Many people often have three concerns when they hear about Chiropractic care for children and infants. The first of which is, “Do chiropractors even see kids?” This is a common assumption, but one that is easily addressed. Pediatric chiropractic is the fastest growing segment of chiropractic care, and nationwide, about 20% of all chiropractic visits are pediatric. Why such growth?
Chiropractic professionals and parents alike are seeing the vast implications of chiropractic care for a variety of childhood and developmental conditions.
Recent research indicates that chiropractic can help children with ADHD, allergies, anxiety, asthma, autism, bed-wetting, colic, constipation, eating and feeding difficulties, ear infections, learning and behavioral issues, sensory processing disorders, sleep, and much more!
The second question we hear is, “Is it safe for kids?” Simply put, ABSOLUTELY! Chiropractic care for children, and patients of all ages, has repeatedly been shown to be one of the safest forms of health care available. This becomes even more apparent when compared with the “alternative” to chiropractic wellness care: drugs. Most often, medications are not tested on children (clinical trials’ ethical considerations often don’t allow it) and therefore pediatric dosages are frequently nothing more than ‘best guesses’ and can lead to dangerous and damaging side effects.
