Chiropractic Care for Children in Alexandria, VA
Our chiropractors use gentle chiropractic care to address a number of common childhood issues and disorders. These include:
- Sleep difficulties
- Behavioral problems
- Immune system function issues
- Chronic ear infections
- Digestive issues
For children, the birth process itself is a significant physical trauma that has lingering effects even as they grow older. Studies estimate that there is up to 90 pounds of pressure on a baby’s head and neck during a vaginal birth and even more pressure with a Caesarian section.
Birth trauma can lead to spinal adhesions, cranial issues, and injuries to the head, neck and spinal canal. If this trauma is not resolved, it can cause a number of symptoms, some of which may require newborns and infants to take prescription medication.
With chiropractic adjustments, we can resolve the underlying cause of these symptoms and help you avoid needing medication for your child. Chiropractic care is safe for even the littlest patients, including newborns. We assess your child’s spine and provide light adjustments with our hands or a small tool. These adjustments help restore normal movement and nervous system function. Once interference to the nervous system is removed, the body can begin to heal itself.
