What is Chiropractic Care for Kids?
A Chiropractor trained in pediatric adjusting, uses very gentle pressure to remove stress from the body. An adjustment given to a child does not produce a “popping” noise. In fact, a pediatric chiropractor could be holding an infant and you wouldn’t be able to tell anything was being done. In 2009 Dr. Thompson achieved Certification by the Academy Council of Chiropractic Pediatrics (CACCP) through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. The ICPA offers Doctors of Chiropractic an opportunity to achieve certification in family wellness chiropractic through advanced academics and clinical studies. The 200 hour curriculum provides the doctor with techniques and protocols of care for children and pregnant women and requires additional hours bi-annually to maintain certification. Dr. Thompson is the only chiropractor in the Wichita area with this certification.(12/2017)
Dr. Ashley Thompson is the mother of two children; Joscelyn and Blake. Both of them have been under chiropractic care since they were hours old.
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.
