Pediatrics and Chiropractic Care: A Natural Combination
Many people associate what we do with auto accident victims, athletes coping with sports injuries or older folks who need pain relief for a chronic ailment. But did you know that we treat children too? Here at Oviedo Family Chiropractic, we regard pediatrics as one of our core services. Our gentle yet effective methods can be as valuable to younger patients as they are to adult patients.
Consider the many physical traumas a child faces even in the early years of life, starting with birth itself. During delivery a newborn's bones and tissues undergo considerable pressure that can cause spinal misalignments, including neck problems and other injuries that could play a role in future health troubles. A baby's body continues to receive a fair amount of stress as he or she learns to stand and walk. Imagine what falling down a dozen times a day could do to your neck or back. You would need spinal checkups and adjustments on a regular basis -- and that is why we recommend them for children.
Regular evaluations and adjustments can also help a child's body keep many common childhood conditions at bay. Spinal misalignments that impair proper nerve signaling can make a child more vulnerable to earache, colic, respiratory conditions, headaches and possibly even ADHD. If we can address misalignments early on, the nervous system can do a better job of helping the body function and communicate, allowing the child's body to heal itself faster and maintain a higher standard of health.
