Chiropractic Care for Children
Chiropractic care is drug-free, safe, and has benefits for all age groups from pediatric to geriatric. Misalignments of the spine happen at any age, and can be corrected with spinal adjustments.
When you buy a new car or new piece of furniture, they come pristine and shiny. It doesn’t occur to many new parents that their baby might be in need of a pediatric chiropractor. Newborn suffer quite a lot of trauma during the birth process and from the tools used during delivery. The pulling and tugging can cause injury to nerves, cause fractures, or lead to spinal misalignment. Correction at this point will set an infant up for better health from the beginning of life.
In fact, a case can be made for having chiropractic adjustments before birth. If the mother's pelvis is misaligned, it could cause a difficult delivery and unnecessary trauma to the infant and mother. If the mother is in proper alignment, the fetus can be in good position to exit the birth canal with minimal trauma in most cases.
During the child's first five years of life, more neural pathways are formed than at any other time. The bones are malleable and respond to gentle manipulation. In the course of crawling, walking, running, jumping, and falling, children are bound to develop spinal misalignments into their teen years and beyond. Add to that the effect that backpacks, the increasing use of computers and mobile phones, poor posture, and getting injured playing sports can have on their spines, and there are more than enough reasons to employ chiropractic care.

The Best of Both Worlds
It took awhile for the medical world to accept the benefits that chiropractic care offers. Now that they have come to understand its place in the holistic treatment of patients, there are referrals going back and forth between them. A good family practice physician or pediatrician in conjunction with a reliable chiropractor can help the fetus, the newborn, the toddler, the teen, the adult, and the senior reach optimum, vibrant health.
