Kids and Chiropractic

Dallas Chiropractic Care for ChildrenBy now you have experienced firsthand the benefits of chiropractic care to your health.  But what about your children?  Have you ever considered bringing them in for a chiropractic checkup?

Surprisingly, the first stress placed on a child’s spinal column is during the birthing process.  Equally surprising is the fact that 26% of children surveyed at school reported a history of back pain.  A child’s spine is frequently subjected to repeated forces in the process of learning to walk as well as a multitude of childhood mishaps, sports related injuries, and postural strains.  Many adults that come to a chiropractor’s office show evidence of childhood in-juries to their spine that are a contributing factor for their pain today.  This is why it is important to have your child’s spine checked regularly for any signs of spinal imbalances or misalignments.

Fortunately, chiropractic has had many positive results in treating some very common childhood maladies.  Problems like colic, headaches, ear infections, scoliosis, asthma, and even some cases of behavioral problems and bed-wetting have been successfully treated with chiropractic care.  In fact, a recent study showed that children under chiropractic care suffered from fewer ear infections than those whose parents sought medical care alone.

Are chiropractic adjustments safe for children?

Absolutely!  Because a child’s skeletal system is still developing, there is a great deal of elasticity within the joints.  Light pressure is usually all that is needed to adjust a child’s spine. So the next time you come to our office, bring your children.  The few minutes you invest in your child’s spinal checkup may save them needless suffering now and in the future.
