In our office we see kids at any age- from newborns to school age.
Among newborns and infants, the the most common problmes which can improve with chiropractic care are:
- digestion problems and constipation
- excessive gas
- execssive crying
- delayed motor development of a child
Of course there may be a lot of cuases of the symptoms listed above, however very often there is a connection between child's behaviour and spinal dysfunction which can cuase the nervous system's irritation. It is most often seen in babies delivered through a cesarean section or when forceps were used, or with any other labor complications. In those cases an injury to the joints, muscles or nerves in baby's neck is common.
Painless and safe chiropractic adjustments correct spinal dysfunction which allows the nervous system to work more efficiently, relieving symptoms like colic, pain and excessive crying.
Kids in school age more and more often suffer with conditions seen in adults, like chronic back pain, chronic neck pain, headaches, migraines, tiredness, muscle tension and problems sleeping.
Many of listed above are caused by sedentary lifestyle, lack of physical activity, bad diet and stress, which negatively affects the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractic adjustments and liefestyle intervention can restore optimal spinal health and function, allowing natural healing to occur, without using unnecesary medications.
