The primary goal of chiropractic care for kids and infants is to support a thriving and healthy life.
A growing number of parents are seeking alternative, natural forms of health care for themselves and their children. Many of them are finding that gentle, holistic chiropractic care is the best alternative for themselves and their children as well.
Many of us have felt the need for Chiropractic care after an accident or a period of repeated stress on our back, neck, or joints. Have you ever considered the stress placed on an infant’s spine during birth? Chiropractors have discovered that many infants are born with spinal misalignments sustained during birth. If left untreated, these misalignments can lead to many health issues in infancy and throughout a child’s development.
As your child grows, they experience what we call “growth spurts,” during which it is common for the rapid changes in the child’s bone structure to cause spinal imbalance and misalignment. Chiropractors help make these periods less painful for your child and ensure there are no spinal restrictions or structural imbalances during this crucial growing time.
Since the nervous system is also developing during childhood, keeping the spinal bones in proper balance is of utmost importance. Any restriction of the spinal cord or nerves can have a negative impact on a child’s life and development. Chiropractic care is focused on maintaining a healthy nervous system and keeping your child on the path to healthy development!
Chiropractic care is a safe and effective treatment option for children of all ages. The amount of force used to adjust an infant is comparable to the amount of force you use to test a ripe tomato at the grocery store! As children grow, their spines take slightly more pressure to adjust, but in general, children respond much more quickly to chiropractic care than adults, and have tremendous results!
Whether your child is happy and healthy or is experiencing issues that concern you, feel free to bring them in for a thorough examination, regardless of their age. Our goal at Travis Chiropractic in Tulsa is to keep your child’s nervous system in healthy working order so that they can stay on the path of healthy development through every stage of life!
