Why Do Children Need Chiropractic Care?
Just like adults, children's bodies can become misaligned. This can occur due to birth injury, or daily activities. Misalignment can contribute to a wide variety of issues, including ADHD, colic, and ear infections.
Visiting a children's chiropractor is helpful even if your child is healthy. It supports proper growth and development, aids concentration, and improves sleep. Your chiropractor can also provide lifestyle and nutrition advice, which helps your child get the best start possible in life.
Is Pediatric Chiropractic Different from Chiropractic for Adults?
Yes, chiropractic for children does have some differences from adult chiropractic treatment. Children's bodies are still developing, so gentle techniques must be used. Pediatric chiropractors also undergo specialized training, so they know how to treat children of any age.
Conditions Improved By Pediatric Chiropractor
A pediatric chiropractor can help improve a wide range of issues. Unlike conventional medicine, there are no negative side effects associated with this treatment. Rather than treating the symptoms of a disease, chiropractors help restore the body's normal functioning, which allows it to heal.
Parents know that their baby is experiencing discomfort, gas, and fussiness. The hours of crying can be heartbreaking. The good news is that regular chiropractic visits can reduce colic by realigning the spine. Nutritional advice and baby massage can also be helpful.
Ear infections are a common problem for children. They are typically caused by fluid buildup in the ear. This can be caused by a birth injury or allergies that develop after birth. Chiropractic care can correct misalignment, which improves drainage. It also reduces allergy symptoms and boosts the immune system.
Children often have difficulty concentrating and hyperactivity. Chiropractic care can often reduce these symptoms with a spinal adjustment. The adjustment helps calm the nervous system, which is often overactive due to poor alignment.
When the alignment is corrected, children are calmer and find it easier to concentrate. Spinal adjustment also helps improve sleep, which may play a role in ADHD symptoms as well.
Reduced Injury Risk
When the body is properly aligned, it's less prone to injury. This is important if your child engages in sports. However, even daily activities, like walking or running, can lead to injury. You can reduce your child's risk of common injuries with regular chiropractic visits.
