Do Children Need Chiropractic?

Mar 11, 2008
Chiropractic is a branch of the healing arts which is based upon the understanding that good health depends, in part, upon a normally functioning nervous system (especially the spine, and the nerves extending from the spine to all parts of the body).

Why do children need chiropractic care?

Many parents wonder why in the world would their child need regular visits to the chiropractor's office. Children are some of the most active human beings on earth and with activity also comes tightness and sometimes restricted joint motion. When your spine and other joint are not in their optimal natural alignment many times aches and pains are soon to follow. Your body is better at healing issues from pain and illness if the bones are aligned correctly. A visit to a chiropractor's office for your child can help to maintain the correct alignment for their body.

How can a parent tell if a child needs chiropractic care?

It can be very difficult for a parent to notice or recognize that their child needs chiropractic care unless the child has an obvious problem. A person who is untrained in this field will have a hard time noticing the issues that might otherwise seem normal. This is where a trained chiropractor with his expertise comes in. They are trained to be able to spot, identify and treat issues that others many not be able to recognize.

There are several common signs a parent might notice or should look for that could be indicators of a spinal problem for the child. These common signs may include but are not limited to restricted movement or motion of the child's head, neck, or back. Restricted arm or leg movements are also an indication of joint dysfunction and should not be ignored in any case.

How will the chiropractor treat my child?

Many chiropractors have treated children before and that is one thing you should ask when you are searching for a chiropractor for your child. The first thing a chiropractor will do is get to know your child and earn their trust. Then the chiropractor will do an evaluation of your child's bones and spine to see if the child has any issues that need to be fixed. He will then make a gentle adjustment to correct any parts of the joint that is restricted.

Chiropractic is a very safe way of treating your child's issues and illnesses without the use of chemicals and drugs. By having your child visit chiropractor you are helping their body to heal itself naturally.
