Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Children
Parents often hesitate to bring their child to the chiropractor for adjustments. However, our chiropractor has undergone extensive training to learn how to safely provide chiropractic care for children. Here are just some of the benefits of regular pediatric chiropractic care:
- Improved development of the spine
- Behavioral management
- Aid for digestive issues
- Stress management
- Sleep management
What Do Pediatric Chiropractors Do?
During childhood, the body changes dramatically at a rapid pace. All in all, it's an exciting time. As your child learns to crawl, walk, run and play, they may fall and jolt their musculoskeletal system. While most individual tumbles result in no more than bumps and bruises, taken together they can create a spinal misalignment.
By correcting these misalignments, a pediatric chiropractor can set your child up for healthy growth and mobility.
At our family practice, we provide support that boosts your child's immune system and contributes to their overall good health. Here are some of the conditions that benefit from pediatric chiropractic care:
- Irritable baby syndrome
- Sports injuries
- Ear infections
- Concentration and focus
- Asperger’s syndrome
- Sleep issues
- Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
- Digestive issues
By focusing on your child's spine, chiropractic care for children contributes to their healthy growth. That's because the spine handles communication between the brain and the rest of the nervous system. A healthy spine can even improve your child's attention span.
How Soon Can Children See the Chiropractor in Brooklyn
We treat children as young as infants and newborns. This is particularly important if there were complications during birth. Many parents come to us to treat ear infections and colic. Some babies have trouble breastfeeding due to misalignment related to the birthing process. The pediatric chiropractor uses finger-touch light movements to correct misalignments. Your baby's safety is always our first priority.
