Is Chiropractic Care Safe for My Child?

Kids have a variety of activities that put additional stress on their developing bodies. With lugging heavy backpacks around, after school sports, clubs, and other activities filling their days, they end up putting added strain on their backs throughout the school year. While some parents have gotten chiropractic care for themselves, they’ve hesitated to schedule a session for their kids because of uncertainty over whether it’s safe for them. Not only can chiropractic care provide immediate relief for your child, but it can give them a slew of long term benefits with continued visits as well.

Some Signs That Your Child Might Need Chiropractic Care

We know that kids can bounce back from their rough and tumble lives quicker than most adults can. However, that doesn’t mean that they can immediately bounce back from every fall as quickly. If you as a parent have a growing concern that your child could use some form of chiropractic treatment, it’s usually a sign that it is time to schedule an appointment. However, there are additional signs to look out for in your child’s day-to-day routine to help determine it’s time for a trip to Community Chiropractic Center:

  • Complaining of recurring or persistent neck or back pain.
  • Reduced or limited head and neck mobility
  • Uneven shoulders
  • Poor sleep patterns
  • Overcompensating while standing or walking

Are There Age Restrictions for When A Child Can Receive Chiropractic Care?

The good news is that there are no age restrictions on chiropractic care for children. These types of treatments for infants can help your baby deal with issues such as reflux, colic, difficulty crawling or standing, and breastfeeding problems. For older children, chiropractic care can help alleviate headaches, scoliosis, asthma, digestive issues, and misaligned spines. For kids with active lifestyles and who play contact sports, chiropractic care can be essential to keeping them on the field and engaged with their teammates.

The Benefits of Regular Chiropractic Care for Your Kids

Like with most adults who receive regular chiropractic care, kids can experience a wide range of benefits from their visits. They can recover more quickly from injuries and gain increased mobility in their joints and spine. Not only this, but chiropractic care can improve the quality of their sleep, decrease their neck and back pain, correct poor posture before it becomes a more significant issue and provide needed relief from nagging headaches.
