Pediatric Chiropractic in Abilene

Frequently Asked Questions

Doctor Cory Kopas with young patient

Why should children see a chiropractor?

Children do an incredible amount of growing, developing, and learning, but the body is not designed to be in growth mode and stress mode (fight or flight) at the same time.


We know how hard it is as adults to function under emotional stress or pain of any sort. Now imagine experiencing that and not being able to communicate how you are feeling.


We believe it is easier to be proactive and relieve the stress on the spine and nervous system of growing children than it is to try to unwind years of stress when they are adults. 

My child doesn't like going to see doctors/doesn't sit still...I'm worried how they will react. Is chiropractic still an option?

Absolutely! You may be surprised to see that our office is different. Children and families have fun here. Your child will see that and it will make a difference. If your kiddo doesn't want to sit still or isn't ready, Dr. Cory will meet them where they are at...if that's the floor one day, that's okay! We won't force anything.

How do you adjust children?

The technique is the same as it would be with an adult, however, for babies and toddlers, the pressure applied is only about what it takes to check the ripeness of a tomato.
