Pediatric Q&A

How is chiropractic care used in pediatrics?

The Alderwood Back & Neck Pain Clinic team uses chiropractic adjustments to ensure proper vertebral alignment in the spine. This enhances a child’s nervous system function and supports the growing musculoskeletal system.

Pediatric chiropractic care can also:

  • Relieve colic
  • Treat digestive problems
  • Reduce ear infection pain
  • Aid in developmental milestones
  • Prevent sports injuries
  • Address text neck and screen-related posture issues

Children and infants can safely receive chiropractic care, providing a drug-free option to support health and wellness. It’s essential to consult an experienced pediatric chiropractor to ensure your child receives the effective, personalized care they need.

What chiropractic techniques are suitable for pediatric patients?

Pediatric chiropractic care must be gentle and accurate to prevent damaging the developing body. Techniques the Alderwood Back & Neck Pain Clinic team uses include:

Hands-on adjustments

Light, precise adjustments are best for children. Your chiropractor uses their hands to make quick, gentle thrusts that ensure a comfortable experience.

Instrument-assisted adjustments

Specialized chiropractic instruments deliver precise, low-force spinal realignments.

Cranial sacral therapy

Cranial sacral therapy involves subtle movements to the skull’s cranial bones, sacrum, and surrounding membranes. It promotes cerebrospinal fluid flow, benefitting the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord).

Soft tissue techniques

Soft tissue techniques include myofascial release and trigger point therapy. These treatments reduce muscle tension and pain, making them especially useful for physically active children.

Chiropractic care uses a holistic approach that considers a person’s whole body. The Alderwood Back & Neck Pain Clinic team offers advice like nutritional counseling to support healthy musculoskeletal growth and development.

They also provide parents with information on maintaining spinal health and the benefits of regular chiropractic check-ups for children.
