What can chiropractic do for your child? Why do millions of parents bring their children to Doctors of Chiropractic every year? Is it only for highly dramatic health conditions? Is it only for when my child is hurting? Not at all!
A Chiropractor's purpose is to remove interferences to the natural healing power running through the body. When that power is unleashed the healing that results is profound.
Children are susceptible to trauma through everyday life experiences. The birthing process can be a rather traumatic incident in itself. If a mother must tolerate pain and discomfort during delivery, imagine how much pain and discomfort that newborn baby must endure to come into this world. Today we find more parents bringing their children to chiropractors for day-to-day health concerns we are all familiar with: colds, sore throats, ear infections, fever, tonsillitis, allergies, infections, pains, falls, stomach-ache and the hundred and one little and big things children go through as they grow up. Children are very active, as they should be; however, activities such as sports, rough play, sitting with poor posture and carrying heavy backpacks can strain their body.
Simple evaluation of an infant or child followed by a very specific, gentle treatment may help alleviate problems that children often suffer. Treatment is very simple and quick; many children enjoy being treated. Chiropractic adjusting techniques are modified to fit a child's size, weight, and unique spinal problem.
It is very exciting to treat children since children tend to respond very quickly to chiropractic care. Many parents and daycare providers report that children who receive chiropractic care seem healthier than other kids their age. Our children have responded very well to chiropractic care. When a child complains of pain consistently, you know it must be real. What is amazing is the number of children that tell their parents that they need to see Dr. Kim because they hurt or they are sick. Chiropractic care is safe for children and it begins in pregnancy and continues from infancy to adulthood.
