Chiropractic for Kids in Grand Rapids MI

chiropractor sees children for wellness chiropractic care

Have you considered chiropractic for your kids in Grand Rapids MI? At Platinum Chiropractic we firmly believe in protecting a child’s body by making sure they have the best possible functioning nervous system. It is well known that children bounce back quickly, but that is related to how they feel; physically and structurally that is not always the case. Unfortunately, children do not always verbalize exactly what they feel when they are sore, uncomfortable, or in pain, but just like with adults, if the underlying cause is left alone for too long it will grow into a bigger problem. Chiropractic care for children can be very beneficial.

Starting from the time a child is conceived, their bodies are growing and being put under stress. While the child is growing, they are usually curled up in a ball, and then they are pushed and/or pulled during birth. I just ask that you just take a second and think about how you would feel if today you underwent that kind of experience. All of this stress and trauma affects our spine which can lead to issues with the nervous system. This is a problem because the nervous system is what controls everything our body does such as blinking, breathing, heartbeat, the ability to fight illness, walk, talk, think, speak, etc.

Pediatric Chiropractic Grand Rapids MI

The birthing process can be traumatic for an infant’s head and neck, and many children experience health issues as a result. Conditions such as torticollis, where the infant’s head and neck are unable to turn because of muscle spasms, can be incredibly painful. Other issues like chronic ear infections and asthma are common and worrisome for parents who see their children in pain or discomfort but don’t know how to help.

Chiropractic care is often associated with adults who have back problems, but children can benefit from it too! A functional spinal exam can let you know what’s going on with your child’s spine. For example, ear infections are the most common reason children begin chiropractic care.

Children experience ear infections more often because the eustachian tubes in their ears are smaller than those of adults. When the ears are draining properly, fluid travels from the middle ear down the back of the throat. If there is a misalignment at the top of the neck, the middle ear does not drain properly. This backup of fluid and debris can contribute to an ear infection.

A doctor of chiropractic is trained to analyze, identify and adjust areas of subluxation in the spine. An adjustment is a gentle and effective way to restore proper communication from the brain to the body. If your child has experienced recurrent ear infections, chronic pain, or other problems, a chiropractic check-up could be the solution they need. Call us today to set up an appointment for an initial consultation and evaluation. We have helped many children - and their parents - relax and feel better, and we can help you too.
