Common Questions About Pediatric Chiropractic
Despite what most people think, chiropractic care isn’t just for adults. Children can gain a lot through pediatric chiropractic care. However, parents have many questions when it comes to the health and care of their children – as they should. Dr. Sniezek and the team at Advanced Integrative Rehabilitation and Pain Center in McLean, VA ,and Washington, DC, answer some of the most common questions about pediatric chiropractic below to help.
Why Should Children See a Chiropractor?
It’s not always easy to see, but children’s bodies go through a great deal. Whether they’re learning to walk, playing at school, participating in sports, sitting at a desk, or carrying a heavy backpack, there is ample opportunity for the spine to be impacted. Visiting a chiropractor can ensure that any damage done is addressed immediately, preventing it from causing ongoing pain, suffering, and health issues.
How Safe Is Pediatric Chiropractic Care?
Pediatric chiropractors are trained in treating small, vulnerable bodies – and they have special techniques to do so. It’s a very safe practice and one that many children benefit greatly from.
What Benefits Will a Child Gain From Visiting a Chiropractor?
As with adults, the exact benefits can differ greatly. However, some benefits include:
- Better, more restful sleep
- Ensures proper spinal development
- Improves mood and focus
- Relieves headaches and tension
- Ensures proper healing of joint injuries, with less risk of future complications
All of these benefits can help children not only at home but also during school hours.
If I Take My Child to a Chiropractor, Does That Mean They’ll Have to See One Their Whole Life?
Chiropractic care is not addictive. It also doesn’t create damage that needs constant care. Instead, it seeks to correct any issues one might be facing and get rid of them for good. After correcting those issues, the patient can walk away from chiropractic care, but they might not want to. Most continue to visit for regular wellness visits to keep their spine in optimal shape.
