Can Chiropractic help my children? Why do millions of parents bring their children to Doctors of Chiropractic every year? Chiropractors have been helping kids lead healthier lives for over 100 years.
Today we find more parents bringing their children to chiropractors for day-to-day health concerns we are all familiar with: colds, sore throats, ear infections, fever, tonsillitis, allergies, infections, pains, falls, stomach-ache and the hundred and one little and big things children go through as they grow up. Children are very active, as they should be; however, activities such as sports, rough play, and carrying heavy backpacks can strain their body.
Chiropractors do not necessarily treat or cure these conditions, but they have been shown to help in profound ways by treating the children suffering from them and enhancing their general health. Treatment is very simple and quick; many children enjoy being treated. Chiropractic adjusting techniques are modified to fit a child’s size, weight, and unique spinal problem.
It is very exciting to treat children since children tend to respond very quickly to chiropractic care. Many parents and daycare providers report that children who receive chiropractic care seem healthier than other kids their age. When a child complains of pain consistently, you know it must be real. Chiropractic care is safe for children and it begins in pregnancy and continues from infancy to adulthood.
