Chiropractic Care for Kids
Did You Know There Is Chiropractic Therapy For Kids?
Chiropractic therapy focuses on musculoskeletal performance. In particular, it specializes in how spinal misalignment can wind up interfering with the bodies nervous system, impacting its ability to heal itself. Dr. Jason Wilson of Wilson Health Services is your local Guelph Chiropractor and can help alleviate this pain.
With 18+ years of chiropractic experience he is skilled in a variety of chiropractic adjusting techniques. Dr. Wilson is someone who uses both his hands and other instruments to manipulate spinal problem areas back into working order using non-invasive techniques.
Do you know that chiropractic therapy actually has quite a few advantages for both babies and kids?
It's common knowledge that chiropractors can help you with neck, back, and head pain. Kids can fall, slip, and disrupt their spinal alignment just as much as adults can. However, adults sometimes misinterpret the discomfort of a child, often attributing it to growing pains or sleeping in strange positions. Pain isn't a normal condition, and a developing human body relies on a nervous system that is fully functioning.
Aside from common chiropractic adjustments for neck and back pain, Dr. Jason is fully capable of assisting your body in overcoming numerous physical ailments, such as posture, trouble sleeping, bed wetting, and ear infections. Notice how many of these are common childhood complaints?
There are no age restrictions placed on chiropractic care. Babies are able to benefit from the right adjustments for digestive and gas problems, mobility issues, and poor sleeping habit, which all relate to spinal alignment and posture, and some of these issues trace back to traumatic delivery.
Pre- and post-natal chiropractic care for mothers is also available. When you go through pregnancy, then your body goes through rapid changes; you gain a lot of weight, particularly in the front, and that changes how you walk, stand, balance, sleep, and even bend over to pick things up. This could strain your back and cause you pain. Also, baby weight puts pressure onto your sacroiliac joint, which causes even more discomfort and pain.
Chiropractic care can be something that makes gentle adjustments in order to alleviate some of the pressure which helps you keep a healthy posture and core fitness so that you stay comfortable and able to tackle your physical challenges. Those include picking up your baby, as well as holding them, feeding them, and carrying them.
Post-natal chiropractic adjustments can help get your body strength back as you adapt and heal during post-pregnancy to the changes of your body and motherhood's physical demands.
We use a very gentle touch when performing chiropractic adjustments for kids and infants, far more gentle than any force applied to adults. Book an appointment with Dr. Jason Wilson at Wilson Health Services to find out how chiropractic caremay benefit you and your family by calling 519-626-8008.
