Pediatric Chiropractic in Lugoff
If you’re looking for drug-free, gentle and noninvasive health care for your child, consider chiropractic. Dr. Connell has more than 20 years experience helping infants and kids. Here are some of the many conditions he’s been able to help children with:
- Breastfeeding issues
- Digestive issues
- Ear infections
- Sleeping difficulties
- Torticollis (Crick in the neck)
Gentle, Effective Care
By getting the spine working correctly the information from the brain to the body can become normalized, and problems such as constipation can be resolved. In addition to chiropractic, Dr. Connell uses needleless electrical stimulation, which is incredibly useful for constipation issues.
Treating Kids As the Paying Patient
Unless you’re bringing in your baby or toddler, Dr. Connell will ask your child directly what’s going on. The purpose is to get your child comfortable talking with the doctor. “I like to get their perspective on what they are dealing with in their own words.” He’ll ask them what’s important to them and what symptoms they feel. This approach helps kids to be a little more at ease with what we do.
Seeing Kids Become Adult Patients
Since he began practicing in Lugoff in 1996, Dr. Connell has seen many of his patients grow into adults. Some continue come in to get adjusted and bring their children to be treated too. We find that when they become parents, they are more holistically oriented versus being reliant on medication. That’s because they were raised with a different mindset.
