Chiropractic care can help to address a range of musculoskeletal problems, including injury recovery, chronic pain, and sports injury recovery. While you may enjoy receiving chiropractic adjustments, you may not have thought about the benefits of extending them to your children.
Children can benefit from chiropractic care, just as you do. Parents can feel strange asking their child's pediatrician about children's chiropractic, because not all medical professionals recognize the benefits of chiropractic care.
Next time you come to the office, ask one of our experts at Sarasota Chiropractic, Physical Therapy & Massage about scheduling a chiropractic consultation for your child. We provide family wellness care and have special knowledge of how to safely provide chiropractic adjustments to children of all ages. Not all chiropractors have the appropriate level of training to treat children. If you decide to take your child to a chiropractor, make sure that the person you see has experience with treating children, as our staff do.
For parents, one of the first questions that comes to mind is, when is it okay to begin to take my child to the chiropractor? The good news is that children ranging from infants to 18 years of age can all benefit from chiropractic care.
Young babies may sustain bodily injury while learning to walk or while falling during play. Chiropractic care can prevent these injuries from developing into spinal problems. Older children may need treatment for sports injuries, falls, or poor postural habits developed over time. Children of any age with underlying musculoskeletal issues can also benefit from regular visits with a chiropractor. Since children may not know that this options exits, it's up to you as a parent to suggest that your child try chiropractic care.
Our chiropractors regularly see children, and would be happy to discuss how an adjustment can help your child. Have you ever thought about bringing your children to our office for an adjustment? Let us know in the comments.
