A child's nervous system is the controller and regulator of all the other systems in their growing body. From blood flow, to brain function and growth, the nervous system plays a central role in keeping things working and healthy. Stress and misalignment of the spine can not only cause pain and postural issues such as scoliosis, but it can also seriously impact your child's overall health. These challenges can affect behavior as well as the development of the body and BRAIN. Better Health Chiropractic offers gentle and non-invasive therapy that works to correct underlying issues. Chiropractic care can improve or prevent further development of health issues in a child’s developing body and brain.
Pediatric Chiropractic in Rocklin
Prenatal and Postpartum Care
Dr. Abate, D.C .is knowledgeable and experienced in preconception, perinatal, and postpartum care. This enables her to address mothers’ to be, following birth and infantile concerns.
Children in this age group can be suffering tongue/lip tie, metabolic issues such as MTHFR, nursing /digestive conditions such as colic, reflux, constipation, and diarrhea as well as immune issues such as ear infections.
As a pediatric chiropractor, Dr. Abate treats children of all ages-premature infants through teens. Pediatric issues of posture, injury, pain, immune dysfunction (eczema, asthma, allergy), sensory processing, behavior/mood, and academic issues are some of the more common reasons children consult our chiropractic office for health and wellness and what we call “brain-based” care and not pain care. Children today are growing up in a more complex generation-packed schedule, digital devices, social media, and declining food quality that stresses their bodies and nervous systems more than their parents’ or any other generation. If the brain and body become overwhelmed, the nervous system of the child can become stuck in fight/flight response which impacts physical, emotional, and academic development for that child continuing into adulthood.
HOW CAN I TELL IF MY CHILD NEEDS CHIROPRACTIC CARE?
The spine is not just bones, muscles, and ligaments. It is a neurological organ that connects the brain and body. The spinal cord which is protected by the spinal bones and spinal nerves are the communication between the brain and body and provides the ability to adapt. Only 2 of the 9 fibers forming a spinal nerve are dedicated to pain, the remainder control muscles, blood flow, and touch or positional sense. A child's spine can be misaligned without any awareness of pain or discomfort. Even when a child is experiencing pain, they may not be able to communicate and it can be expressed as grumpiness, acting out, or incessant crying. Issues with the spine can also be the source of many other childhood concerns. Your pediatric chiropractor can identify a subtle chronic issue that might be developing.
WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR KIDS?
A chiropractic treatment for a child begins with an examination to determine the exact issue and the best route for treatment. Even if your child is too young to communicate, or too shy, Dr. Abate D.C., has the skills to work with your child to determine the exact nature of the concern before proceeding with treatment. Gentle and non-invasive adjustments and appropriate physio or neurological therapy is prescribed, including our sensory gym experience. Children will often become relaxed and even fall asleep following treatment. If you are concerned about your child's spinal health, or other neurological developmental concern, contact our certified pediatric chiropractor, Dr. Abate D.C., at Better Health Chiropractic, to arrange a consultation today.
