KIDS & CHIROPRACTIC
Children are at the beginning of their path in life and it’s important to have them checked. We often forget that children have the same spine and nervous system as adults. Babies and kids of every age need regular adjustments too! Ask us about the benefits of chiropractic care for balance, wellness, and optimal development.
Chiropractic care can also help women during pregnancy. Many women have reported a more comfortable pregnancy, and higher quality labor and delivery after seeking pre-natal chiropractic care.
WHY DOES MY CHILD NEED A CHIROPRACTOR?
Like dentistry, early care prevents adulthood spinal problems and improves and/or maintains overall health and wellness during development. Why should children be under chiropractic care? The
spine is developing rapidly in the first 10 years of life. It is highly affected by the falls and injuries common in those years and the repetitive movements that occur the following eight years (backpacks, increased computer usage and poor posture). Like dentistry, many parents see the benefits of providing preventative care for their children and see this as an important role in their child's overall health and wellness.
SHOULD I BE WORRIED THAT IT WILL BE PAINFUL FOR MY CHILD?
Absolutely not! We use safe and gentle techniques adapted specifically to treat babies and children.
DOES MY CHILD NEED TO BE A CERTAIN AGE BEFORE RECEIVING CARE?
No, there is no minimum age for a child to have their first check-up or adjustment. The earlier the better - we've seen and treated babies as young as a few weeks old! The first trauma we all go through as human beings is the birth process; it can cause stress to the infant’s spine and may impair nerve function which can contribute to dysfunction. The best way to ensure healthy and optimal development for your baby or toddler, is to have a routine check-up by a trained chiropractor.
We commonly treat children with: Colic, Chronic Ear Infection, Asthma, Digestive Issues, Developmental Difficulties/Sensory Processing Disorders. These are just a few conditions we commonly see in our office. We also work with special needs children; conditions such as autism, ADHD, and cerebral palsy also benefit from chiropractic care.
