Pediatric Chiropractic

Kids playing outdoorAs chiropractors and fathers, Dr. Dan and Dr. Pascal are passionate about getting children off to the healthiest start in life with the help of chiropractic care. The birth process alone can be stressful on the spine of a newborn, so that is why the doctors recommend parents bring their infant in as soon as possible after birth for a check-up.

At Lindenwoods Chiropractic, we see children of all ages, from days-old-newborns to toddlers up to teens. Chiropractic can help with brain development and motor skills; among other benefits. Dr. Dan and Dr. Pascal love helping children flourish and enjoy optimal health!

The Power of Preventative Care

The biggest mistake people can make is to rely on pain or symptoms to know when to take action. It’s like waiting for the engine light to turn on to get your oil changed! Conversely, if you take your car in to get it serviced at recommended intervals, it can run properly for years.

Similarly, getting chiropractic care throughout life, starting in childhood, may help your body function optimally. So for kids, chiropractic can allow them to be closer to their full potential.

“As a parent of three boys I’ve seen them take a few tumbles down the stairs, play numerous sports, spend time on tablets and play video games. These stresses compounded day after day can affect a young spine in a negative way.” says Dr. Dan. That’s why we enjoy taking care of kids.

You’ve likely heard the quote, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” We agree. So a little bit of work, especially early on, pays much dividends later on in life.

Providing Gentle Adjustments

Parents who’ve never taken their children to see the chiropractor before may wonder how their kids will be adjusted. Rest assured that there’s a huge difference in terms of how we will adjust kids and babies compared to adults.

Kids’ spines are easier to adjust because they don’t have the years of scar tissue or injuries to work through. Oftentimes, it’s just a simple pressure on an area of the spine that allows for that adjustment to take place. Dr. Dan and Dr. Pascal also use a very gentle instrument to gently move the spinal bones into their proper position. In fact, babies often can sleep through their adjustment as we adjust them while their parent is holding them over their shoulder.

FAQ

Do kids need to come in for care as often as adults?

Often kids are able to heal and adapt much faster than adults. Therefore, most times they require less care or less frequent care.

Why should I have my baby adjusted soon after they’re born?

Sometimes the birth process can be difficult on a newborn’s spine. This can cause stress to the spine and nerve system which can lead to sleep issues, difficulty in nursing or feeding on one side compared to the other. Therefore, we want to address those issues as soon as possible by making a small adjustment to help them recover and heal as quickly as possible.

Can chiropractic help my child’s posture?

Considering so many children spend lots of time on their digital devices, playing video games, texting, watching shows on their tablet, the effect on their posture is only getting worse.
Chiropractic care can help restore proper movement and position to their spines. We can also suggest corrective exercises or stretches to help kids achieve a better posture.
