Pregnancy & Pediatrics
"Healthy Kids Become Healthy Adults"
As mom's body changes and prepares to deliver a beautiful new baby, that change is most likely taking a heavy toll on mom not only physically but mentally as well. Dr. Arnold prides himself on keeping up on the latest research and techniques to provide the best care for mom-to-be.
With all of the changes in hormones and posture due to a growing belly, its no wonder that low back pain is one of the leading complaints in pregnant women. One collaborative chiropractic and medical study revealed that 75% of pregnant chiropractic care patients experienced less pain and overall discomfort throughout the pregnancy process(1).
Dr. Arnold is also proudly certified in the Webster Technique which is a perinatal specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment for mothers-to-be both during and after pregnancy. With the Webster technique, we can reduce nervous system stress and balance pelvic muscles and ligaments so the body can be optimally prepared for birth.

Dr. Arnold has a special place in his heart when it comes to the health of our youth. As a child, he suffered from asthma, skin sensitivities, and was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD). He understands that our world today is filled with constant distractions and stresses for our youth. Phones, social media, and video games are plaguing the younger generations with not only a future of poor posture but over-stimulation and mental stress as well. It's no wonder that about 1 out of every 20 kids in the US have been prescribed ADHD medication.
Our passion is helping kids today grow up healthy and well with as little medication and surgeries as possible. We know that kids will be kids and they are really good at playing, running, climbing, falling and getting bumps and bruises. However, what they are not good at is communicating how they are feeling. At Turning Point Chiropractic we focus on function over feeling, we approach a child's nervous system from a measure of function because it plays a vital role in their overall health as well as neurological development.
We assess all children for misalignments (subluxations) in the spine that may be caused by stresses whether they are physical, chemical, or mental. Then with every gentle and non-invasive adjustment, we are restoring the child's nervous system back to its optimal functionality.
