Children Chiropractic Care 

Every parent knows just how important it is for children to regularly visit a pediatrician. However, did you know that seeing a chiropractor can help you better assess your child’s health needs? It’s true! Infants, children, preteens, and teenagers can all benefit from seeing a chiropractor. In this article, we will discuss why you should be taking your children to see a chiropractor.

Chiropractic Care is safe and Effective for Children

There are various research studies that support the effectiveness and safety of chiropractic care for children. When chiropractors adjust an infant, for example, the amount of force used is similar to that which you use to test the ripeness of a tomato when you’re grocery shopping. Chiropractors are trained to be gentle and care for children with caution. Children have benefited from seeing a chiropractor for over 100 years now.

 Why do Children Need Chiropractic Care?

As children grow and their bodies go through periods of accelerated growth. When these growth spurts occur it’s important that their muscles and joints are balanced. During these periods of accelerated growth, your child’s nervous system is also developing. Chiropractic care can ensure your child has a good muscle and joint balance, as well as ensure proper joint motion, which is necessary for optimal development.

Do Children and Adults Get The Same Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care for children and adults is not the same. Depending on how old the child is and what stage of development they are on they need specific type of chiropractic care. Children often respond much faster to chiropractic care because their bodies haven’t been through as much. Also, most adults come see a chiropractor only when they are in pain, but children need to see a chiropractor regularly even if they have no pain at all. As a parent you need to be able to identify cues that determine whether or not a trip to the chiropractor’s office is in order. For example, when a child’s posture changes, when a baby only wants to breastfeed on one side, when your child has trouble keeping balance or runs with a limp. The amount of force and techniques used on your child will vary depending on the child’s current developmental stage and condition.

Should Your Child See A Chiropractor?

It’s never too early for your child to see a chiropractor. In fact, family chiropractors often see children just minutes after they are both. The birthing process is extremely strenuous which is why it’s important for both mom and baby to see a chiropractor as soon as possible. Children will often benefit a lot from chiropractic care.

In order to ensure your child is developing fine, it’s important to see a chiropractor regularly. Children should see a chiropractor as soon as possible within their first month of life, then every 3 months for the first year. The child should then see a chiropractor every 6 months, when they’ve hit a developmental milestone, suffer from a fall or a trauma, or are having trouble with balance.
