Chiropractic Care for Children - WHY?

Many people think that chiropractors treat only adults. But children can also benefit from regular chiropractic care. It’s common to see children being treated at Portage Chiropractic, especially since Dr. Herald’s low force adjusting technique is well-suited to kids aged newborn through teenager.  Dr. Herald provides highly skilled treatment that is very gentle.

Injuries that children experience during their everyday lives and while playing sports can cause symptoms that can be treated by chiropractors. This includes soreness, discomfort, stiffness or neck pain.  The most common reasons for parents entrusting Portage Chiropractic with their child’s care are:

  • Headaches
  • Sports-related Pain
  • Back Pain
  • Hip/Knee & Ankle Pain
  • “Growing Pains”
  • Colic

Why Chiropractic Care for Children

Children may experience trauma at birth that affects their body. Later childhood activities — like learning to walk, participating in sports or riding a bicycle — can also cause spinal health problems, or make them worse.

Even injuries that appear to be minor — such as a fall off a bicycle — can damage other parts of the body, such as the pelvis, skull, spine and limbs. Chiropractors are uniquely trained to identify problems in these areas.

Chiropractors can also determine whether “growing pains” are signs of more severe health problems. Regular chiropractic care for children may be able to head off problems that many adults experience later in life.

Types of Treatment for Children

When chiropractors work with children, they provide the same highly skilled treatments that adults receive. They use a hands-on, drug-free approach. Visits include a physical exam, diagnosis and treatment. In the case of children, chiropractors use a very gentle approach, suitable to the age of the child.

Children who already have a regular pediatrician — who provides medications and treats serious illnesses — can also benefit from a pediatric chiropractor. Much of the work that chiropractors do with children is preventative wellness care, such as helping their spine stay healthy as they grow.
