Is chiropractic treatment appropriate for children?

Yes, just as it is for adults, chiropractic care is a safe and effective form of health care for children of all ages.  Children tend to bounce back quickly following an injury and it is not normal for a child to be in pain for long periods of time.  Some indications that your child may require a chiropractic visit include abnormal postures, a reluctance to participate in physical activity, increased irritability, and crying for no apparent reason.  Some parents also like to bring their child in for a check-up as some conditions, if caught early can be prevented or monitored closely.  Infancy and childhood are times of rapid growth and it is important that muscles and joints are working as they should to allow for optimal development and an active lifestyle.

As with our adult patients, a history (often with help from you) and a physical exam will be conducted before we provide you with our clinical impression and treatment recommendations.  We will also be glad to answer any questions/concerns you may have regarding our treatments prior to starting.  If co-management with other healthcare providers is indicated we will recommend referrals and will be happy to work alongside other clinicians to ensure your child gets the best care.
