Health Benefits of Pediatric Chiropractic Care

As anyone with children knows, kids never seem to stop moving. They’re always on-the-go, learning, exploring and playing — but all that activity can put significant stress on their developing bodies. Pediatric chiropractic care helps your child thrive by restoring and maintaining appropriate spinal alignment, which in turn, helps maintain the integrity of both the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. And, when the spine is healthy, it facilitates optimal functioning of every system within your child’s body. Pediatric chiropractic care encourages:

Balance and Physical Performance Improvements
Your child is constantly learning, moving, and exploring his or her environment. Part of that exploratory process includes learning how to move with balance, power, strength and intention, but it takes many falls, bumps, bruises and minor injuries to achieve success. When your child is highly active — as most kids are — his or her musculoskeletal system absorbs force on a near-constant basis.

Often, spinal misalignments and musculoskeletal imbalances develop as a result of high activity, which can impede normal physical functioning and trigger nagging discomfort. As we bring your child’s body back into balance, we restore normal physical and system functioning, helping your child to move, play and explore to the best of his or her ability.

Immune System Strengthening
Your child’s nervous system controls the development of the entire immune system, so naturally, a properly functioning nervous system is essential for immunity. When spinal misalignments are present, your child’s nervous system cannot function as designed due to abnormal nerve compression in various locations throughout the spine.

As we correct misalignments, we gradually restore proper spinal positioning, which allows those nerves to resume normal functioning. Regular, gentle chiropractic adjustments foster a high-functioning nervous system, encouraging the healthy development of your child’s immune system.

Developmental Improvements
Your child’s spine houses the nerves that control the development of the entire body, playing an integral role in growth and overall systemic functioning. Spinal misalignment places pressure on the nerves that stem from the spinal cord, which impedes normal nerve function and communication.

By gradually bringing your child’s spine back into proper alignment, we restore normal nerve signaling, which allows communication and feedback to travel freely between the brain, spinal cord, and the rest of the body. This correction encourages a synergistic internal ecosystem that fosters optimal neurological and physical development.

What to Expect With Pediatric Chiropractic Care

At Fox Integrated Health, we begin your child’s pediatric chiropractic care with a consultation to discuss current health concerns and individual needs. If we believe your child a candidate for treatment, we’ll then perform a comprehensive physical evaluation and health history. This assessment allows us to gain a deep understanding of your child’s unique health concerns and helps us arrive at the most informed diagnosis possible.

After completing the evaluation, Dr. Derek Fox or Dr. Audrey Kenyon-Fox will discuss the findings with you and formulate an individualized plan of care for your child. Ongoing frequency of chiropractic treatments will depend on your child’s condition, lifestyle habits and response to conservative care.

Pediatric Chiropractic Care: Frequently Asked Questions

For the first several years of your child’s life, he or she is constantly growing, which places considerable stress on the body and its many interrelated systems. Because the nerves that control development and overall function stem from the spine, even minor misalignments can trigger suboptimal development and health issues.

Misalignments occur in children for a variety of reasons, including the birthing process, injuries, and everyday play activities. Unfortunately, when left uncorrected, those misalignments almost always grow more severe — that’s why pediatric chiropractic care is so important!

Chiropractic care is a safe, gentle, natural and effective therapeutic approach for addressing a wide variety of youth health concerns. Because your child’s spine functions to protect the nervous system, maintaining a strong and healthy spine is essential for optimal development and overall well-being. Routine chiropractic treatments restore and maintain musculoskeletal balance, helping your child to grow, explore and thrive.
