The chiropractor has an important role in providing care to infants, children and adolescents for neuromusculoskeletal conditions that fall within the scope of chiropractic practice, as well as providing a conservative, natural approach to body mechanics, posture and function.
Like adults, children and teens can also experience musculoskeletal pain and injuries to the back, neck, knees, shoulders and other components of the musculoskeletal system. The assessment and technique used to manage these issues are similar to those of adults, but gentler and adjusted to the body and age of the patient based on development.
Depending on the symptoms, treatment can include gentle mobilizations or manipulation, soft tissue therapy, exercise, postural correction and lifestyle counselling.
When a child’s body is working to the best of its ability, you have peak performance. Pediatric adjustments help decrease the risk for injury by promoting balance, coordination and symmetry within the body.
Dr Natasha Hayden is a pediatric and prenatal chiropractor that is passionate about helping her community discover just how good their bodies are designed to feel, so they can do more of what they love.
