Pediatric Chiropractic FAQs

Like adults, children benefit from chiropractic treatments. Pediatric chiropractic care can be used to treat sports injuries or promote good health and fitness in your kids. At Community Chiropractic Center in Poway, we’ve compiled the following FAQs to explain more about pediatric chiropractic care and how it can benefit your children.

What is pediatric chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care offers a natural, drug-free way to treat musculoskeletal pain and improve overall body function. Our Poway chiropractor uses holistic techniques and therapies to treat pain caused by muscle, joint, ligament, or tendon injuries and help your body heal. In children, chiropractic care can reduce pain from sports injuries, improve coordination, boost immune health, and promote natural healing of injuries for a quicker recovery.

How does chiropractic care for children differ from chiropractic care for adults?

As a child’s musculoskeletal system is still developing, our pediatric chiropractor will adjust his methods of evaluation and treatment to suit your child’s growing needs. We may treat a problem less aggressively in a child to give his body an opportunity to respond and complete the healing process. Our chiropractor will customize your child’s pediatric treatment to suit his healthcare needs.

Is chiropractic care safe for children?

By working with an experienced, licensed pediatric chiropractor, you can have full confidence that your child’s treatments will be safe and effective. At Community Chiropractic Center, we encourage parents to be as involved as possible in making decisions concerning their children’s chiropractic treatments.

What kinds of conditions can pediatric chiropractic care treat?

Pediatric chiropractic care can be used to treat a number of ailments in children to include headaches, muscle aches, chronic ear infections, growing pains, sports injuries, asthma, and more.

What techniques does your pediatric chiropractor use in treating children?

Depending on your child’s healthcare needs, your Poway pediatric chiropractor may make use of:

  • Chiropractic adjustments/manipulation to keep your child’s skeletal system in balance, so he can benefit from optimal body function
  • Massage therapy to ease muscle tension, reduce stress, and improve flexibility, range of motion, and mobility
  • Therapeutic exercises to strengthen muscles and improve coordination to reduce the risk of sports injuries
  • Nutritional counseling to help children develop healthy eating habits that promote strength, energy, and fitness to combat childhood obesity

What are the benefits of chiropractic care for children?

Chiropractic treatments are all-natural, non-invasive, and drug-free, eliminating any risk of your child or teen becoming addicted to medications. Natural treatments won’t have any ill after effects on your children.
