Chiropractic for Kids?

Many people, even strong supporters of chiropractic, assume that you need to be an adult to get treatment. They think that it is adults, with their chronic back and joint issues, who need the healing adjustments a chiropractor can provide. However, there are plenty of children who get chiropractic treatments also.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 3.1 percent of children in the United States were treated by chiropractors in 2012. That works out to almost 2 million children, which is a substantial number.

There’s no reason why children can’t get the same benefit from Doylestown chiropractic treatment as adults. Their bodies are the same, only smaller, and they’re subject to the same bruises, imbalances, and other ailments as adults. In fact, with millions of children playing organized sports — many of them grueling contact sports — there are more opportunities for kids to get the kind of injuries that would benefit from chiropractic care. A child playing football or soccer can end up with a back injury that is just as painful as an adult who shoveled a driveway full of snow and threw his back out.

Doylestown Pediatric Chiropractors are specialists, and they can work wonders for kids as well as adults. Some youth coaches have been known to recommend chiropractic treatment for their athletes, and a growing number of parents are taking their children to chiropractors even for stubborn infections, colds, and other ailments that have not responded to pediatric care.

Chiropractic treatment is a great tool to add to the medical treatment options for your child.
