Chiropractic Care for Kids

Occasional discomfort in our bodies is common at every age.

Our bodies are subjected to a lot of stresses in daily life. This is especially true for children as they physically grow. As newborns grow into infants, then toddlers and on up through their teenage years, a child’s musculoskeletal and nervous systems undergo many constant changes.

These changes can be accelerated by alterations in posture from crawling, walking, running, playing and also sports and hobbies that kids enjoy.

Fortunately, pediatric chiropractic care can help at any stage of your child’s development.

It is also helpful in addressing many other conditions children can develop, according to Co-Owner and Pregnancy and Pediatric Chiropractor at Sycamore Integrated Health, Dr. Morgan Sheedy.

“Being a pediatric and pregnancy chiropractor is the most rewarding profession to be in,” Dr. Sheedy said. “On a daily basis I get to see and hear about all the positive changes that occur in these children’s lives. Kids come into our office for many reasons. The more common concerns are torticollis, colic, digestive concerns, and sleep disturbances.”

Routine check-ups and non-invasive adjustments will help keep the spine in proper alignment to bring immediate relief and help kids’ bodies function better. This will help them to enjoy not only their play and sports, but it will address any back or joint pain brought on by prolonged sitting during school, carrying heavy bookbags, and other physical activities.

But it is important to get their first check-up early to help ensure the success of their body’s functionality.

“By having an infant or child evaluated, we are able to encourage proper brain/nerve development and communication throughout the body. Once the communication is restored from the brain to the body, we see these concerns start to decrease, and kids are functioning so much better!” Dr. Sheedy said.

These are just a few ways in which early evaluations and chiropractic care for children can be helpful.
