Job Description of a Pediatric Chiropractor


Job Description of a Pediatric Chiropractor

I have been a Pediatric Chiropractor for the past 15 years, I am a mother of 3 boys and I LOVE everyday of it. Oftern we will have some unique experience dealing with the toddler, kids babies , and parents that make each day unique and amazing. Patients comment often they are not sure how I deal with all the chaos each day, but honestly I love every minute of it. Seeing these little tiny humans grow, learn, develop and blossom into little people is a daily blessing. Seeing how their little minds work, and grow is a miracle. Here is a little spoof on my daily life at our clinic Family First Chiropractic and Wellness:

4.      Be comfortable with wiping noses, fingers, hands  and other areas of children other than mine
5.      I often do not leave work with clean clothes or hair- I often have baby or toddler “schmutz” somewhere on my clothing
6.      Has a ‘Bachelor of Science Degree’ in toddler negotiations
7.      Has a massive supplies of stickers in all cartoon categories- including Frozen, Sponge Bob, Deigo, Dora, Thomas the train, Minions, Cars, Princess and many many more
