Pediatric Chiropractic in Rancho Cucamonga

Family Health Chiropractic

You’ll know that we’re a kid-friendly office from the moment you step in. Patients of all ages, from newborns on up, see Dr. Jon. A kids’ play area makes their experience at Abundant Life Chiropractic fun and enjoyable. We encourage families to come together, reaching the highest levels of wellness with natural chiropractic care.

Newborns and Babies

During pregnancy and birth, stress is placed on a baby’s delicate nervous system, which controls everything else in the body. If there’s stress on the nerves, it can contribute to problems such as

  • Sleep issues
  • Colic
  • Constipation
  • Decreased immunity
  • Ear infections
  • Poor digestion
  • Reflux
  • Delayed milestones

During the first year of your child’s life, they roll over, lift their head, sit up, crawl and stand. Even if they don’t have any concerning symptoms after birth, regular chiropractic checks can ensure they hit all these important milestones.

Our youngest patients receive a different form of chiropractic care than adults. With babies, just the pressure of a pinky is used. Once your children are older, Activator Methods® instrument-based technique will give a low-force, noninvasive chiropractic adjustment. We’ll be happy to demonstrate what the adjustment feels like on Mom or Dad’s hand, or on your child’s, before starting.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are a baby’s adjustments the same as adults?

No, not at all. With babies, adjustments look more like a light touch and gentle pressure, as opposed to quick movements or loud popping noises.

Does chiropractic help with colic or reflux?

While chiropractic doesn’t cure or treat those issues, we often see babies and kids with those concerns. After they get adjusted, little ones often recover from colic or reflux and other issues, such as ear infections.

Why would I have a newborn or young child adjusted?

We see newborns soon after birth, because even under the most normal circumstances during birth, there can still be stress on the baby’s spine. As the spine houses those nerves that control areas for latching, sleeping, and digestion, we want to ensure that all those functions are working to their fullest.
  • Since day one of taking my daughter here for her torticollis I have felt she has been getting amazing help. Love how Dr. Torrijos breaks everything down where you understand it all. He is so gentle on my daughter and she always leaves relaxed and knocks out in the car. Couldn’t be happier with the help we are receiving.
  • Dr Jon was great and explained everything about newborn adjustments. He put our nerves to ease for our 3 week old baby’s adjustment. Results were seen within days of the 1st visit, my baby was able to pass a fecal impaction.
  • I love the clean and kid-friendly environment and thank you for providing a changing station with diapers and wipes!

  • My 4 yr old daughter was nervous and reluctant to go in as expected. The staff welcomed and reassured her though, and Dr. Jon continually engaged her in our consultation to the point where she was telling Dr. Jon about her friends at school and her favorite shows while being examined and x-rayed. When our visit was done (very good results), she actually wanted to stay and chat!
  • Super impressed with how well the staff works with children!
  • I loved the experience. I am now taking both my children here.
  • Truly grateful I was able to have full trust in Dr. Jon with my son during his adjustment!
  • The entire staff is absolutely amazing! So thankful to have found Dr. Jon and his practice. My infant is doing so much better!
  •  Everyone here is so kind! From my initial phone call, Alex made me feel so welcome! I’m new to chiropractic care and recently was injured and have been in severe pain. I was using a cane to walk as I could not stand up straight due to the pain. I just finished my second adjustment and I’m already able to stand without the cane and have already found relief from intense discomfort and swelling. I feel so so thankful to have found Dr Jon and I’m so hopeful for my continued treatments and healing!
    Thank you so much!!!
  •   Appreciate how kid friendly the practice is and how the space is made to include them in what goes on.
  • My son is Autistic and I took him to see Abundant Life and I saw a huge difference just within his first visit. I absolutely love how everyone is so friendly and Dr. is the BEST! Very caring and explained everything to me in detail. I loved it.

  • Dr. Jon and his staff were very friendly and welcoming. They allowed me to privately breastfeed in their consultation room. My 2 month old doesn’t smile for just anyone, but I was surprised to see her smile so big when Dr. Jon was working with her!
