Dr. Lotufo is a skilled chiropractor for kids and infants, and supports every stage in a child’s life from specific conditions to everyday wellness.
Start To Life
Your child is a whole human being when they enter the world. As such, they experience some of the same misalignments we do. This is in addition to symptoms unique to infants and children, such as misalignments during birth.
Chiropractic care gets your child off on the right foot on their journey to lifelong health and wellness.

A natural defense to what your children face daily
From the time your baby is born, they face natural stressors in their daily lives. Simply being born can be a stressful event. And, as they grow into toddlers and children, our little ones begin to juggle a lot of things–school, activities, friends, family and a growing body!
Chiropractic care supports the ever-developing body of a child no matter what stage in life they’re at. We uncover the root cause of symptoms as they appear, and encourage balance in their bodies structurally, emotionally and biochemically.
Through delicate methods created just for infants and children, including chiropractic, nutrition and more, we support your child’s quality of life. The result? A stable foundation to better handle whatever comes their way.
Gentle and effective treatments made just for kids
A child’s nervous system (made up of the brain and spinal cord) dictates all body functions (including the immune system, digestive system and much, much more).
Chiropractic care works to support the brain and spinal cord function, creating better functionality for the entire body.
Many parents want to know: How exactly do we work on children?
With an understanding of your child’s body and its needs, we use a very gentle touch to perform the necessary spinal corrections. We use the same force you would use to find out if a tomato were ripe, for example.
In conjunction with gentle manual adjustments, we often use an activator–a small, handheld device that delivers gentle force to the desired areas (for most, it feels like a light tap).
And sometimes chiropractic is just one part of our approach to your child’s wellness. Nutritional therapy is another way to balance a child’s body.
So is craniosacral therapy, which gently releases tension in the body and improves overall body function. Craniosacral feels like a head massage using pressure akin to the weight of a nickel. Gentle but effective!
Another kind of network for your child’s health
Chiropractic care is another kind of health “insurance” that provides preventative support for your child.
We’ve seen great success in chiropractic for children because their bodies are receptive to treatment at a different level than adults. That’s because kids don’t have years of bad postural habits, stress from work or toxic loads like adults do.
So what are some conditions that chiropractic can help with?
- General wellness
- Sprains, strains and pains
- Ear infections
- Immune support
- Sleep disruptions
