How Pediatric Chiropractic Care Can Help
When you consider the importance of a healthy spinal alignment for normal nerve function and musculoskeletal balance, the potential value of chiropractic evaluation and adjustment for children becomes clear. We are subjected to enormous spinal stresses quite literally from the moment we're born, which is why many newborn babies display musculoskeletal injuries and spinal alignment problems. Tiny, gentle adjustments performed by a skilled, experienced pediatric specialist can correct these issues from day one so that they cannot interfere with the baby's growth and development.
As babies progress into toddler-hood and beyond, they provide their own share of self-inflicted bumps and jolts to their spines, especially since learning to walk or run involves plenty of falling and stumbling. This is a normal part of growing up -- but small, painless misalignment problems can begin to accumulate along the way.
These issues can eventually inhibit nerve function, affecting the body's ability to control its immune response, organ systems, hormone levels and neurological signaling. These results can influence everything from childhood asthma and allergy attacks to learning disorders such as ADHD. Chiropractic treatment in Naperville can help keep the spinal column straight and true, normalizing nerve function so that the body and brain can talk to each other efficiently, helping to reduce the frequency and severity of many childhood ailments.
Enhanced Health and Wellness for Naperville, Plainfield, Bolingbrook and Aurora Kids
Musculoskeletal problems can continue to mount up as your children go through their school years. Contact sports pose a special threat to spinal health, even with pads and protective equipment. We recommend that the little athletes in your family undergo a spinal screening before every sports season just to make sure there are no small issues that could be jolted into larger ones on the playing field. Daily backpack use can also create spinal, muscular and nerve issues; we can advise you on how to minimize this problem for your child as well.
Last but not least, scoliosis commonly appears during this period of life -- another strong reason to have your child's spine evaluated periodically. The sooner we can diagnose a case a scoliosis, the earlier the condition can be assessed and, if need be, treated. Contact Symmetry Chiropractic & Acupuncture to schedule chiropractic evaluations for your Naperville, Plainfield, Bolingbrook or Aurora kids.
Chiropractic adjustments are one of the most basic and common techniques used here in our office. Specifically, chiropractic adjustments utilize skilled and careful movements to gently manipulate the spine, with the ultimate goal being to improve the overall alignment of the spine. Better spinal alignment, in turn, can provide relief for many symptoms like back pain, neck pain, and stiffness.
One of the main appeals of chiropractic care is that it has the potential to bring numerous benefits at very little risk. First of all, chiropractic treatments are generally non- or minimally-invasive, so the risk of complications is very low from the start. Furthermore, chiropractic care is an excellent alternative to more invasive treatments or even medication use, which may mask symptoms but fail to treat the true cause. Chiropractic care uses natural methods and techniques to help not only relieve symptoms, but address their root cause as well.
Pediatric chiropractic care is focused on providing non-invasive and drug-free treatment to children suffering from spine-related health conditions. For instance, pediatric chiropractic care can be used to treat conditions common in children such as scoliosis and back pain caused by poor posture and carrying heavy back packs at school. Chiropractic treatments, such as regular spinal adjustments, have also been found to be effective in preventing some medical problems in children as they age and develop, such as osteoporosis and arthritis.
Prenatal chiropractic care is offered specifically to pregnant women. Specifically, prenatal care can help to make women more comfortable throughout pregnancy in addition to making labor easier. Chiropractic techniques such as therapeutic massage and regular spinal adjustments can help to relax muscles, relieve back and neck pain associated with pregnancy, and improve alignment of the spine for a smoother birth.
Many patients don't realize that chiropractic care is generally included in health insurance coverage. However, we always recommend that patients check with their health insurance providers to find out for sure which treatments are covered and which are not. If you are on Medicare or other medical plan, chiropractic care will most likely be covered as well. Still, you may need to pay a co-pay for each visit or have your plan deductible met before benefits will kick in and your office treatments will be covered.
Unfortunately, there's no universal answer to this question because each patient and each situation is unique. This is why we always recommend coming in for an exam and consultation with our chiropractor so we can get a better idea of what's causing your symptoms. From there, we can determine the best options for treatment and come up with a Naperville chiropractic care plan that factors in your unique needs and lifestyle.
Some patients will find the relief they're looking for after just one treatment with us, whereas we may recommend ongoing treatments (such as regular spinal adjustments) to relieve pain and keep symptoms from coming back for others.
