Just as parents take their children to the dentist for regular check-ups, so should parents bring their children to chiropractors to have a spinal development check. Many spinal problems seen in adults begin in childhood. Proper spinal hygiene is an important key to better health. Regular chiropractic checkups are especially beneficial as head support and natural spinal curves are established. The birth process can stress a still-developing spine. The resulting irritation to the nervous system can be the cause of many newborn health complaints. Colic, unexplained crying, ear infections, chronic colds, poor appetite, breathing problems, and allergic reactions can often be traced to nervous system dysfunction caused by a malfunctioning spine. Head support, followed by crawling, and a baby’s first few steps should be followed by chiropractic checkups. If neglected, the bumps and falls during this period of rapid growth may lead to serious spinal deformities later in life. This can set the stage for scoliosis, “growing pains,” and a weakened immune system response. Chiropractic adjusting techniques are modified to fit a child’s size, weight, and unique spinal problem. Children enjoy their adjustments. Parents often report that their children seem healthier than other kids their age. Dr. Winchell’s gentle method of chiropractic adjustment using the Activator adjusting tool is great for kids. It’s completely painless, and there are no scary “popping” sounds commonly associated with manual adjustments. Our office is very kid-friendly; we thoroughly enjoy our young patients. We believe it is so important to start kids off with a healthy spine, we offer children under 15 years old 1/2 off our already affordable rates.

My truck wasn’t the only thing damaged in my accident. My back and neck were too. Dr. Winchell fixed me good as new.
I can’t believe I suffered with migraines for so many years, when help was just up the street. Thanks!!
Ten years ago today, I came to you in a wheel chair, wrapped in a beach towel, barely able to move. You put me back together and the next day..I walked again. I was afraid I would never dance a gain, but I have been dancing now for ten years. Thank you!
Arthritis in my hands bothered me for many years. Doctor after doctor would try different treatments, but nothing worked long term. I would feel better for a while, but that pain always came back. I had never been to a chiropractor before, but a friend told me to see Dr. Winchell. Since I could see how much he had helped her, I decided to give Dr. Winchell try. I’m so glad I did. I’m now gardening again (that’s right, at 86 years old).
I’m going to be a father in May, and Dr. Winchell gave my child its first present…a healthy father!!! I was told by my medical doctors that I was permanently disabled and lived crippled for 2 1/2 years. After 2 months with Dr. Winchell, I don’t live in pain anymore.
No one can understand the devastation of chronic pain until they experience it. My life was a mess and out-of-control. Dr. Winchell truly saved my life. Thank you for being there for me.
He saved me from back surgery!
I have been a chiropractor for over 10 years. Dr. Winchell is my doctor. I drive over 160 miles roundtrip to see him, he is the best
