Chiropractic for Children in Meridian


Pediatric Chiropractic

Anacker Clinic of Chiropractic Pediatric Chiropractic PatientDr. Jennifer Anacker has adjusted children ranging in age from newborn babies who were less than an hour old to teenagers. It is amazing to see the results of chiropractic care in children that are checked for subluxations or nerve impingement from early-on.

With continued care and regular check-ups, children are shown to be sick less often, to excel in development, and to accelerate into their gifts and talents. Pediatric chiropractic care helps children adapt to life’s chemical, physical and emotional changes with more ease. Nerve impingement or subluxations affect the muscles, organs and all areas of the body.

Dr. Anacker is passionate about giving newborns the best health possible through chiropractic adjustments given within hours or days after birth. Several situations can cause misalignments that cause irritation to an infant’s nerves. These include in-utero restraints, birth trauma, improper baby care, and excessive time in car seats.

Chiropractic care for infants can relieve constipation, colic, reflux, ear infections, breast feeding complications, digestion issues and torticollis, as well as prevent SIDS.

Toddlers/Young Children

By the age of 7 the average child has taken 2,500 falls. Chiropractic adjustments can aid in the healing of this kind of muscular/skeletal trauma. Chiropractic care for children enhances the immune system and can relieve asthma and allergies. Chiropractic care also addresses the issues of bed-wetting, growing pains, learning or developmental delays and behavioral problems.


During the last stage of spinal development in a child’s teenage years there are several reasons for chiropractic care. Adjustments can correct poor posture brought on by carrying heavy backpacks or by texting and gaming. Chiropractic care also aids in the treatment or prevention of headaches, scoliosis, PMS, attention issues such as ADHD, and back pain. It is an effective treatment for teenagers who are emotionally withdrawn as well.

Anacker Clinic of Chiropractic Pediatric Chiropractic PatientChildren should be checked for nerve impingement at birth with continued care throughout childhood. Chiropractors do not treat or cure disease but instead reduce interference to the nervous system to enhance optimal health. Parents have noted positive changes in their children’s immune, digestive, and respiratory systems. Regular check-ups by a chiropractor are imperative to optimal health and allow easier adaptation to life’s stressors.
