Pediatric Chiropractic Care at
Thrive Family Chiropractic, LLC

Kids watching baby adjustmentThrive Family Chiropractic, LLC’s experience and specialty in pediatric care is truly what sets us apart in Springfield, MO and surrounding areas. We have seen incredible results with many challenges from colicky babies, chronically sick kiddos, and sensory and spectrum challenges.

All too often we hear parents of kiddos with colic, constipation, recurrent ear infections, allergies, sensory challenges or developmental delays be told “they’ll grow out of it”. Well that simply is not true. And without proper help kids actually will “grow in to” these chronic challenges.

That’s why we have made it our mission to help give you answers and find the root cause of your child’s health struggles.

They have gone above and beyond to help my newborn with colic! We have seen huge improvements in a short time. Dr. James and Jessica make the office very family friendly and my older child likes to go there to play in the waiting area while the baby gets adjusted.

At Thrive Family Chiropractic, LLC, we believe that every young person deserves a chance to have a happy, healthy childhood. As a pediatric chiropractor, Dr. James assists our youngest patients in living free from common ailments, hitting the proper growth and developmental milestones at the right times. He’s a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and Epic Pediatrics, with extensive training in caring for babies and children of all ages.

A Natural Approach to Healthier Kids

Children won’t usually complain of pain or headaches. When there is interference in the nervous system, however, a variety of other symptoms and disorders can result:

  • ADHD
  • Anger and frustration
  • Autism
  • Colic
  • Constipation
  • Ear infections
  • Latching issues
  • Sensory processing disorder

We’re experts in nervous system health. This master command system controls every function of the body, including how your child grows and develops. Slips and falls, crashes on bikes and the other usual childhood injuries are stress that affects the nervous system, which can result in sickness, disorders and countless other issues.

Understanding Your Child’s Needs

Dr. James and his wife, Jessica, who works at Thrive Family Chiropractic, LLC, have three children. One of their daughters had troubles with severe colic, so they understand the toll it takes on a family when a child is sick. We seek to help you get off the path of medical interventions and to natural care that allows kids to enjoy an abundant, vibrant childhood.

Getting Started

Thrive Family Chiropractic, LLC is designed with a family-friendly feel, including a kids’ area with a table, coloring books and toys. Our young patients love the fruit we have available and the colorful owl adjusting table just for them. Dr. James creates wonderful connections with each child, putting them at ease by playing and joking around with them.

He uses an extremely gentle technique, especially for newborns or infants. It’s about the same amount of pressure you’d use to test the ripeness of a tomato.

Seeing Fast Results

Every child’s nervous system is different and will respond differently. During childhood, we grow and develop more than in any other stage of life. Generally, kids respond extremely quickly to chiropractic care. We don’t guess, but instead, test with advanced Insight™ Subluxation Station technology and monitor their progress at regular intervals.
