What Are Some Benefits for Kids?

While many people associate chiropractic care with the relief of back and neck pain, it does so much more-especially for children. We see the great benefits that kids get from getting adjusted. Here are some of the most common issues for which parents bring their children in for care:

  • Bedwetting
  • Colic
  • Constipation
  • Digestion
  • Ear infections
  • Latching difficulties
  • Sinus infections
  • Sleep issues

How Dr. Jamaal’s Son Was Helped

“One day I noticed that my older son was having balance issues and it didn’t look like his SI joints were moving equally when he was trying to walk. I performed a small adjustment and within two days, he was completely walking,” said Dr. Jamaal.

He thought perhaps it was just a coincidence, but the same thing was happening with Dr. Jamaal’s niece. He also did a slight adjustment on her and within 10 minutes she walked across the entire living room. Dr. Jamaal knew that it wasn’t a coincidence and that chiropractic does indeed make a difference!

FAQs

Is it safe and gentle?

Yes, pediatric chiropractic care is highly safe, gentle and painless. “As their joints and bones are forming it takes a lot less force to adjust a child. Sometimes I don’t give high-velocity adjustments but keep sustained pressure on the joint. I may push the joint softly and repetitively for a couple of minutes. That’s all the work that needs to be done and kids bounce back quickly,” said Dr. Jamaal. Some babies even go to sleep right after their adjustment!

Can kids of all ages benefit?

Yes! If your child has a particular issue that needs to be addressed, Dr. Jamaal will provide you with a treatment plan to help your little one get better.

Do children need to come in for care as often as adults?

Kids recover much quicker than adults and don’t need as much care. As Dr. Jamaal encourages all of his patients to get maintenance care, he recommends that children come in about once every 6-8 weeks.

Why should I have my infant adjusted soon after they’re born?

Chiropractic can gently and safely remove any subluxation that may be present in your child’s nervous system allowing your newborn to experience healthy growth and development.
