is chiropractic care appropriate for
children
yes chiropractic care is appropriate for
children children can have aches and
pains too children are very active
they can fall down a lot they can bump
their spines a lot
as children get older they can have
sports injuries
or even postural problems from sitting
too long in school
now as an infant one of the
beneficial things about chiropractic
care is that if you have an infant that
is colicky
that’s crying throughout the day and
night that usually indicates that there
might be
some irritation to the infant’s
neck
and
because they can’t verbalize what
they’re feeling they’re going to cry to
let you know that there’s pain going on
so a colicky baby
sometimes can respond pretty well to
chiropractic care
as a child grows older and they’re
starting to learn how to walk then you
know they’re gonna be falling on their
butts a lot and it can be appropriate to
have them checked by a chiropractor
especially if you suspect that they’re
guarding
part of their body from falling too much
it’s easy to adjust the child now we’re
not gonna pop them in with a big crunch
we’re going to use more gentle
techniques for that
as children grow older
their skeletons start to mature more but
they’re getting into sports they’re much
more active they might receive a sports
injury
getting that to move better with
chiropractic care it’s quick and fast
as children are sitting in school too
much hunched over their desk hunched
over their ipad then they’re going to
have postural problems and sometimes you
need chiropractic care to give that a
boost
