Red Deer Chiropractic Care for Infants and Children

Group of kids smilingYou naturally want to help get your child off to the healthiest start in life. Did you know that chiropractic care is one of the best ways to do just that? From the birth process to the many bumps, bruises and falls that kids experience growing up, children’s spines can become subluxated or misaligned. That means there’s interference in the nervous system that can produce problems if not addressed.

The Role of the Central Nervous System

The central nervous system consists of the brain and the spinal cord. From the spinal cord are nerves that go to every organ, gland, tissue, muscle and cell of the body. The nervous system is kind of like the fuse box in your house. If there’s a “blown fuse,” a child’s health will be impacted.

A minor issue in a child’s spine that is not addressed can develop into a much bigger problem in adulthood. It’s our belief that it’s so much easier to grow a healthy child than repair a damaged adult. That’s the real value of paediatric chiropractic care.

Helping Kids Stay Active

When kids are able to stay active, they can enjoy better health. Chiropractic care promotes optimal function so children can move without restriction and get the vital exercise their bodies need to be well.

FAQ

Do paediatric chiropractors adjust children differently than adults?
Yes; we only use gentle adjusting techniques on children. For example, a chiropractor would only apply the same amount of pressure to adjust a baby as is used to determine if a tomato is ripe.

Will chiropractic be painful for my child?
No; not at all. Chiropractors only employ gentle adjusting techniques that are always age-appropriate. With chiropractic, we don’t need to use considerable force to achieve excellent results.

Can chiropractic help my child stay healthy?
As clear brain-body communication helps to promote healthy immune function, regular chiropractic adjustments may help strengthen your child’s immune system.

How is chiropractic care different from medical care?
Chiropractic focuses on the nervous system and seeks to get to the root of an issue versus covering up symptoms. In contrast, conventional medical care relies on drugs and surgery while chiropractic is natural and noninvasive.

Does my child need paediatric chiropractic care indefinitely?
It’s your choice, of course, as to how long you want your child to receive chiropractic care. Think about this though: your child likely sees the dentist twice a year for checkups to maintain optimal oral health. You also probably take your child to the paediatrician for regular wellness appointments. Likewise, chiropractic care should be considered a vital part of your child’s overall health and wellness regimen.

  • After my twin babies were born, I noticed that one was having trouble latching on and nursing in the traditional cradle hold. She seemed to get very frustrated and cried a lot. Dr. Hoffman examined her at seven days of age and found that her neck would only turn so much on the one side. He adjusted her and since then she has been nursing in all position without any trouble at all. My deepest thanks to Dr. Hoffman for his care for me and my babies.
