Pediatric Chiropractor in Moon Twp., PA: Chiropractors have been performing adjustments on children and infants for more than one hundred years! Many childhood ailments respond to chiropractic care.
This safe, non-invasive procedure involves the manipulation of the body to place the vertebrae in the correct positions in the spinal column. Chiropractic is based on the important relationship between the spine and the nervous system. Spinal dysfunctions caused by subluxations can alter how the body functions and affect health.

When children come into this world, their bodies will be subjected to various kinds of stress. Even at birth, infants can be susceptible to spinal misalignment due to fetal positions in utero, a slow birth or a c-section. Some newborn health complaints such as colic, reflux, breastfeeding difficulties, sleep disturbances, allergic reactions, and chronic infections can sometimes be traced to nervous system irritation caused by spinal and cranial misalignments.
As a child develops, things can happen along the way. Poor posture, falls, injuries during athletic activities, can all affect how the body properly develops if there are subluxations. Not only that, chiropractic care helps alleviate some common behavioral and mental issues!
Naturally Ensure Your Child is Happy and Healthy
The first thing a chiropractor will do is to conduct a thorough history of your child’s health and any complaints. This is followed by a complete physical examination of the child’s spine. Our chiropractors are trained to evaluate pediatric spinal problems, and will use gentle, specific skills to find and adjust any involved spinal areas.
Spinal adjustments for infants and young children involve a gentle fingertip pressure to correct spinal misalignments. This helps restore mobility to spinal joints. A child’s spine generally responds faster compared to an adult’s spine. The actual number of adjustments will vary depending on many factors such as the length of time the problem has been present.

Such wonderful care, every visit! I started coming here for adjustments during my pregnancy. My back and sciatic nerve pain were unbearable. I literally could barely walk when I first came in. If it weren’t for Drs. Kristal, Gary, & Curtis, & I don’t know how I would have made it through the pregnancy without being confined to bedrest. Thank you all for such great continued care!
I have a major back anomaly and am avoiding surgery by going to Weinstein Chiropractic. Thank goodness my daughter found them through Groupon! Dr. Kristal knows how to realign not only my spine, but is also working on my ligaments and muscles. I can now walk on the treadmill and ride a bike, which is something I wasn’t able to do a year ago. Thank goodness for these dedicated docs!
I was experiencing excruciating pain in my lower back which was radiating down my legs. This was after having surgery that was supposed to relieve my pain and suffering. Often the only way I could get relief was to lie flat on my back on the floor. I began to think about going to see Dr. Weinstein, since a friend had highly recommended him to me. Unfortunately, I had an irrational fear and distrust of chiropractors.
When I finally overcame my fear and reluctance and decided to see Dr. Weinstein, I was very nervous. However, his calm demeanor and caring manner soon put me at ease. What was really amazing about my first visit with Dr. Weinstein was how much time he and his staff spent with me. They took a thorough and complete medical history, asked lots of questions about my health problems and gave me a very thorough exam both hands on and with diagnostic equipment.
I have to admit that I was very scared when Dr. Weinstein first adjusted me. I did not even want to allow him to adjust my cervical spine because of a congenital condition I have which involves my brain and cervical spine. Dr. Weinstein told me that if I let him adjust me on a regular basis, I would no longer need to take the medication that I was then taking for my condition. I politely listened to him but did not believe him. At the time, I was taking four pills a day. After treating with Dr. Weinstein on a regular basis, I quit taking that medication entirely.
I have now been treating with Dr. Weinstein for over ten years. To say that Dr. Weinstein has helped me would be a tremendous understatement. He has helped me work through the pain of auto accidents and the pains and strains that come when you are over 60 years old and shovel too much snow, or lift too much weight. Thanks to Dr. Weinstein, I now work out at the gym, ride bike trails and I am able to sit at my desk at work for hours when the need arises.
Go see Dr. Weinstein. Get adjusted. All you have to lose is your pain.
