Think that chiropractic care is just for adults? Think again! Children and adolescents also reap the wellness-boosting rewards of chiropractic care. Dr. Smith encourages patients to learn how chiropractic care helps kids of all ages grow up as healthy as possible.
Chiropractors are seeing a growing interest in chiropractic care for children.
Studies show that the number of parents choosing CAM (complementary and alternative medicine), especially chiropractic, for their children is swiftly rising.
Dr. Smith uses extremely safe and gentle techniques when adjusting pediatric patients. These techniques are specifically modified for your youngster’s spine.
It’s a fact: Kids take frequent spills. Minor falls and slips are a normal part of growing up. Fortunately — for active kids everywhere — doctors of chiropractic focus on eliminating cervical (neck) subluxations and associated pain and limited range of motion with specialized chiropractic adjustments.
Chiropractic care also helps children with:
- Reduction of hyperactivity. This may lessen the need for drugs loaded with harmful side effects.
- Prevention of chronic ear infections.
- Chronic constipation.
- Low back pain
To reduce the risk of LBP (low back pain), encourage optimal posture and make sure that your child’s chair and desk are the correct height. Also, limit television/ computer time and promote daily exercise.
Overloaded backpacks are additional ergonomic nightmares, which provoke spinal problems.
Chiropractic care for kids works!
