Is Chiropractic Treatment Dangerous for Children?

Special Needs for Children

Chiropractic treatment is a safe and effective way to treat many childhood maladies. Chiropractic is a natural and drug-free way to help your child recover quickly from normal falls, bumps, and mishaps, some illnesses as well as more sever trauma. A child’s skeletal system has a great deal of elasticity because it’s still developing. Usually light pressure is all that is needed to adjust a child's spine and joints. Chiropractic doctors at Pearson Chiropractic are specially trained to treat children from newborns to teens.

When to Start Chiropractic Care of Children

Surprisingly, the birthing process itself places stress on a child’s spine. Toddlers and all active children feel better and stay healthier with regular chiropractic care. In a survey of school children, a whooping 26% reported a history of back pain. Next time you visit your chiropractor, bring your children in for a spinal checkup. Early treatment can help them feel better now and in the future.

Childhood Conditions Successfully Treated with Chiropractic

Chiropractors have been successfully treating children for decades. Along with treatment for spine-jarring maladies such as falls and bumps, chiropractic also successfully treats:

Asthma
Bed-wetting
Colic
Ear Infections and Earaches (without anti-biotics)
Headaches
Scoliosis

Scoliosis

Approximately 2% of the population is affected by scoliosis, a sideways curve in the spine. Early diagnosis and treatment often results in full recovery. Delayed treatment can mean less than full recovery and in some cases surgery becomes the only option. Have your children screened early. 

Signs of Scoliosis

1.
Hemlines or waistbands appear lopsided.
2.
One shoulder or hip sits higher than the other.
3.
Shoes wear unevenly, especially on the edge of the sole.
4.
The child’s spine is not straight when standing.
5.
One shoulder blade protrudes.
6.
The child’s back is humped or rounded.

Help your children to stay healthy and feeling great every day with regular chiropractic care. Bring your kids to your appointments so they can experience how gentle chiropractic care is.
