Understanding the benefits of pediatric chiropractic will allow parents to make the best decision for their children. Chiropractic care can help kids in a number of ways from improved behavior to better sleep.
Pediatric chiropractic care does wonders for children during the development stage. Proper spinal alignment is essential for the body and brain of each child. Pediatric chiropractors use special techniques for children that are safe and aimed at health, wellness and development.
Chiropractic treatment starts with an overall health and spinal examination of each child. At Bond Thomas Chiropractic of St Petersburg we understand that stress and misalignment of the spine can have serious impacts on your child’s overall health, behavior, and development.
We encourage parents to bring their children in to have their body and spine checked on a regular basis. Routine checkups are best, whether or not the child is experiencing any problems. With routine exams our pediatric experts may detect issues early on and treat them to prevent problems from ever occurring. If we determine your child’s spine is out of alignment, we perform gentle and non-invasive adjustments to the spine.
Sleep Benefits of Pediatric Chiropractic Care
Sleep is very important to children’s development. In addition, sleep is essential for daily activities, growth and overall wellness of children. A spine that is not properly aligned can lead to tight muscles and back pain. These symptoms can have a very negative effect on your child’s sleep. Chiropractic adjustments for children will keep the spine aligned and allow them to sleep soundly.
Pediatric Chiropractic Immune System
Pediatric chiropractic care is a great way to support the immune system and improve a child’s immunity to diseases. Treatment can also help improve the digestive system and help with stomach problems like constipation.
Never Too Early For Chiropractic
Trauma and stress to your child’s spine and body begin as early as birth. As children, they start walking, bumping into objects and falling, leading to some level of impact on their under developed bodies. Without the ability to communicate as an adult would, it may be hard to understand why the child is uncomfortable. Our pediatric team has experience with children of all ages. We can safely evaluate your child’s health and spine to determine any problems.
With growth comes more movement
More bad habits such as bad posture and improper use of mobile devices. Your child may participate in contact sports, greatly increasing the chances of a spine that is out of alignment. Responsibilities and daily living bring their fair share of stress to your child’s body and spine. Early visits to the chiropractor are essential.
Brain Development and Pediatric Chiropractic
Chiropractic care for your child will release pressure on bones and joints, as well as the spine. Treatments will have a very positive effect on neural brain development. With increased brain development your child will have better concentration.
