Pediatric Chiropractic Care
Stress and trauma to a body and spine can start with the birthing process. It is hard to imaging a child would need chiropractic care. Children barely complain about pain or chronic constant pain, un like adult who can label pain and specific troubles. Truth is that kids as they grow are under a lot of stress and pressure as they develop and grow, and it can be hard to keep them healthy, and keeping them health requires maintenance.
When kids are infants their spines can become misaligned from the intense pressure of the birthing process. Kids cant talk, they can only cry and even at that young age then can not relay any communications that say ‘i am in pain”, all they can do is cry. As children grow, they sleep awkwardly, play hard, fall down a lot, they may even get bump from their toys… The more they grow the worse the strains, twists and impact will get. It is not uncommon to see these types of injuries and accidents in growing babies and toddler, then as they grow more over time these accidents turn in to bones and joints being pulled out of alignment, this can impact their development and movement.
Kids today in school are sitting all day at computers, hunched over at a desk, and playing all kinds of contact sports in gym and on breaks. We do know as adults sitting for long periods is hard, same goes for our kids. Kids and teenagers can be worse for using their bodies to take impact worse then working adults today.
The situations at play throughout a child’s early development has plenty of opportunity for misalignments, spinal stresses and jarring body impacts which can impact their nervous system and overall function.
