Pediatric Chiropractic in Edmonton

adjusting child patientMore and more parents these days are seeking natural health care for their kids, and pediatric chiropractic care is an effective and non-invasive form of such care. Some reasons moms and dads choose chiropractic: it can address an array of common childhood issues and promote a child’s overall well-being and optimal growth.

Promoting a Healthy Nervous System

Pediatric chiropractic care is essentially about keeping your child’s nervous system free from interference. “When children are born, I always say they’re kind of like a supercomputer with no programs on them. So the brain develops through input through the nervous system. To get good input into the nervous system, we need ideal movement,” said Dr. Don.

By checking the spine for any misalignments or subluxations and ensuring optimal movement, chiropractic care allows your child’s brain to adapt and learn more effectively. In turn, this fosters maximum potential development.

Nurturing the Growing Spine

As newborns grow, they gradually transition through different milestones—from tummy time to crawling, sitting, standing, and walking. Each developmental phase introduces new stressors to your child’s spine and nervous system. Regular chiropractic checks and adjustments can ensure the spine is in an adaptive state and capable of responding to these changes without causing any long-term issues.

Addressing Common Childhood Concerns

If your little one struggles with sleep disturbances and eating difficulties; those are indicators that the nervous system may be distressed. These symptoms can be alleviated with chiropractic adjustments to enhance the nervous system’s functionality, offering your child a better quality of life.

When Should Your Child Get Adjusted?

Kids can benefit from chiropractic care as early as a few hours after birth, continuing throughout all developmental stages. If you notice any changes in your child’s behavior, demeanor, or mobility, especially during developmental milestones, they could benefit from chiropractic care.

Techniques Tailored for Tiny Ones

Our chiropractors use specially designed techniques for infants and children. These methods, often including light hand holds or an Activator, are gentle yet very specific. They aim to improve mobility and alignment while releasing tension from their spine and nervous system. Rest assured that the force applied is significantly lighter than what’s used for adults, making it comfortable and secure for children.

At South Side Chiropractic, we are passionate about helping kids of all ages flourish through pediatric chiropractic care, an invaluable tool that can contribute to your child’s optimal growth and development.
