We don’t even have a drill because there now exists a better way to treat tooth decay and we have it!

Children's Chiropractic Care

ADIO Chiropractic

Dane County’s leading pediatric and family health experts. We have a beautiful, first class office that is kid and family-friendly. We specialize in pediatrics, pregnancy, and family wellness, with an emphasis on Neuro-Developmental Disorders.

A chiropractic treatment for a child begins with an extensive examination to determine the exact issue and the best route for treatment. Even if your child is too young to communicate, or too shy, a chiropractor has the skills to work with them to find out exactly what is going on before proceeding with treatment, if it is determined treatment is needed. Gentle and non-invasive adjustments are then made to the spine. Children will often become relaxed and even fall asleep following treatment, a good sign that it has been effective. If you are concerned about your child’s spinal health, call our team at ADIO Chiropractic to set up a consultation today.
