Children Need Chiropractic, Too! 

  

Parents often wonder if we see children in our practice and what the benefit of chiropractic can be for them. Yes, we do see children and in fact Dr. Young has specialized post-graduate training in pediatric chiropractic care. The benefits for children are much the same as for adults. Remember, kids play hard and get injuries just like adults.

 

We recommend that kids (and adults) get their joints checked two times a year just like you would do for a dental check up. Having regular chiropractic check-ups is helpful in detecting and preventing problems early on. We know that the time when our joints are most likely to develop problems or existing problems to worsen is during periods of rapid growth.

 

child chiropractic adjustment 

 

In addition to routine spinal assessment, chiropractic can play an important role in your child's health care through many stages of development. Here is a break down of some commonly seen conditions that we can help manage in our office.

  • Toddlers 1-3 years: Low back pain, trouble walking, constipation or diarrhea, unusual stride pattern, an increase in clumsiness/tripping/falling, failure to start walking, trouble sleeping, ear infection
  •  
  • School-age 5-7 years old: Headaches, knee pain, growing pains, trouble adjusting at school, playground injuries, swimmers ear, bed wetting
  •  
  • Adolescents 11-15 years old: Headaches, scoliosis, growing pains, menstrual troubles for girls, sports injuries
  •  
  • Teenagers 15-18 years old: Growing pains more common in boys at this point, sports injuries, menstrual troubles and headaches. At this point their bodies start responding more like an adult so normal chiropractic rules apply
  •  
  • We also manage patients of all ages that suffer from the common cold/flu, allergies, asthma or digestive conditions. Most of the treatment here lies in nutritional advice, herbal remedies and lab testing.

Our practice blends the best of both chiropractic and holistic health care. Through adjustments, nutrition and natural medicine, we can help you and your child enjoy the benefits of good health and well-being. Make an appointment to experience the difference chiropractic can make in your child's health.

Which Vitamins Do My Kids Really Need?

Child_Vitamin 

Adequate vitamins and minerals are essential for our children's growing minds and bodies. Here are the supplements that we suggest you consider for your kids:

 

  • Fish oil: It has been shown to benefit respiratory, immune, mental and visual health. It is also important for improving sleep patterns and reducing behavior problems.
  •  
  • Probiotics: They are important for proper digestion, prevent overgrowth of yeast and other pathogens and help the body use certain vitamins. 
  •  
  • Vitamin D: This vitamin is deficient in most American kids and adults. This vitamin is a very powerful immune booster and is especially helpful when starting pre-school or day care. 
  •  
  • Multi-Vitamins: Most parents don't have the time to be the cooks they want to be much less know how to construct a perfectly well balanced meal.
