It’s never too early to have your child evaluated and adjusted by a Chiropractor. From the minute they leave the womb, it is a very common time a misalignment can occur due to trauma from the birthing process and your baby is susceptible to a spinal issue. Most children will also undergo many bumps, falls, and bruises during the course of their childhood. These small stumbles may not cause significant discomfort for your child, but it can cause shifts in their musculoskeletal system which often leads to spinal misalignment or subluxation, interfering in your child's nervous system’s efficient functioning.
Chiropractic care for children benefits are varied in numerous ways. Even if your child does not have a particular diagnosed condition, visiting a Chiropractor is part of a healthy lifestyle which promotes regular development and wellbeing. Benefits include, but aren’t limited to:
A parent’s concern is always the first sign that treatment might be required. Young bodies are usually flexible and resilient. Throughout childhood, they take a lot of falls and bumps without much difficulty. Yet, some minor adjustments along the way can help your child grow strong and pain-free.
Here are some of the signs to look out for:
Adjustments for children are different, using significantly less force. If any gentle adjustments are needed, we typically use fingertip pressure to make any corrections or tools such as activators. When adjusting the spinal joints, you may hear some soft popping noises, but not always. Usually, there will not be any discomfort during treatment sessions. Chiropractic care for children is usually painless, unless it’s used to treat an injury. Any sensitivity that may be experienced should dissipate shortly after the adjustment.
Unless necessary, we would not refer your child for X-rays. X-rays are only needed if there are signs of Scoliosis presented or major injuries. Health Promotion Board (HPB) Youth Preventive Health Services conducts annual health and spine screening at Primary and Secondary Schools for your child for early detection of scoliosis.
