5 Reasons to Schedule Your Child an Appointment with a Pediatric Chiropractor

5 Reasons to Schedule Your Child an Appointment with a Pediatric Chiropractor

December 22, 2020

Our chiropractic team knows that, as a parent, there are few things more painful than seeing your child in discomfort. Even though you cannot protect your child from every discomfort they will encounter in their life, there are steps to take that can prepare their bodies and mind for whatever the world has to throw at them. From a seasonal cold to anxiety, a chiropractor at Integrated Health Solutions can provide natural, drug-free treatment options specifically designed to get your child back to their healthy, happy state.

In the past decade, pediatric chiropractic treatment has erupted into the medical scene. Not only is it completely safe for a child of any age, including infants, but it is also highly effective. Compared to antibiotics, the adverse reactions to spinal adjustments in children are close to none. The CDC has estimated that antibiotics are responsible for 56 percent of emergency medical visits in children five and under. While those numbers illustrate a glaring reason to have your child examined by a chiropractor, our team has put together five reasons why you should schedule an appointment with Integrated Health Solutions’ pediatric chiropractor.

Behavioral Support

We all have different ways that we deal with stress. For children, dealing with stress can be difficult, especially if they have not yet developed useful and healthy coping mechanisms. For this reason, children often act out in an attempt to relieve these feelings in their bodies. Just as a chiropractic treatment can assist adults with their stress, pediatric chiropractors can perform treatment on your child to assist with the stress that is causing tension and anxiety throughout their body.

Improve Sleep Patterns

Chiropractic treatment releases stress and anxiety that causes your child to have difficulty falling and staying asleep. When a pediatric chiropractor treats your child, tension is alleviated from the body, allowing your child to achieve sound, restful sleep.

Treatment for Other Medical Issues

Chiropractic care can assist with more than just stress and anxiety. If your child suffers from other medical problems, such as colic, ear infections, asthma, and seizures, the team at Integrated Health Solutions can assist. We can provide relief through readjustments and other treatment options by restoring the nerve supply and function.

Support a Healthy Immune System

Don’t wait until your child falls ill to bring them to see our chiropractic team. Those who are happy and healthy can also benefit from chiropractic treatment. Our team can help strengthen and maintain your child’s immune system’s health, helping them stay healthy. Spinal readjustments work to stimulate and improve the nervous system, which, in turn, communicates with the immune system and stimulates its functioning.

Encourage Brain Development

Chiropractic care focuses on the nervous system, meaning the brain is directly impacted through treatment. The nervous system is arguably the most important part of the body, as it is responsible for sending messages from the brain to the rest of the body. Keeping this pathway clear, stimulated, and functioning properly supports the healthy development of the brain.
