Chiropractic therapy for children…
Chiropractic therapy is usually considered a treatment for adults or athletes; however we have found successful results when working with children as well. The nervous system is essentially the master controller of our body. If this the channels become fuzzy or damaged then the body will experience all sorts of communication problems. For children, these communication problems can lead to an endless list of more sever health problems. To target the central nervous system through light touch chiropractic therapy we can help ensure your children’s nervous system (their body’s control center) is in good health. Chiropractic treatment for kids can be used to treat sports injuries, genetic disorders, traumas and for overall health.
Physical therapy for children…
We can also treat children with our physical therapy treatments including; acupuncture and therapeutic massages. When applying acupuncture treatment to children the same general principles apply for children as they do for adults, however, children usually only need a quick in and out insertion of the needle rather than pins being left in for 10-15 minutes. The needles are fine and quick and generally your child will hardly notice them at all. Qi (energy) is easy to restore in children because it is so new in their bodies, which means that in most cases they do not require many needles to restore balance.
Therapeutic massages can be great for children suffering from conditions such as; diabetes, asthma, and other skin or arthritic problems. The relaxing atmosphere and gentle touch have proven successful with children that suffer from hyperactivity disorders or other psychiatric problems. Massage as a therapy can be beneficial for children at any age to help your little ones grow into a balanced and mature adult. Here at Align 33 Chiropractic we offer therapeutic massages for children to help with sore muscles, joints and to help with relaxation and muscle development.
