The Importance of Chiropractic Care for Kids
People who are used to thinking of chiropractic care as a treatment for age-related joint stiffness or auto accident injuries may wonder why children might need this form of treatment. Keep in mind that one of the most traumatic journeys we take in life is the initial passage through the womb that brings us into the world. Even newborns may have a spinal misalignment or other joint alignment problem that needs immediate correction. Fortunately, the techniques we use are so gentle that we can provide the necessary chiropractic care for kids who are just a few hours old.
Babies may continue to benefit from chiropractic evaluations and adjustments as they start to crawl and toddle their way through their environment. It's important to correct the resulting alignment issues as early as possible. Even a small misalignment can affect a child's growth and development.
School-age kids certainly put their musculoskeletal systems through a lot of abuse. From heavy, unbalanced backpacks to sports injuries and playground impacts, those growing bodies are likely to need ongoing help to prevent chronic muscle pain and joint problems from accumulating. Scoliosis, an abnormal curvature of the spine, also becomes a threat during these years.
Gentle Adjustments and a Lifetime of Guidance
Our pediatric chiropractic techniques are gentle enough to cause kids no pain and pose no danger to their well-being. We recommend periodic spinal "checkups" so we can evaluate your children's alignment and function, detecting and fixing any little problems before they can make a major impact on growth, development, and comfort. Kids also benefit from these checkups by becoming familiar with chiropractic care as a safe, effective treatment method. In addition to performing "back to school" exams and screening for scoliosis, we can instruct your kids on the best practices regarding everyday posture, backpack usage, and sports safety.
