Chiropractic and Childrens' Back Health

By Debra Rodzinak

When a child is exposed to chiropractic care, many times they immediately respond favorably to the physiological changes that will enhance their overall health.  Most children hold no preconceptions of the chiropractic experience and embrace the adjustments with an improvement in overall health.  Many childhood problems such as colic, ear infections, and growing pains are improved with chiropractic. 

Spinal Health of Children

Children present a special problem to the skeletal and nervous system due to the rapid changes that occur during adolescence.  Subluxations often lead to pain and discomfort in young patients and chiropractic can help relieve these pains with gentle adjustments.  If a child’s spine is working well and supporting the body, other common childhood problems are often eliminated.  Some of the problems that chiropractic can eliminate include:

  • Poor posture
  • Headaches
  • Ear infections
  • Balance issues

Parents and Chiropractic

Many parents who bring their child into a chiropractor for the first time are concerned with their child’s overall health and wellness.  Adverse to using drugs or surgery on their child, they are looking for natural methods for pain relief and childhood issues.  Chiropractic uses gentle adjustments to bring stability to the spine and nervous system.  Chiropractors believe that when the spine is properly aligned, the body works as intended and overall health and wellness can be achieved along with an enhanced quality of life.

The ultimate goal of chiropractic is not the elimination of a particular symptom, but rather an overall increase in a patient’s health and wellness.  Focusing on the entire body and the root cause of pain, chiropractors work to bring harmony to the body beginning with the spine.  When a child receives chiropractic care on a regular basis, their body can retain overall better health and wellness.

Relief from Pain

Children are very active in sports.  Often, they do not realize their own limits and injure themselves.  Pulled muscles, soreness, and other sports-related injuries are a common complaint of children who visit chiropractors.  Chiropractors work with parents and children to discuss treatment options, exercises to strengthen the back and abdominal muscles, and ways to protect the body during sports. 

At The Joint Chiropractic, expert doctors work with patients of all ages to bring overall better health and wellness through gentle spinal manipulations.  With no pesky insurance forms to fill out or appointment times to remember, finding a path to wellness for your child is simply a walk-in away.
