Many people tend to think of adults who have been in car accidents or are suffering due to a lifetime of heavy labor when they think of people who need chiropractic care. The truth is, that people of all ages can experience events that disrupt the body’s natural alignment. Chiropractic care for children has been around for decades, and it's an effective way to ensure that your child recovers from an accident or injury and grows up to become a healthy adult.
Injuries and Kids
Kids tend to move a lot more than adults do. While exercise and activities such as sports can be great for them, it also increases their risk of being injured. While the bodies of children tend to correct for problems and heal faster than adult bodies, they are still susceptible to pain and immobility.
If your child frequently complains about a sore neck, shoulder, or back then it's probably a good idea to have them checked out by a pediatric chiropractor. In our office, we can take x-rays of the affected area and determine a treatment plan to restore the natural alignment of your child’s body. Misalignment can cause inflamed nerves and muscles, and eventually a loss of motion.
Chiropractic Maintenance for Kids
Our chiropractor will assess your child’s musculoskeletal system to determine the root cause of their pain and immobility before creating a chiropractic care plan to address it. Regular chiropractic adjustments will relieve your child’s pain, restore your child’s range of motion, and improve the natural ability of your child’s body to heal itself. With kids, results from chiropractic care tend to be faster than those from adults. Children will recover from injuries faster and report less pain after their first session. After any injuries have been addressed, our chiropractor will likely recommend monthly visits just to ensure that your child’s body is growing properly.
