Pediatric Chiropractic Care in North Royalton

At Elite Health and Wellness, helping children be healthy and stay healthy are our top goals. Pediatric chiropractic can help children to regain their health by restoring optimal function to their nervous system. The approach our doctors take is what makes us unique. We use comprehensive, in-depth scanning technology so we can detect how the child’s nervous system is functioning.

Restoring Maximum Function

Our highly skilled doctors provide parents with answers about the state of their child’s health and a plan on how to restore optimal function. Our objective is not to treat the child’s symptoms, but rather to identify the state of their nervous system so that specific and individualized chiropractic care can be delivered to each child.  This precise chiropractic care allows the body to heal so that it can restore maximum function to the nervous system.  This proper functioning of the nervous system then results in alleviation of many of the symptoms that had presented when the body wasn’t in an ideal state.  Children with the following common conditions have experienced improvement through chiropractic care:

    • Acid Reflux
    • ADD/ADHD
    • Allergies
    • Asthma
    • Autism
    • Chronic ear infections
  • Colic
  • Constipation
  • Seizures
  • Sensory Processing Disorder
  • Torticollis

As these conditions are all neurologically driven, they respond well to chiropractic care and can dramatically improve. Once your child achieves optimal function, the focus is then to try and maintain their health through a comprehensive wellness plan.

Success Stories

Clearing Chronic Congestion

One of our little male patients started care when he was 18 months old. He had been suffering from chronic congestion, which was affecting his sleep, behavior and overall health. His parents had been to many health care practitioners, including a pediatrician, a pediatric ENT, an acupuncturist and a naturopath. They tried whatever they knew to get relief for their little boy for his congestion.

They had been told he had allergies; however, nothing given by the allergist was working. He had been referred to our office by another patient. We did a complete first day procedure for the little boy. He had some significant subluxations in the upper part of his neck. A care plan was established and an adjusting protocol was used to correct the subluxations, thereby reducing the stress to his nervous system and allowing the nerves that control the sinuses to function without interference.

First thing the next morning the mom called our office to let us know it was the best night’s sleep her son had since he was born. He experienced a significant decrease in the amount of congestion he had as well. A repair and restoration plan continued for him over the next two months. At the end of the two months, he had no congestion! All of the irritants that caused the congestion in the past were no longer a problem. We have been seeing him for almost three years now on his wellness plan and he’s a happy and healthy 4½ year old boy.

Relieving Ear Infections

A little girl who was almost 4 had constant ear infections for the last two years of her life. Her parents had been at the pediatrician two days prior to coming to our office. They wanted to put tubes in her ears claiming they would help promote drainage. The mother was skeptical because she knew that tubes can cause a lot of harm. The mother and daughter came in and we performed a complete evaluation. Upon analysis, it was obvious that the little girl had numerous subluxations in her neck and lower pelvis.

The doctor established a repair and restoration care plan for her using a specific adjusting protocol to correct the subluxations and restore motion to the areas of the spine that were under stress. This allowed for improved function of the nervous system and enabled the specific nerves affected to work without interference. Mom reported that she was coming in with an ear infection. She told us the next day that her ear started to drain within two hours of leaving from her first adjustment.

We have been caring for her now for over a year. She has not had any recurrences or signs of an ear infection. Her personality also started to change over time. The little girl used to be a high stress and high anxiety child with a high level of irritability and behavior issues. After several months mom reported that not only was her child physically healthier, she was now a different child with improved behavior and temperament. Her anxiety had decreased tremendously.

The New Patient Process

The First Visit

The first time you visit Elite Health and Wellness, you’ll be greeted by a member of our friendly staff.  Since you’ve completed your child’s new patient paperwork at home, we’ll need just a few signatures when you arrive.  While you take care of those important first day introductions your child will enjoy our kids play area!

Our staff will then escort you and your child to our exam room where the doctor will review your child’s health history with you and perform an in-depth chiropractic exam.  We are determined to find the cause of your child’s health challenges.  Once the exam is completed, our chiropractic assistant will perform three essential tests with our state-of-the-art Subluxation Station.  We utilize this cutting edge technology to determine the functional state of your child’s nervous system.

All of this valuable information will be carefully reviewed by the doctor along with your physical exam findings to provide a comprehensive analysis of your child’s health and well-being.

The Second Visit

Your second visit is where you get to the heart of your child’s health. You will be greeted by a member of our friendly staff and escorted to the consultation room where you will watch a short video before the Report of Findings.

Dr. Haggerty will discuss your child’s examination findings with you. The doctor will educate you about the results so that you understand the impact your child’s nervous system function is having on their health and explain the role that chiropractic plays in their health and healing. Your child’s personalized care plan will also be discussed.

Starting Care

A member of our staff will meet with you after your child’s Report of Findings to discuss financial responsibility, payment options and appointment scheduling.

Your child will then start their care plan, receiving their first adjustment by the doctor.  At the end of their appointment you will have their care plan scheduled and your financial arrangements in place.  It’s our goal to make your families healing the focus of your visits!

Convenient Options

The new patient process is flexible depending on the presenting health condition of a child.  If your child or family is coming to our office for a wellness check, the above routine will work great for you.  However, if there are more significant health challenges occurring with your child, you may find it easier to schedule a separate appointment to meet with the doctor in person or over the phone without your child present.  This gives parents the opportunity to discuss their child’s health history, current health concerns and have their questions answered in an atmosphere that is convenient for them.

After that initial appointment, you will have a second appointment to bring in your child so that we can perform the examination and state-of-the-art scans.  For your convenience, having already completed the consultation with the doctor prior to this second visit, the amount of time in the office with your child will be reduced, thereby minimizing stress for both of you.

Many parents of children with severe ADD/ADHD, Asperger Syndrome, Autism, and Sensory Processing Disorders find this approach very helpful.  We understand how important it can be to minimize the amount of stimulation some of our young patients receive.
