Pediatric Chiropractic Care in Altoona

Little Girl laying in grassBecause it’s easier to grow healthy kids versus fixing sick, broken adults, we are passionate about providing pediatric care to our young patients. Starting shortly after birth is ideal as the birth process itself can be traumatic. In fact, studies have shown that over 90% of newborns checked immediately after birth had a subluxation in their spine. A subluxation is a misalignment or lack of motion in the spine that causes changes in the nervous system and health if left untreated. Removing subluxations can allow children to grow and be formed into an extremely healthy child and adult.

Children can experience multiple benefits from receiving chiropractic care. We know that you want answers to challenges that your child is experiencing. Our number one goal is to empower and educate you with real answers and unparalleled pediatric care to allow your child to heal. If you have any questions about how chiropractic care can help your child, please come in and just get checked. Dr. Miranda will tell you if we can help or not, never wasting your time or money.

Providing Gentle Care

Rest assured that as a pediatric chiropractor, Dr. Miranda always provides gentle care in our fun and friendly office complete with toys and a stuffed animal that’s adjustable. She also has toy Activator® instruments so she can show children how they work. “I will always aim to help kids feel comfortable.”

The process of adjusting babies, in particular, is very gentle, Dr. Miranda only applies light pressure — about the same used to check a tomato for ripeness.

Some Success Stories

Calming a crying baby

One mom came into the practice at her wit’s end as her baby wouldn’t stop screaming. The baby also wouldn’t eat all day. After just one adjustment, the baby was calm and sleeping.

Reducing emotional outbursts

A girl in the second grade had violent outbursts to the point that she would pull out her eyelashes and hair. Unable to control her emotions, she also threw things. After just two months of care, she said she didn’t feel as aggressive anymore. The girl was able to control herself and was doing better in school. Her teachers also noticed a difference.

Helping to improve focus

One little boy didn’t focus very well in school. Teachers were constantly complaining how he couldn’t sit still, focus and learn. He was struggling in school and had been on medication. After receiving care, however, he was able to concentrate and perform in school. He loved going to school again.
