Pediatric Care

Chiropractic is extremely important for a child’s overall well-being. It is a safe and very effective way of removing an interference that may be affecting the overall function of your child’s nervous system.

Dr. Martin and Dr. Painter use a very gentle technique to adjust their younger patients because kids’ bones are still forming so they need a light touch when they are being adjusted. Once a child’s spine is in its correct alignment, their metabolism and ability to heal are able to function at its full capacity.

Chiropractic care for infants and children is critical for a child to grow, learn and develop properly. Parents routinely bring their children in for chiropractic care because it is a safe alternative to treating their children without medications. Throughout the first five years of your child’s life, his or her body will produce more neural pathways than it will at any other time. This is why it is vital for your child to receive chiropractic care to optimize this neural pathway production, so each child can achieve their full potential.

Your child’s body will respond to internal and external environmental stresses like germs, temperature changes, toxins, pollen and several other types of stresses he or she comes in contact with, much better with routine chiropractic care. Chiropractic care can free up your child’s nervous system from any spinal interference and will allow their immune system to function more effectively and efficiently.


Infants

You may be unaware, but the birth process is the number one trauma for children. In fact, here at Martin Chiropractic, we have had many parents bring their child in to see us on their way home from the hospital with their newborn.

By starting chiropractic care from the beginning of your child’s life, we can address any injuries or misalignments that may be a direct result of the birth process. The only way for parents to know if an injury has occurred from birth trauma is to bring them in for a chiropractic evaluation from Dr. Martin or Dr. Painter. Also, by beginning chiropractic care as a newborn, we give the child an opportunity for a lifetime of health and well-being.

Many parents don’t realize the numerous benefits chiropractic care can provide for their newborn. Those benefits include:

  • Latching Issues/Trouble Nursing
  • Sleep Issues
  • Constipation
  • Colic
  • General Fussiness
  • Ear Issues
  • Reflux

Toddlers, Young Children & Older Children

You will not usually be prompted to take your toddler or young child to the chiropractor because they are complaining of back or neck pain. Instead, they might present with other issues. In young children, chiropractic care has been known to help with the following issues:

  • Stomachache
  • Colds
  • Sore Throat
  • Ear Infection
  • Asthma
  • Bed Wetting
  • Fever
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Behavioral Problems
  • And So Much More!

Every child can benefit from routine chiropractic care. Even if your child never seems to have a health issue, minor traumas from falls, bumps, and bruises can eventually create pain or discomfort, or even more serious health issues in their teen or adult years. It is critical your child receives routine chiropractic care while he or she is growing up so you can give them the ability to live their healthiest, most functional life.

As older children participate in their life, chiropractic care could help them with the following issues:

  • Scoliosis
  • Text Neck
  • Backpack Weight
  • Sinus Trouble
  • Allergies
  • And MORE

At Martin Chiropractic, we will adjust your child’s spine; as well as, give advice on how to provide your child’s with a nutritional, well-balanced diet.

Routine chiropractic maintenance will give your children a solid foundation for wellness. If you are interested in helping your child live their healthiest life, please do not hesitate to call us today to schedule an appointment for your child! (804) 215-8587
