Pediatric Adjustments Provided by Our Altamonte Springs, FL, Chiropractor
You've probably heard firsthand from adults that they feel completely out-of-whack when they haven't been to the chiropractor in a while. You may even be one of these people. Did you know that your child may benefit from chiropractic care as well? At Beyond Medical, serving Altamonte Springs, FL, and the nearby region, we provide care for children, offering pediatric alignments.
A pediatric chiropractic adjustment serves the purpose of realigning the spine and optimizing nervous system function.
During an adjustment, our chiropractor and nurse practitioner will ask your child to lie on his stomach while our practitioner performs manual maneuvers to readjust your child’s spine. This treatment is gentle, and we make it as comfortable for your child as possible.
Benefits of Pediatric Chiropractic Care
While adults may seek out chiropractic care for back or neck pain, pediatric adjustments have different benefits, such as improving a child's sleep by optimizing his nervous system function. For children who have disorders, like autism or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), chiropractic care can improve nervous system function and help ease the symptoms as well. You may also bring your child to see our pediatric chiropractor if they have any of the following:
- Digestive issues
- Sinus congestion
- Acid reflux
- Recurring earaches
Pediatric chiropractic adjustments can help boost a child's immune system, reducing the number of sick days he experiences and can reduce his risk for injury.
First and foremost, pediatric adjustments don't come with all the cracking and popping of an adult's adjustment. Children's spines require a lot less force to be adjusted.
As a family chiropractor offering integrative health care to all ages, our top priority is the safety and well-being of all of our patients, including our little ones. With that being said, we make sure before we perform any treatment that our practitioner thoroughly reviews your child's medical history and performs a physical assessment to ensure chiropractic care is safe for him.
Side effects from chiropractic adjustments, in general, are usually mild. This is especially the case for children. Any side effects will subside within a few days.
