Leading Pediatric Chiropractor in Omaha Nebraska
Most of us are aware of or have some degree of knowledge about what a chiropractor does, and some of us have paid a visit to our local chiropractor and have had one or two sessions with them. However, there is a large number of people who have never heard of a pediatric chiropractor and have no idea what they do unless they have children. Pediatric Chiropractic is a specialization that uses gentle methods on infants and children to realign their spine.
Since 1986 the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) has represented physicians who have specialized in treating pregnant women, their infants, and older children. Dr. Wiese, of Life Source Chiropractic, is a licensed pediatric chiropractor with years of experience you can trust.

What To Expect At Your First Visit
As a family oriented practice, we make sure your child has time to get acclimated to our office so they are comfortable. At the first examination, our pediatric chiropractor will look at the status of multiple vital physical systems such as your child’s spinal alignment, various reflexes, muscle tone, the nervous system and the pelvic position. Dr. Wiese uses a very gentle approach, using no invasive tools. You, as a parent, are present in the room while your child is being examined.
Once Dr. Wiese has completed his initial evaluation of your child, he’ll review the treatment plan he recommends in detail and go over any questions you may have.
Is Pediatric Chiropractic Treatment Safe Enough For Children?
Pediatric Chiropractic Treatment is extremely safe for children of all ages. Dr. Wiese completed a certification in pediatric chiropractic through the ICPA. As a parent himself, Dr. Wiese understands that some parents may be apprehensive bringing their infant or child in for chiropractic care. Rest assured, the pressure used on infants and children is very light and he demonstrates the pressure he’ll be applying to the child and parents to alleviate any fear.
Improves Quality of Life
Every infant is uniquely different; however, they all take daily falls as they are learning to walk, run, ride bikes, etc., which can cause misalignments of the spine. Even the birthing process can cause subluxations of the spine which affect the nervous system. By maintaining a healthy spine it allows the nervous system to do its job. Because of this we have found that pediatric chiropractic care often helps common childhood issues like these:
- Digestive problems
- Ear infections
- Sensory processing conditions
- Sleep problems
No pediatric chiropractor can claim to “cure” these conditions, but many parents have reported marked improvement in their infants and children after treatment.
