Chiropractic Care for Children
Catalina Medical Center offers chiropractic care to patients of all ages, and there is no age recommendation for beginning chiropractic care. Even infants who have suffered trauma to the spine during a natural or C-section birth can receive a minor adjustment. Chronic ear infections in a small child can feel like a vicious cycle, but this irritation is often related to misalignment in the neck. Restoring that balance can improve middle ear drainage and prevent further infections. Allergies and asthma also start to surface in young children, and the two are closely linked to the respiratory system. A misalignment in the spine can confuse a body’s immune system and cause a reaction with respiratory symptoms, so children should be seen by a chiropractor before being treated for allergies.
Regular adjustments are healthy for the growth and development of a child’s nervous system and strengthen immunity. Chiropractors use the body’s ability to heal itself in their approach to treatment and kids are especially resilient, making them great candidates for chiropractic care. Keeping a body’s systems functioning at their best helps to heal injury and fight infection in your child without drugs or procedures.
