Pediatric Chiropractic in Lacey

At Atlas Chiropractic PC, we love adjusting newborns and kids. It’s incredibly rewarding to help people avoid lifelong health issues by addressing the traumas associated with birth and common childhood injuries. We believe it’s always easier to prevent problems from occurring than to try to correct them months, years, or even decades later.

In the United States, birth is typically traumatic, with twisting, pulling, and other types of medical interventions that can cause misalignments and damage to the spine—especially the atlas in the upper neck.

Our Approach

We don’t X-ray children until they’re about five or six years old. We’ll use gentle palpation to detect misalignments and gentle fingertip pressure and to correct those misalignments. Since babies’ bones are mostly cartilage at this point, they typically respond very quickly to adjustments.

We also use the Activator instrument, a low-force, instrument-assisted method of adjustment that can be tailored to each person’s specific needs. The lowest setting is safe even for newborns, and we will adjust the setting as kids get older and bigger.

Who We Help

We aim to have every child come in for a checkup and adjustment! Here are some of the life-changing results parents report:

  • Better sleep
  • Improved breathing
  • No more ear infections (otitis media)
  • Better immune function
  • Improved focus
  • Colic improvements

Our Family-Centered Practice

We love having the whole family come in for care. Our open layout allows space for kids to play or come and watch while Mom and Dad get adjusted. When it’s their turn, little ones can try out our toy Activators to see how they work. Since Dr. Sweet has kids of his own, he’s great at building rapport with our youngest members, and making it a fun family event helps instill a strong foundation for prioritizing health throughout life.

Set the Stage Today

Rather than letting birth or other traumas go unaddressed so those issues can cause health havoc for the rest of their lives, we recommend bringing kids in as soon as possible to check for misalignments in their neck and spine.
