Chiropractic Care for Kids
A child’s nervous system is the controller and regulator of all the other systems in their growing body.
From blood flow, to brain function and bone growth, the nervous system plays a central role in keeping things working and healthy.
Stress and misalignment of the spine can have serious impacts on your child’s overall health, behavior, and development.
Precision Spinal Care is a chiropractic clinic that offers gentle and non-invasive therapy that works to correct underlying issues before they become hard-wired in during development, providing support for a pain-free and successful childhood.
How Can I Tell If My Child Needs Chiropractic Care?
A child’s spine can become quite misaligned without any awareness on their part of pain or discomfort. Children have not always developed enough awareness of their bodies to identify a subtle chronic issue developing.
Even when a child is experiencing pain, they may not be able to communicate it to you and it can come across as grumpiness, acting out, or incessant crying. Issues with the spine can also be the source of many other childhood issues, such as colic, ear infections, and ADHD.
What is Chiropractic Care for Kids?
A chiropractic treatment for a child 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, if it is determined treatment is needed.
Gentle and non-invasive adjustments are then made to the spine. Children will often become relaxed and even fall asleep following treatment, a good sign that it has been effective.
