Should my Kid see a Chiropractor? Highlands Ranch Chiropractor has the answer.

Chiropractors help children

A common misconception is that chiropractic is only for adults with back or neck pain. The truth is I personally adjust kids every single day in my Highlands Ranch chiropractic clinic for all sorts of reasons. Below is a list of the most common symptoms that kids commonly see a chiropractor for. As a matter of fact, the first time I saw my chiropractor, I was still in grade-school with a condition called torticollis. This is a severe pinched nerve in your neck that commonly affects kids after a whiplash injury or a hard fall on the playground or athletic field.

Your neck gets stuck to one side and your child can barely turn and bend his or her head without severe pain. Needless to say, after a couple days of chiropractic adjustments and you are back to running, playing, jumping off the couch like nothing was ever wrong.

This is one of the main reasons I became a chiropractor in the first place - to help children feel better and develop healthier. When I was trying to find a place to open up my 2nd chiropractic clinic, I knew I wanted to be in young community with lots of babies, toddlers, and children so I would be able to use my expertise and help all sorts of kids in my chiropractic clinic. Highlands Ranch is exactly that place!

Torticollis is just one condition that I commonly see in kids and its one of those conditions that chiropractic adjustments can help out tremendously. Here is a list of some other common conditions that kids may be prone to from time to time and that chiropractic can easily help.

  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Ear aches
  • Ear infections
  • Allergies
  • Constipation
  • Bed-wetting problems
  • Diarrhea
  • Heating problems
  • Asthma
  • Feet and ankle pain
  • Growing Pains
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Knee pain
  • Sleep issues
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Sinus congestion
  • Focus problems
  • Colic
  • Behavioral disturbances
  • Acid Reflux
  • Infants not wanting to breastfeed

Of course, a lot of parents also bring in their kids for wellness adjustments too. Keeping your spine aligned through the important development years is very important. The easiest way to get rid of a condition or disease is to prevent it in the first place.

Make sure your kids are growing and developing properly with regular spinal check-ups. Chiropractic is quick, easy, and very effective in keeping spinal hygiene correct. Just like regular dental visits, regular chiropractic visits are very important for our children and should not be overlooked.

Call today to get your child a chiropractic tune-up. It is never too early. Actually, the earlier the better in regards to developmental health. We often see infants in their first week of life. It is so helpful for the developing and growing infant to get a chiropractic alignment from day 1! Our Highlands Ranch office is always here to answer any questions you may have.
