Pediatric Chiropractor, Dr. Lester Offers Chiropractic Care for Children in the Hudson Valley

Watching our children grow and thrive is one of life’s greatest joys. An increasing number of Hudson Valley families are finding that one way to help support their children’s growth and development—and maintain the entire family’s health and well being—is through regular visits to New Paltz family and pediatric chiropractor Dr. David Lester.

Alternative Treatment to Drugs

Often, parents seeking natural remedies for common childhood complaints, including colic, chronic ear infections, sleep disturbances, allergies, colds, sore throats, asthma, tonsillitis, bedwetting, stomachaches, or injuries, will turn to a pediatric chiropractor. However, Dr. Lester does not focus on healing specific illnesses or injuries.

Instead, his work allows the natural healing power of the body to flourish through the release of deep musculoskeletal and nervous systems tension. Dr. Lester’s gentle, no force methods, targeted to each stage of development and individual, addresses misalignments of the vertebrae.

These misalignments may irritate the nerve roots and blood vessels that branch off from the spinal cord between each vertebrae, causing pain and dysfunction in muscle, lymphatic, and organ tissue, as well as neurological imbalances in normal body processes.

Support for Growing Children

The normal, daily activities of a growing infant—learning to hold up his or her head, sit, crawl, and walk—can all affect spinal alignment. Injuries especially can result in spinal misalignment and impair nervous system control of other systems in the body, such as the circulatory, respiratory, digestive, hormonal, eliminative and immune system.

As children become more active, bike riding, gymnastics, and other sports activities, can result in small yet significant spinal misalignments that, if neglected during periods of rapid growth, may lead to more serious problems later in life. Periodic adjustments for even the youngest family members can help maintain life-long health.
