When your child complains of aches and pains, you want nothing more than to help them feel better. Natural treatments often produce the results you’re hoping for while boosting your child’s overall wellbeing, and chiropractic is no exception. At Integrated Health Solutions, we provide a wide range of holistic services to help clients feel their best. There are so many benefits to pediatric chiropractic care. Our chiropractors have compiled a few of the most common benefits children experience.
One of the top concerns parents have is their child’s health. Every year, children get runny noses and fevers that keep them home from school. Pediatric chiropractic can help support your child’s immune system so that they have an easier time fighting off these illnesses if they do end up getting sick. Additionally, chiropractic can relieve other illnesses, as well as prevent certain sicknesses before they flare up. Chiropractic helps improve digestion, ease constipation and reduce acid reflux, which are all common complaints among children.
Sleep is an important part of a child’s development. Good sleep is essential to a child’s ability to function during the day, as well as grow. Unfortunately, early start times for school can make it difficult for children to get adequate sleep. Poor sleep is sometimes caused by painful conditions that keep a child awake at night. Spinal issues can cause back pain and headaches that disturb your child’s sleep, leading to restless nights for both of you. Gentle chiropractic maneuvers improve these conditions, which in turn lets your child rest easy.
Children experience stress too, and this can affect them emotionally and physically. Stress is particularly troublesome for children as they typically don’t know how to cope with these complex feelings. As a result, they may act out inappropriately. Reducing stress with chiropractic can improve a child’s behavior.
Studies point to chiropractic as an effective treatment for anxiety and depression. Young children are not immune to these mental health conditions, and they can have lifelong impacts when left untreated. Chiropractic supports your child’s emotional wellbeing, as well as their neural brain development. As a result, your child will have an easier time focusing at school.
Babies have unique health needs, and chiropractic is a safe way to address them. According to various studies, regular chiropractic adjustments during the early stages of life may help promote baby’s physical development and ease colic symptoms.
