Chiropractic Care for Children in Woodbridge, VA
At Palmercare, we use light chiropractic adjustments to treat many of the common health issues experienced by infants, children, and teens, including:
- Sleep difficulties
- Behavioral problems
- Immune system function issues
- Chronic ear infections
- Digestive issues
You might be surprised to learn that these conditions can often be traced back to the physical trauma of birth. A typical vaginal birth can place up to 90 pounds of pressure on a newborn’s head. There’s even more pressure involved in a c-section birth.
The effects of this pressure can have long-term physical consequences like cranial issues, spinal adhesions, and injuries to the head, neck, and spinal canal. Chiropractic adjustments can be used to correct these structural issues and, in turn, treat the childhood health conditions they cause without having to resort to prescription medication.
Your child’s appointment at Palmercare starts with an evaluation of the spine to look at its alignment and check for subluxations. We use our hands to make gentle spinal adjustments that restore alignment and remove the subluxations that are blocking nerve flow. The result is a healthier nervous system that can begin to heal the body from within.
