How can chiropractic care help my child?
Chiropractic care isn’t just for adults with chronic pain. This type of care helps children who are experiencing several kinds of problems, including:
- Trouble sleeping
- Digestive issues
- Frequent colds and minor illnesses
These health issues are often linked to problems with the nervous system, such as nerve irritation or misalignments in one or more joints. Making adjustments to your child’s joints helps relieve irritation and ensures that nutrients are fully absorbed, which helps boost their immune function.
Is pediatric chiropractic care safe?
Pediatric chiropractic care is safe as long as it’s done by a chiropractor with the right training and experience. Dr. Colopy has received credentials from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), which demonstrates his knowledge and skills in this type of care. He performs spinal adjustments and adjustments to other joints gently and safely.
Are chiropractic adjustments uncomfortable for children?
Dr. Colopy ensures that pediatric chiropractic adjustments don’t cause children any discomfort or pain. Your child should feel relaxed and at ease during these adjustments: Dr. Colopy uses gentle techniques to move parts of the affected joint back into their proper place. If you have any concerns about pediatric chiropractic care, you can discuss them with him before your child has adjustments done.
How does chiropractic care differ from medical care for children?
Medical care often focuses on finding treatments to relieve symptoms rather than addressing the underlying cause of a problem, such as a digestive issue or frequent colds. By contrast, chiropractic care addresses imbalances in the nervous system that can cause health and behavioral issues to occur.
When you bring your child in for chiropractic care, Dr. Colopy aims to correct the imbalance instead of only treating symptoms. This helps put your child on a path to optimal physical health.
How often will my child need pediatric chiropractic care?
Children benefit from pediatric chiropractic care on a regular basis. In fact, you can think of it as part of their preventive care for keeping them healthy throughout childhood. Regular care helps ensure that your child’s nervous system is properly aligned, which can prevent further health issues from developing. Dr. Colopy can let you know how often you should consider bringing your child in for pediatric chiropractic care.
