While children are young and not as likely to suffer the same aches and pains as adults, it’s important that they have the opportunity for their body to function optimally. From birth, babies go through situations that can cause spinal misalignment. This can lead to colic and other symptoms in infancy. As they get older, they may suffer from back pain, headaches, or trouble concentrating. Sleep issues are also common for patients who need a spinal alignment. Give us at Moss Chiropractic and Acupuncture serving Idaho Falls, ID, a call to schedule chiropractic care for your entire family.
Is Pediatric Chiropractic Care Safe?
Pediatric chiropractic care is safe for many kids. The adjustments they receive are very gentle. For example, a newborn’s adjustment involves gently pressing near the spine. There is usually no pain for the baby at all. As the child matures, the adjustments evolve with them.
School aged kids who play sports can have spinal misalignment because of the stress sports put on the body. Our care includes adjustments that can help improve their performance and address the changes that come with their chosen sports.
As is the case with adult care, adjustments for kids are cumulative. The child will experience more symptom relief and increased overall wellness with each adjustment. Improved sleep patterns can occur as a result. It can be important that you keep all appointments so the child can feel their best and continue to excel at life.
What else Can Help Children Feel Their Best?
Our care is a great foundation to help kids feel their best. Some kids might also need to utilize the acupuncture services that our clinic offers.
Your kid may also be given other supplemental treatments to help address any aches, pains, or other symptoms they have. This can include things like dietary changes, lifestyle adjustments, stretches, or strengthening exercises. Your kid may also be provided with instructions on how to improve their posture, such as the correct way to look at electronic devices so they can avoid text neck.
