Chiropractic Care for Developing Nervous Systems

Communication to every area of the body is impacted when the nervous system is impaired and can negatively affect neurological development and respiratory function among other possible pediatric health issues. A healthy nervous system is the foundation for optimal child development and the root of many conditions that are particular to babies and children. In addition, pediatric conditions can be difficult to diagnose due to the limited communication abilities of infants and small children. Action Chiropractic and Sports Injury Center chiropractors are trained to provide accurate assessments of a child’s spine beginning at birth when imbalances can occur.

Pediatric Problems Treated by a Chiropractor

If your baby is continually crying, has difficulty breast-feeding, suffers from colic or sleep problems, the actual underlying problem may be rooted in the nervous system and not so readily apparent. Action Chiropractic and Sports Injury Center pediatric chiropractic care promotes the healthy development of your child’s nerves, muscles, ligaments and bones that mobilize the nervous system and stimulate natural healing. Linked to significant improvement for a variety of conditions from ADHD and allergies, to autism and other developmental delay syndromes, a pediatric chiropractor begins with a review of your child’s medical history followed by a physical examination of the child’s spine. Our licensed chiropractors use gentle, manipulation techniques that are appropriate to treating the spine and cranium of young babies and children.

Chiropractic Spinal Adjustments for Kids

SSoothing chiropractic adjustments for children involve very light pressure applied to the spinal column to restore joint mobility and stimulate proper nerve function. Even though your child may have an ear infection or an unrelated condition such as ADHD; addressing and balancing a child’s nervous system with chiropractic care provides the basis for natural healing to occur. Most kids tend to respond more favorably to chiropractic care and often require minimal treatment. Our Wheaton clinic is fully equipped with specialized equipment that allow for safe and gentle treatment.

Is Chiropractic Care for Children Safe?

Chiropractor care has been used to treat children’s spines and a variety of pediatric disorders for literally hundreds of years with an excellent safety record. Action Chiropractic and Sports Injury Center techniques are gentle, safe and effective and performed by qualified Wheaton chiropractors who work closely with other health care providers to share knowledge and expertise in pediatric related conditions. A recent study conducted by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) in the United States, Canada, and Europe revealed that for every 10,000 visits made to a pediatric chiropractor, only a few children responded with slight discomfort and the remaining children who were treated showed significant improvement and had no adverse health effects.
