Why do kids need a Chiropractor?
Newborns: Many of the spinal problems we see in adults began as early as birth. Childbirth can cause trauma to the fragile nervous system of your newborn baby causing misalignments in the spinal cord and putting stress on your baby's spine and developing nervous system. These stresses cause many of the issues commonly seen in newborn babies such as colic, breathing problems, nursing difficulties, sleep disturbances, allergic reactions and chronic infections.
At Tree of Life Chiropractic, we want to see your newborn as soon as possible to ensure their transition into this world is a smooth one. Dr. Chelsea and Dr. Carl have even done house-calls for their patients at the hospital or their home birth to be there the minute baby enters this world.
Babies: As your baby grows and learns to hold up his/her head, sit, crawl, walk and tumble it becomes vitally important that they visit us regularly to have their system checked as these activities all affect spinal alignment and your child's development.
Toddlers & Kiddos: When your child begins to participate in regular childhood activities like running, riding a bike, playing on the playground, etc. small yet significant spinal misalignments (subluxations) may occur. If neglected, the injuries during this period of rapid growth may lead to more serious problems later in life. Subtle trauma throughout childhood can affect the development of the spine leading to an impaired nervous system and prohibiting the body from functioning at its best.
Injury: We all know, kids get hurt. One of the most common reasons parents seek care for their child is trauma from a fall or injury of some sort. These misalignments may or may not result in immediate pain or symptoms. Regular chiropractic checkups can identify potential spinal injury, make the corrections, and help avoid many of the health complaints seen later in adults.
Symptoms: Another sought out reason for care is the resolution of a particular symptom or condition. Parents seek care for conditions such as colic, ear infections, asthma and allergies. These symptoms are often caused by misalignments in the spine and can be resolved by adding chiropractic care to your kiddos health regimen.
