Bringing your child to see our chiropractor at Chiropractic of Bellevue in Bellevue, WA, may be a good way to promote physical balance and enhance overall wellness. We provide drug-free pediatric chiropractic services for babies and children from toddlers to teens. Spinal adjustment is a primary treatment modality for children experiencing ailments that may stem from imbalances in the spine or neuromuscular system.
What is Pediatric Chiropractic?
Pediatric chiropractic is a specialized branch of chiropractic care and is useful for treating or preventing certain conditions. It involves the use of low-force adjustment techniques specially designed for the developing spine and nervous system of pediatric patients. Parents who discovered the extensive benefits of chiropractic care for children are allowing their babies to receive their first spinal adjustment soon after birth.
Childhood Conditions a Chiropractor Can Help Treat
Trauma or injury can easily occur to the very flexible spine of a newborn during the natural birthing process. Similarly, repeated pressure on the spine from everyday activities, falls, or when the child is learning to sit, stand, and walk may lead to misalignment or even upset nervous system functions. Our Bellevue chiropractor can help relieve the following problems that may develop as a result:
- Colic (persistent crying or fussiness)
- Earaches or infections
- Trouble breastfeeding
- Difficulty sleeping
- Behavioral changes
Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Children
Kids who receive early spinal correction and routine care from our Bellevue chiropractor have an opportunity to experience long-term spine, joint, and immune health. Their brain and body will get a chance to grow and develop properly. Proper posture and balance help to reduce the risk of trauma. Parents may notice an improvement in their child's emotions, sleep, and behaviors. Regular adjustments also function as a preventive measure against chronic back pain and age-related spine problems.
Safe Pediatric Chiropractic from Our Bellevue Chiropractor
Dr. Owens has specialized training in performing spinal adjustments on children. Before delivering chiropractic care to your child, we will do a thorough physical exam which may include an x-ray of the spine. This helps in determining the underlying cause of your child’s symptoms.
Misalignment, joint restrictions, pinched or irritated nerves, inflammation, and lack of physical balance can be corrected with chiropractic adjustments. Spinal adjustment is a painless, non-invasive technique that involves manual manipulation of the joints, bones, and tissue. The repeated use of gentle force helps to reposition the spine and stimulate healing.
Soft tissue mobilization therapies such as therapeutic massages and gentle stretch exercises are adjunct treatments that may be performed to optimize relief.
