Pediatric Chiropractic Care – Kids Need It
One report estimates that approximately 30 million pediatric visits are made to chiropractors every year. Wellness care is the most common reason for pediatric chiropractic care. With a desire for conservative care for their children and growing concerns over adverse drug reactions, parents are opting for more holistic alternatives.
More and more drugs are being prescribed to more and more children. Yet, the FDA has reported that giving medications to children – with safety data available only for adult usage – could be harmful. Understandably, no one wants to use children as guinea pigs for drug research.
Luckily, pediatric chiropractic care is a perfect fit for treating both musculoskeletal and non-musculoskeletal conditions. In fact, the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association initiated a ground – breaking study on the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic care for children. It’s no surprise that preliminary results show chiropractic care to be safe and effective for children. Even more significant is that parents reported unexpected improvements in their child’s overall health including improved sleep, improved behavior and attitude, and improved immune system function. Studies show that a healthy child stands a greater chance of growing up as a healthier adult, becoming a more attentive student and achieving their future personal goals.
Reports show an alarming trend of back pain and headaches among young people. Between their dare – devil stunts, athletic injuries, text neck, heavy back packs, poor posture, general stress and other conditions, your children can benefit greatly from pediatric chiropractic care.
Research shows that in many cases the child’s first spinal trauma and therefor subluxation occurs during the delivery process itself. Yeah, that’s right, regular childbirth!
Our goal is to help fortify your child’s immune system and keep their body structurally sound to heal naturally from injuries and illnesses. In one study, 20% of adult headaches started before age 10; 50% report their headaches started before age 20!
