Chiropractic care is the same whether the patient is old or young. However, the young and developing bodies of children have specific needs. Children respond much faster and more effectively to chiropractic care than adults do because their bodies have not been subjected to years of bad posture or habits and illnesses that adults have.
Symptoms Your Child Needs Chiropractic Care
There are symptoms that parents can watch out for in their children to know if they may need chiropractic treatment, such as hunching or other postural changes, getting out of balance more often than usual, difficulty or limping while walking or running. The specific type and amount of adjustment used on children depends on their age and condition.
Starting Them Young
A child is never too young or too old to see a chiropractor. Newborn babies and infants up to 3 months old can be checked by a gentle and experienced chiropractor. And, like regular dental and pediatric visits, children must see their chiropractor every six months or twice a year. In case your child suffers an injury or trauma, visit to the chiropractor must not be delayed. You also have to seek immediate chiropractic help when you notice your child having problems with balance, such as limping or having difficulty when walking or running or when they tilt their head. Below are some of the most common childhood conditions that chiropractic care help address or provide relief from, not necessarily cure, and contribute to your child’s overall health.
- Ear infections
- Common cold
- Bed wetting
