What Is Chiropractic Care for Children?
Chiropractic care is a holistic practice that strives to improve the functioning of the whole body by improving the functioning of the nervous system. Spinal manipulation and other chiropractic treatments help the brain communicate better with the rest of the body, which can boost the immune system, promote healing, and prevent chronic health conditions.
Spinal manipulation is the treatment most people think of when they think of chiropractic care. This procedure helps eliminate subluxations and restore the natural alignment of the spine. Other techniques that are used in pediatric chiropractic care include nutrition counseling, physical therapy, and massage therapy. Our pediatric chiropractor offers a full range of chiropractic treatments for patients of all ages, including children.
The Popularity of Chiropractic Care for Children Is Rising
In 2009, there were more than 68 million pediatric chiropractor visits. This is more than double the figure for just nine years earlier. In fact, approximately 3% of all children have visited a chiropractor at least once in their lives.
Is Chiropractic Care for Children Safe?
There have been several studies examining the safety of chiropractic care for children. These studies have found a very low instance of mild adverse effects. This treatment has much lower adverse effects than most other types of medical treatments.
A 2007 study found just nine adverse events in 110 years of pediatric chiropractor treatments. Considering the number of pediatric chiropractic care visits over the past 110 years, that number is astonishingly low. The risk from chiropractic care is generally considered to be minimal, regardless of the age of the patient.
