Help Your Kids with Chiropractic!
By Sara Butler
Chiropractic care is something everyone can benefit from no matter their age. Children and teenagers are frequently seen by chiropractors for a variety of ailments, and chiropractic can help to improve their condition. Here are some of the conditions chiropractors commonly treat in children and teenagers.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that 1 in 11 children have asthma, as well as 1 in 12 adults. What makes that a frightening statistic is that out of the children who suffer from asthma, 1 in 5 will need to be treated in the emergency room for it over the course of a year. That makes asthma an immediate health concern for those who are afflicted by it and makes it a very disruptive condition for a child to deal with. Asthma causes kids to miss school and skip sports they may enjoy. Luckily, chiropractic treatment may help, using natural treatments to improve the function of the nervous system and help improve asthma symptoms in children.
Headaches or Migraines
Children shouldn’t be suffering from headaches, yet they often do. It may be caused by their use of technology (think text neck!), poor posture or from lifestyle choices that can trigger a headache. Whatever the cause, chiropractic has been found to be a safe and effective treatment for headaches in children. Your chiropractor can find out what might be causing the headaches and help you take steps to stop them.
Kids might be resilient, but they are just as likely to suffer from a sports injury as an adult – an injury they need to seek treatment for. A child should absolutely have an active lifestyle, and choosing chiropractic is a great way to help them keep their body healthy as they enjoy being active. If your child is injured while participating in sports you can trust your chiropractor to treat the injury at its source and get your child back on the playing field quickly and safely.
Does your child ever complain of a stomachache? Well, your chiropractor may be able to help you do something about it. Chiropractors take digestive issues very seriously. They want to help you find the reason behind your child’s complaints so they can treat them naturally with spinal adjustments that will help their body to perform optimally.
