Chiropractic Can Help Children

By Paul Rothbart


You may think of chiropractors only as back doctors. They work with adults and usually older ones who have aging troubles. The truth is there are many potential benefits to chiropractic care and they can help people of all ages, even children. Kids tend to be active and with school, activities, and learning the lessons of life, they have a lot going on. Their growing bodies can also use some extra help so they develop into healthy adults. Seeing a chiropractor can be very helpful to your children.


Help With Growing Pains


About 40 percent of children and adolescents experience growing pains at some point in their lives. Misnamed, growing pains have nothing to do with growth but rather occur due to heavy physical activity. They can be painful enough to awaken a sleeping child and usually manifest as aching and throbbing in the limbs. The stress caused by these pains can affect the spine and the spinal cord. A chiropractor can perform adjustments to ease these pains and protect the spine and the nervous system.


Better Sleep


Good sleep is important for everyone, especially children. About 30 percent of kids have trouble sleeping due to disorders such as insomnia, sleepwalking, and night terrors. There are many patients who report that they sleep better when receiving chiropractic treatment. A body free from pain will relax more easily. This can help your kids get to sleep and stay asleep. Anything that can help children get the quality sleep they need to grow up strong and healthy is worth trying.


Better Performance in Sports


Lots of kids like to play sports. Although it's mainly for fun and exercise, athletics are more enjoyable when you can reach your full potential. Chiropractic care is known for helping athletes young and old achieve peak performance. It can also help with the injuries common to sports, especially subluxated joints and tight, sore muscles.


Treats Aches


Kids are always picking aches and pains. It could be an earache, a bump on the head, or just a plain, old headache. Many headaches are caused by tension in the spine and neck. Chiropractic adjustments can fix these problems and relieve headache pain. Some young patients also have experienced a reduced incidence of earaches. A chiropractor can be very helpful in relieving all kinds of childhood pain.


Children need to be cared for to ensure they grow and develop into healthy adults. Consider taking your kids for a visit to The Joint Chiropractic. You don't need an appointment. You may find that seeing a chiropractor helps your kids stay active, sleep better, and enjoy a fun and happy childhood.
