Why chiropractic care for kids?

Back To Health Chiropractic Care in Maple, Vaughan provides pediatric chiropractic care.

Young girl playing with paintMaple, Vaughan ON – Today, more and more parents are bringing their children to the chiropractor. Children receive tremendous benefit from chiropractic care.

Many times, we will get a call from a parent that goes something like this: “My friend has been bringing her baby with colic to the chiropractor and she said it has helped.  My child has constipation, can chiropractic help?”

Yes, chiropractic can help. We have seen many children with childhood conditions like colic, bedwetting, asthma, allergies and digestive troubles respond well to chiropractic care. However, chiropractic care is not a treatment for these conditions.  The objective of chiropractic care is to find and correct spinal misalignments.  Spinal misalignments can exist in infants and children just a they can exist in adults. 

Why should kids get checked for spinal misalignments?

Because a spinal misalignment puts strain and stress on the nervous system.

A healthy nervous system free of strain and stress is essential because the nervous system controls and coordinates every function of the body, including healing and repair.  Therefore, a spinal misalignment can diminish and decrease a child’s ability to express optimal function and optimal health.  Every parent I have ever met wants their child to be fully healthy, expressing their fullest life potential. Chiropractic aims to keep the spine and nervous system optimized and healthy. In this respect, chiropractic works for infants and children just as it does for adults.

How does a infant or child get spinal misalignments?

In children, there are numerous way that spinal misalignments can occur and often time they go undetected because the child will not usually complain of pain like an adult does.

Most commonly, spinal misalignments exist in infants and children because of a traumatic birthing experience. Sometimes, a spinal misalignment can occur from an accident or fall, such as fall from the change table.  Regardless of how a spinal misalignment develops in a child, a spinal misalignment poses a health risk to children just as it does to adults. Therefore, a chiropractic pediatric check-up is essential even if the child has no symptoms.

A chiropractic pediatric check-up will include a complete health history from the child’s birth to present, a posture evaluation and a chiropractic spinal assessment.

Chiropractic techniques are modified to accommodate the pediatric spine making chiropractic care for infants and children safe, gentle and effective. 

In our family chiropractic practice, we have noticed that there are 3 common ways that parents discover chiropractic for their children.

1. Parents are informed about the necessity of a chiropractic check-up by the chiropractor.
2. They do research online about pediatric chiropractic care.
3. They hear about chiropractic care by a friend who takes their child to the chiropractor.

Many people and many families enjoy the benefits that chiropractic care brings them.  Find out what chiropractic can do for you, your family and your children.  Look for a family wellness chiropractor in your community and bring your children in for a chiropractic spinal check-up.  An optimal spine means optimal health.
