Chiropractors often see a range of patients, including children, adults, and seniors. Chiropractic care can provide a variety of benefits, including improved immune function, reduced behavioral concerns, and a lower risk of injury. At Anchor Holistic Health in Farmington, we provide pediatric chiropractic care.
What Do Pediatric Chiropractors Do?
Pediatric chiropractors begin with a physical exam. We will check the child’s sensory processes, reflexes, alignment, and muscle tone. We will discuss any concerns you have and ask questions about your child’s lifestyle. If the child is older, we will also speak with the child about any symptoms or concerns they may have.
Once we have completed an exam, we will recommend any treatments that we think are needed and discuss our findings with you. It’s important to note that even if your child is healthy, he or she may still benefit from chiropractic treatment.
What Do Chiropractors Treat?
Chiropractors treat a wide range of conditions in people of all ages. Aside from the well-known back pain and neck pain treatments, we also provide relief for other health issues. Pediatric chiropractors can help with a variety of conditions including sleep problems, ear infections, allergies, headaches, ADHD, and colic.
When Is Chiropractic Care Needed?
There are several signs that your child may need to visit a chiropractor:
One reason to bring your child in is birth trauma. Birth trauma can occur during any birth. Severe birth trauma can cause issues that last a lifetime, like Bell’s Palsy. However, less severe injuries can manifest as misalignment, which can lead to a range of health issues.
Another sign your child may need a chiropractic visit is difficulty sleeping. Infants and children can have sleep difficulties. Chiropractic care can improve your child’s sleep.
Poor posture is often an indication of spinal misalignment. This misalignment can cause issues like neck pain, back pain, and an increased risk of injury.
Is Chiropractic Treatment Safe for Children?
Chiropractic care is safe and effective for individuals of all ages. Chiropractors can treat infants who are only a few weeks old, up to elderly individuals.
