Pediatric Chiropractic Care at S.M.A.R.T. Spine Institute and Surgery Center
Who benefits from chiropractic care? Your first answer to that question might be athletes, or accident sufferers, or seniors battling chronic pain. But children -- including your own kids -- can also benefit tremendously from this safe, effective form of health and wellness care. That's why we offer pediatric chiropractic care here at S.M.A.R.T. Spine Institute and Surgery Center in Arcadia CA.
Why Kids Need Chiropractic Adjustment
Childhood is rough on the body. Even the process of being born can cause newborn infants to sustain subluxation (joint misalignment) that can later affect their growth, comfort, and development. As infants become toddlers, they can crawl, walk, and stumble their way into numerous bumps and jolts that can alter their spinal alignment -- possibly impairing their nerve signaling and systemic function as a result. School adds a whole new set of physical challenges, including rough-and-tumble play, high-impact sports, and the stress of carrying heavy backpacks around.
A Lifetime of Care from Your Arcadia CA Chiropractor
Any Arcadia CA chiropractor on our team will be happy to help your child thrive through pediatric chiropractic care. As administered by our skilled chiropractic team, gentle musculoskeletal adjustments are completely safe and highly beneficial for babies even in their months of life, helping to start them on the easiest possible path toward a lifetime of good health and proper development. Chiropractic care's ability to normalize joint position, nerve signaling, and overall physical functions makes it a popular means of treating or preventing such common childhood ailments as colic, ear infections (a side effect of impaired immune function), ADHD, allergies, and asthma.
As children enter school, it's a smart idea to schedule annual spinal screenings at the beginning of each academic year, just to make sure they're in tip-top shape for sporting events and everyday activities. We can also check for the earliest signs of scoliosis, an abnormal curvature that sometimes occurs around adolescence. Athletic injuries or other aches and pains can respond nicely to chiropractic adjustments and other forms of sports medicine. We can even serve as your kids' trusted wellness advisors, educating them on such valuable topics as how to load and wear school backpacks safely. Best of all, by accustoming your children to regular chiropractic visits, you're setting a standard for a lifetime of good habits and optimal health.
