Pediatric Care Fort Myers
A child's nervous system is just like an adult's – it controls and regulates all the other systems in their growing body. From blood flow to brain function and bone growth, the nervous system plays a significant role in ensuring that the body is working and healthy. Stress and misalignment of the spine can negatively impact your child's overall health, behavior, and development.
Stress and trauma to the body and spine can begin with the birthing process. It is easy for an infant's spines to become misaligned from the intense pressure involved with birth, both natural and Cesarean. Unfortunately, other than crying, babies have no other way of communicating their pain and what is causing the pain. Throughout the infant stage, babies may sleep in awkward positions or occasionally take a tumble. And as they become children, they grow into toddlers who strain while learning to crawl and walk.
Luckily, their bodies are very resilient and can take a lot of force, though these injuries can develop into patterns of movement that can cause a child's bones to misalign over time. Chiropractic care is entirely safe for children of all ages, and our chiropractic clinic understands the needs of children.

How Pediatric Care Works
Chiropractic treatments for a child begin with an extensive examination to determine the exact issue and the best treatment route. Even if your child isn't old enough to communicate, or is shy, our chiropractor has the skills to work with them to find out precisely what is bothering them before proceeding with treatment.
Gentle and non-invasive adjustments made to the spine will help children become relaxed, and most children even fall asleep after their treatment is over. Our team at Straight To Health Center has experience providing chiropractic care for children, and we understand that children's bodies are quite different compared to adults.
As a parent, you want to protect your child from pain and sickness, and with our chiropractic treatment, we'll be able to help correct underlying issues before they affect development. These adjustments provide support for a pain-free and positive childhood.

What Our Patients Are Saying
Listen to our patients share their experiences and find out why we are the top-rated chiropractic clinic in the Fort Myers area.
Ever since I have had Sciatica, Straight to Health has been able to make me pain free for months at a time. Whenever it comes back, and it does, I'll call for an appointment and get a few more treatments and I am good to go. Dr. Zapille and her staff are just wonderful, they make you feel better just because of their warm welcome and attitude.
Anyone who has been in the pain from Sciatica knows how left alone and helpless it makes you feel. Knowing that Dr. Zapille is there whenever I need her is just awesome. She even has come into the office when they were closed, just to help me with my pain so I did not have to wait another day.
Dr. Zappile was immediately able to adjust my sore neck after nearly six months without proper treatment here in SW Florida. She also worked on a chronic condition, sciatica, and I'm functioning much better after treatments.
They are the best in SW Florida!
Great reviews prompted me to go to this chiropractor’s office. Drove by on a Saturday to check out the location. Met by doctors in the parking lot. Both very pleasant and Dr Zappile’s smile is eye catching. I went in to see her for my first appointment. I suffered a minor injury after falling out of a chair that rolled from underneath me. My hamstrings and my lower back was causing a problem that had not resolved. My first treatment I must say that I’m impressed. No longer feeling back of my legs tight and pulling on my back first thing in the morning. Her treatment recommendations are working as early as my first visit. I look forward to continuing my treatment regimen. I would highly recommend this office for your chiropractor needs. Thank you so much be I’m happy we met.
