Chiropractic Care for Children

Chiropractic care for children

Is chiropractic therapy safe for children?

Gentle, noninvasive and drug-free, chiropractic adjustments can treat, resolve and prevent a wide range of health problems in children of all ages.

Recent research by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) has shown that chiropractic therapy is a safe and successful treatment for both acute and chronic childhood disease.

In fact, parents who are seeking safe and affordable alternative treatments for their children are increasingly turning to spinal manipulation.

How can chiropractic care help my child?

Broadly speaking, childhood disease can be categorized into acute disorders and chronic disorders.

Acute conditions are those that can result from trauma suffered while playing sports, during birth or from accidents.  Chronic disorders, by contrast, are those that last for an extended period, sometimes having developed over years.

Chiropractic therapy takes a holistic approach, thus addressing both acute and chronic conditions that begin in early childhood and lead to pain later in life. Additionally, because the goal is to bring the body back to its naturally healthy state, chiropractic therapy is uniquely suited as a preventative measure as well.

More reasons for children to see a chiropractor:

  • To encourage good neural plasticity (brain and nerve development)
  • To support overall health and well being
  • To strengthen immunity and potentially reduce the incidence of colds, earaches and general illness
  • To alleviate asthma, breathing difficulties and allergies
  • To encourage good spinal posture
  • To improve concentration
  • To allay behavioral disorders
  • To ease digestive problems
  • To alleviate bed-wetting and sleep issues

Your child’s health is their greatest asset. We urge you to explore all treatment options available.
