Pediatric Chiropractic


Reasons Your Child Should See Our Pediatric Chiropractor

Chiropractic care is a form of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of problems with the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine. Chiropractors use a variety of techniques, including spinal manipulation, to treat patients.

There are many benefits to chiropractic care, including improved mobility and reduced inflammation. Chiropractic care can also help improve sleep quality and immune function.

Children, just like adults, need to go see a chiropractor. Their muscles and spine are still developing, which leaves them vulnerable to injuries that could be prevented with routine checkups. Athena Chiropractic in Wilmington, DE, offers modern chiropractic care that is effective and safe for your child's growing body.

Colic

If you have an infant in America, chances are about 20% that they will experience colic at some point. Colic is characterized by fussiness or crying for more than four hours each day, on more than three days each week, without any apparent reasons or pattern. However, our gentle pediatric chiropractic techniques can help reduce pain and calm their nervous system by eliminating spinal tension.

Behavioral Problems

The central nervous system is responsible for a child’s behavioral disorders. The spinal nerves, spinal cord, and brain are all protected by the bones of the spine and skull. Our pediatrics team can help reduce irritation that may be contributing to these issues.

Arching of the Back

When a mother and baby are close together, the baby usually has a flexed body position. If the baby's spine is rigid or they arch their back only when they're fussy, this may be an indication that something is causing tension or pain in their spinal column. Our pediatric chiropractors can often help relieve these issues with adjustments.

Constipation

The conscious mind of your child is responsible for their natural survival instincts and this function is carried out through the nervous system. If your child has any interference in their spine, then our chiropractic adjustments can help to ease this. Furthermore, we provide tummy techniques to encourage good digestion and infant probiotics to ensure healthy gut flora.

We can also help your child with:

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

The pediatric chiropractic sector of our business focuses on optimizing the nervous system. This is important because the nervous system controls nerve and brain development, immune function, and behavior.
