Resolution of Constipation with Chiropractic Care in Olympia Wa

Chiropractic is a different approach to health care, and another option for parents to find help for their kids without the use of drugs or surgery!

"Constipation is defined as infrequent and painful defecation, fecal incontinence, and abdominal pain.  Constipation is very common in pediatric patients with an approximate prevalence of 3% in the Western world.  Approximately 30% of children beyond puberty still struggle with constipation.  The medical approach for using behavioral therapy or laxative intake to care for an infant with constipation is questionable. Parents are seeking more natural, reliable options and alternative options are becoming a popular care option for children." 

"During her exam she really responded when Dr. Amy touched on her sacrum and low back, which controls digestion. She performed several adjustments on her as well and it's like the floodgates have opened! Now she "eliminates" 3-5 times a day, regardless of what she eats! " -Oly Family Chiropractic Patient Testimonial
