A chiropractic examination which includes a neurodevelopmental examination is able to determine if the condition your child is experiencing is due to a spinal strain and nervous system malfunction or another cause. The initial examination will include a full history, examination of the heart, lungs, and abdominal structures, neurological, orthopaedic and spinal examination.
If indicated a gentle adjustment is given, equal to the force which used when testing a ripe tomato. This adjustment helps to remove any interference to the nervous system which in turn allows the body to restore normal function. Alternatively an adjustment may be a very fast but light thrust over a specific body part. Adjustments are modified to the individual whether they are young or old, to the individuals size and spinal problem. Adjustments on infants and children are much different to those used on adults. Cranial work may also be used if appropriate.
Many parents often see fast improvements!
Beware that aches and pains at any age may not simply be growing pains but a sign that something isn’t right and that the spine and nervous system may be involved. If you have any concerns concerning your child and chiropractic care please do not hesitate to contact us.
