Children’s bodies are constantly developing and growing up is hard work. Whether your child suffers from growing pains or has strains caused by their rough and tumble lifestyle, chiropractic treatments can keep them going without pain and allow their body to develop optimally.
Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine. In some cases a person is born with an abnormal curvature and in others it may develop over time. Chiropractic does not cure or reverse scoliosis but helps to prevent further degradation of the spine. This abnormal curvature can cause a multitude of symptoms including uneven hips and/or shoulders, back pain, numbness/weakness/pain in the legs, trouble walking and standing straight. Chiropractic adjustments and therapies help to alleviate these symptoms while improving function and increasing mobility into the effected joints.
Bedwetting and bladder control are a common issue with children but many parents find that their child, after the appropriate time training and implementing coping strategies, continues to struggle. In many of these cases a misalignment of the lumbar spine, whose nerves control the bladder can be the cause of these issues. The phrenic nerve in the cervical spine also plays a role in telling the body when to relax smooth muscles and interference with this nerve can be a contributing factor to bedwetting during deep sleep. A chiropractor can identify where misalignments are occurring and gently correct them.
If your child suffers from other conditions or causes of pain that you do not see listed fear not!
