Many parents are surprised to learn that babies, children, and teens can benefit from chiropractic care just as adults do. While chiropractic care can have many advantages for both children and adults, it is important that your chiropractor is specifically familiar with the gentle and cautious care required for pediatric patients.
At Chiropractic First, Dr. Todd Royse has the knowledge, experience, and careful hand to help your children with their chiropractic needs, from the day they are born to the day they leave for college.
Why is gentle chiropractic care so vital to children? Very simply, children’s spines and nervous systems aren’t fully mature when they are born – neither are the muscles in their necks and backs. At this time in their lives, it may be imperative for some children to have adjustments to make certain that they get the best start in life by ensuring that their bodies are able to function at an optimal level. It is of equal importance that the chiropractic care they receive is very gentle and very deliberate.
Over the years, we have seen our gentle care have a wide range of effects on children of all ages – from infants who were recovering from difficult deliveries to teens who had suffered a sports injury. We have even seen adjustments make significant differences with a surprising number of other common childhood issues that are seemingly not connected with the spine or nervous system, including nursing issues, sleeping issues, colic, ADHD, autism, asthma, chronic colds and infections, and chronic headaches.
