Chiropractic 4 Kids
You may be aware of the ways that chiropractors treat adult aches and pains. But as a growing number of parents are discovering, chiropractic treatment is a gentle, noninvasive way to manage many ailments in children and adolescents.
Research suggests that chiropractic can safely relieve musculoskeletal pain in children. In a 2003 study published on the Journal of Manipulative Physiology Therapy, 62% of pediatric patients had substantial reductions in back pain after receiving chiropractic adjustments. Treatment of musculoskeletal conditions continues to be the number one reason why children receive chiropractic care. But chiropractic does more than treat conditions, it can help children improve their health through wellness care. In a 2009 survey, one of the primary reasons why parents took their child to see a chiropractor was for wellness care.
