Pediatric Chiropractic in Baraboo

At Gateway Wellness Center, we believe that spinal health is foundational and that caring for children’s spines is just as important as caring for their teeth. When it comes to kids, if their nervous system is interfered with at all, they can’t grow and develop the way that they should, so taking care of their spinal health helps protect and encourage their ability to meet their developmental milestones.

Dr. Angela firmly believes in checking babies right after they’re born to set them on the right path to optimal health and wellness.

Helping Children Feel at Ease

Dr. Angela gives a lot of time and attention to ensuring every child feels comfortable in her office. That may include sitting on the floor with the child in the waiting room, playing with the dogs, or looking at a book. She’s very aware that building a relationship with the child is important so they feel safe in our environment. After all, if they’re resistant or fearful, she can’t do her job.

Watching how the child interacts with her is also part of Dr. Angela’s assessment. A member of the International Pediatric Chiropractic Association (ICPA), she is very experienced and knowledgeable with children and teens.

She always keeps in mind the need to remain in the safety and security window of the nervous system to not override it and send the nervous system into shutdown.

Signs That Your Child (From Babies to Teens) Needs Their Spine Checked

  • Digestive issues
  • Food sensitivities
  • Skin rashes
  • Attention/behavior challenges
  • Sleep disruption
  • Sports injuries
  • Poor posture
  • Repetitive actions (music, sports, dance, horseback, etc)

Adjusting baby

Special Care for Your Little Ones

When parents come to our clinic, many are concerned about whether she adjusts children differently and if they’ll hurt their child. Dr. Angela modifies her techniques to match their smaller physiology. She has several options specifically for adjusting babies and kids, including cranial techniques, BioGeometric Integration, and gentle instrument adjusting with the ArthroStim®.

All methods are gentle, and we have both prenatal and pediatric pillows in the practice for comfort and support. Dr. Angela may do her exam with the baby on the mom’s lap or lying on a pillow, whatever they feel safer with.

The discussion may include nutrition, digestive issues, food sensitivities, anxiety, and behavioral issues. She’ll make recommendations that pertain to your child’s overall health, including supplementation if it is appropriate.

Why Would I Take My Child or My Teen to a Chiropractor?

Today’s health care system is geared primarily to illness and emergency care, and doesn’t help kids to learn how to manage their stress, anxiety, health or overall wellbeing. At Gateway, kids and their parents are offered a new way to think: to be proactive about their health. Dr. Angela helps kids to recognize when their spinal system needs extra care, and what to do when they are out of sync.

Student athletes and performers particularly put huge demands on their minds and bodies: football, volleyball, soccer, cheerleading, dance, horseback – so many great activities that take a toll on young bodies that are still developing.

With Dr. Angela’s help, kids learn to listen to their bodies, and not to wait until pain or stress overwhelms them.
