Pediatric Chiropractic Care for Children and Teens
As infants grow into toddlers and young children, their spines undergo many different forms of stress and trauma. This is strongly the case as they learn to walk, crawl, play, become independent and involve themselves in sports. A number of these may result in subluxations that Dr. Patti can easily detect and resolve at her Bluffton chiropractic office.
Why Pediatric Chiropractic Check-Ups are Important
Kids and teens should regularly receive chiropractic check-ups as healthy spines and proper alignment are important for overall health. Other conditions chiropractic care can help with as children continue to grow are:
- Poor posture resulting from hours in front of a TV/computer screen or carrying heavy backpacks
- Poor concentration or poor coordination
- Joint pain or pain in the back, limbs, hips, feet or shoulders
- Weakness or fatigue
Pediatric Chiropractic Care Treatment from Dr. Patti Zientek
The first thing Dr. Patti will do is conduct a thorough history of your child’s health as well as address any complaints he or she may currently have. She will then complete a full physical exam of their spine. Once Dr. Patti starts to perform spinal adjustments on your child, she will use very gentle fingertip pressure to correct any spinal misalignments he finds. The pressure she uses will gently restore mobility to the spinal joints. Compared to adults, a child’s spine typically responds faster to chiropractic care.
