Pediatric Chiropractic Treatment
During a child’s development, the body cannot correct a misaligned spine. Instead, muscles and tissues will develop around the misaligned spine causing major health problems later in life. That is why we offer pediatric chiropractic care. Ivy Commons Family Chiropractic offers several chiropractic treatments for children suffering from colic, bed wetting, asthma, allergies, ear infections, back pain, and sports injuries. Chiropractic care can improve sleep, boost the immune system, improve behavior, and the nervous system. Chiropractic pediatric care is backed by The American Chiropractic Associations, and we often receive referrals from pediatricians to treat children and infants. Our team strives to bring the best quality pediatric chiropractic service for your child.
Treatment for Pediatric Illness
Our chiropractor provides several chiropractic treatments for children that are suffering from a variety of chronic illnesses and pains. We use chiropractic manual adjustments to align the spine to manage pain and increase movement in the body. We use special tables and devices that provide thrusts and adjustments to the spine, neck, arms, and legs. When performing chiropractic adjustments on children, we use gentler techniques to heed the best results.
Our chiropractor will design corrective exercises and stretches designed to treat specific injuries or conditions. These exercises improve coordination, stretch muscles and tendons, improve injuries, and reduce pain. We will also give training on exercises the patient can do at home. We often recommend exercise for sports injuries unique to each child. Our chiropractor may suggest walking, running, biking, swimming, working outside, gardening, or hiking as part of treatment. We can also use heat packs or ice therapy after chiropractic treatment to reduce pain and swelling.
