Kids and Chiropractic
As children go through different stages of development physically, their bodies endure a lot of stress. Even though kids don't complain about aches and pains the way adults do, they still benefit from chiropractic adjustments to help maintain their health.
What most people don't know is that for kids, the earlier they can experience chiropractic attention, the more they'll benefit. Even during the birthing process, a baby's spine can be misaligned due to the intense pressure they receive as they are born. As they continue to develop, they may sleep in different positions, which may also contribute to misalignment over time. Young children in the toddler stage often fall or twist and strain their bodies as they learn to walk and explore.
We all know that kids enjoy watching tv and playing computer games. Most of the time, this means a child is sitting with poor posture for long periods of time. Hours of sports and games, wrestling and other activities mean stress on the spine and neck area. Children's bodies are designed to be resilient and they usually recover from small amounts of stress. But over time, consistence activities like long periods of sitting or carrying heavy items like backpacks can have serious repercussions on kids' spines.
As you can see, children can also benefit from a chiropractic adjustment. Because of the amount of activities and exercise children are involved in, starting early with chiropractic care can help a young child develop with less discomfort.
Pediatric Care in Tucson
Small children cannot communicate their discomfort to you like older kids can. When a baby is under stress or in pain, all they can do is cry. Ensure your child maintains a healthy nervous system and proper spinal development. As they grow, kids tend to act out more when issues with the spine are not treated. Things like colic, ear infections and ADHD can result from something as simple as a misalignment of the spine.
A chiropractor can examine a child and determine the best way to treat them. Not only are treatments gentle and non-invasive, they allow children to relax more. Chiropractic treatment for children can be beneficial. If you are concerned about your child's spinal health, call our team at Vitality Chiropractic today.
"My husband Ben, our 3 year old son Benjamin, and myself Vanessa have all been going to Dr. Huls for almost 3 years. We are very impressed and excited to see the love and dedication and the knowledge Dr. Huls has. When we first started seeing Dr. Huls my husband had horrible headaches and a chronic cough and we went to medical doctors and every time we went we would receive a new medication (Which we have not filled since seeing Dr. Huls). Ben’s headaches are very rare and his chronic cough is GONE. We are so THANKFUL. Our son is rarely sick. One of our good family friends asked “Vanessa, our kids are always together and my 2 kids are always sick, what do you give Benjamin?” my response “CHIROPRACTIC care” We highly recommend Dr. Huls. If I trust him with my son you can fully trust you will be in great hands."
