A chiropractic treatment for kids begins with an extensive examination to determine the exact issue and the best route for treatment. Even if your child is too young to communicate, or too shy, a chiropractor has the skills to work with them to find out exactly what is going on before proceeding with treatment.Consultation
Is chiropractic treatment appropriate for children?
Yes, children can benefit from chiropractic care. Children are very physically active and experience many types of falls and blows from activities of daily living as well as from participating in sports. Also, pediatric chiropractic care can help with asthma, breathing difficulties and allergies, improve spinal posture and child's ability to concentrate, assist with behavioral disorders and enhance emotional well-being.
Are chiropractic adjustments safe for kids?
A study conducted in 2015 found that there were no adverse side effects linked to pediatric chiropractic adjustments. When performed by a licensed chiropractor, chiropractic adjustments for children are safe, gentle, and effective.
What age should a child see a chiropractor?
You can take your child to a chiropractor when he or she is a few months old. Infants and children can benefit a great deal from pediatric chiropractic care. In fact, pediatric chiropractic can reduce both sleep problems and behavior problems, and it contributes to whole health from an early age, helping children grow up in the healthiest way possible.
