Can pediatric chiropractic care help your child during their development? And how does it work? Lots of parents and caregivers are looking for hope and answers backed by science that can help reduce the stresses that confront their children. Your pediatric chiropractor can help your child with their spine problems, postural correction, back and neck pain, scoliosis, and most importantly, to maintain healthy functioning spine during the developmental phase. 

Only 10% of the nervous system transmits pain, which means that children can have problems without any symptoms. Childhood is the most important stage of life—both physically and neurologically. About 90% of a child’s nervous system develops and matures within the first six years of their life and their spine changes significantly until their bone matures.  Children can benefit from chiropractic care to maintain a healthy spine. As a child grows, their spine undergoes many forms of development and trauma as they learn to crawl, walk, play, and become active in sports.

Signs a child’s spine may need chiropractic care

  • head tilt and favoring to look to one side
  • postural distortion
  • scoliosis
  • bum crawling 
  • scooting while crawling
  • poor sleep 
  • repetitive falling 
  • repetitive injury to the same area
  • repetitive leaning to one side while walking
  • frequent complaints of body and/or back pain 
  • headaches
  • irritability
