Pediatric Chiropractic Therapy
We are devoted to helping patients in all age ranges. In fact, we have an excellent reputation in the community because we offer kids chiropractic services to help them heal from painful conditions instead of just focusing on treating adults. It all takes place in a warm and caring environment. If your child is in need of chiropractic treatment, we are standing by to help!
Basics of Chiropractic Care
If you have limited experience with chiropractic care, it’s easy to become acquainted with the basics.
Essentially, chiropractic care is a drug-free method of treatment that does not rely on surgery. Instead, the chiropractor performs manipulations of the spine to bring it back into balance, reduce pain and cut down on inflammation to help stimulate healing.
Massage therapy is another aspect of chiropractic care that your child may require, as indicated by the chiropractor.
Reasons a Child Might Need Chiropractic Care
Children experience aches and pains that can cause stress on their body while in their growing years. Problems may stem from the position of the fetus while still in the womb that can cause the spine to push out of alignment.
A variety of childhood disorders are treatable by a chiropractor, including:
- Growing pains
After consultation and exam, our pediatric chiropractor will create a customized treatment plan just for your child.
