At Southeast Chiropractic: The Motion Centers in Gastonia, NC, we provide chiropractic care for the entire family, including pediatric chiropractic adjustments. If your child is currently experiencing pain due to an injury or accident, our team can provide treatment that will help alleviate the discomfort. Pediatric adjustments can offer a variety of benefits and you can learn about these below:
Chiropractic Care for Children of All Ages
Chiropractic care is beneficial children of all ages, from infants to teenagers. The treatments our chiropractors use can help improve your child’s sleep quality and duration of sleep. We also work to properly align your child’s spine, which can strengthen the immune system. This is important for children of all ages, and can help your child stay healthy. Chiropractic care can also reduce the frequency of ear infections and symptoms of allergies and asthma.
Benefits for Infants
Since misalignments can happen during the delivery process, chiropractic care can be helpful for your infant. Along with that, misalignments can occur when your baby is learning to hold their head up or starting to crawl.
Misalignment can trigger colic in infants, ear infections, and sleep problems. These can be treated with pediatric chiropractic adjustment, which corrects the underlying issue. Torticollis causes the baby's head to lean to one side, and can also be treated with chiropractic care. The techniques can help with breastfeeding as well. Proper alignment can improve latch and make the breastfeeding process easier for you and your infant.
Benefits for Toddlers
Proper posture is essential for your well-being, and it begins once your child is a toddler. Posture correction can promote proper spinal alignment and prevent future issues with your child's posture. Not only that, chiropractic care helps the nervous system function properly and improves coordination.
Benefits for Children
As your child grows, chiropractic care is still very beneficial. The treatment can improve symptoms of ADHD and concentration and even reduce behavior problems. Injuries also tend to happen often in children. Proper spinal alignment helps keep the body in balance, which significantly reduces the risk of sports injuries or those from daily activities and speeds up healing. Chiropractic treatment involves joint manipulation, therapeutic exercises, and other complementary therapies to help with the recovery process.
