Chiropractic Benefits For Children

First thoughts of chiropractic care usually evoke images of adults having their neck or back treated. This is indeed most common, but certainly not the rule. Some chiropractors, in fact, don’t work with adults at all. There are those who become pediatric chiropractors.

Pediatric dentists, doctors, and surgeons practice because children need specialized care, and different treatments need to be applied than that given adults. These different needs inspire many practitioners to become pediatric chiropractors. Procedures are variable, adjusting to a patient’s weight and height, as part of appropriate application. Expert procedures appropriate for children are the pediatric chiropractor’s specialty.

When Children Need Chiropractic Care

The reasons a child may need pediatric chiropractic care can be many. There are children born with spinal problems. Trauma experienced through the process of birthing can cause cranial misalignment. Some parents have their newborn and/or toddlers observed by the pediatric DC to insure spinal alignment during early childhood. And, frequently, care from a pediatric DC can help children sleep better, and reduce chronic infection tendencies.

Just as people often come for treatment after trauma, such as a fall, or car accident, children too, have traumas from bike and skateboard accidents. In some cases, these traumas may cause spinal misalignment.

Also, MD’s may refer a child to chiropractic care when other modes of treating issues such as allergies, asthma, colic, and ear infections fail.

How Pediatric Chiropractors Help

Parents may wonder how chiropractic can help their children, particularly when the condition of concern seems to have nothing to do with the spine. Parents are then reminded that the spine is a column protecting the spinal cord- and the spinal cord is the governor of the whole nervous system.

Regulation of respiratory, circulatory, hormonal, digestive, eliminative and immune systems comes from the brain/body messaging through the spinal cord.
Spinal misalignment can mean a spinal cord hindered in its effective healthy directives to the symptomatic areas of concern.

This is why parents end up at the pediatric chiropractor for their children’s allergies, asthma, and other seeming non-spinal concerns.

I was involved in my first car accident, and my back was hurting so bad I couldn’t even get out of bed. Luckily, I found Sycamore Chiropractic on Yelp. Dr. Dizon is pretty awesome! He really cares about all his patients and will give you great advice about what to do and what not to do when you’re at home to keep the pain away or at a minimum. I no longer have any back pain, it’s like the accident never happened! - Katrina M.

 I’ve been going to Dr. Dizon for years, and I have to say he’s amazing. I truly feel better after an adjustment. He’s great at what he does and his services, in my opinion, are affordable. As someone who has suffered from back pain, it’s good to know he’s there for me to help me manage it. I would absolutely recommend Sycamore Chiropractic! - Andreea M.

 I was looking for a new chiropractor closer to home. After visiting another office in the area after a car accident, I found that chiropractor to be rough, quick and rushed.... I would come home sore a lot. Dr. Dizon was very helpful with my acute neck pain. His consultation was thorough, detailed and the prep prior to the adjustment was so relaxing I nearly fell asleep! I felt immediate relief from the neck adjustment. The adjustment was gentle but effective. Dr. Dizon is welcoming and personable. Would definitely recommend to friends and have found a new chiropractor for sure. - Bre B.
