Chiropractic for Children
Research has shown us that chiropractic care can be very helpful for colic, ear infections, erratic sleeping habits, bed wetting, scoliosis and many other common childhood health problems. Parents have reported that many childhood health problems resolve satisfactorily after chiropractic care.
WHY WOULD A CHILD HAVE A SPINE OR NERVOUS SYSTEM PROBLEM?
- A traumatic birth
- Learning to walk
- Slips and falls
- Vehicular accidents
- The list goes on
Since most children have a highly adaptive capacity, most spinal or nervous system problems that affect them are usually disregarded as “growing pains” or “just a phase.”
Many parents are concern that a chiropractic adjustment is unduly forceful for a small child. Unknowingly, they assume that their child will receive adjustments similar to the ones they receive as adults. In reality, this is not the case. Chiroworks’ adjusting techniques are modified for each individual person’s size and unique spinal problem. An infant’s spine rarely has the long-standing muscle tightness seen in adults. This reality allows for a gentle, comfortable and effective chiropractic adjustment.
A skilled chiropractor knows exactly where and how to adjust newborns, infants and toddlers. Most of the time, treatment involves no more pressure than you would use to test the ripeness of a tomato.
