What chiropractic care for children does:
A concept known as Wolff's Law states that bones form in response to outside stresses placed on them. Proper joint motion is necessary for these forces to be distributed contribute to optimal bone development. During growth spurts, balance between the muscles and joints are very important. We can ensure that there aren't any restrictions or imbalances during growth spurts. Chiropractic adjustments can help optimize nervous system function which can help your child's overall health in incredible ways.
Adjustments for children:
The methods and techniques used for children differ from the ones used for adults. The basic concept of spinal manipulation remains the same for children as adults, but the amount of force, pressure, and techniques differ depending on the child's needs and their stage of development.
Some common childhood conditions helped by adjustments:
It is important to understand that Dr. Smith and Dr. Bailey will always recommend your child see a pediatrician when it is indicated, but chiropractic, nutrition and home care advice can often assist in caring for these conditions.
When and how often should your child come in:
We can begin care for your child at any age! Many Dr. Rob and Dr. Kevin have treated newborns, toddlers, young children and teens. Some of our patients will bring their newborn in soon after leaving the hospital. This allows us to examine the effects of possible birthing trauma. We recommend regular check-ups just like their pediatrician schedules. This allows us to catch any minor issues, before they become major.
