We at Thrive Family Chiropractic love seeing babies start healthy, develop healthily, and turn into thriving, successful adults! It is much easier to grow a healthy kid than to fix an injured adult. Infants, toddlers, and children will typically have musculature which is not developed as well as adults. This means their musculature will provide far less support for the spinal column and other joints throughout the body making them more prone to injury during the developmental years of their life.
The first stress and injury to a newborn is usually from the birth process. Spinal injury during birth or during the developmental years of a child’s life can alter their spinal curve as they grow which impacts the spinal cord to fit into an abnormal curve. This puts stress on the spinal cord, nerves, and nervous system which impacts the body’s ability to function and organ problems can arise. Checking children to see how their spine is developing is crucial for long-term health. That is why we prioritize seeing the whole family for optimal health at Thrive Family Chiropractic and offer Rapid City pediatric chiropractic treatment.
Common Signs / Symptoms Experienced By Children
Corrective care from a pediatric chiropractor
Children will typically experience virtually all of the same kinds of health problems and/or pains that an adult will undergo with spinal injury, weakness, or trauma. When there is stress on the nervous system, for instance, symptoms can include:
- ear infections
- sinus problems
- poor concentration
- stomach pains
- scoliosis and other types of spinal deformities
- poor posture
- poor athletic performance
- poor coordination and or balance.
Chiropractic care for children
After a thorough examination
One of the main differences between chiropractic care for children and for adults is that much less force is needed to bring about realignment and positive results with children. This calls for great dexterity on the part of a skilled chiropractor, and that’s exactly the type of treatment that is delivered by Dr. Kilby at Thrive Family Chiropractic. With very gentle spinal adjustments, many of the issues troubling young children can be completely eliminated, so they can go on to develop normally and experience a strong, healthy body for life!
