Chiropractic Care for Children in Centreville, VA
Our chiropractors offer gentle chiropractic treatment in order to address a variety of common childhood issues, including:
- Sleep difficulties
- Behavioral problems
- Immune system function issues
- Chronic ear infections
- Digestive issues
The birth process itself is a significant source of physical trauma that has lasting effects on children’s health years down the line. Babies have up to 90 pounds of pressure on their heads and necks during a typical vaginal birth, with even more pressure involved in a Caesarian section.
Trauma from birth can lead to spinal adhesions, cranial issues, and injuries to the head, neck, and spinal canal. If these problems are not treated, they may cause a number of troubling physical symptoms, some of which may lead to newborns and infants being prescribed medication.
Chiropractic treatments seek to resolve the underlying cause of these symptoms in order to avoid the need for prescription medication. Gentle spinal manipulation is safe for children when provided by a skilled practitioner.
When you bring your child to Palmercare, we first assess your child’s spine and perform light adjustments with only our hands or a small tool. These manipulations restore normal spinal movement and improve nervous system function. The body begins to heal itself once the nervous system is unblocked.
