Chiropractic Care for the Whole Family

By Sara Butler

If you are new to chiropractic, then you may be wondering if it’s appropriate for every member of your family – including your kids. The truth of the matter is that chiropractic is safe, effective, and healthy for people of all ages, including children. Here’s some important information you may not be aware of about kids and chiropractic care.

Why Kids Need Chiropractic

Today, children are exposed to more external stressors than ever before. From chemicals and toxins in the environment to artificial ingredients in processed foods, there are many things that can cause a child’s little body to become imbalanced. Chiropractic care has been found to be safe and effective in the treatment of:

  • Ear infections
  • Breastfeeding difficulties
  • Colic
  • Bedwetting
  • Injuries from falls
  • Acid reflux
  • Common cold and flu

At The Joint, we see children for a variety of conditions. In fact, the most common reasons children are seen at The Joint include:

  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Headaches
  • Neck pain
  • Regular chiropractic maintenance

The Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Children

Chiropractors don’t approach the treatment they offer as one size fits all. Chiropractors are trained to treat each patient, including children, in a way that will benefit them the most and help them to achieve greater overall health and wellness. They use special hands-on techniques in order to adjust children and are specially trained to deal with pediatric patients. Children are growing rapidly, and chiropractic care can offer support to help them grow in a healthy way.

The benefits of chiropractic care for children include:

  • Improved nervous system function – The goal of chiropractic care is to help support a fully functioning central nervous system free from interference.
  • Improved immune system function – When the spine is free from misalignments, then the brain is able to communicate fully with all systems of the body, and immune function and response to illness is improved.
  • A proactive approach to health – You are teaching your child how to navigate the world and take care of themselves in it. When you introduce them to chiropractic care you are showing them how to be more proactive instead of reactive with their own health and wellness.

If you ever have any questions about chiropractic care for your child, you can count on the chiropractors at The Joint to help you find the answers. Bring the whole family in today for a consultation!
