You may think chiropractic care is only for adults, but did you know pediatric chiropractic care can help keep your kids healthy? Pediatric chiropractic care is a safe and effective way to support your children throughout their growth and development.
At Premier Health Chiropractic & Wellness Center in Carrollton, Texas, Dr. H. Khayal and our team have years of experience treating and preventing common pediatric concerns such as growing pains, musculoskeletal injuries, and digestive problems.
Chiropractic care isn’t just spinal manipulations and adjustments. It also involves looking at your body and health holistically, which is why it can be such a great addition to your child’s overall health care plan. Here are just a few things chiropractic care can do for your kids.
Support healthy growing
As children pass through various developmental stages, it’s common for them to experience discomfort in the form of growing pains.
While growing pains are often the result of sore muscles, chiropractic treatment can help relieve tension and align your child’s spine to get rid of their pain and prevent it from recurring.
Children are prone to injuries, whether they’re playing at school or participating in sports or other extracurricular activities. But you can help your young athlete recover faster by giving them the benefit of chiropractic support.
Whether your child has suffered a strain, sprain, or another injur, chiropractic care can help them bounce back quickly using massage therapy, personalized recovery exercises, and more.
With children spending more and more time looking at screens, sitting stationary, and exhibiting poor posture, it’s becoming more common for them to exhibit signs of ”tech (or text) neck” and similar conditions.
Over time, this can lead to symptoms such as back and neck pain, fatigue, and even tension headaches in your children.
Chiropractic care can help reduce your child’s discomfort by gently and safely releasing the tension in their back, neck, and shoulders.
Unlike traditional spinal manipulation and decompression used on adults, pediatric chiropractic care involves light pressure and gentle movements, so it’s fully safe even for young children.
Ensure early diagnosis
Regular visits with Dr. Khayal allows him to develop a baseline for your child’s overall health, making it easier to spot any concerning changes or symptoms.
This can help ensure that common pediatric conditions such as ear infections, digestive problems, and scoliosis are diagnosed early and treated effectively.
Treat bed-wetting and other conditions
Some elements of childhood are common but difficult to treat, such as bed-wetting, colic, and general fussiness. This is because they can be caused by genetic predisposition or environmental factors, making it hard to pinpoint underlying factors.
Chiropractic care is often successfully used to treat these common childhood ailments through gentle manipulation and comprehensive health screening. If your child is suffering from one of these common conditions, you don’t need to wait until they “grow out of it.”
Regular chiropractic care offers your child the gift of health by providing support through all stages of their growth and development. To book your pediatric appointment with Dr. Khayal, call our office at 972-713-9355 or schedule your free consultation today.
