Chiropractic for Kids
We are frequently asked about what the ages of the patients are in our clinic. Our answer is always, “From the womb to the tomb.” Some people are surprised that we see children and even newborns. Children may experience a traumatic birth, falls learning to walk, or other injuries which have a negative impact on their nervous system and how their body works.
Is chiropractic for children dangerous? As with any treatment, there are risks. However, the risks are minimal compared to drugs and surgeries. Some positive side effects may include: your child sleeping better, becoming more regular, having less ear infections, and getting sick less often.
Care of the newborn should actually begin in the womb. The healthier the mother is, the healthier the child is. Mothers who receive chiropractic care during pregnancy typically experience an easier labor and delivery.
Chiropractic care can help with a variety of issues your child may be experiencing. It can help with colic, ear infections, acid reflux, constipation, and headaches to just name a few. It is important to remember that chiropractic’s role is to remove interference and allow your body to function at its optimal level, regardless of age.
