Kids and Chiropractic

Babies and children are more susceptible to injury and neurological damage today than ever before. Exposure to chemicals, toxins in vaccines, exposure to GMO’s and artificial food ingredients, overuse of many medications, and injury from birth trauma are causing significant issues at a very young age. Chiropractic adjustments have a positive effect on babies and children, and can offer relief for many conditions. Chiropractic has been shown to help with:
– Colic
– Ear infections
– Breast feeding difficulties
– Reflux/GERD
– Nighttime bedwetting
– Coughs, cold and flu
– Falls and trauma

Pregnancy & Labor Services

Dr. Trudell works closely with many other professionals in the birthing community, such as doulas, midwives, lactation consulants, childbirth educators, etc. For more information on any of these services, check out some of Dr. Trudell’s favorite links, under the Pregnancy/Women’s Health/Doulas/Babies and Children section or call our office. We also have information on birthing plans and many resources in our lending library.

**For Birth Professionals: There are many reasons to refer your patients and clients for chiropractic care. Dr. Trudell is certified in the Webster Technique, and works with the special needs of pregnant patients every day. Here is a handout for use by other birth professionals when explaining chiropractic necessity to their patients and clients.

Dr. Trudell is also available for home/birthing center/hospital visits for adjustments before, during or after labor. For more information, contact Dr. Trudell at or at 608-437-9990.

Dr. Trudell offers a “Baby’s First Visit” appointment for infants born to mothers who were patients during their pregnancy. The birth process can be very stressful to the infant’s spine, even in the best possible birth situations. To help get your baby off to the best possible start, Dr. Trudell encourages you to bring him or her in for a Baby’s First Visit Checkup. This includes a thorough infant chiropractic physical and exam, and report of findings at no charge.  If we find areas that are subluxated from the birth process, we will be happy to treat those areas with safe and gentle chiropractic adjustments. Please let Dr. Trudell know if you have any questions.
