Pediatric Chiropractic Care
When children are young, many people assume that they can't receive chiropractic care. There is an assumption that the children may suffer from injuries or damage to their growing bodies.
The reality could not be further from that assumption. As children grow, proper alignment matters. Our staff in Dayton can provide pediatric care to ensure that your child grows up healthy and happy.
What Help Can Pediatric Chiropractic Care Provide?
Chiropractic care can be used on younger children to correct subluxations and to help their spine and joints stay in proper alignment. Many different childhood illnesses and ailments respond to chiropractic care, too. A child who is growing quickly, for example, may have growing pains that can be relieved with a chiropractic adjustment. Another child who is hurt on a playground may heal more effectively and with fewer long-term effects with adjustments.
It's believed that many newborn health complaints are a result of spinal and cranial misalignments, too. Some of those complaints include:
- Allergic reactions
- Chronic infections
- Nervous system irritation
- Sleep disturbances
Trauma Can Affect a Child's Milestones
Remember, during birth, children can suffer from trauma. It's usually a good idea to have a child's spine examined immediately after birth to make sure that the newborn's spine is aligned and healthy. Having good spinal alignment is important to a child's milestones, such as crawling, walking, sitting up and holding up the head. A spine that isn't in alignment can affect all these actions, potentially causing delays in development.
As a child grows, there are additional stresses that are placed on the spine, like the weight of a school bag or sports injuries. Having a continued relationship with a chiropractor can help guarantee that a child's health and wellness is always looked after from the inside out.
