Chiropractic for Kids in Grand Falls

“Chiropractic care for my child? Why? Her back doesn’t hurt?”

Grand Falls Pediatric Chiropractor

We tailor our adjustments, even for babies

Many parents appreciate the importance of regular checkups for their children’s teeth, hearing and vision but draw a blank when it comes to a spinal checkup. A spinal checkup could be one of the most important checkups your children will ever have. The spine protects billions of nerve fibers that send messages and energy to every part of their bodies.

The spine protects billions of nerve fibers that send messages and healing energy to every part of the body. Spinal subluxations interfere with that flow of messages. Regular chiropractic care helps your child function at his/her best which gives him/her a better brain-body connection and therefore better overall health and vitality.

Wouldn’t you want that for your growing baby or child?

I have 3 well adjusted kids who are checked regularly. They fall, play sports, have bad posture at school, carry heavy book bags, sleep in funny positions, play on their electronic devices etc… By correcting their spines on a regular basis, these spinal subluxations never develop into a big problem, therefore allowing them to grow straighter and with better health and vitality. They are also very rarely sick, and if they are, they heal very quickly without prescription or over-the-counter drugs.

Spinal Examinations

On top of our regular monthly check ups, we recommend a minimum of 5 critical spinal exams:

The first week – recovering from birth
At 2 months – holding head up
At 6 months – sitting up
At 8 months – crawling
At 11 months – standing and /or walking
Regular monthly checkups

Chiropractors tailor the adjustments to children. Special instrument or finger light pressure is all the spine needs most of the time when adjusting children. Children love to be adjusted and usually respond very quickly.

Infants and Babies

A simple spinal check up now can make a big difference to your child’s health forever. From the time of the birth process, the spine (which houses the important nerve pathways of the spinal cord) can be injured in a variety of ways. The birth process itself is always a stress on the child’s structure.

Common symptoms/dysfunctions often seen in infants often helped by chiropractic adjustments:

Colic
Irritability
Gas
Difficulty feeding
Seizures
Developmental delays
Ear infections
ADD/ADHD
Stomach and Respiratory Disorders
Neurological Diseases

Let us help you give your child a great head start in life

Your children may have subluxations in their spines and not know it. Those first hesitant steps soon evolve into jumping and running; falls and accidents are all part of a normal childhood. While most falls are minor, at times they can cause spinal, nerve-damaging vertebral subluxations with serious long-term consequences. For that reason all children need periodic chiropractic spinal check-ups.

Scoliosis is a progressive sideways curvature of the spine. It can be more serious in children because it rapidly progresses as the child grows.

This is also an opportune time to check your child for scoliosis (between 6-13 years of age). A few spinal subluxations can set the stage for scoliosis as the growth of your child occurs. Research shows that 2-4% of children will develop some form of scoliosis and that 40% of adults aged between 50-80 have scoliosis. We see better results for scoliosis treatments when it’s detected early and treated correctly.

Common conditions that respond very well to chiropractic adjustments include:

Skin problems
Sinus problems
Poor concentration
Stomachaches
Constipation
Ear infections
Painful arms and legs
Poor posture
Scoliosis
Neck and back pain
Abnormal spinal curvatures
Headaches
Bed-wetting
Allergies
Uneven hips or shoulders
