The Chiropractic care that we provide is an effective and affordable program that addresses children’s health conditions associated with the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. Gentle, non-invasive and drug-free, chiropractic adjustments treat, may assist in resolving and preventing a wide range of health problems. Recent research by the International Chiropractic Paediatric Association (ICPA) found spinal manipulative therapy safe and successful in treating children of all ages.
Chiropractic Care and Acute Conditions in Children
Acute conditions may result from birth trauma, sports mishaps and accidental injury. Chiropractic care may benefit children by correcting the spinal alignment to improve their overall health. When vertebral joints are misaligned during birth or from a blow or fall, muscle tissue and nerves may also be affected. Spinal adjustments free joints, restore motion and relieve nerve pressure, which may be the cause of additional ailments. Parents have reported successful outcomes of children’s health issues such as acute earache, upper respiratory infection, muscle pain, neck pain and accident trauma.
Chiropractic Care and Chronic Conditions in Children
Chiropractic America reports that natural, drug-free chiropractic care is sometimes more effective than traditional medical approaches for chronic earache, scoliosis, and neck pain. Headaches and sleep disorders of nonspecific causes respond well to spinal adjustments, which affect and repair interrupted neural pathways. Asthma, allergy symptoms, and patterns of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may also be treatable with chiropractic care.
Chiropractic Care and Prevention of Ailments
Periodic ongoing adjustments at a young age may help stave off the above ailments before they begin because the nervous system is able to best communicate with the body and respond most appropriately. Proper spinal alignment now may delay or prevent degenerative bone or joint disease, such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. In addition to maintaining children’s health, regular visits to our office will help instil the value of proactive health care in kids. They’ll be more likely to monitor and manage their health as they grow up and less likely to be afraid or in denial of any health problems. Encouraging good lifelong health habits is one of chiropractic’s best benefits for kids.
