Kids and Chiros: A Smart Approach to Care
Chiropractic Care is Not Just for Adults
While most people think going to the chiropractor is an adult practice, the truth is that most kids could benefit from chiropractic care.
In today’s blog, I’m going to share my insights with you on how we treat patients under the age of 18. If you’re a parent, this is important for you– especially if your child plays sports.
Children under the age of 18 can totally gain many positive rewards from seeing a chiropractor. Chiropractic keeps the spine healthy by taking stress off the nervous system. This promotes the proper growth and development of the child’s nervous system.
In my years of practice, I’ve worked with children here in Boynton – and I’ve found that they respond very well to chiropractic care.
If your kid is active, know that chiropractic is extremely safe, gentle, and effective in maintaining your child’s health and promoting healthy development. As an athlete most my life, I know how hard young athletes are on their bodies. Chiropractic helps keep them performing at their very best by keeping their spines aligned and the nervous system functioning at its best.
We also want to think about this past two years –many children attended virtual school. If their home classroom wasn’t set up with ergonomics as the focus, they may be experiencing the same aches and pains as their parents. This includes neck and back pain.
When it comes to their initial appointment, the chiropractor will thoroughly examine and explain the process once the child and parent are in the office.
I hope this was helpful! If you have any questions about your child receiving chiropractic care, be in touch. I’m happy to help explain the many benefits they’ll get from coming to Optimum Life Health Center – Boynton Beach’s best chiropractor.
