mode.” Based in the sympathetic nervous system, it triggers the fight or flight response. Its counterpart is “brake pedal mode,” based on the parasympathetic nervous system. This tells your body to rest and digest; grow and develop.

Adjustments tap on the brake pedal, allowing the body to function as it should, and calming down the nervous system.

Why Does My Child Need Chiropractic Care?

Children under chiropractic care have bodies that function as they were born to do. This allows them to live their lives without medicines that can cause other problems in the future. Chiropractic care is often the last resort for people who have been unable to find results elsewhere.

Some traumas children may experience include stressful pregnancy, birth intervention, traumatic birth, and childhood falls and accidents. Toxins include antibiotics, poor diet, medications or environmental toxins. Thoughts might be fear, anxiety, technology overload, busy lifestyle, impulsive behavior, and social issues.

Who Can Benefit?

We have observed success with these conditions:

  • Colic and other digestive issues
  • Sleep disorders
  • Reflux
  • Constipation
  • Breastfeeding and latch issues
  • Torticollis
