Violette came to HHC with infant reflux. After 1-2 chiropractic adjustments, Violette was no longer a difficult, fussy baby. Mom did not realize how little Violette slept for a newborn, until after she started getting adjusted and began sleeping more, as a baby should! Mom stated, “I had no idea that reflux could be caused by nerve interference!”

“Tessa has been a chill, calm, happy, healthy, great sleeping baby ever since birth! She has been adjusted at Higher Health Chiropractic by doctors who specialize in Specific Pediatric Chiropractic care. I had no idea the baby stage could be so pleasant. No signs of colic, reflux or sleep issues. Higher Health gives a great family feel that we enjoy being a part of.”

  1. Dr. Jeff Gorbach at Gorbach Family Chiropractic is wonderful too! Great with babies and kids. Our boys love him!

  2. I would highly recommend Dr. Tim Grady at Grade-A Chiropractic. He has been working with kids of all ages for 10+ years! He helped me through both my pregnancies and he has been helping both my daughters since they were born.

  3. Dr Erik Kowalke at Higher Health Chiropractic! Everyone at the office is so friendly and passionate about caring for you. Their technique is the most gentle too. No scary twisting of my neck or back, and I still have great results.

  4. Andrea Gonzalez

    I strongly recommend Dr. Michelle Hartley at Michigan Family Chiropractic Centers in Wyoming, MI. She is amazing! She is one of only two chiropractors in Kent county that has certification of CACCP, which is advanced training for children and pregnant mommies. An amazing doctor with a passion for her field and patients.

  5. I highly recommend Jason Ross at Train Out Pain. He is the best I have ever seen (and I have seen quite a few different chiropractors over the years).
