Know when to take your child to a pediatric chiropractor

What does a pediatric chiropractor treat? Back pain? Headaches?

How many times has your baby told you their back hurts? Neck pain? Headache? Right. Probably never.

Sometimes we don’t realize that our children’s struggles relate to the neck and spine. So, we don’t know that they have spine trouble causing the constipation, temper tantrums, constant illness, social anxiety.

A pediatric chiropractor can be like a God-send for you and your family.

The saying goes, “If mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.”  Nothing makes mama happy like knowing how to help her child!

How do you know when your child needs a pediatric chiropractor?

For babies, toddlers, preschoolers, elementary age children:

Your child is telling you they need help with their neck and spine when they have…

  • Colic
  • Sleep issues
  • Trouble nursing
  • Temper tantrums (losing-their-mind-angry for the smallest reason or no apparent reason)
  • Ear infections
  • Constant illness
  • Congestion
  • Constant raspy breathing
  • Developmental delays (the other children their age are already sitting, crawling, walking, running, talking, building, socializing…)
  • Constipation
  • Reflux
  • Picky eating
  • Destroying something for no apparent reason and moving on
  • Trouble staying focused on a task
  • Meltdowns at anything new… a new food, a new teacher, a new shirt, a new schedule, a new transition, anything unexpected…
  • Diagnosis of ADHD
  • Diagnosis of Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD)

Middle schoolers and teens:

  • Body aches, back, neck (anything to do with muscles and bones)
  • Headaches
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Severe irritability
  • Trouble staying on task
  • Ear infections
  • Constant congestion
  • Constipation or other digestive problems
  • Diagnosis of ADHD
  • Diagnosis of Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD)

How does chiropractic help with that??  Doesn’t a chiropractor “fix your back”?

A chiropractor adjusts joints in the neck and spine.  This allows for better communication between the brain and the body.  The brain can then control functions including the immune system, the digestive system, the sensory system, the you-name-it-system.

A pediatric chiropractor adjusts your child’s spine and neck.  Allowing their brain to communicate with their body and their systems to be controlled.

Above all, the brain can control the body systems once communication is restored.

What happens is your child’s sensory system, digestive system, immune system, and nervous system are able to begin working properly.

Which translates to…

Which translates to the exact opposite of the lists of struggles just outlined.  Worth it? Absolutely.

The whole process takes a series of adjustments for the body to adapt to the changes. For this reason, the changes in behavior and symptom resolve gradually.  However, it’s a possibility you could notice significant changes right away.

The emg scan of your child’s spine will tell us how long, how many, and what adjustments will be needed.

You’ve heard the phrase “everything’s connected”?  

Turns out – that’s thankfully and beautifully true!
