Pediatric Chiropractic Treatment in Garden City, MI
Chiropractic is the relationship between the form and function of the spine and nervous system. When vertebrae become misaligned (called “vertebral subluxation”), they can affect the functioning of the nervous system, which is important for controlling functions and communication in the body.
Chiropractors can evaluate these conditions and using a “hands-on” approach, they manipulate and adjust these vertebrae and “fix” the spinal dysfunction so that functionality, nerve function, and movement can be improved.
What is pediatric chiropractic treatment?
Pediatric chiropractic treatment is growing in popularity because many parents, especially those who are themselves chiropractic patients, are finding this an effective method for dealing with various childhood ailments.
Pediatric chiropractic treatment identifies and corrects back, neck and spinal problems in children. Most chiropractors are trained to identify pediatric spinal issues, and after conducting a thorough history of the child’s health and any ailments they will use their skill and a gentle technique to adjust the problem.
Although pediatric chiropractic treatment involves using the same methods for children as used on adults, the approach is gentler and adapted for the infant spine and cranium.
Young children and babies are given light fingertip pressures to manipulate the spine, which enables the “unlocking” of spinal joints so the nervous system can function normally.
The procedure is usually painless unless the ailment is related to an injury, which may already be causing discomfort.
Can pediatric chiropractic treatment help any other conditions?
Yes, pediatric chiropractic treatment can be helpful in alleviating a range of other issues such as birth trauma in newborn babies, colic, bed-wetting, asthma, ear infections, scoliosis, and ADHD.
