Newborns and children of all ages can receive pediatric chiropractic care at ANEW Medical and Rehabilitation. Wellness care involves safe, gentle, age-appropriate chiropractic adjustments tailored to suit their young, developing spine. Parents who bring their children to our Joliet chiropractor have seen the positive effects spinal manipulation has on their children's health and well-being. In fact, findings from a recent study concluded that pediatric chiropractic helps improve certain conditions related to musculoskeletal imbalances and enhances overall wellness.
What is Pediatric Chiropractic Care?
Pediatric chiropractic for children is a natural treatment method used to alleviate aches, pains, and other symptoms without exposing them to the harsh side effects of drugs. The primary aim is to optimize joint and spine health from an early stage. Routine spine care may also prevent injury and musculoskeletal imbalances that give rise to degenerative disc conditions such as spinal stenosis, scoliosis, and herniated discs later in life.
Conditions that Respond Well to Chiropractic Care
Spending a lengthy time in the fetal position and squeezing through the narrow birth canal often puts pressure on the spine. This can cause misalignment of the joints and tissue as well as nerve interference. Consequently, your baby or child may develop pain, earaches, chronic infections, asthma, digestive problems, or any of the following other conditions our chiropractor can help treat:
- Infantile colic
- Difficulty latching
- Trouble sleeping
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Vertebral misalignment can interfere with posture and balance in toddlers, adolescents, and teens. This may increase the risk of falls and spine injury during physical activities.
Pediatric Chiropractic Care by Our Chiropractor in Joliet
Dr. Rubis will examine your child and analyze his or her spine to pinpoint the root cause of the complaint. The comprehensive evaluation is performed in a loving, caring, and supportive environment. We may recommend the following treatment modalities based on the findings:
- Pediatric Spinal Adjustments: This non-invasive therapy is performed using the hands or the Activator method to apply gentle, precise pressure to the misaligned segments of the spine. Manipulating the joints and soft tissue back into their proper position takes the pressure off the nerve, discs, and connective tissue. Spinal manipulation is a natural and effective pain reliever, improves physical balance, boosts immunity, and restores nervous system function.
- Massage Therapy: Gentle therapeutic massages help to relax tense muscles, reduce pain, improve headaches, and help children sleep better.
