When Should Your Child See A Chiropractor?

A child playing at the playground

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.

What Are The Benefits of Chiropractic Care For Children?

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:

  • Healthy and pain-free growth
  • Boost immune system
  • Encourages proper brain and nerve development
  • Correcting or preventing poor posture
  • Reduced chances of common childhood issues such as: ear infections, inconsistent sleep patterns, wetting the bed, allergies, etc
  • Reduced symptoms of digestive issues like constipation, reflux
  • Effective recovery from an injury
  • Increased mobility in the joints or spine

What Are The Signs My Child Should Visit A Chiropractor?

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: 

  • Complaints of continual or recurring neck or back pain
  • Limited head or neck mobility
  • Uneven shoulders
  • Uneven hips

Do Chiropractors Adjust Kids Differently?

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.

Does Your Child Need X-Rays Before Getting Adjusted?

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.

Conclusion

We want your child to be as healthy and active as possible. At Live Well Chiropractic, our Chiropractors are experienced with children, so you can have the peace of mind that they are in safe hands. Schedule in an appointment with one of our Chiropractors to get your child evaluated.

After the first few visits, my lower back started to feel a lot better. And I began to regain my mobility. This is all due to the regular adjustments and decompression therapy as recommended by Dr Jessie. I've also done my due diligence to regularly stretch and do core exercises that helps with the recovery as recommended by Dr Jessie.

I have been coming here for back and shoulder pain for the past two months, definitely seeing improvement as the shoulders do not feel as tight anymore. My back pain has been gradually fading away and overall, moving feels easier now. The front desk has been very helpful, they are very prompt with their replies especially when i make sudden changes in my appointment timing.

One day after work, I experienced pain deep within the right rhomboid area, right shoulder blades and neck pains. It felt like a stiff neck but more intense. After 2 weeks, hoping it would naturally go away, it didn’t. It was very uncomfortable and sometimes painful which resulted in me taking some pain killers. So that’s when I decided to try Chiro. I was assigned with Dr. Siew Wei at the Rivervale Mall Branch and was advised to go for a 20 session package, which I did. After about 4 sessions, is when I started to feel some improvement. Yes, it takes time and it’s not an immediate result. By the 10th Session, most of the pain was gone and by the 18th session. I’m back to normal. Dr. Siew Wei is friendly and knowledgeable, and I’m glad that she had managed to cure away the pain. Thank you.

Have been with Livewell Sengkang about 3 months now, and have nothing but good stuff to say about them. Firstly the service from the front desk is great, with very quick replies and very flexible whenever I have to make last minute changes to my time slot. Very glad with the friendliness of the staff and how convenient they make my booking of sessions! As for my doctor, Dr Kenny gave clear explanations from the very start, is extremely friendly and easy to talk to, which I appreciate. Went here to correct my neck posture as well as my hunchback, which I do see myself improving and being more conscious about as the sessions go on. Feel a lot lighter and easier to stand straight after each session. Overall a very comfortable experience, really recommend!
