Pediatric Q & A
What is pediatric chiropractic care?
Pediatric chiropractic care is chiropractic care designed for children. Back to Health Chiropractic is proud to offer pediatric chiropractic care to children of all ages, from newborns to teenagers.
When is pediatric chiropractic care appropriate?
Proper alignment of the spine is essential to maintain ongoing health. Because patients of all ages experience alignment issues, almost anyone can benefit from spinal assessments and adjustments. Other types of chiropractic care may be beneficial when children sustain injuries, begin experiencing pain, or feel overwhelmed and stressed.
What treatments are available?
A variety of treatments are available to children at Back to Health Chiropractic. Some of the treatments for children include:
- Spinal adjustment: Spinal adjustment can effectively resolve alignment issues and improve the child’s overall health.
- Massage therapy: Massage therapy relieves soreness and loosens tense muscles. It can also help the patient to relax and feel less stressed.
- Physiotherapy: Various physiotherapy techniques alleviate pain and improve function. Examples of physiotherapy techniques include cryotherapy, heat therapy, and traction.
- Corrective exercises: Corrective exercises strengthen and stabilize weak areas of the body to prevent future injuries.
- Soft tissue manipulation: When children have scar tissue or adhesions because of a previous injury, soft tissue manipulation improves mobility and pain.
The doctors at Back to Health Chiropractic customize every treatment program to meet the needs of each individual patient. In many cases, a combination of the treatments above will be recommended.
Is pediatric chiropractic care safe?
Pediatric chiropractic care is generally safe. The doctors at Back to Health Chiropractic are experienced, and they know how to provide safe, effective chiropractic treatment to children. In addition, chiropractic treatment poses less risks to patients than some other treatments that may be recommended, such as medications or surgery.
Is pediatric chiropractic care appropriate for young athletes?
In many cases, children begin experiencing pain for the first time because of a sports injury. Chiropractic care is ideal for children with sports injuries, as well as those who simply want to improve their physical fitness to perform better in sporting events.
