What is Chiropractic Care for Children?
Chiropractic adjustments and therapies for kids are natural ways to optimize a child's immunity and prevent injury to the spine. Instead of treating pediatric conditions with medication that can cause harmful side effects, adjustments address the underlying cause of pain and ailments linked to imbalances in the nervous or musculoskeletal system.
Childhood Conditions a Pediatric Chiropractor Can Help Improve
Allergies, bedwetting, sinus problems, and the following other complaints can be traced back to spinal injury or trauma during pregnancy and birth:
- Earaches and infections
- Digestive problems

- Infantile colic (persistent crying or fussiness)

Benefits of Pediatric Chiropractic by Our Front Range Sports Medicine Chiropractors
There is a general misconception that chiropractic adjustments are for adults only. On the contrary, the treatments are safe for the delicate spine of babies, toddlers, children, adolescents, and teens. Spinal adjustments correct dysfunction in the joints, bones, or connective tissue that may interfere with the smooth functioning of the nervous, musculoskeletal, and immune systems.
Our chiropractors mobilize the spinal structures using the gentle touch of his hands or a low force instrument in the precise areas of the neck and back. We may recommend soothing massage therapy to relieve muscle aches and help your child relax and stay calm.
While it helps to improve a range of childhood ailments, wellness care by a pediatric chiropractor can also have positive effects on a child's behavior, focus, academic performance, sleep patterns, as well as ADHD symptoms.
Drug-free chiropractic care for children at our family practice is also a preventive tool against sports injuries and spinal conditions that affect adults. They include degenerative disc diseases, arthritis, sciatica, and chronic neck or back pain.
