Pediatric Chiropractic in Ellicott City

boy and chiropractorChiropractic care is an essential part of your child’s overall wellness. In the United States, more than 17 percent of all chiropractic patients are under the age of 18, according to the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners. Of that 17 percent, nearly 8 percent are five years or younger.

While it may seem that children do not need chiropractic care at a young age, starting them with preventative care early on in life will set them up for a lifetime of health and well-being.

Your Child’s Nervous System

The nervous system, consisting of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves, controls everything in the body, including growth and development. Subluxations, also known as misalignments, in the spine can prevent proper communication from the brain to the body. These subluxations cause stress to the nervous system, leading to decreased function in the affected area.

Infants, children, and adults can all experience subluxations in the spine. Infants and children can become subluxated from birth trauma, other minor or major traumas, and developmental stress. During the first five years of life, the body produces more neural pathways than at any other time. It is vital this production is optimized through children’s chiropractic care, as these early years are crucial for each child’s potential.

Even if your child is in excellent health, minor traumas from bumps, bruises, falls, and spills accumulate over time, resulting in pain, discomfort, and/or health issues in their teen and adult years.

The Adjustment

The chiropractic adjustment is safe for patients of all ages, including newborns. After assessing your child’s spine, the chiropractor will gently adjust using either their hands or a small tool. This adjustment, alongside the use of chiropractic therapies, removes the subluxation.

Commonly Seen Improvements

Over the years, chiropractic doctors have received feedback about the benefits of chiropractic care for kids from parents and young patients reporting significant or unexpected improvements in sleep, behavior, attitude, and immune system function.

Additional symptoms and conditions patients have reported improvement on include ADD/ADHD, colic, torticollis, ear infections, bed-wetting, digestive problems, allergies, asthma, seizures, and more.
