Pediatric Chiropractic in Hendersonville

If you’re looking for drug-free, gentle and noninvasive health care for your child, consider chiropractic. Pediatric chiropractor Dr. Craig 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:

  • Bed-wetting
  • Breastfeeding issues
  • Colic
  • Digestive issues
  • Ear infections
  • Scoliosis
  • Sleeping difficulties
  • Torticollis

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. Craig uses needleless electrical acupuncture, which is incredibly useful for constipation issues.

Treating Kids As the Paying Patient

Unless you’re bringing in your baby or toddler, Dr. Craig will ask your child directly what’s going in. The purpose is to get your child comfortable talking with the doctor. “My process is to treat children as paying patients.” 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 Hendersonville in 2005, Dr. Craig has seen many of his patients grow into adults. Some come in from time to time to get adjusted. 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.


Do you adjust kids differently from adults?

Though Dr. Craig uses the same adjusting techniques with kids as he does with adults, he will only employ about a quarter of the pressure—about the same amount that you would use to put your finger through two pieces of paper towels.

Will my child get better?

It all depends but we will do our best! One child could experience a full recovery after a single adjustment while another may seem to get worse before getting better. We like to use the analogy of someone who hasn’t worked out in two weeks and then runs for three miles. The next day the person will feel it.

Dr. Craig always will be frank and honest with parents and may answer that he doesn’t know if his care will provide the results you’re seeking. He will say, “Let’s try and see what happens.”
