Pediatric Chiropractic Care Durham

Dr. Thacker adjusting infantAs a father of five and a former neonatal intensive care nurse, Dr. Thacker is passionate about helping every child have a happy, healthy life. He knows the essential role that natural chiropractic care plays in promoting optimal health and wellness.

The Nervous System Controls Everything

Think of the nervous system as a fuse box. If there is a “blown fuse,” a child could respond with an array of common childhood conditions. These include constipation, colic, torticollis, irritability, sleep difficulties, reflux and more. As a pediatric chiropractor, Dr. Thacker focuses on allowing the nervous system to function without interference or to remove the “blown fuse,” which is known as a subluxation.

While chiropractic care doesn’t treat anything, it is remarkably effective at managing not only the conditions mentioned above but others. These include

  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Bed wetting
  • Digestive issues
  • Neurodevelopment disorders
  • Ear infections
  • Scoliosis
  • Chronic asthma
  • Boost immunity
  • And many more

We’ve seen kids who’ve had persistent asthma all the way through their childhood that have been on inhalers or medications for years. Thanks to chiropractic care some have either significantly reduced their medication and others have completely come off of their medications.

Undiagnosed scoliosis

Using chiropractic care, Dr. Thacker has seen the improvement in teens and those in their early twenties with undiagnosed scoliosis. He sees curves improve and his patients having less pain. Others become completely pain-free.

Using Gentle, Light-Force Techniques

If your child has never been under chiropractic care before, we understand that you may be concerned if it’s safe. It is! Not only that, but Dr. Thacker provides gentle, hands-on adjustments using light force. With infants, we use a lot of Logan Basic. With that technique, there’s no cracking and popping sound. The pressure that is applied is extremely light, about the same as that which is used to test a tomato for ripeness.

Once kids are about 8 years of age, we can adjust using a low-force technique. Your child may hear a sound, but the adjustment is never painful. Help your child experience the many benefits of chiropractic care. Contact us today to schedule an appointment with our pediatric chiropractor!
