Optilife Pediatric Chiropractor Dr. Amanda Metzger and Dr. Rachel Wroblewski use the Insights CLA system to fully evaluate each child to see how well their muscles and spinal alignment are working.  Once a complete pedicatric evaluation is completed, Dr. Amanda uses gentle adjustment techniques using gentle manual adjustments, an Activator,  and a drop table.  These techniques ensure the pediatric chiropractic adjustment is gentle and pain free.

When requested our therapy dogs can help out Dr. Amanda to make sure the kids have fun during thier visit.

Whether born naturally or via C-section your baby endures traumatic stresses to his/her spine and spinal cord while coming into this world. Chiropractic care is very important for infants and children of all ages as they grow.

“We started seeing Dr Amanda as a pediatric chiropractor and we had immediate results for our 18 month old. She was throwing up when crying, not sleeping, and constipated. After the first visit she slept longer than she had since a newborn. After the second she was having regular bowel movements and slept through the night. It was like magic!! The adjustments are easy and she is happy during them as Dr Amanda checks baby while on your lap so they are happy. The office staff is always friendly and the office is clean. If you are struggling with your child I highly recommend!!.”
