A number of parents in Charlottesville say their kids are healthier because of routine Chiropractic care.
Rose Hansen routinely brings her three year-old daughter Gweneth in for chiropractic treatment.
" In the past, Gweneth has had a muscle strain in her neck and just by them coming here, I can see the difference in the way they move,the way they feel" said Hansen.
More and more moms and dads are seeking the help of a chiropractor.
People who believe in the alternative treatment often use it as a medication-alternative, or just a way to prevent future health problems.
Parents that seek out kids chiropractors, like Dr. Brycen Hudock in Charlottesville, say they've seen the therapy treat muscle strains, to ear infections, and prevent illness.
"The things we hear back from parents are just phenomenal: said Dr. Hudock.
There is no popping involved, instead, gentle massage and pressure point therapy is used on kids as young as infants.
