Pediatric Chiropractor New York City

Dr. Kaminsky loves children and is fully capable of administering pediatric chiropractic care to newborn babies, infants, children of all ages, adolescents and young adults.

He is pursuing the diplomate status of Pediatric Chiropractor and frequently takes many continuing education seminars with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), even though in New York, a chiropractor under the scope of their license can treat children without any post graduate continuing education.

Dr. Kaminsky also implements gentle Craniosacral Therapy techniques with pediatric patients.

Healing With Craniosacral Therapy

Pediatric chiropractic care is a safe, gentle and non-invasive treatment emphasizing the innate self-healing capability of the child through the correct therapeutic touch from the practitioner. Dr. Kaminsky’s focus is the relationship of the nervous system between the spine, the head and the rest of the body.

Dr. Kaminsky does not “crack” the spine but uses gentle and safe techniques to deliver care stemming from on-going continuing education and many years of experience.

Understanding of a newborn’s/infant’s/child’s symptom(s) and condition(s) requires a full physical examination including a visual evaluation, palpation, checking of the head and spine, including alignment, muscle tone and full range of motion (ROM) of the neck, back, limbs and oral cavity / Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ).

A craniosacral System evaluation must not be overlooked, as it’s malfunction may be interfering with the development of the natural rhythmic patterns of the human body where physiological and neurological compromises may be coming from. Including sensory processing disorders and developmental delays.

Pediatric chiropractic care can help with:

  • Torticollis
  • Flat Head Syndrome
  • Consistent Crying
  • Tongue / Lip tie
  • Infantile Colic
  • Reflux
  • ADD / ADHD

  • Scoliosis Detection
  • Sensory Processing Disorder
  • TMJ Syndrome
  • Inability to thrive
  • Many other conditions

Child Developmental Milestones

Healthy child development includes nutrition, physical activity and an optimally functioning nervous system. As the spine develops, it is vulnerable to trauma from activities and events. The “arc of health” of children starts with birth trauma, the events of childhood, nutritional shortcomings, emotional coping, and many other types of stress placed on the emotional system and physical body. The objective is to minimize negative forces while strengthening the body’s capability to adapt to its environment. It’s important to note that symptoms (pain and malfunction) may not surface for years, injury to the nervous system can have a lifetime of damaging effects – left unaddressed.

A child’s nervous system function, the craniosacral rhythm, should be assessed after birth because of the straining effects of the birthing process. Studies show that numerous children who experience symptoms of colic, ear-infections, torticollis, developmental challenges, asthma and many more conditions, also have a compromised craniosacral mechanism and  spinal subluxations impairing their nervous system function.  Early detection and correction can avert further damage to the nervous system in the infancy and toddler years ahead. Otherwise an existing unbeknown impairment and subluxation can compound over time resulting in negative adaptations and compensating habits that lead to needed care and treatment later in life.

About Dr. Kaminsky & Craniosacral Therapy

Having a Chiropractic background since the year 2000, Dr. Kaminsky offers many methods of treatment with an emphasis on Craniosacral Therapy in NYC.

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a method focusing on the link between the cranium (head) and sacrum (the second to last bone at the base of your spine), scientifically proven to work in unison to pump fluid throughout the body, an unknown disruption of which can cause many health issues.  The craniosacral mechanism pumps vital fluid called cerebro-spinal fluid (CSF) through the body and in a sense energetically lubricates the joints, tissues, organs; basically all cells of the body. It is the driving force of all your body’s systems of function; including maintaining the tone of your muscles.

The Central Nervous System (brain and spinal cord) are surrounded with CSF generating energetic rhythmic impulses of fluid delicately pumping throughout your body’s parts “breathing” the movement of life. This measurable rhythm of moving fluid, like the heart rhythm, pulse rhythm, breathing rhythm is the foundational “blueprint” and primary principle of our real-time state of our health. 

Compromises of our rhythmic movements of fluid flow correlates to the impulse restrictions in the system which the body is unable to overcome or self-correct. This is the reason why we have “dis-ease”, symptoms, conditions, basically all ailments.  This is where the skill of an experienced craniosacral therapist becomes valuable.  By placing his or her hands on your body the practitioner can feel, detect, evaluate, and facilitate correction of these restrictive arrhythmic impulses.

The craniosacral therapist helps your rhythm restore and renew in compromised areas allowing for healing to take place of sensory, motor, musculoskeletal, neurological disorders, symptoms, conditions and pain.  To learn more, visit the other pages on this website.

Pediatric Chiropractic Care for Infants

Pediatric Chiropractic Care
for Infants

The developer of Craniosacral Therapy, Osteopath Dr. John Upledger said the following, “The inner wisdom of a fetus and an infant is every bit as intelligent as that of an adult. It knows what its body needs to correct its dysfunctions. It knows why those dysfunctions are present. It has a softer voice than the adult inner wisdom. Therefore, the Craniosacral Therapist must learn to listen more carefully. Once the connection is made, all the information you need for care will be forthcoming.”
