Chiropractic Treatment for Kids

Little ones can't tell us when their back hurts, all they can do is cry. A plop here, and a tumble there can wreak anyones back, especially children. Can chiropractic care help them? Of course! It should be part of your childs yearly medical routine.

Why do millions of parents bring their children to Doctors of Chiropractic every year?? Is it only for when their child is says "My neck hurts?" No, chiropractic is not just for injuries anymore. Chiropractic care is preventative medicine too. Keeping your child's spine in shape is a key to a long happy life.

Chiropractors remove road blocks in the body that interfere with the natural healing power running through the body. One we remove the road block by adjusting the spine, or treating the condition with decompression, the human bodies power to heal is unleashed.

Today we find more parents bringing their children to chiropractors for colds, sore throats, ear infections, fevers, colic, asthma, tonsillitis, allergies, bed-wetting, infections, pains, falls, stomach-aches, and just about every other condition imaginable, because the spine is connected to the rest of your bodies organs, via arteries, and nerves that spread throughout the body. Your kid may have a pain in the foot, that's not related to something they did out in the yard, it could be connected to a pinched vertebrae in the lower back, called a sciatica.

When you have a "pinch" in the lower, lumbar region of your spine, you are actually feeling the pain from the pinched nerve in your lower back. There are only 5 bones in your lower back, and these bones take a lot of punishment, especially in children. They run, jump, and do all kinds of crazy things on skateboards that we never in a million years would of dreamt of. So if your kid landed on his butt after doing " an awesome ooglie" and they are wailing in pain, it might be one of several things. They might have damage their sacrum, or their tail bone, which is very painful, or they could have a herniated disc in one of the five lower back vertebra (see image above). In cases like that, we may avoid traditional chiropractic adjustment for a time, and turn exclusively to decompression therapy.

Things have changed in the chiropractic world now that decompression has been invented. Spinal decompression is a pain-free method of adjusting the spine, so you can rest assured, your childs decompression therapy is safe, and most likely will become a "fun thing" rather than a scary medical procedure. You remember how scary things were when you were a kid. If you had to go to the doctors the first thing you said was, "Do I have to get a shot?" Imagine your kids begging, "Do I get to go on the wave table today, please, please?!" That really happens. You try the "wave table" and tell me if it isn't the coolest thing ever.

There's also some good news out related to the treatment of migraines. If you, or your child is suffering with migraine headaches, cervical (neck) decompression has been found to reduce the pain level, and the frequency of "sick headaches". This therapy relieves the pressure building up in your childs 7 cervical bones.

Talk to your kids about chiropractic. Explain how cool it is to go in for treatment. Tell them no shots, just really cool machines that stretch your bones. Make it a family thing. You will all live happier and healthier lives if you do. No kidding.
