Why Should I Put My Baby or Child in Chiropractic Care?

Children experience more slips, falls, hits, accidents, bruises, running, jumping, and activities in one week than adults experience in one year! The problem is, we leave all the damage that they do to the body, day after day, totally untreated. No prevention. No wellness care. We do nothing until they have painful and permanent musculoskeletal problems as an adult. And we can’t figure out why we have so much pain! This would be like eating food our whole lives and never brushing our teeth until we are seniors. By then we would have no teeth! This is obviously not the right health care decision. We need to care for our body before it becomes disabled.

In today’s world, the chances are higher than ever of our kids living to be 100 years old. If we continue to provide our musculoskeletal system with no care, no prevention, and go totally untreated, the chances of being in constant pain and needing walkers, canes, and wheelchairs for those years is also higher! We know this is not what you want for your kids. We want your kids to grow and live while experiencing an active healthy life!

We are often asked...

How soon after birth can my baby be adjusted?

Many patients will bring their newborn to our office on their way home from the hospital. Anyone who has ever witnessed childbirth will attest to the trauma that the head, neck and spine are put through. Making sure your baby’s spine is aligned and moving well is crucial in creating a healthy trajectory for growth and development.

Why do kids need chiropractic care?

Think about all the hundreds of falls and spills and accidents you experiences as a child, and growing up as a teenager. This is also why it’s important for kids of all ages to receive regular chiropractic care. Some of the most life-changing chiropractic adjustments happen in childhood. The care I provide helps children with ADHD, allergies, anxiety, asthma, autism, bed wetting, colic, constipation, ear infections, learning and behavioral issues, sensory processing disorders, and much more!

Is it safe for kids?

The answer is….. YES! Chiropractic care for infants, kids and patients of all ages has repeatedly been shown to be one of the safest forms of health care available. We are removing nerve interference with incredibly gently adjustments so that the body can heal itself.

What is a Chiropractic Adjustment and What Does It Do?

The most common therapeutic procedure performed by doctors of chiropractic is known as “spinal manipulation,” also called “chiropractic adjustment.” The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile – or restricted in their movement – as a result of a tissue injury. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for an extended period of time. In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function for the sufferer. Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal.

Doctors of chiropractic frequently treat individuals with neuromusculoskeletal complaints, such as headaches, joint pain, neck pain, low back pain and sciatica. Chiropractors also treat patients with osteoarthritis, spinal disc conditions, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, sprains, and strains. However, the scope of conditions that Doctors of chiropractic manage or provide care for is not limited to neuromusculoskeletal disorders. Chiropractors have the training to treat a variety of non-neuromusculoskeletal conditions such as: allergies, asthma, digestive disorders, otitis media (non-supportive) and other disorders as new research is developed.
