Chiropractic care for children can help support a child's overall health and wellness as they grow and reach their developmental milestones.
It works by removing interferences in their nervous system, which controls and coordinates the function of all systems in the body, such as the digestive, musculoskeletal, respiratory, hormonal, and immune system. Misalignments in a child’s spine or craniosacral system can put pressure on their nerves that can cause symptoms locally or elsewhere.
It has been shown that children who experience torticollis, poor posture, constipation, bedwetting, ear infections, colic, and feeding difficulties, to name a few, can be helped by a chiropractic adjustment. Studies have shown that parents report improved sleep, improved mood and improved immune system function as three unexpected outcomes with their child’s care. From infant to adolescent, only a fingertips touch and light pressure is used in chiropractic adjustments for children. It is a safe and gentle way to correct spinal misalignments and improve a child’s overall wellbeing.
