Our youngest patients can benefit greatly from chiropractic care, but we know many parents aren’t aware of the many ways our treatments and services can help their kids grow to be strong and healthy. In this blog post, we answer our most frequently asked questions from parents about pediatric chiropractic.
What exactly is pediatric chiropractic care?
Chiropractic is a holistic, natural treatment that improves the body’s overall functioning by boosting the functioning of the central nervous system. Our treatments help facilitate communication between the body and the brain, which helps improve coordination, boost healing, enhance flexibility, build strength and prevent chronic conditions. For our pediatric patients, this type of care helps improve functioning and increase overall health and wellbeing.
What types of techniques do you use for children?
We offer a range of services, and our chiropractors will determine which are best for your child. Treatment may include spinal manipulation, which helps improve communication between the body and the brain while restoring spinal alignment. We may use massage therapy to treat issues like anxiety or stress and boost overall body functioning, or we may recommend stretches and exercises to improve coordination, strengthen muscles and reduce the risk of injury. Every patient is unique, and we will recommend the best treatment options based on a thorough patient exam and history.
Is chiropractic care safe for kids?
Yes! Chiropractic is a safe, effective treatment for a host of issues commonly affecting kids. We are happy to talk to you about all of our methods and how we can safely administer them to young patients.
