Our gentle approach often provides life-changing results for families struggling with colicky infants or chronically sick kids to sensory and spectrum challenges. Our Doctors are Webster Certified, and have completed extensive post-doctoral training in neurologically focused pediatric chiropractic care. 

Pediatric chiropractic is essential for many babies and children.

Common reasons parents will bring their babies to our office are:

  • Colic
  • Constipation
  • Ear infections
  • Nursing/latching issues
  • Reflux
  • Sleep issues
  • Torticollis

There is a growing amount of evidence that indicates subtle spinal misalignments in newborns, as a result of in-utero constraint (improper positioning of baby in-utero) and/or birth strain, creates tension within their delicate nervous systems. This “tension” can result in a number of different symptoms, such as the ones listed above.

The role of the pediatric chiropractor is to gently assess and correct these tiny misalignments (using equally tiny pressure) to allow your baby’s body and nervous system to return to balance. Optimal health exists within a balanced nervous system.

Our gentle prenatal chiropractic techniques

Children and babies require a completely different type of adjustment than adults. The techniques used in pediatric chiropractic are gentle and do not involve any forceful movements. Instead, our team locates specific contact points at the areas of the spine indicated in your child’s exam, delivering gentle pressure to the needed area. Most babies sleep through their adjustments, it’s that gentle!

What to expect

Your first visit

Your child’s first visit to the office will begin with an introduction to our kids room, where our goal is for both you and your child to be able to relax and have a little fun together!

We will be able to perform a baseline assessment of your child’s posture, reflexes, and motor patterns through observation and play. Depending on your child’s unique needs, we may need to do a more in-depth analysis of their spine and nervous system using thermography, sEMG, and/or X-ray. We will always communicate clearly with both the child and the parent if any of these additional tools are needed.

A major part of your child’s first visit and exam is a detailed history, which we ask about in their intake paperwork, and will address if necessary during the exam. Our goal during your child’s first visit is to determine first if we can help, and then come up with a specific plan based on your child’s unique history and needs.

Your second visit and beyond

Your child’s second visit and beyond will consist of chiropractic adjustments based on their unique needs. We value the power of play as a healing modality, so your child’s appointments will take place in our kid’s room. We have specifically designed this room to have a wide range of activities and toys for children of all ages to be able to relax and enjoy their time in our office!

Another essential part of our pediatric chiropractic care is providing parents with all the information they need concerning health and wellness. From child nutrition and exercise to ADD/ADHD, and stress reduction, or anything else, we are committed to providing you with complete wellness education that gives you the answers you need!

What our patients are saying

Antoniotti Chiropractor was wonderful!! I took my 7 month old to see them and they were kind, gentle, honest and caring. They put us all at ease and made me feel like they really cared about the well being of my child and took the time to listen to all my concerns and come up with a plan. I would give them 100 stars if I could!

Heidi T.

So unbelievably thankful to have been referred to Dr. Kate! Such a welcoming environment. Myself and my boys (2yr old 2mo old) all enjoy our visits. HIGHLY RECOMMEND, will quickly feel like family after a single visit!! ☺️

Stacy L.

Worth every penny! My baby was having reflux, favoring one side of her head, and not sleeping. Dr. Kate was personable and seemed to know exactly how to help. She has such a warm and welcoming personality. She was very gentle with my 4-month-old. The office was very clean and well-kept. Her chiropractic knowledge of infants and children was very comforting.

Jayci T.

I've never had a bad adjustment. Dr Steve and Dr. Kate are fantastic people and very family oriented. My kids get adjusted here as well and I couldnt pick a better couple of people to help my family out. I recommend them any time I can! Very easy to make appointments and be seen on a regular basis or as needed.

Dr. Erika

The road to becoming a chiropractor has been a scenic but educational one. After my own incredible experience with chiropractic care, I moved to Dallas in 2013 to attend Parker University and begin the journey to serve others.
Upon graduating, I worked in a rehab based clinic located in Irving, TX which prepared me with significant clinical knowledge in addition to expanding my experience into nutrition, physical therapy, and a variety of other palliative modalities. 
When the stars aligned for me to move back to Kalamazoo, falling in stride along Dr. Kate and Dr. Steve was an easy transition.  Their passion for serving the community of Kalamazoo is contagious and motivating! 
I welcomed my son Max in 2015 and my daughter Amelia in 2016. They motivate me daily to make positive choices and look at the big picture, both at home and at work. 
My desire is to educate our patients and create a sense of autonomy and confidence when it comes to their health! I look forward to working with the incredible people of southwest Michigan – hope to see you in the office soon!

Dr. Steve

After graduating from Miami University in 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from the school of Kinesiology and Health, and double minor in Business and Coaching, I began a four-year chiropractic program at Logan College of Chiropractic in Chesterfield, Missouri outside of St. Louis. In addition to the required chiropractic curriculum, I completed classes and performed research in advanced biomechanics, functional rehabilitation, kinetic chain analysis, and musculoskeletal therapies. This extra-curricular education has given me an edge in treating patients, allowing me to identify dysfunctions often overlooked by other providers.

Upon graduation from Logan College of Chiropractic in 2011, I moved to Indianapolis and started my own practice, PEAK Chiropractic. During my experience of owning and operating PEAK, I gained invaluable experience on how to treat patients of all levels and how to run a successful chiropractic practice. So, when my uncle, Dr. David Antoniotti, called my wife, Dr. Kate Antoniotti, and me with the offer to buy, run, and continue the tradition of Antoniotti Chiropractic in Kalamazoo, saying “yes” was extremely easy.

In March of 2016 Dr. Kate and I welcomed our son, Leo, to the world. And in October of 2018, our daughter, Rose, was born, making us a family of four. 

It is an honor to be continuing my family’s 50-year tradition of chiropractic care in Kalamazoo and I look forward to seeing you in the office!

Dr. Kate

I have always been interested in health, fitness, and human potential. After going through my own personal health struggles in college, I became passionate about holistic and preventative healthcare. This led me to pursue a B.Sc. degree in Exercise Science & Kinesiology- with the ultimate goal of becoming a Chiropractor.

After graduating from Miami University, I moved to St. Louis, Missouri to attend Logan College of Chiropractic, where I earned my D.C. degree. While at Logan, I did additional studies in nutrition, pediatrics, and women’s health. It was during my four years in St. Louis, where I also discovered my love for yoga, and eventually became a yoga teacher (200-RYT).

Dr. Steve and I welcomed our son, Leo, to the world in March 2016. And then in October 2018 we welcomed our daughter, Rose, to the family. Becoming a mom has been a defining moment in my life, both personally and professionally.

With my background in chiropractic, yoga, nutrition, pediatrics and women’s health – I have focused my practice to specifically address the needs of Moms. I deeply care about the health and wellbeing of our children, and I strongly believe that we need healthy Moms in order to have healthy kids.

By directing my focus on pregnancy chiropractic care, post-partum wellness, and pediatric chiropractic – I am hopeful that I am doing my small part in improving the health of our community.
