Kids need chiropractic too! Mountain Movement Center offers excellent pediatric chiropractic services from our experienced and dedicated staff.

It is often a misconception that children wouldn’t need chiropractic as they have not achieved full bone or neural development. That is where the new chiropractic research comes in!

“DR. DAY IS ALSO GREAT WITH KIDS! I HAVE TAKEN MY TODDLER TO SEE HIM FOR WELLNESS VISITS. HE HAS HELPED HER SKIRT EAR INFECTIONS; AND HAS HELPED KEEP HER HEALTHY. I have also gone to visit him multiple times. He helped me get rid of my headaches and back pain. And now that I’m expecting Baby #2, I’m going for some more visits with him.”

Dr. Day is certified in Cranial, Full Spine, and Webster Techniques by the I.C.P.A (International Chiropractic Association.

Dr. Day has been treating pediatric cases and youth for 9 years.

Parents often come in with some general concern for what a Chiropractic visit for their child will look like.  Here are some common questions.

1.) Is it Gentle?

Absolutely. The Chiropractic adjustment for pediatric is like a light pressure point delivered to the “stuck” muscle or joint in the body.  These “stuck” areas often arise from birth trauma, slips and falls etc.

At times the adjustment will be taking the body gently through a range of motion.  There are no quick or forceful movements in our method.

2.) Will it help?

We would love for you to come set up a consult first so that you feel comfortable with our center and discuss your case.  We have helped so many cases where the parents had tried everything else to no avail.

3.) Will it hurt my child?

No. Often the child will have a great nap after! At times during the treatment the infant or child may fuss merely because they don’t feel like holding still.  But Dr. Day, having three kids at home, tries to engage the child and make it a fun and entertaining as well as healing experience.

4.) How Does it Work?

All that a certified Pediatric Chiropractor needs to do is help facilitate precise and gentle motion back into the muscles and joints of the body and the innate signals the child was born with do the rest.

We are born with nerve endings called proprioceptors and a coordinated series of developmental movements and benchmarks each child must reach.

Sometimes with trauma or injury even the simplest movements can become dysfunctional.  The proprioceptors become “confused” and the area tightens causing a myriad of symptoms.

Birth Trauma, positioning in the womb and slips and falls are a common cause of these changes to nerve signals, causing symptoms of fussiness, colic, inability to turn the body in one direction, inability to sit in a car seat, torticollis, grabbing at the side of back of the head, lack of symmetry with crawling or tummy time.

Dr. Day became certified in pediatric Chiropractic after the results he noticed with his first born son.  Soon after birth, Kai was unable to lie in a car seat or breastfeed comfortably.  After only several visits of gentle Chiropractic he was able to rest and feed comfortably.

The Day Method

Alongside traditional Chiropractic, Dr. Michael Day createda proprietary method that he found got patients better, fasterat his practice in Southern California.

The Day Method combines all of the past methods of Traditional Chiropractic with a blend of numerous disciplines:  But most importantly it’s GENTLE.

The key to the day method is that is “Graded” to the needs and comfort level of the patient.  Dr. Day met enough patients over his 8 years in practice to realize not all patients are candidatesfor the audible noise adjustment, and adapted his careto fit all patient needs.

Those who are smaller in stature or who have just been through an acute injury would receive a much softer method of mobilizing the Nerve-Joint-Muscle communication.  As well, infants and pregnant mothers recieve an entirely different approach than an everyday patients.
