What is Pediatric Chiropractic Care?
Childhood is a time of rapid growth and development for the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Chiropractic for kids is a gentle, natural healing method with a full body approach that promotes overall health and wellbeing while a child grows.
Spinal misalignments don’t just occur in adults but in infants, children and adolescents too. Often our first “subluxation” occurs during the birthing process due to the use of forceps, vacuum extraction, c-section or even the twisting and pulling of natural childbirth. We recommend infants have their first chiropractic visit within two weeks after birth.
Chiropractic adjustments for infants and children are different than adjustments performed on adults. Pediatric adjustments are modified based on age, height, weight and spinal structures to be gentle, even sometimes requiring only a touch of the fingers.
How does Chiropractic Care benefit children?
The main goal of Chiropractic Care is to restore and optimize the functions of the nervous system to promote overall health of the entire body. Spinal misalignments can inhibit the development of a child’s nervous system, immunity, growth and physical strength.
Childhood is a very active period for the human body and injuries can often be confused with growing pains or simply brushed off as minor when they are not. A Chiropractor is trained to recognize and treat musculoskeletal injuries to avoid future complications. Plus, Chiropractic is a form of safe, natural healthcare that provides parents a viable alternative to pharmaceuticals and invasive procedures for their children and any potential side effects.
Dr. Will strongly believes children stand to benefit the most from a natural healthcare foundation as their bodies grow and develop to ensure a healthy adult life.
