Chiropractic Care for Infants and Children
Pediatric chiropractic care is a safe and natural health care alternative for infants, children and teenagers.
It’s never too young to start
Whether your child is suffering from a common childhood condition or you want to start them on a path of wellness, it is never too early or late to begin pediatric chiropractic care.

Pediatric chiropractic care is useful for a variety of childhood conditions including: earaches, headaches, sinus problems, colic, allergies, ADD, persistent crying, constipation, bed wetting, and growing pains. Chiropractors believe that it is important to take preventative measures to ensure proper childhood growth and development. Pediatric chiropractic is a great natural wellness option.

Infant and Child Chiropractic Care

The spines of infants and children are still undergoing the developmental process. When adjusting an infant, a chiropractor uses minimal force by applying only slight pressure over the bone that needs to be adjusted. As a child ages, and their spine continues to grow, a chiropractor may add a gentle push to their pressure to achieve the desired adjustment. Chiropractic care is safe for newborns to teenagers and beyond because chiropractors take special care to use only the force necessary for the age of the patient. Your chiropractor may also use a low force instrument to adjust your infant or child.


When your child first begins care, the chiropractor will try to uncover the root cause of your child’s problem, and then develop a plan to help correct that problem. Chiropractors are trained to look for spinal misalignments which are often the cause of a patient’s problem and symptoms. When the spine becomes subluxated, or misaligned, that puts pressure on surrounding nerves which can cause pain, organ imbalances, and muscle imbalances that can contribute to a patient’s symptoms. Through the detection and correction of spinal subluxations, the chiropractor will work towards helping your child obtain their optimum health.


Not only does chiropractic care help treat many childhood conditions, it also helps your child perform better on the field and in the classroom. Chiropractic care aims to maintain proper spinal alignment, which in return allows your nervous system to function at its highest level. When your child’s nervous system is functioning at its highest level, they are able to perform their best.


“Very friendly, professional, and make me feel safe! I was looking for a chiropractor who specialized in prenatal care when I was having back pain with my first child, and I am so happy to have found Dr. Brad. He helped me tremendously throughout my first pregnancy and now again throughout my second. Would highly recommend!”

“I cannot recommend Dr. Allison and Bakke Chiropractic enough! She has done an incredible job listening to my pain points, keeping me informed throughout each adjustment, and educating me on ways to improve my health - especially throughout the transition to working from home. The front desk staff is kind and attentive. The space is clean and sanitized. I know Bakke will always accommodate my ever-changing schedule with ease.”

“Dr. Kris Wakefield is the man. Being new to the Madison area, I needed to find a new chiropractor that could set me straight. After trying a clinic elsewhere in Sun Prairie and leaving unsatisfied, Bakke Chiropractic turned out to be the exact remedy I was searching for. Dr. Wakefield corrected my issue in fifteen minutes, whereas other clinics proposed three month treatment plans before I could expect relief.

He guided me through a few at-home stretched to help strengthen and maintain a few problematic neck and back muscles, and said he would be there whenever I needed an adjustment.”

“Dr. Phil is hands down the best chiropractor I have ever been to. I have a highly physical job that takes a toll on my body. But thanks to Dr. Phil I deal with less pain and feel better overall. Regular adjustments keep my body in tiptop condition. Besides being highly skilled, Dr. Phil is tremendously knowledgeable, compassionate, and personable. I would recommend his work to anyone.”

“I have had the opportunity to work with both Dr. Jen and Dr. Allison here at the Bakke Deforest clinic, and have to say they both are absolutely phenomenal to work with. Both of them were professional and helped me get back into top performance again. I try to recommend either of these two to any of my friends who complain of back pain.

I have also taken the opportunity to see the massage therapist at Bakke as well. It has been a little over a year since I used that service due to COVID, but I do plan to use that service again as soon as I can. They were one of the best messages I have.”
