Kids need chiropractic care, too.

Are you hearing this for the first time?

If so, that’s OK! Many people are unaware that children can benefit from chiropractic care. They assume that seeing a chiropractor is just something you do when you’re an adult dealing with a bad back, stiff joints, or poor posture.

Kids developing bodies can experience stress too and benefit from chiropractic care.

Or maybe – being the progressive parent you are – you already know the benefits of childhood chiropractic care and you schedule regular adjustments for your family. You know that your child’s spine is developing from birth to about age 15, and that proper spinal check-ups throughout childhood can help prevent issues later in life.

You see chiropractic as part of a proactive wellness plan to keep your child healthy and at their best!

Wherever you fall on the awareness spectrum, we’re here to support your child’s growth and development at every age, including:

Infancy:

So, you’re a new mom. You’re head over heels in love with your new baby, but also completely and utterly sleep-deprived. So, when your infant struggles to breastfeed, or cries excessively, or has colic and other ailments like earaches and reflux, you need help FAST!

What you may not realize is that many common newborn problems can be attributed to spinal misalignments. These misalignments stem from things like birth trauma, improperly carrying your baby, and excessive time in car seats. Chiropractic care (especially early on) can address these issues and ensure your child’s nervous and immune systems are developing optimally.

Toddler Years:

Look out… Your little one is on the move! As your child learns to walk, expect a lot of bumps and falls. When you add organized sports and playground adventures into the mix, these ups and downs can increase the chances of a subluxation (i.e., misaligned vertebrae).

We’re here to help your child find relief from issues including scoliosis, bedwetting, asthma, headaches, and neurodevelopment disorders.

Teen Years:

In the blink of an eye, your infant is suddenly a teen! During this last stage of spinal development, it’s important that your teen is growing properly. Poor posture, heavy backpacks, contact sports, and normal growing pains can lead to your child experiencing headaches, scoliosis, PMS, back pain and ADD/ADHD. With chiropractic care, we can help your child feel great and function as they should so they can enjoy their teenage years.

Supporting children with learning disabilities.

Our office also specializes in the care of children with neuro-developmental disorders such as autism, ADD/ADHD, sensory processing disorder, and learning disabilities. Since chiropractic seeks to restore balance and proper function to the nervous system, chiropractic for these kids often has life-altering effects!

It’s a family affair.

Chiropractic care is recommended for the whole family. Time and time again, we see how families who get adjusted together are often healthier and enjoy a more active lifestyle. If you’ve never been to Davis Family Chiropractic, make sure to ask us about our family care plans. When the whole family has access to chiropractic care, the whole family wins!
