Chiropractic Care for Kids

chiropractor sees children for wellness chiropractic care

Chiropractic is a family affair.  By combining your Chiropractic care with your children, it allows your family to have a stable foundation of health, balance, and wellness.

If you take care of your body it will take care of you!  Just like you have to get your teeth checked by the dentist, you also need to have your spine checked by a Chiropractor.   Why not the groundwork for a healthy lifestyle before your child is born?  Your child can benefit from Chiropractic care before they are even born by combining regular adjustments with a Chiropractic lifestyle.

The apprehension that most parents have is that their children’s adjustments will be exactly like their own.  By varying the techniques used for each child’s size, from newborns to adolescents, this will ensure that your child will have a gentle and effective adjustment.

Chiropractic care can help your child with colic, scoliosis, ear aches, proper alignment of the spine, limited range of  motion, upset stomach, and to ensure proper development.

Many parents have commented that they have seen a difference with their child after experiencing the benefits of Chiropractic care.

A child's nervous system is the controller and regulator of all the other systems in their growing body. From blood flow, to brain function and bone growth, the nervous system plays a central role in keeping things working and healthy. Stress and misalignment of the spine can have serious impacts on your child's overall health, behavior, and development. Dahlonega Chiropractic Life Center is a chiropractic clinic that offers gentle and non-invasive therapy that works to correct underlying issues before they become hard-wired in during development, providing support for a pain-free and successful childhood.

It may be difficult to imagine that a child would need chiropractic care. They seldom complain of chronic pain the way adults do and their bodies appear to be made of rubber in the way they bounce back from injury. The truth is, children's bodies are under a lot of stress while they are in a state of development and keeping them healthy requires maintenance.

Stress and trauma to the body and spine commonly begin with the birthing process. Infant’s spines can easily become misaligned from the intense pressure involved in both natural and Cesarean births. Unfortunately, other than crying, they have no way of communicating their pain, and it's source, to us. Throughout infancy they may sleep in awkward positions, and occasionally take a tumble. As children, they grow into toddlers who strain, and twist, and fall, while learning to crawl and walk. Luckily, they are very resilient and can take a lot of impact, but it is not uncommon for these injuries to develop into patterns of movement that will pull a child's bones out of alignment over time.

As kids, they may start to develop bad posture. Sitting in front of a computer or TV can have serious repercussions on the spine. Playing contact sports, wearing heavy backpacks (most likely the wrong way), and even sitting in desks can all cause issues. As teenagers, they begin to deal with the stress of more daily responsibilities, like becoming part of the work force, and use their bodies to perform physical labor such as painting houses, serving tables, and the like.

As you can see, there are plenty of opportunities throughout development for a child's body, and particularly their spine, to become out of alignment which will affect other aspects of their healthy nervous system function and development.

How Can I Tell If My Child Needs Chiropractic Care?

A child's spine can become quite misaligned without any awareness on their part of pain or discomfort. Children have not always developed enough awareness of their bodies to identify a subtle chronic issue developing. Even when a child is experiencing pain, they may not be able to communicate it to you and it can come across as grumpiness, acting out, or incessant crying. Issues with the spine can also be the source of many other childhood issues, such as colic, ear infections, and ADHD.

What is Chiropractic Care for Kids?

A chiropractic treatment for a child begins with an extensive examination to determine the exact issue and the best route for treatment. Even if your child is too young to communicate, or too shy, a chiropractor has the skills to work with them to find out exactly what is going on before proceeding with treatment, if it is determined treatment is needed. Gentle and non-invasive adjustments are then made to the spine. Children will often become relaxed and even fall asleep following treatment, a good sign that it has been effective.
