Why Should Children Receive Pediatric Chiropractic Adjustments?

Today, children spend a lot of time on their phones and computers, as well as long hours sitting in school. Often, this is done with poor posture, leading to a whole range of problems, including:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Headaches
  • Chronic back or neck pain
  • Digestive problems
  • Poor academic performance
  • Decreased immunity
  • Poor bowel function
  • And a host of other conditions!

Children suffering from these problems can’t reach their potential athletically or academically – and they end up living a lower quality of life.

Thankfully, pediatric chiropractic care can help realign the spine and major joints so kids can grow and thrive. Regular adjustments ensure your children don’t become chronic pain patients and that they can continue to achieve their highest potential! Most of the children treated at Algonquin Chiropractic Center are between the ages of 10 and 18.

That’s why we follow a simple, proven process to diagnose and treat your child’s pain, injuries and other musculoskeletal issues.  Here’s what you can expect when you choose our clinic for your pediatric chiropractic needs:

1. Detailed Consultation

During your first appointment, Dr. Galante will talk to you about your concerns, goals and your child’s medical history. He’ll also perform a series of non-invasive tests to help get to the root of any issues, which may include an X-ray.

2. Custom Treatment Plan

Based on his findings during the consultation, Dr. Galante will create a customized treatment plan for your child designed to address any concerns. His plan may include chiropractic adjustments and other holistic treatment modalities.

3. Gentle Chiropractic Care

Your child will receive gentle, safe holistic treatments like chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy, orthotics or other natural options. Their treatment plan may be modified as healing progresses to continue best serving your child’s needs.

Pediatric Chiropractic Benefits

Chiropractic care provides many benefits to your children that help significantly improve their quality of life and allow them to thrive as they grow. A few of the most significant benefits your child will likely receive include:

Child sleeping soundly

Improve Sleep

Even the slightest misalignment in your child’s spine could cause them to battle with interrupted or restless sleep. It may even make it challenging to fall asleep. With our chiropractic care, your child will experience more restful, deeper sleep – and reap all the added benefits of doing so!

Boost Immunity

Areas of compression or pressure within the spine can cause a compromised immune system, meaning children will get sicker more frequently. The duration and severity of those illnesses may also be longer. By gently eliminating that pressure, you can boost your child’s immunity, keeping them healthy

Maintain Mobility

Children are active and adventurous by nature, so they’re prone to accidents like falls that cause bruising, bumps and more severe injuries. These can throw the spine and joints out of alignment. Regular, gentle chiropractic adjustments ensure children maintain mobility and grow optimally!

Holistic pediatric chiropractic care can facilitate faster, more thorough healing of tendons, joints and ligaments.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is pediatric chiropractic safe?

Yes, chiropractic care is incredibly safe for your child when you see a licensed, experienced chiropractor. Not only is it safe, but it is incredibly beneficial for your child.

What does a pediatric chiropractor do exactly?

A pediatric chiropractor performs safe, gentle adjustments to children and adolescents. Although similar to a general or adult chiropractor, holistic treatment of children requires in-depth knowledge of developing bodies. Some chiropractors, like Dr. Galante, treat both children and adults.

What causes cracking during chiropractic adjustments?

The cracking sound heard during chiropractic adjustment is air and gases leaving the spinal joint space. Although the noise may sound a little overwhelming at first, it’s completely natural and improves spinal function. In turn, this decreases pain and increases mobility, reducing your child’s risk of further injury.

How can you choose the best pediatric chiropractor?

The best pediatric chiropractor will be dedicated to providing your child with a natural, drug-free approach to eradicating pain, improving mobility and generally increasing your child’s overall health. They should be licensed with the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners and possess additional certifications that show their dedication to holistic health. You’ll also want to try choosing someone with ample experience. Dr. Galante meets all these criteria!

How much does a pediatric chiropractor cost?

The cost of pediatric chiropractic care can vary based on several factors. The most important considerations will be the extent of your child’s treatment plan and whether they have health insurance that covers this form of care. For the most accurate cost estimate, contact Algonquin Chiropractic Center today.

Does pediatric chiropractic care work?

Yes! Chiropractic care has been shown to help children and adolescents with allergies, asthma, growing pains, hyperactivity and much more! Plus, it also helps with musculoskeletal issues like scoliosis, lower back pain and headaches.
