Overview Of Our Pediatric Chiropractic Practice
Most people do not realize that infants and children are just as much in need of chiropractic care as adults. Infants, in particular, are susceptible to a wide range of possible ailments related to slow or traumatic birth and c-sections.
Children seldom complain of chronic pain the way adults do, and their bodies appear to made of rubber the way they seem to bounce back from injury. The truth is children's bodies are under a lot of stress when in a state of development and keeping them healthy requires regular maintenance.
Early on, many children begin to develop poor posture. Sitting in front of a computer or TV can have serious repercussions on the spine. Playing contact sports, wearing heavy backpacks, and even sitting at desks can all cause issues. As teenagers, they begin to deal with the stress of more daily responsibilities, such as becoming part of the work force and using their bodies to perform physical labor such as painting houses, serving tables and the likes.
Why You Should Choose Our Pediatric Chiropractic Practice
Misalignments or subluxations put pressure on the delicate spinal nerves and interfere with the body’s ability to coordinate and control all phases of growth and development. Chiropractic for infants and children can help correct these potential problems through careful yet effective adjustments to remedy misalignments as they are identified.
Why You Should Choose Our Pediatric Chiropractic Practice is because stress and misalignment of the spine can have serious impacts on your child's overall health, behavior and development. Chiropractic care is a gentle and non-invasive therapy that works to correct underlying issues before they interrupt development.
Overview Of Our Pediatric Focused Exam
Children particularly need pediatric chiropractic care as they age because a lot of the problems we experience as adults actually come from our childhood – either because we fell (think about how many times a day a baby falls when they are learning to walk, sometimes 10-20 times per day), broke something or simply had poor posture.
Posture problems particularly result from spending many hours in front of a computer or television, playing rough or carrying backpacks all day long at school.
