Keeping Your Children Healthy with Chiropractic Care
Keeping Your Children Healthy with Chiropractic Care
Overview

Chiropractic care is beneficial for people of all ages, especially infants and children. It’s important to make sure their muscles, bones and nerves are developing properly as they are growing rapidly. The delicacy of their spine may result in higher chance of injury during play and discovery or even birth traumas for babies. It may seem like exterior injuries, however, these minor traumas may cause subluxation which is the misalignment of the spine. Subluxation interferes with the function of the nervous system and the child’s body may not function at its best.

Chiropractic treatments are essential to identify and correct these misalignments to improve your children’s wellness and ensure proper development of the spine and body. Regular chiropractic adjustments ensure proper recovery and prevent similar injuries in the future.

Scoliosis

Scoliosis is the abnormal curvature of the spine. Some children were born with scoliosis or developed it due to poor ergonomics. Early detection is especially important in children as the condition keeps progressing. If prolonged, untreated scoliosis causes breathing difficulty, back pain, inflexibility, posture issues and other health issues. Regular spine checks are vital to correct and prevent scoliosis. Chiropractic treatment is an alternative and safe solution to reduce spinal curvature without the need for invasive spinal surgery.

Signs of scoliosis may include:
– One shoulder blade that is higher than the other
– One shoulder blade that sticks out more than the other
– Uneven hips
– A rotating spine
– Problems breathing because of reduced area in the chest for lungs to expand
– Back pain
– Inflexibility
– Posture issues

Frequently Asked Questions
Have Any Questions?
If you require more information, contact us and ask one of our chiropractors.

Yes, chiropractic care is extremely safe for babies and children. All of our chiropractors receive basic paediatric training as part of their core curriculum during chiropractic college when they are earning their doctorates.

Chiropractors use very gentle adjustments and pediatrics techniques which involve very light fingertip pressure to correct spinal misalignments. This amount of “force” is often not more than a finger touch.

Children of all ages including infants and newborns can begin chiropractic care. Significant spinal trauma can occur as early at birth. We recommend getting your child checked for subluxation as early as possible. Getting adjusted from an early age can minimize or even eliminate any effect that bumps and falls (and even the birthing process) can have on our spinal joints. Much of the degeneration we see later in life is a result of past trauma.
