Benefits of Chiropractic Care

People tend to look at you strangely when you say you are taking your infant to the chiropractor, thinking the only need for chiropractic care is for back pain. Chiropractors can not only detect the subluxation, but also can determine if the baby has hip issues, address torticollis and adjust to correct these issues. Chiropractic care in infants can also reduce colic, ear infections, respiratory issues, constipation, and reflux by removing the spinal interference. By making sure the spine is in alignment, the nervous system works as it was designed, to allow the body to heal itself. Chiropractic babies tend to be healthier than their non-chiropractic peers.

Chiropractic Care for Children and Adolescents

When your child begins to walk, it is also good to have your chiropractor check them out, as the continual falling on their bottoms sends shockwaves through the spine and can cause misalignments in the pelvis and spine. Over time, the fixated vertebral segments can lead to degeneration of the spine. Keeping the spine moving prevents degeneration from beginning.

As children get into sports and technology, their neck and spine also face challenges. The term “tech neck” has been generated to describe the forward head posture that kids, and adults as well, adopt when looking at their phones, tablets, and computers. The curve in your neck is crucial to your spinal cord working properly. When the head constantly moves forward and the ears are no longer in alignment with the shoulders, and symptoms of headaches, shoulder pain, and numbness and tingling in the hands and fingers can develop. Sports can cause subluxations in the spine, too. Tackles, base slides, soccer plays, vertical reaches for volleyballs and basketballs, tumbling and cheer can all misalign the spine. Chiropractic care for kids can help to improve posture, maintain the natural curve in the neck, prevent injury and keep your child happy and healthy
