Help Your Kids Thrive With Chiropractic Care

calm child adjustmentDr. Westover is a father of five and recognizes the incredible value of chiropractic care for his family. Regular chiropractic care for his children is one aspect of his family’s well-being routine that has significantly impacted their health.

Regular chiropractic check-ups for children might seem surprising to some, but it’s not always about fixing a problem; many times it’s about ensuring that everything is aligned correctly from the start in order to prevent those potential problems. Whether these issues are due to a long delivery or kids having minor musculoskeletal challenges, chiropractic check-ups help identify and address concerns before they become problems, fostering healthy growth and development.

Dr. Westover shares some other ways our natural care can benefit kids of all ages.

Gives the Immune System a Big Boost

Did you know that kids under chiropractic care often have stronger immune systems? By addressing misalignments and ensuring proper movement, their bodies function more efficiently. When kids’ bodies function properly, there’s less of a strain on their immune systems, allowing them to be healthier and more resilient.

Addresses Digestive Distress like Colic

For parents dealing with the challenge of having a colicky baby, chiropractic care offers a holistic alternative. By adjusting the lower back and pelvis, we’ve witnessed remarkable results in alleviating colic discomfort. It’s a natural approach that parents can consider before resorting to medications, emphasizing the importance of holistic healthcare for our little ones.

Manages Recurring Ear Infections Naturally

Many parents are frustrated with recurring ear infections in their children. Chiropractic care, particularly adjustments in the upper cervical spine, has shown remarkable results. By enhancing drainage in the ear canal, we help alleviate the root cause of frequent infections, providing relief without relying solely on antibiotics.

Detects Scoliosis Early: the Power of Prevention

While prevention is a key focus, pediatric chiropractors also play a crucial role in the early detection of issues like scoliosis. Scoliosis checks during growth periods help catch potential problems before they escalate, ensuring children enjoy a healthy, pain-free life.

Addresses Postural Issues & Pain Due to Screen Time

In today’s digital age, an alarming number of children are experiencing neck and back pain due to excessive screen time. Whether it’s using smartphones, tablets, or gaming devices, poor posture takes a toll. Our pediatric chiropractors provide relief through adjustments and educate parents on cultivating healthy screen habits at home.

Is Chiropractic Care Safe for Kids?

Unsurprisingly, one of every parent’s most common questions is whether chiropractic care is safe for their children. Rest assured that we don’t adjust kids like we adjust adults. Our methods are gentle and tailored to a child’s unique needs. Understanding these concerns, our doctors take the time to explain the process using hands-on techniques or specialized instruments for added comfort.
