Here is Why Chiropractic Care is Beneficial for Kids

Kids going to Chiropractors is nothing new but it definitely seems like it to some people! There are plenty of people that think taking a child to see a Chiropractor is one of the craziest things you could do.

Why in the world would a child need to go and get checked or adjusted?

 

When people think of Chiropractors they kind of only think of back and neck pain. If you have been following us for a while then you know that at The Specific Chiropractic Centers – Lake Country we are much more than pain. We work with a huge range of people experiencing certain conditions. One of the groups that we work with a ton, is kids!

 

The even more surprising thing to people is that the kids that come in aren’t coming in because they have pain.

They are usually dealing with other things, some examples are listed below:

 

  • Digestion Issues
  • Chronic Ear Infections
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Anxiety
  • Autism
  • ODD/Extreme Anger
  • Colic/Excessive Crying
  • Sleep Issues
  • Bed Wetting

 

So why is Chiropractic beneficial for kids that are dealing with these sorts of things? No, it’s not some sort of Jedi mind tricks we are teaching these kids. It is only Chiropractic but not the “traditional” way you’re used to seeing. At The Specific Chiropractic Centers – Lake County we don’t do any of that twisting or popping…..we leave that for Rice Krispies! We use a very unique table that allows us to get as specific as we need to along with making it so we don’t have to do any sort of twisting. This is a huge relief to parents and kids, as even I think that way is scary!

 

The reason this works is due to the nervous system.

Often times kids who are dealing with the things listed above, they have a nervous system issue going on. Our goal is to detect this nervous system dysfunction and correct it. Once we are able to get the nervous system working how it’s supposed to, the body begins to heal and we see a change in symptoms. Like any healing process, this does take time but parents and kids are always happy to see the changes! This is how Chiropractic care is beneficial for kids! I hope you learned a thing or two and next time you hear about a child dealing with one of these things or your own are suffering, you think about reaching out to us!
