Common Injuries in Children
Spinal alignment problems in children can begin with the birthing process, especially if it is a breech (feet first) birth. A forceps delivery can also result in subtle alignment issues that become worse with age. Of course, active children are likely to sustain falls and backpacks are notorious for causing shoulder and upper back problems. Genetic issues like flat feet or uneven leg length can cause pain and postural distortions. Children who participate in sports activities can develop repetitive motion injuries, such as tennis elbow. Pediatric chiropractic care is often very successful in treating these issues.
What to Expect during Your Child’s Appointment
During your child’s appointment, our Plano chiropractor will ask about your child’s health history and if your child is experiencing any type of pain. After the health evaluation, our chiropractor will be able to device a pediatric chiropractic plan to fit your child’s needs. We understand no child is the same because each child have different histories and conditions.
The Benefits of Chiropractic Care
The alignment of your spine affects your overall health. The nerves that control movement, function, and sensation run off the spinal cord. If compressed or irritated, your child may develop pain, sensation changes, weakness, or other musculoskeletal issues. Our chiropractic adjustments can correct the misalignment and restore function, allowing your child to be healthy. Our Plano chiropractor can also offer advice on important strategies, like improved nutrition to help promote optimum growth and good musculoskeletal development.
