Pediatric Chiropractic Care in Contoocook

Boy on swing smilingWhen it comes to children, most people think, “Why would they need a chiropractor? They’re not in pain.” What you may not realize is that a child who is active and happy may still have misalignments in their spine. Though you don’t think they cause problems now, it could be a possible reason they have developed a particular symptom, which may certainly become an issue in the future.

At Aurora Chiropractic Health Center, we welcome all ages, from infants to adults.

A Quick Response

Everyone receives a postural assessment on their first visit with us. In children, we often see a tilted head, high shoulder or hip or a foot that is turned inward or outward. These signs indicate the presence of vertebral subluxations, and loss of normal alignment in the spine. Chiropractic adjustments correct vertebral subluxations, and restore normal spinal alignment. With chiropractic care, unhealthy alignment patterns in the spine, which may lead to problems in the future, are corrected, and not permitted to set in.

Typically, the vertebral subluxation hasn’t been present for long. That means your child can achieve an easy, quick correction. We love seeing how quickly children respond and rebound after receiving care.

Children can experience the same benefits from chiropractic that adults do. With a better-aligned spine, they can stand straighter and taller, and their nerve system can function optimally – without interference. We may see an improvement in problems such as allergies and asthma. They won’t have to rely on medications like antibiotics. Whether you’re 2 or 82, chiropractic is a great choice to make for your health!

The medical model often turns to antibiotics to address common childhood problems such as ear infections. The problem with these antibiotics is that, although they may kill the infection, they also kill all of the beneficial bacteria in the digestive system, also known as the “intestinal flora”. These “good” bacteria play a vital role in keeping us healthy, and their absence may result in significant decreases in levels of health.

With chiropractic care, we strengthen your child’s immune system so that they don’t get sick as often. Their energy, outlook and frame of mind improves so that they remain happy and healthy.

Your child might feel unsure about getting adjusted. If so, know that we will talk your child through it and make them feel comfortable. A very low amount of force is required for children’s adjustments. Children often feel very secure lying on their Mom or Dad’s chest & belly while getting adjusted. Once they experience chiropractic, they’ll think it’s fun and want to visit us again.
