Kids are resilient! Remember when you were a kid? You could fall down, scrape your knee and it wouldn’t bother you a bit. How many times did you fall learning how to walk, ride a bike, or just strain yourself during physical education class?
Kids are small and flexible so doesn’t it make sense that a bone may be moved out of place? Sometimes the body can take care of itself and put the bones back to where they belong, but sometimes the body may need some help. One warning sign is a child with long term pain. The body is saying there is something wrong
If your child has chronic pain, it usually means there is a problem and is not normal. Abdominal pain could mean many different things and it would be a good idea to see a medical doctor to make sure it is not appendicitis or a serious condition. If your child is experiencing musculo-skeletal problems then there may be a fracture, tear or bio-mechanical problem that needs to be addressed.
After ruling out a fracture or serious problem, chiropractors can analyze and examine your child to make sure that they are functioning properly and are not pulling or straining ligaments, tendons and bones in their bodies. We are experts in body mechanics and can promote healthy posture, alignment and function. Starting early in life being aware of your body will lead to a long, vibrant and happy life with limited stress and injury.
Chiropractic is safe for everyone, even kids. We offer gentle ways of allowing the bones to go back and stay where they belong. We can help keep your child happy, healthy and loving life!
