Pediatric chiropractic care is a gentle treatment modified to a child’s size. Pediatric care involves a thorough history and detailed physical examination including full spine, muscle and motion palpation to determine necessary treatment.
Chiropractic care can assist with health complaints such as nursing difficulties, like latching and sleeping difficulties.
Like adults, children and teens can also experience musculoskeletal pain and injuries to the back, neck, knees, shoulders and other areas of the body. The assessment and technique used to manage these issues are similar to those of adults, but gentler and adjusted to the body and age of the patient based on development. Chiropractic care can assist in the treatment of injuries related to falls, sports, and day-to-day life! Depending on the symptoms, treatment can include gentle mobilizations or manipulation, soft tissue therapy, exercise, postural correction and lifestyle counseling.
