Chiropractic Care for Kids in Gray ME

chiropractor sees children for wellness chiropractic care

Our Gray ME chiropractic clinic offers gentle chiropractic care for children. It may be difficult to imagine that a child would need chiropractic care. They seldom complain of chronic pain the way adults do and their bodies appear to be made of rubber in the way they bounce back from injury. The truth is, children's bodies are under a lot of stress while they are in a state of development, and keeping them healthy requires maintenance. A child's nervous system is the controller and regulator of all the other systems in their growing body. Stress on the spine can impact your child’s overall health, behavior, and development.

Stress & Trauma To The Body May Begin At Birth

Stress and trauma to the body and spine may begin with the birthing process. Infant spines undergo intense pressure in both natural and Cesarean births. Throughout infancy, they may sleep in awkward positions and occasionally take a tumble. As toddlers they strain, twist, and fall, while learning to crawl and walk. But they may not be able to tell you they are in pain and it can come across as grumpiness, acting out, or incessant crying.

As kids, they may develop bad posture from sitting in front of a computer or TV. Playing contact sports, wearing heavy backpacks and even sitting in desks can all cause issues. As teenagers, they become part of the workforce, and use their bodies to perform physical labor such as painting houses and serving tables.

Children Are Resilient In Gray ME

As you can see, there are plenty of opportunities throughout development for a child's body, and particularly their spine, to develop problems that will affect other aspects of their healthy nervous system function and development. Luckily they are very resilient and can take a lot of impacts but we are here for them when they need it. Most kids enjoy the feeling of getting adjusted, just like adults. If you are concerned about your child's spinal health, call us at Gray Chiropractic Center to set up a visit.
