Pediatric Chiropractor in San Antonio TX: Chiropractors have been performing adjustments on children and infants for more than one hundred years! Many childhood ailments respond to chiropractic care. This safe, non-invasive procedure involves the manipulation of the body to place the vertebrae in the correct positions in the spinal column. Chiropractic is based on the important relationship between the spine and the nervous system. Spinal dysfunctions caused by subluxations can alter how the body functions and affect health.
When children come into this world, their bodies will be subjected to various kinds of stress. Even at birth, infants can be susceptible to spinal misalignment due to fetal positions in utero, a slow birth or a c-section. Also as a child develops, things can happen along the way. Poor posture, falls, injuries during athletic activities, can all affect how the body properly develops if there are subluxations.
Naturally Ensure Your Child is Happy and Healthy
The first thing a chiropractor will do is to conduct a thorough history of your child’s health and any complaints. This is followed by a complete physical examination of the child’s spine. Our chiropractors are trained to evaluate pediatric spinal problems, and will use gentle, specific skills to find and adjust any involved spinal areas.
Spinal adjustments for infants and young children involve a gentle fingertip pressure to correct spinal misalignments. This helps restore mobility to spinal joints. A child’s spine generally responds faster compared to an adult’s spine. The actual number of adjustments will vary depending on many factors such as the length of time the problem has been present.

Thank You so much to Dr. Charlie Oliver & staff for getting me walking again. I appreciated the one on one time with Dr. Oliver to develop a plan specifically formulated to help my specific needs. I literally hobbled into his office two days ago in excruciating pain that I felt was going to affect my ability to continue to work as a massage therapist. After he took some X-rays and did an extensive physical evaluation and evaluated my X-rays he sat down and spoke candidly with me and devised a plan for me to get me back on track and on the road to recovery without surgery. He took me aside and provided me with a treatment that very same day because he couldn’t bear to see me hobble out of his door. He wasn’t looking for a way to mask my pain but, to find the source of my pain and correct it.
I would recommend coming here! I have had headaches for over a decade. I would go to doctor after doctor and explain to them that I don’t simply want pills thrown at the problem. I never felt listened to. I didn’t feel like these doctors were on my side. They never seemed to want to help me find the problem, instead they just wanted to help me manage the symptoms. I don’t believe it’s natural or right to be in pain every day of your life, so managing the symptoms was not a desirable solution for me. Then I came across Charles Oliver and his staff. He immediately caught my attention when he talked to me about getting to the root of the problem. I love his holistic approach. And the best part is that he is listening to me. I finally feel like I have someone rooting for me and actively helping me heal rather than just managing my symptoms. He did a comprehensive evaluation and x-rays. He showed me step-by-step what was wrong and how it could be fixed. I absolutely love his approach. Thank you so much Charles Oliver and staff! I would 100% recommend coming to this business. In fact, I already have told friends and family how much this is helping me and I’ve recommended they make appointments as well.
I also talked to Dr. Oliver about my knee pain. He has been treating the pain I’ve had in my left knee. I’ve had the pain for 2.5 years. It got to the point where I had to wear a knee brace the majority of the time because it hurt to walk. Since Dr. Oliver has been treating my knee the pain is gone. It is uncomfortable from time to time but it is no longer painful. During my knee treatment there was even a time I was not able to go back to the chiropractor for a month. During that month away from treatment my knee pain did not return. I am in awe at how quickly he is able to make pain go away with his treatments.
First visit. So far so good. Dr was very direct on what he could to and could not do. Told him my main concern was cost, he said he understood and could work with me. Front desk staff very friendly. Took me on a brief tour, offered water and was concerned of my needs. For a first visit I would say it was a excellent experience.
I originally found Dr. Oliver when I was looking for someone to help me with ongoing foot issues. As a marching band director I had been referred to a podiatrist and told that I might be looking at surgery. I wasn’t convinced and wanted to try dealing with any underlying issues first so I went looking for a chiropractor who was also a physical therapist. I was convinced that spinal alignment was part of the issue and that the podiatrist would send me to PT first.
When I met with Dr. Oliver and he evaluated my issue he was very honest that he had not treated this particular issue before and that he was willing to work through a course of treatment to get my hip issues straightened out and work on my feet at the same time and see what we could do. That course of treatment was successful and I went on my merry way very happy to have avoided surgery.
Three years later I’m back and addressing a different set of issues that I have been ignoring for a long time. By the time I got to Dr. Oliver I was in so much pain that I was struggling to do my job. Dr. Oliver not only evaluated my structural condition but my overall nutrition and health. He laid out a plan for treatment that addressed not just the underlying structural issues but also helped me to identify the nutritional issues and other health issues that I need to be addressing. We’re well into my treatment plan and I can honestly say that I feel better than I have in years. I’m committed to doing what I need to to feel better and so thankful to find Dr. Oliver and his staff!
First visit for cronic, acute back pain. Dr. Oliver was able to determine the root cause of the pain which, I must say, other doctors I’ve seen hadn’t even attempted to find.
I have spondylolesthesis (a forward shifting of a vertebrae) which allows diminished mobility and flexibility because of the level of constant pain. Yes, the shift caused discs to rupture and touch a nerve. The nerve (being only the transmitting link to the brain for feeling) however, goes to something else telling the nerve what to feel.
That “something else” is the CAUSE of the pain. In my case, it is a specific muscle attached to the spine.
I was referred to Dr. Oliver after a neck injury. I had never endured such pain to my neck to where I couldn’t lift a grocery bag. NO matter what my posture was (sitting, standing, laying down), I was in lots of pain. When I called I was concerned they wouldn’t have time to fit me in. Once I explained my situation and pain they had me wait a day for swelling to go down then to come in the next day. I could tell that he “fit” me in cause he was very busy. He still took the time to give me a full evaluation, The staff was amazing and friendly too, Even though I was in pain they could still make you smile. After a week of following Dr. Oliver’s instructions, I was back to normal! I would refer him to any one!!! Thank you Dr. Oliver and Staff
When I first met Dr. Oliver, I was suffering from sharp pain that traveled down my arms from my neck. After a diagnosis and commitment to try to get better, I began a full regimen of exercise and adjustments. I found the information about the seriousness of my condition very informative and encouraging. Dr. Oliver not only explained the treatments that were going to take place, but gave me the opportunity to ask questions without pressure. It wasn’t long after the meeting and a scheduled plan of treatment that I had my first visit with Dr. Charles Oliver. I have become a believer that with a commitment to doing the prescribed exercises and getting regular adjustments, that you can reverse your back pain and feel normal again. After some weeks of treatment, I can honestly state that the pain is gone from my neck to my shoulders. I have also noticed that my sitting posture is less cumbersome and my overall bodily flexibility has improved by 100%. Everyone assisting the doctor does a great job with stretching and massage. Everyone is very helpful and makes sure I always have the best experience possible. So much so that I don’t want to leave! And they work with me when it comes to scheduling since I have to rearrange a lot of times as to when I can come in. I’m glad I went and grateful for the care and treatment from Dr. Oliver and the staff at Comprehensive. Overall, signing up for regular chiropractic appointments was the push that I needed to propel me into the total package of healthy living. Comprehensive Chiropractic is my one stop shop for healthy living. I have a community to learn with, a community to challenge me, and a committed team to help me reach my health goals.
Doctor Oliver and his staff are wonderful! I would recommend him to everyone.
BEST CHIRO / PHYSICAL THERAPIST I’ve ever been to!!! And I mean that! I have been seeing Chiropractors for over 40 years with neck and back issues. I had severe chronic pain in the right side of my neck that would be so debilitating I couldn’t even turn my head. I’d see a Chiro – get it adjusted only to have to return two days later for another “fix”.
Then I was referred to Dr. Oliver by my Primary Care Physician for IT Band pain (left hip down the leg). After the initial evaluation, he talked to me about the treatment and what to expect. After a few weeks of this treatment by him and his AMAZING staff of therapists, I was able to start lifting weights in the gym again and resume my regular strength training workouts!
I also talked to Dr. Oliver about my chronic neck pain and my frequent lower back pain. After completing a long questionnaire and x-rays, my treatment plan began. The treatment plan involved a nutritional consultation, a detox/cleanse and many new PT techniques to re-align my spine and straighten the very obvious curve in my neck. These exercises have also increased strength in my neck muscles and helped improve my posture significantly. The pain is now GONE!!! When I have a flare, it’s usually because of my diet and I have learned what to avoid.
I am now on a maintenance schedule with Dr. Oliver and his wonderful staff twice a month. I enjoy the happy and friendly atmosphere of his office and brag about him with everyone who needs Chiropractic care.
I you are looking for a Chiropractor / Therapist that is knowledgeable about total health and fitness, then Dr. Charlie Oliver is the man for you!!
