Pediatric Conditions We Commonly See in Our Office

As pediatric chiropractors, we focus on correcting spinal misalignments. A chiropractic adjustment helps the body function at its best, and we see it heal from many types of things. We do not treat the symptoms associated with conditions but focus on keeping the body in a perfectly aligned state. When a body performs as it should, it can heal itself from any dysfunction. 

Parents choose to schedule an appointment with our pediatric chiropractors for many reasons.

Some of the most common conditions that respond well to chiropractic care include:

At our chiropractic clinic, we don’t specifically treat any of these symptoms. Instead, we address the cause of where many of these symptoms emerge. 

These symptoms usually correlate with upper neck issues. A misalignment of the upper neck alters the nerve transmission to other parts of the body — the eyes, ears, nose, throat, and digestive tract. Ensuring proper alignment is very important to restore proper function to these areas. Pediatric chiropractic care helps fix all the subluxations in a child’s neck and spine. As a result, the body restores its ability to heal itself, while back and neck pain go away.

Why do babies need to see a chiropractor?

The process of birth itself is often the cause of significant spinal trauma. Even when the delivery is quick and clean, it doesn’t guarantee the absence of injuries. Descending through the birth is enough to cause misalignments in a baby’s neck and spine. Vacuum, suction, forceps, and c-section deliveries cause an even greater tension and stress on the spine. As a result, infants may experience an array of symptoms. 

Spinal traumas may occur later on as well. As children grow up, they take falls, wear heavy backpacks, or sit in unhealthy posture for an extended period. Stressors such as these along with many others may cause spinal misalignments.

Spinal misalignments may or may not result in pain right away. It’s just like a dental cavity that may take time before we feel that it is there. For this reason, it is beneficial to have a baby checked by a pediatric chiropractor as early as a few days old. Any misalignments are pretty easy to fix at this age through gentle adjustments.

Is chiropractic safe for kids?

Yes! If it was not safe, it would not be around. Pediatric trained chiropractors use gentle techniques that use a light touch. Or, they use a spring-loaded instrument as gentle as a light touch to correct. 

The joints, tendons, and ligaments in children are still developing. So, pediatric chiropractors do not treat them with the same force as they would an adult. There is no popping or cracking noise!

At what age can a child see a pediatric chiropractor?

In our office in Austin, we see patients as young as a few days old! We understand the importance of maintaining a healthy functioning nervous system (brain and spinal cord) for life. A healthy spine and nervous system are crucial for having fewer problems through the teen and adult years. Just as maintaining teeth at a young age results in healthier teeth for life, maintaining spinal health is just as important.

How do chiropractors adjust babies?

With babies, there is no popping, cracking, or twisting! It almost looks like nothing is even happening. Light sustained pressure on a joint with abnormal motion helps free up the joint. Since infants do not have the same muscular support that adults do, it takes almost nothing to guide a joint back into the correct position. 

Timely checking for vertebral subluxation prevents young patients from spinal issues in adulthood.
