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.

    -S.C.
  • 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!
