You care about your children’s health and wellbeing. Chances are high that you take them for regular physicals and dental checkups, but have you ever taken them to a chiropractor? Most parents are unaware that this option even exists and why it’s a good idea. This quick guide from the team at Davis Family Chiropractic and Massage answers some of the most common questions parents have about pediatric chiropractic care.
What is a pediatric chiropractor?
A pediatric chiropractor is a chiropractor who specializes in treating children. In addition to their regular education and training, they receive the training they need to work specifically with children as young as two weeks old and are educated in their developing bodies. Many chiropractors that treat adults get this additional training so that they can treat the whole family.
Why does a child need a chiropractor?
Most people think of chiropractic care as an adult need, but children can also benefit from chiropractic care. Traveling through the birth canal can impact a child’s spine, as can falls on the playground and sitting around to watch TV. The good news is that their bodies are still developing, which means that any issues they have now can be corrected. If you choose to take your child to a chiropractor early, it can help them live a healthier life.
Is it safe for children to see a chiropractor?
Yes. Chiropractic care is a safe, natural, holistic form of treatment. Pediatric chiropractors use the most gentle and effective method possible when treating your child.
What types of conditions does a pediatric chiropractor treat?
Chiropractic care can provide many benefits. It helps boost the immune system, supports healthy brain and physical development, and helps children sleep better. It can also help in treating colic, acid reflux, scoliosis, asthma, digestive issues, allergies, ear infections, headaches, sports injuries, ADHD, and much more. If you have any specific concerns about your children, bring them up with our chiropractor. We will develop a treatment plan to address these concerns.
