Chiropractic care for children is a specialty at Senara. Spinal health in kids is important in overall neurological functioning, benefiting their health and development. All of Senara’s chiropractors have their own children, and they understand how to relate to kids. They also know every child is different and that they require special, individualized attention. We are passionate about pediatric care at our chiropractic clinic.
Our chiropractors look at each child as a whole person to discover how to relieve the child’s stress and tension from the nervous system. And they’ve had great success in treating children’s ailments as diverse as asthma to ear infections.
Chiropractic for Children: Common Treatments
A common ailment of infants and toddlers, chronic ear infections can often be a alleviated with a series of chiropractic treatments. Your Senara Chiropractor will assess your child’s history of ear infections and perform a simple and non-invasive spinal scan and physical evaluation to determine the root cause of the issue. In many cases, a misalignment in the cervical vertebrae (often a result of the birthing process) will be found, interfering with drainage in the ear canals. This misalignment can be remedied through a course of chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractors are also specially trained to discuss possible dietary causes that may be influencing the frequency of ear infections, also.
ADHD and ADD
As children grow and begin the school-age years, ADHD and ADD traits become more noticeable. Chiropractic care can be pivotal in both the management and treatment of attention deficit disorders. In many cases, misalignment of vertebrae in the upper neck creates an interference in nerve functioning to the brain. This manifests as neurological disorders such as ADHD, ADD, and even depression as they reach the teenage years. By correcting this misalignment through chiropractic adjustments, the interference to the nerve is removed and symptoms will subside or lessen with routine care. Your Senara Chiropractor will design a customized treatment plan for your child to optimize care outcomes.
Digestive health in newborns and children can be a source of frustration for parents and kids alike. Proper elimination can be aided with chiropractic adjustments to the thoracic and lumbar regions of the spine. In some cases, your chiropractor may also recommend dietary changes and children-friendly supplements to further promote healthy elimination.
Asthma & Allergies
Breathing difficulties are traumatic, and often life-threatening, for allergy and asthma sufferers both young and old. Chiropractors are skilled in assessing both nervous system dysfunction and lifestyle factors that may be contributing to symptoms. Routine chiropractic adjustments are beneficial to managing day-to-day symptoms by removing nervous system interference, particularly in the thoracic region where the nerves for lung functioning are located. Additionally, your child’s Senara Chiropractor can offer lifestyle changes that may help to reduce acute flare-ups.
