Is Chiropractic for Kids?

 

As children go through different stages of development physically, their bodies endure a lot of stress. Even though kids don't complain about aches and pains the way adults do, they still benefit from chiropractic adjustments to help maintain their health.

What most people don't know is that for kids, the earlier they can experience chiropractic attention, the more they'll benefit. Even during the birthing process, a baby's spine can be misaligned due to the intense pressure they receive as they are born. As they continue to develop, they may sleep in different positions, which may also contribute to misalignment over time. Young children in the toddler stage often fall or twist and strain their bodies as they learn to walk and explore.

We all know that kids enjoy watching TV and playing computer/video games. Most of the time, this means a child is sitting with poor posture for long periods of time. Hours of sports and games, wrestling and other activities mean stress on the spine and neck area. Children's bodies are designed to be resilient and they usually recover from small amounts of stress. But over time, consistence activities like long periods of sitting or carrying heavy items like backpacks can have serious repercussions on kids' spines.

Because of the amount of activities and exercise children are involved in, starting early with chiropractic care can help a young child develop with less discomfort.

Pediatric Care

Small children cannot communicate their discomfort to you like older kids can. When a baby is under stress or in pain, all they can do is cry. Ensure your child maintains a healthy nervous system and proper spinal development. As they grow, kids tend to act out more when issues with the spine are not treated. Things like colic, ear infections and ADHD can result from something as simple as a misalignment of the spine.

At the Chiropractic Rehab and Wellness Center, we can examine your child and determine the best way to treat them. Not only are our treatments gentle, safe, and non-invasive (no twisting or popping) they allow children to relax more. If you are concerned about your child's spinal health, call our team at 260-338-1700 today.
