Chiropractic for Kids Ensures a Healthy Pattern of Growth
FOR ALL AGES, as early as newborns!
Gentle chiropractic adjustments can be used to treat a number of common health conditions experienced by infants, children, and teens. These include:
When a baby is born there are a lot of factors that can affect its health including spinal trauma. There is so much pressure on such a small, underdeveloped body that the spine takes the brunt of the force. As infants start to grow and start to support their heads, sit up, hold their weight crawling, and eventually walk, they are relying on their spine for support. Spinal alignment in babies is critical to ensure proper growth as the child ages and becomes more adventurous.
As the child ages, Pediatric Chiropractors become a much more important role in the development of your child. Once they grow enough to be able to ride a bike, start skateboarding, join organized sports, etc. your child’s actions can result in small, eventually significant spinal misalignments. If these spinal misalignments are neglected in childhood when we see the most rapid period of growth in a person they can lead to more serious problems later in life. The spine experiencing this constant trauma throughout childhood will affect the future impaired nervous system function. Any interference with the vital nerve system will adversely affect the body’s ability to function at its best.
Constant pressure causes long-term physical implications such as cranial issues, spinal adhesions, and injuries to the head, neck, and spinal canal. Parents are often surprised to learn that the health issues their children are experiencing can originate from structural problems. When a chiropractor is used to correct the effects of birth trauma it can prevent childhood health issues without prescription medication.
When you bring your child to Aspire Chiropractic, the initial visit will consist of an evaluation of the spine to assess its alignment. This will be followed by using our hands or a small tool to make effective, gentle adjustments to restore normal alignment and unblock nerve flow. With a healthier nervous system, your child’s body will start to heal from birth trauma naturally.
