Many of our patients come to us asking if chiropractic care would work for their children. They have experienced the benefits of chiropractic, and wonder if their kids could enjoy the same positive effects. But some worry that chiropractic isn’t safe for children and are curious about the effects they will see. Here’s how chiropractic care can be beneficial for the children in your family.

Chiropractic for your Kids

Chiropractic for kids is not a new practice and has proven to be effective in addressing and treating a number of disorders specific to children. By correcting subluxations and reducing discomfort that causes pain and crying, chiropractic care has been shown to improve the condition of colicky babies. We’ve also treated children with sleeping problems, and those that have abnormal spinal curvature or gait problems. Chiropractic is a natural and non-invasive treatment that is founded upon gentle and effective adjustment techniques that are well-tested and safe for every member of your family.

Kids Just Get Hurt

Not only can chiropractic help with treating the conditions listed above, it can help help to restore kid’s health when they sustain an injury. The fact of the matter is that sometimes kids just get hurt. The run and fall, they jump off the bed, they climb the monkey bars, and they injure themselves playing sports. Chiropractic care aligns the joints and spine and fixes the root of the issue.

Optimal Body Function

When the spine is properly aligned, the nervous system is able to flow and communicate as it should. When there are misalignments in the spine, it can put additional pressure on nearby nerves, which causes pain and effects the brain’s communication with the body. Chiropractic fixes these misalignments, allowing the brain to properly communicate with the body so it can make the best decisions for the body’s health. A growing body depends on a healthy nervous system as it is changing everyday and needs accurate input in order to develop properly. Chiropractic care can help your children achieve this as they grow from baby to adult.
