Pediatric Chiropractic Care

chiropractor sees children for wellness chiropractic care

Pediatric chiropractic care can help to address a range of spinal alignment issues that arise as children develop and grow. From addressing the effects of a baby’s position in the womb to treating postural problems, and injuries in older children, pediatric chiropractic therapy in Paradise, Rancho Oakey, or Spring Valley, gently and safely restores motion to the involved joints, alleviates tissue tension, and restores functional harmony to support optimal growth and development. Pediatric chiropractic therapy also reduces the stress and strain on the nervous system that stems from misalignments of the vertebrae in the spine or cranium, which are known as subluxations.

As a non-invasive and medication-free mode of care, pediatric chiropractic therapy may be employed to help manage a wide range of conditions such as infant colic, ADD/ADHD, torticollis, bed-wetting, asthma, allergies, digestive issues, chronic ear infections, headaches, TMJ syndrome, scoliosis and more.

Chiropractic May Help With Child Development

Chiropractic care may be helpful for your child's development. After development and birth, children growing into toddlers are faced with the developmental challenge of crawling and walking. While children are learning to overcome these challenges they are also going through a significant amount of straining, twisting, and falling.

While growth continues, and the child reaches the age where they play with pets, friends, and family, they can begin to develop bad posture, start playing contact sports, wearing heavier backpacks (most likely the wrong way), and deal with the stress of more daily responsibilities. As these kids become teenagers and high school graduates, they join the workforce, which could place more strain on them depending on their chosen field.

As a parent, you need to make it a point to ensure that all the falls, stress, trauma, and physical demands that your children go through do not stop them from being kids. Chiropractic care is all about protecting your body from harm and chiropractors' exams are not intrusive but extensive enough that, even if your child is too young to communicate, or too shy, they can ascertain if treatment is needed or not.
