Can Children Benefit from Chiropractic Care?
One of the best things about chiropractic care (in our opinion) is that it's for everyone! You can be any age, any body type, and you don't even have to be in pain to get started. It's just a good thing to keep up on! Regular adjustments keep our bodies aligned, healthy, and is good for our overall wellness. And isn't that what we want for our kids?
Adjustments can benefit a little one even before they're born! Visiting Dr. Davis while pregnant has a lot of benefits. Doc makes sure mom's body is creating a great space for baby, helps get everything aligned for delivery, and is keeping mama healthy during this special time in her life!
So, once the baby is born when should they start seeing the chiropractor? Well, Dr. Davis and Jamie's son got his first adjustment at just 3 days! After all, birth takes a toll on a tiny body! Why not get it aligned right away and baby's wellness off to a great start??
Once a child is a little bit older, chiropractic care can be beneficial in so many other ways! Not only does it promote a healthy lifestyle, it can also help with specific issues you may experience like ear infections and colic. Dr. Davis can target certain areas to help drain the ears making a child (and their parent) more comfortable.
Another thing parents might struggle with is keeping their kids healthy during flu season. It's inevitable that the season will come, but a strong immune system can beat infections and sicknesses! Regular adjustments will align the spine making an immune system strong, which really, is great for everyone no matter the age ;)
As kids get older, more playful, and maybe join sports teams, getting adjusted can keep their bodies healthy. Kids are resilient and when they fall, they'll get right back up. Unfortunately, it seems they always fall back down! Which can lead to subluxations, or a partial misalignment of the spine. Over time, these can cause issues and pain or discomfort for a child.
With a new school year coming up soon, kids will be carrying heavy backpacks and sitting for longer periods of time. That can take a toll on their bodies, whether they're in third grade or a senior. No one wants to experience back pain, especially when they're that young!
Kids are meant to play, be kids, and have fun. By getting adjusted regularly, we're allowing them to do that with fewer interruptions and injuries! If you want to bring your child to visit Dr. Davis, let us know! We'd love to get them scheduled and feeling great! Or, if you're unsure about chiropractic care, we're always here to answer any of your questions. We look forward to seeing you!
