I will also recommend Airrosti. They are not chiropractors in the traditional sense. They tend to focus on soft tissue injuries and have a lot of athletes as patients. With athletes, they will give them treatment that will get them back on their feet and competing as quick as possible, as opposed to most doctors that tell you to take ibuprofen and call them next week if it still hurts. I don't know how they will handle your daughter's back issue, but I have gone myself and my daughter has visited them several times for muscle sprains. I will tell you, their treatment hurts! During their treatment, it almost hurts more than the injury itself. But it will get you up and about quickly.

Im a little biased i guess, buy my ex is a Physical Therapist and would highly advise against a Chiro.

If her muscles are sore, try a heating pad. Im a new champion of heating pads when i hurt my back, theyre awesome.

I too would recommend a Pediatrician and then some PT.

Agreed. Highly advise against a Chiropractor. Their title of "Dr." is a misnomer.

Not all chiropractors are created equal.

I wouldn't take a 12 year old to a chiropractor. It's not that I dont trust them it's because they generally dont have kids as patients.

I think you'd be better off finding a pediatrician you can trust.

Anyone with a doctorate has the right be be called doctor. The original doctors had PhDs. It was a term originally used for academics, not physicians.

So in a clinical setting, a Chiro should be allowed to call themselves Doctor?

Well as many know doctors aren't much help for back problems but she seemed ok so I just let it go. Now these past few weeks she is always complaining her back hurts. I know she needs to see a chiropractor but haven't been to one here. When I look nothing catches my attention, just names everywhere. The few I called are speedy and take insurance but seem to still be spendy with insurance. Still, at this point I just need to get her seen. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!!
May be late to the party, but take her to Dr. Hansen at Maximized Living. They do a lot of work on young folk and have a very common sense approach to healing, etc. They're located at West Avenue and Interpark. Nice facility. Relates well to kids. Great staff.

If they aren't working with physicians, then there shouldn't be a problem. Psychologists are called doctors.
