Kids and Chiropractic
Do chiropractors adjust kids?
YES. At Pleasant Chiropractic, we do. Most Chiropractors do, but some may choose not to.
Will chiropractic hurt my child?
Chiropractic adjustments are very gentle. Most babies can sleep right through their chiropractic adjustment.
What age is too young for chiropractic?
There is no age too young or too old to get a chiropractic adjustment. We adjust newborns that are just minutes old. And it’s not the same adjustment that adults get. It’s extremely gentle.
Why should my child get their spine checked? My child doesn’t have back pain, isn’t that the only reason one would need to see a chiropractor?
Symptoms such as ADHD, bed wetting, colic, constipation, congestion, ear infections, headaches, growing pains… are common ones that we have helped improve. Chiropractic helps with more than just back pain. Having a properly aligned spine can help with improving every function of the body. Everyone benefits with chiropractic care.
What would cause my child to have a spinal misalignment?
Spinal misalignments occur due to different stresses our bodies face in life. The birthing process is one of the many stresses that can cause a child to become misaligned and let’s not forget the several bumps, bruises and falls that occur during childhood.
Why should someone see a Chiropractor?
A chiropractor’s job is to help improve the communication between your brain and body, and they do this by properly aligning (adjusting) a misaligned vertebra. When you have a misalignment in your spine, it puts pressure on nerves which can cause your body to work too hard or not work hard enough.
Common symptoms of the body working too hard would be back pain, headaches, the inability to focus. After a Chiropractic adjustment several symptoms may decrease significantly continue to improve with consistent chiropractic care. Chiropractic is a safe, gentle and effective way to help your body function better. Let’s make this simple: No matter what age you are, If you have a spine, then you should see a chiropractor.
