Oftentimes, people think that chiropractic treatments are available only for adults. The truth is, nearly anyone at any age can benefit from the natural, holistic methods used in chiropractic care. At Advanced Family Chiropractic and Rehabilitation, we are pleased to offer the services of a pediatric chiropractor, who can provide the benefits of chiropractic medicine for the entire family.
Pediatric Chiropractic Care
Many traditional chiropractic techniques can be modified for use on children. Since children experience many of the same accidents and injuries as adults, they can frequently benefit from chiropractic adjustments to joints and other methods designed to treat muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Chiropractic techniques are scientifically tested and validated as safe and effective before use on any patient, adult or child. However, we take special care to ensure that our child patients have a positive experience in our clinic. We use gentle adjustments to help children develop proper posture, or to help the natural healing processes of their joints, cartilage, or soft-tissues.
We also offer an alternative to traditional remedies for children’s health complaints, like colds, ear infections, or digestive issues. Frequently, traditional medical doctors prescribe a course of harsh chemical drugs or expensive and painful surgeries. Sometimes they instead dismiss a child's complaints as part of the ordinary course of growing up, something a child will outgrow in due course. Too often, the child instead grows into a lifetime of ill health and permanent, chronic, disease.
Our remedies are based upon the science behind the body's natural growth and healing processes. We work to develop individualized treatment plans for each of our patients, based upon their needs and age.
We also offer an alternative to medication for childhood learning issues, like ADHD and autism. While some cases are difficult and every case is unique, there are often underlying lifestyle, diet, and nutritional challenges, or a set of common childhood ailments, which often prove to be root causes for behavioral and learning disorders. Traditional medicine relies upon chemicals to treat symptoms, and does not always recognize, let alone effectively treat, the underlying problems faced by a child patient.
