Adults aren’t the only ones who can benefit from chiropractic care. Pediatric chiropractic can help children grow into strong, healthy teens and adults. These FAQs from Chiropractic Health Clinic in Omaha explain more about pediatric chiropractic services and how they can benefit your child.
What is pediatric chiropractic care?
Chiropractic care is a natural, noninvasive means of treating musculoskeletal pain and discomfort and improving overall body function. Chiropractic techniques and therapies have been used for years to promote natural healing of musculoskeletal injuries, improve balance and coordination, strengthen bones and joints, and boost immune health.
Pediatric chiropractic addresses issues that negatively impact children and teens such as ADHD, anxiety, weak immune system, sports injuries, headaches, stress, asthma, and more.
What techniques do pediatric chiropractors use on children and teens?
Our chiropractor in Omaha may use such techniques and therapies as spinal manipulation, massage, therapeutic exercises and nutrition counseling as part of pediatric chiropractic treatment. Spinal manipulation helps keep your child’s spinal system in proper alignment. Misalignments in the spine can affect your child’s body function, growth, and development. Good spinal health is essential for body support, stability, and mobility.
Massage improves blood circulation throughout the body to improve overall health and promote natural healing of injuries. Massage also helps reduce stress and anxiety. Therapeutic exercises will help strengthen your child’s muscles and joints and provide energy for daily activities and sports. If your child has a weight problem, we can help him lose excess pounds and maintain a good weight through nutrition counseling.
Is chiropractic care safe for children?
Our chiropractor will adjust his techniques to suit your child’s needs. Even babies can benefit from pediatric chiropractic to reduce colic and improve their sleep. Working with an experienced pediatric chiropractor ensures your child benefits from safe, effective treatments.
What kinds of conditions can pediatric chiropractic treat?
Pediatric chiropractic care can be used to treat a number of conditions in children to include ADHD, anxiety, respiratory problems like asthma and allergies, digestive problems like constipation, mobility problems, body pain, and weakness. Our natural techniques and therapies reduce stress and anxiety to improve your child’s focus, concentration, mood, and sleep. With less stress, your child may have fewer behavior problems. If your child plays sports, there’s always the risk of injury. Chiropractic care can provide pain relief of sprains and strains, knee injuries, back pain and more and expedite your child’s recovery.
