Chiropractic Care for Kids in Huntsville

children

A child's nervous system is the controller and regulator of all the other systems in their growing body. From blood flow, to brain function and bone growth, the nervous system plays a central role in keeping things working and healthy. Stress and misalignment of the spine can have serious impacts on your child's overall health, behavior and development. Chiropractic care is a gentle and non-invasive therapy that works to correct underlying issues before they become hard-wired in during development, providing support for a pain-free and successful childhood.


Why Do Kids Need Chiropractic Care?

It may be difficult to imagine that a child would need chiropractic care. They seldom complain of chronic pain the way adults do, and their bodies appear to made of rubber in the way they bounce back from injury. The truth is children's bodies are under a lot of stress while they are in state of development and keeping them healthy requires maintenance.

Stress and trauma to the body and spine commonly begin with the birthing process. Infant’s spines can easily become misaligned from the intense pressure involved in both natural and Cesarean births. Unfortunately, other than crying, they have no way of communicating their pain, and its source, to us. Throughout infancy they may sleep in awkward positions, and occasionally take a tumble. As children, they grow into toddlers who strain and twist and fall while learning to crawl and walk. Luckily, they are very resilient and can take a lot of impact, but it is not uncommon for these injuries develop into patterns of movement that will pull a child's bones out of alignment over time.

As kids, they may start to develop bad posture. Sitting in front of a computer or TV can have serious repercussions on the spine. Playing contact sports, wearing heavy backpacks (most likely the wrong way), even sitting in desks can all cause issues. As teenagers, they begin to deal with the stress of more daily responsibilities, such as becoming part of the work force and using their bodies to perform physical labor such as painting houses, serving tables and the likes.

As you can see there are plenty of opportunities throughout development for a child's body, and particularly their spine, to become out of alignment and to affect other aspects of their healthy nervous system function and development.


How Can I Tell If My Child Needs Chiropractic Care?

A child's spine can become quite misaligned without any awareness on their part of pain or discomfort. Children have not always developed enough awareness of their bodies to identify a subtle chronic issue developing. Even when a child is experiencing pain, they may not be able to communicate it to you and it can come across as grumpiness, acting out or incessant crying. Issues with the spine can also be the source of many other childhood issues, such as colic, ear infections and ADHD.


What is Chiropractic Care for Kids?

A chiropractic treatment for a child begins with an extensive examination to determine the exact issue and the best route for treatment. Even if your child is too young to communicate, or too shy, a chiropractor has the skills to work with them to find out exactly what is going on before proceeding with treatment, if it is determined treatment is needed. Gentle and non-invasive adjustments are then made to the spine. Children will often become relaxed and even fall asleep following treatment, a good sign that it has been effective. If you are concerned about your child's spinal health, call our team at Rocket City Chiropractic to set up a consultation today.
