The title of Pediatric Chiropractor is designated to a Chiropractor with post-graduate training with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). This requires advanced training, research and examination by fellow Pediatric chiropractors.
Currently Dr. Kaminsky is pursuing the diplomate status of Pediatric Chiropractor and has already taken many continuing education seminars towards it with the ICPA. In New York, a chiropractor, under the scope of their license, can treat children without any post graduate continuing education.
He loves children and is fully capable of administering pediatric chiropractic care to newborn babies, infants, children of all ages, adolescents and young adults.
Dr. Kaminsky has also taken Craniosacral Therapy for Pediatrics continuing education seminars with the Upledger Institute.
Craniosacral Therapy can be applied for both Wellness care and Symptom care.
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 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.
Pediatric chiropractic care is a safe, gentle, non-invasive treatment emphasizing the proper alignment of the spinal column. Dr. Kaminsky’s focus is the relationship between the spine, the head and the nervous system. Movement patterns can be extremely useful in the evaluation of a newborn’s/infant’s/child’s developmental progress. Interference with the development of rhythmic patterns can arise from physiological and neurological compromises, including sensory processing disorders and energetic compromises within the chakras and meridian points. Valuable information can be gleaned from the observation of a child’s movement patterns as they relate to his/her chronological age pediatric chiropractic care can help with:
- Infantile Colic
- ADD / ADHD
- Allergies/Sinus Issues/Asthma
- Bed Wetting
- Constipation/Digestive Issues
- Headaches / Migraines
- Chronic Ear Infections
- Scoliosis Detection and Treatment
- Flat Head Syndrome
- Sensory Processing Disorder
- TMJ Syndrome
- Many more

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 and Pranic Healing 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.
