Getting the Whole Family Adjusted-Including Dad!

As a chiropractor, I often see patients who come in with their entire family. It’s not unusual for parents to bring their kids in for an adjustment, or for siblings to come in together. In fact, I adjust dads all the time! I always enjoy when fathers bring their families in because it shows that they are committed to their health and wellness too. From young children to adults, getting adjusted is a great way to keep your family members healthy and happy!

Newborns and Infants

Newborns and infants are chiropractic patients who can benefit greatly from chiropractic adjustments. The central nervous system controls all the functions of the body and chiropractic care helps to ensure that the central nervous system is functioning properly. When there is interference in the central nervous system, it can result in a wide range of problems. chiropractic adjustments help to remove this interference, allowing the body to function at its best. Many parents bring their newborns and infants to the chiropractor for regular wellness checks and adjustments. Chiropractic care is gentle and safe for newborns and infants and can help them to reach their full potential.

Children and Teens

Chiropractic care can help your children and teens feel their best! Chiropractors use a variety of techniques such as spinal adjustments, extremity adjustments, chiropractic manipulations, soft tissue work, and rehabilitative exercises. These techniques can help your children and teens with a variety of ailments such as headaches, sports injuries, growing pains, scoliosis, and stress. Chiropractic care is a safe and drug-free way to help your child or teen feel their best.

Painful ear infections happen to many toddlers and children. Did you know that taking them to see a chiropractor helps prevent this common problem? Realigning the top bones in the neck encourages proper drainage in the ears.

Teens involved in sports and physical activities will greatly benefit from proper chiropractic care. It is also important to care for their young bodies as they move into adulthood. Preventative care is a gift to give your child that will help them for the rest of their lives.


At some point in their lives, most adults will experience back pain. Back pain can be caused by a variety of factors, including poor posture, lifting heavy objects, and spending too much time sitting down. Many people try to self-treat back pain with over-the-counter medication, but this only provides temporary relief. For lasting results, it is important to see a chiropractor. Chiropractors are trained to diagnose and treat problems with the musculoskeletal system. They use a variety of techniques, including spinal manipulation, to correct alignment issues and relieve pain. chiropractors can also provide advice on how to maintain good posture and prevent future back pain. For many people, chiropractic care is an effective way to find relief from back pain.

Tell Dad that chiropractic care even helps get rid of snoring!


As people age, they often start to experience more aches and pains. This is because the joints and bones start to degenerate, and the muscles and ligaments become less elastic. While some discomfort is to be expected, seniors can take steps to minimize pain and maintain their quality of life. For example, regular chiropractic adjustments can help to improve joint function and reduce inflammation. In addition, gentle stretching and exercises can help to keep the muscles and ligaments supple. By taking care of their bodies, seniors can stay active and independent for many years to come.

Chiropractic care isn’t reserved for a specific age group or gender. It is a holistic approach to wellness for everyone, from infants to seniors. It offers immense benefits to all family members by addressing a range of health issues, from ear infections in toddlers to back pain in adults and joint discomfort in seniors. 

Dads, just like every other family member, also stand to gain from these adjustments! Embracing chiropractic adjustments as a family underscores a commitment to holistic health, wellness, and longevity. So, when considering a family activity that can benefit everyone’s health, a visit to the chiropractor might just be at the top of the list. It’s a shared journey of health and well-being that the entire family can embark on together.
