Dr. Ashley Thompson is the mother to two children; Joscelyn and Blake. Both of them have been under chiropractic care since they were hours old.
Did you know that adjusting a child is very different then adjusting an adult? An adjustment given to a child does not produce a “popping” noise. A Chiropractor trained in pediatric adjusting uses very gentle pressure to remove stress from the body. In fact a pediatric chiropractor could be holding an infant and you wouldn’t be able to tell anything was being done. Dr. Thompson is certified through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association in the care of children.
Have you ever heard of the saying, as the twig is bent, so grows the tree? In the first two years of life the nervous system doubles in size. On Average a child falls over 700 times before the age of two. Because a growing body is exposed to many stresses, it is important to be sure the nervous system is able to adapt to its environment.
