Pediatric Chiropractic


4 Reasons Your Child Should See Our Pediatric Chiropractor

Just like adults, children also need to visit a chiropractor. Their muscles, spine, and nervous systems are still developing. Leaving them prone to injuries unless monitored. At Athena Chiropractic, Wilmington, DE, we offer effective, safe, and modern chiropractic care to provide benefits to your child.

.

Colic

Colic affects about 20% of infants in America. Usually, colic appears as a constantly irritable newborn who fusses or cries more than four hours a day, more than three days a week, with no apparent reasons or pattern. However, our gentle pediatric chiropractic techniques can help reduce pain, calm their nervous system, and eliminate spinal tension.

Behavioral Problems

The central nervous system plays a significant role in a child’s behavioral disorders. The spinal nerves, spinal cord, and brain are protected by the moveable bones of the spine and skull. Our pediatrics can help reduce the irritation that might be a contributing factor.  

Arching of the Back

Comfortable babies typically assume a flexed body position to stay closer to their moms. However, an indicator that your baby is experiencing spinal tension or pain is when they present a rigid or stiff spine and assume a back-arching position only when fussing. Thankfully, our pediatrics can help solve this by chiropractic adjustment.

Constipation

Your child’s conscious mind is related to their innate survival abilities coordinated through the nervous system. Our chiropractic adjustments can help alleviate any interference your child might be experiencing in the spine. In addition, tummy techniques will promote good peristalsis and infant probiotics for healthy gut flora.

Also, bring your child to us for:

  • Relief from headache
  • Improved sleep quality
  • Stronger immune system
  • Better athletic performance
  • Decreased back and neck pain
  • More mobility in the spine or joints

Our pediatric chiropractic focuses on increasing the nervous system’s functioning. This network in the human body is essential to nerve and brain development, behaviors, and the immune system.
