Pediatric Chiropractic Care From Our Chiropractor in Little Rock
One of the most important parts of the human body is the central nervous system, which consists of the spinal cord and the brain. Nerves in the spinal cord go to every organ, muscle, tissue, gland and cell of the body. The spine works similar to a central fuse box, in that it protects the nerves, so if the spine becomes misaligned, it’s similar to a blown fuse, creating certain physical or emotional health problems in children. The good news is a pediatric chiropractor in Little Rock can realign the spine, preventing the spine from growing crooked and preventing or eliminating health problems.
How Do Children Benefit from Pediatric Chiropractor Care?
Your child’s spine develops rapidly during their first ten years of life. Unfortunately, it is also during this time when their body undergoes extensive stress from carrying heavy backpacks, continually bending over to use to electronics, sports injuries and poor posture. Adjustments by a chiropractor in Little Rock can give kids an upper hand in preventing many childhood illnesses by reducing the physical stress on their spine.
What Can Chiropractic Care Help With?
When the spine isn’t functioning correctly, it can result in symptoms from various problems with muscles and/or organs within the body. Some of the physical and emotion problems that can benefit from chiropractic care include:
- Ear infections
- Bed wetting
- Poor posture
- Trouble sleeping
Chiropractic care helps to promote overall relaxation in muscles and joints, relieves pain from accidents and sports injuries, builds flexibility, improves circulation, improves immune system function and improves recovery time for illness.
Is Chiropractic Treatment Safe For Children?
Yes, pediatric chiropractic care is completely safe for children of all ages. In fact, the earlier chiropractic treatment is started, the more benefits and advantages the child will have to prevent or reduce spinal problems.
Is Chiropractic Care Painful?
Pediatric chiropractic care is typically not painful, but in some situations young infants may react with fright at the sudden movement. However, in the majority of situations, chiropractic adjustments are generally pain-free for kids and may provide an instant feeling of relief, especially when they experiencing back or neck pain.
