Pediatric chiropractic care is essential to ensure that your child's nerve system is free of problems so that your child can develop to their full potential. Your child's nerve system is responsible for their proper development and health potential. The Nobel prize was awarded for brain research that revealed that 90% of the nutrition and stimulation to the brain comes from normal motion of your child's spine. If problems exist in the spine, they will cause noxious input into the brain and nerve system which leads to health problems.
The birth process is the first major stressful event in your child's life. Then, by the age of three, the average child falls 3-5,000 times! These stressful events can have lasting negative affects for years to come. In fact, due to his uncorrected spinal problems, Dr. Madden himself had advanced arthritis in his spine by the time he was 11 years young!
At Broadway Chiropractic Center, we understand the importance of getting and keeping your child healthy. Pediatric chiropractic care is the best form of wellness chiropractic care. Parental education is the first step in the pediatric chiropractic process. The following are answers to commonly asked questions:
Due to the stress to your child during the C-section process and the natural birth through the birth canal, it is recommended that you get your child checked right after birth.

When you bring your child in for the first visit, Dr. Madden will ensure that you have as much information as possible before we even begin. First, we will get a full health history and answer any questions or concerns you may have about your child's health. Then, a thorough examination will be completed and all findings will be discussed.
