Pediatric Chiropractor for Kids in West Des Moines, IA

At Truth Family Chiropractic, we warmly invite our youngest patrons to experience the world of chiropractic for kids! Indeed, pediatric chiropractic care isn’t merely an add-on – it’s a cornerstone of our practice. A myriad of parents daily witness the incredible benefits that chiropractic for kids can deliver, spanning improved sleep, enhanced behavior and attitude, and fortified immune system functionality.

Our entire staff enjoys seeing children in our practice and will always create a positive experience for them. We hold the conviction that initiating chiropractic for kids at an early age can yield remarkable benefits, paving the way for your child’s optimum health as they grow.

Chiropractic for Kids’ Wellbeing

By adolescence, kids may clock in up to 11 hours of total screen time every day. Most of the time, they sit in a slumped position or a way that doesn’t properly support the spine.

Overall, modern life neglects the support a healthy spine requires. The impact can be especially problematic for growing children and teens. Many things they use every day – the backpacks they carry, shoes they wear, and bedding they sleep in – put them at an increased risk for spinal misalignment.

Our doctors at Truth Family Chiropractic can address a diverse array of issues with kids, including persistent crying and feeding problems in infants to asthma and learning disorders in teens. Headaches and chronic ear infections are other common reasons that kids visit a chiropractor.

One survey of chiropractic care of children under 18 years found that 24 percent of visits were for prevention, especially for children younger than four. It’s never too early to introduce your children to the many benefits that chiropractic can provide!

Chiropractors are uniquely trained to address these issues. Through adjustments as well as incorporating nutrition, exercise, and healthy lifestyle factors, they play a critical role in the development of kids now and as they grow into becoming healthy adults.

How Our Pediatric Care Plan Works

Core Chiropractic

Central to chiropractic care is the knowledge that spinal correction optimizes the nervous system for proper function.


If you want to have the best health for your entire lifetime, you have to choose a healthy diet focused on whole foods that will supply your body with all the nutrients it needs to keep you in peak performance on a daily basis.


A healthy body starts with the right mindset. We believe a healthy lifestyle provides nutrients for optimal brain function, stress management, and good sleep patterns.

Oxygen & Exercise

Exercise helps your body increase oxygen levels and lean muscle, helping reduce fat and improve performance while increasing your ability to fight stress, anxiety, and other illnesses.

Minimize Toxins

Harmful chemicals surround us every day in our lives – our program supports the body’s natural ability to cleanse itself, resulting in long-lasting positive effects.

Chiropractic for Sports Injuries

Around 40 percent of under-18 chiropractor visits are due to musculoskeletal conditions, which can especially occur as children grow older. These can range from short-lived problems such as fractures and sprains to chronic pain and disability.

Besides pain, musculoskeletal conditions can limit someone’s mobility and ability to do everyday things such as playing sports. Over time, these conditions may also limit your child’s mental well-being.

Chiropractic care can help kids who have been injured, but regular visits can also prevent injuries from occurring. Bringing back the body to its ideal state can ward off injuries, promote healing and repair, and support the growing bodies of children so they become healthy, active adults.

Chiropractic for Stress

Children and adolescents experience many forms of stress. One survey found that almost 45 percent of high schoolers felt stressed “all the time.” The Covid-19 pandemic has only amplified that stress while creating new stressors for many kids. Over time, this stress can manifest as obesity, depression, and many other diseases.

Chiropractors are trained to address specific stressors and provide coping strategies that will help your child excel in any area of life. Especially during this challenging time, giving your child the skills to manage life’s inevitable stressors is critical.

Chiropractic for Sleep

Up to half of children will experience a sleep problem. Even minor disruptions in sleep can impact learning, socialization, and other areas of a child’s life.

Anyone who has struggled with a sleepless child knows how it can impact everyone living with that child. Chiropractic care can help. According to the National Sleep Foundation, 40 percent of infants sleep better after just one visit to a chiropractor. Chiropractic care can address the sleeplessness that any child or teen might experience.

What Can Kids Expect at a Chiropractic Visit?

For many children and teens, that first visit to a chiropractor might be a bit nerve-wracking. Knowing what to expect can help.

During the initial visit, your child might have specific adjustments based on his or her unique condition along with an exam of the spine. Your chiropractor might take x-rays or otherwise analyze the spine for a closer look.

The adjustment itself is usually a short part of the appointment. Afterward, your chiropractor will likely help you to make better lifestyle decisions, including personalized exercises and posture techniques. These recommendations will be custom-tailored based on the child and his or her condition.

Chiropractic care could be the missing link that empowers your child to be healthy and happy now and in the future.
