Pediatric Chiropractic Care Benefits Children
Many people think about chiropractic care as being for adults, but this is a very good type of health care for children. Even newborns can benefit from pediatric chiropractic care. The team at Universal Chiropractic in Mississauga, ON, is here to provide top-notch care for every member of the family.
There are many benefits to providing your child with pediatric chiropractic care. This care helps to align the spine so the body can work as intended. This can help to address some of the more common issues with the musculoskeletal system.
Newborn and Infant Chiropractic Care
A baby’s spine starts to experience trauma as early as birth. Getting the spine into proper alignment can help with things like colic and discomfort so the baby feels better. The spinal adjustments that are done on children this young are very gentle, simply a little bit of pressure with the touch of a finger.
Children who receive chiropractic care don’t feel any pain or discomfort during adjustments. Our chiropractors are very gentle and take their cues about the child’s adjustments from the child. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment for your child.
Care for School-Aged Children
School-aged children put their bodies under a lot of stress. Everything from carrying a backpack to having to sit in class all day can put pressure on the spine. This can slowly cause the spine to slip out of alignment.
Spinal misalignment is even more common for children who play sports, especially impact sports like football. The adjustments children this age receive are a bit firmer than the ones for babies, but they’re still very gentle.
As the spine goes back into proper alignment, the child might be able to concentrate better. The kids may not feel aches and pains like what they might have considered normal before their adjustments.
Chiropractic care is cumulative, so everyone in the family can enjoy more benefits with each visit. Keeping up with the appointments and following any supplemental care instructions can enhance the benefits of the adjustments they receive.
