Dr. Pennella encourages parents to bring in children of all ages for a checkup. The very first misalignment usually occurs at birth, but many more occur throughout childhood, and most often they occur below our radar. Therefore it is vital that children begin their life with proper alignment, and receive regular check-ups.
It is because of this probability that some chiropractors may choose to seek additional training in family wellness post graduation. With 180 hours of study through the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association) Dr. Pennella earned her CACCP (Certification from the Academy Council of Chiropractic Pediatrics) in 2016. This designation is an advanced step in working with infertility, prenatal care, postnatal care, and pediatrics.
