Can a pediatric chiropractor help my children? While chiropractic care is known to promote health and wellness in adults, it may be surprising to think of the ways it can help children, too. Since chiropractic treatment is tailored specifically to each person, children can benefit from chiropractic care with gentle, effective techniques.
Many parents seek out chiropractic care for their children after the child has sustained an injury. However, there are other reasons why children should see a chiropractor, including the following:
Restricted movement of the head/neck
One shoulder appearing higher than the other
While chiropractors don’t treat conditions/diseases, they check the spine for misalignments that impair nerve function. This impairment can affect overall body function. By aligning the spine, chiropractors give their patients the opportunity for improved health and well-being.
Along with fixing misalignments in the spine to improve overall health, chiropractic care can also have the following effect for children:
Improved behavior and attitude
Improved immune system function
Chiropractic care for children has also been used to treat chronic ear infections, headaches, scoliosis, colds, and growing pains. Since the immune system benefits from chiropractic care, it’s no wonder there are so many health benefits!
