Pediatric Chiropractic CareAs parents, we’re constantly seeking ways to ensure our children’s health and well-being. One aspect of pediatric health often overlooked is chiropractic care. At Health for Life Spine & Disc Center, pediatric chiropractic care can support your child’s overall health and development. 

What is Pediatric Chiropractic Care?

Pediatric chiropractic care involves gentle, noninvasive techniques specifically tailored to meet the unique needs of children. Chiropractors specializing in pediatric care undergo additional training to safely and effectively address the musculoskeletal health of infants, children, and adolescents. At Health for Life Spine & Disc Center, we focus on improving the body’s natural healing abilities and promoting overall health and well-being by focusing on the spine and nervous system.

Benefits of Pediatric Chiropractic Care

If you have an infant diagnosed with colic or one who struggles to sleep through the night, consider visiting a chiropractic office. A three-month-long study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics showed that multiple infants receiving chiropractic care for colic had a 94% improvement in their symptoms.

We have found chiropractic care for infants provides additional benefits including;

  1. Improved Sleep Quality—Proper spinal alignment can significantly impact sleep quality. Pediatric chiropractic adjustments can help alleviate discomfort and tension, allowing children to enjoy more restful and rejuvenating sleep.
  2. Enhanced Immune Function – The nervous system is crucial in regulating immune function. Pediatric chiropractic care can help support the immune system by ensuring that the spine is aligned correctly, reducing the risk of illness and infection.
  3. Promotion of Proper Growth and Development – Childhood is a time of rapid growth and development, both physically and neurologically. Pediatric chiropractic care can help the spine and nervous system function optimally, supporting healthy growth and development milestones.
  4. Prevention of Sports Injuries – As children become more active in sports and physical activities, the risk of injuries increases. Regular chiropractic care can help maintain proper alignment and biomechanics, reducing the likelihood of sports-related injuries.
  5. Relief from Digestive Issues – Many children experience digestive issues such as constipation, reflux, and colic. Pediatric chiropractic adjustments can help improve nerve function and alleviate tension in the abdomen, promoting better digestion and overall gastrointestinal health.

Integrating Pediatric Chiropractic Care into Your Child’s Wellness Routine

Just like your regular doctor visits for wellness checks, it is important to establish a chiropractic healthcare routine. Patients who start chiropractic care younger have a lower risk of injury, inflammation, nervous system dysfunction, and more. Here are our tips to help you get in the habit of pediatric chiropractic care:

  1. Start Early – It’s never too early to prioritize your child’s spinal health. Even infants can benefit from gentle chiropractic adjustments to address issues such as birth trauma, breastfeeding difficulties, and colic.
  2. Regular Check-ups – Just like dental and pediatrician visits, regular chiropractic check-ups should be a part of your child’s wellness routine. These visits can help detect and address spinal misalignments or imbalances before they escalate into more severe problems.
  3. Open Communication – Communication is key when it comes to pediatric chiropractic care. Be sure to discuss any concerns or questions you may have with your child’s chiropractor, and always seek their guidance on the best course of action for your child’s health.
  4. Encourage Healthy Habits – Encourage your child to maintain a healthy lifestyle through proper nutrition, regular exercise, and good posture habits. These habits will complement the benefits of chiropractic care and support your child’s overall well-being.

Schedule Your Visit for Pediatric Chiropractic Care

We work with infants, toddlers, preschoolers, elementary-aged children, teens, and adults. Our experts focus on natural treatments and utilize modern technology to help nervous and spine systems that are misaligned and experiencing pain. We call misalignment subluxation, essentially meaning your nervous system is not working correctly.

If you have something out of balance in the body, other areas of the body may not be functioning correctly. As each system relies on one another, it is easy to understand why some babies tend to experience colic symptoms over others. We can provide adjustments for colic babies to help them find relief and live pain-free.
