5 Must-Haves for Choosing the Right Chiropractor

Dr. Sharhae MatousekMoms and dads naturally want what’s best for their children, from ensuring they get proper nutrition, sound sleep, and regular exercise to providing a safe and nurturing environment so they can thrive. When it comes to chiropractic care for your kiddo, you also want to find the best chiropractor to address their healthcare needs.

Here are five things to look for when selecting a chiropractor for your child:

Has Advanced Pediatric Education & Training

When choosing a pediatric chiropractor for your child, you want a doctor who has gone above and beyond in terms of education and advanced training. Eden Prairie chiropractor Dr. ShaRhae Matousek puts in at least 80-100 hours per year in ongoing training, ensuring she’s always up-to-date with the latest advancements in pediatric chiropractic care—crucial for providing exceptional care to your kids. She also received her Fellowship with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association in 2002.

Possesses a High Level of Clinical Experience

At Real Health Chiropractic Clinic, we also want to assure you that it’s not just about the number of years we’ve been around—it’s about the quality of experience we bring to the adjusting table. With nearly 25 years of experience and a certification in pediatrics from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), Dr. Matousek is an expert in pediatric chiropractic care.

She has undergone rigorous training and specialized programs, focusing on addressing the unique challenges your child and other kiddos often face. Dr. Matousek can help infants with issues like colic and nursing difficulties, address ear infections, constipation, and other challenges in toddlers, and provide care for pre-teens and teens struggling with ADHD, autism, anxiety, and more.

Incorporates Advanced Neurological Examinations

Is your pediatric chiropractor using Insight Subluxation System™? This advanced scanning technology allows our chiropractor to safely and effectively assess the intricate functions of your child’s central and autonomic nervous systems.

The NueroThermal, EMG, and HRV scans included in this technology give Dr. Matousek invaluable insights that contribute to a more comprehensive understanding of your child’s health. She uses the information from the scans to craft personalized care plans for her pediatric patients.

Uses an Array of Adjusting Techniques

Just as every fingerprint in the world differs, every child we see is a unique masterpiece worthy of the best care. That’s why our doctor has dedicated time and expertise to master various chiropractic techniques. These include Activator Methods™, Diversified, Cranio-Sacral work, extremities, and the Webster Technique.

Dr. Matousek will select the right techniques tailored to your child’s specific needs rather than relying on personal preference. To provide the best possible outcome, she’ll also consider factors like birth trauma, exposure to toxins, illnesses, and emotional stress that contribute to each child’s case history. Then she will customize the adjusting technique to your child’s needs.

Recommends a Customized Care Plan

When it comes to your child’s care, cookie-cutter chiropractic just doesn’t cut it. We never take a one-size-fits-all approach when addressing your little one’s healthcare needs. Our chiropractor crafts care plans that are backed by science to ensure your child gets the correct adjustments at the right times, fostering positive, lasting neurological changes.
