Chiropractic care of children is becoming more and more common today. Dr. Alorna Dolan of Dolan Family Chiropractic in Aurora, IL specializes in the care of infants and children. After graduating from Logan College of Chiropractic, Dr. Alorna pursued her love of treating children by completing an additional 2 years of advanced training through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). She began practicing chiropractic in a pregnancy and pediatrics based office in the northwestern suburbs and began working with top pediatricians that recognized how valuable chiropractic care was in a child’s development. She currently works with some of the top pediatricians in the Aurora and Naperville area at Dolan Family Chiropractic.
Some of the more common conditions and injuries she treats with children are listed below.
- Allergies and sinus problems
- Sport related injuries
- Growing Pains
- Cranial Abnormalities
- Latching problems during breast feeding
Sometimes during the birth process, the baby’s head can become compressed or distorted in a process called molding in which the bones of the head overlap at the sutures causing misshaped heads. This is a normal process that must occur in order for the baby to pass through the birth canal during the delivery. If the head does not return to a normal shape within 7-10 days there could be cause for concern. Dr. Alorna Dolan specializes in the treatment of these malformations and uses a specific and gentle technique designed to guide the bones of the skull into their proper position without the use of excessive force or restrictive helmets. This technique is commonly referred to as Sacral Occipital Technique, SOT, or Craniopathy.
