When you think about the journey that takes a newborn baby through adolescence to adulthood, the sheer number of physical changes and challenges involved can seem staggering. The last you want for your kids is for musculoskeletal or neurological imbalances to affect the success of that journey. Here at ChiroRehab in Dallas, TX, we’re very much a family practice in every sense of the word. That’s why we make a point of offering safe, healthy chiropractic care for children as well as adults.
Your newborn baby may appear perfect to you, but that passage through the birth canal may have pushed vertebrae or extremity joints slightly out of alignment. These subtle issues can turn into major problems as your child grows. Proper nerve function is essential for the body’s systemic operations, balance, coordination, and development. Alignment errors can even interfere with nerve function. On the off chance your child emerges into the world in perfect musculoskeletal condition, minor bumps and jolts sustained throughout infancy can push joint components out of position. Without periodic chiropractic care to diagnose and correct these issues, the resulting nerve dysfunction can make babies more vulnerable to childhood problems such as colic, ear infections, allergies, and asthma.
Children continue to benefit from chiropractic care after they enter school. Spinal alignment errors during these years can contribute to learning challenges, while the stresses of backpack usage and school sports present ongoing threats to the musculoskeletal system. That’s why it’s good to get your children into the routine of having regular chiropractic checkups. Rest assured that chiropractic care is not only helpful for kids, but it’s also extremely safe.
Either Dallas pediatric chiropractor on our team, Dr. Lanier or Dr. Grindstaff, can serve as your children’s primary care provider. We can recommend a schedule of routine chiropractic evaluations, beginning in infancy, to find and fix any issues that might limit your kids’ growth, development, comfort, or function. These regular visits will help your kids to become comfortable with chiropractic care, and to understand how it can help them throughout their lives. Back-to-school exams can prepare your children for another challenging school year. We can also educate your kids on safe, healthy lifestyle habits, from maintaining a straight posture to wearing their school backpacks with the proper care.
When your family relies on ours, you’re giving your children a golden opportunity to enjoy optimal health and wellness. Call our Dallas clinic today at (214) 369-4777 to schedule a pediatric chiropractic evaluation!
