Children Chiropractic Care

At Lyn Lake Chiropractic, we recognize that children often have a need for children chiropractic care. While resilient and quick to heal, children are subjected to numerous factors that can result in injury and illness. The very events of birth and infancy can represent most of our earliest trauma to the spine and nervous system. Toddlers, faced with the challenges of learning to crawl and walk are constantly straining and falling. Preschool and elementary aged children play relentlessly hard and do not always exercise the best judgment concerning risk. Older children often develop poor posture, engage in physically demanding sports and are faced with ever increasing workloads at school. Late teens and graduates are often starting their first jobs and are not work hardened to all the physical and mentally fatiguing demands of the work force.

In our Chiropractic Clinic, we treat children and family members of all ages. As parents ourselves, we want the best for your children as for our own. We believe childhood should be free of pain, discomfort and distress as possible. Chiropractic care offers conservative treatment for a host of problems for even the youngest of children. Chiropractic care in our office begins with a complete history and physical examination irregardless of the age of the patient. For those children still too young to communicate their distress, Our Chiropractors will thoroughly explore the history of the child's condition with you as the parent. Only after a careful examination, a detailed explanation of your child's condition and having obtained your consent as a parent will age appropriate treatment begin children's chiropractic care.

Children and Chiropractic Care - Colic

Colic is a condition in young infants characterized by an unusual amount of crying. When they cry, they may draw their arms and legs toward their bodies as though they are in pain and may even turn bright red. Colic usually appears between the 3rd and 6th week after birth and is typically resolved by the time they are 3 months old. Although no one is certain what causes colic, there are a number of things that likely contribute, such as an immature and irritated nervous system, food sensitivites and gastrointestinal upset.

The theory that an irritated spine may contribute to colic is supported by the frequent improvement in symptoms with gentle chiropractic adjustments. Because the birthing process is very stressful on the neck of a newborn, it is very common for there to be several subluxations in the neck and back that can irritate the tiny and delicate nervous system. It has also been observed that babies with colic seem to need more attention and are more sensitive to the things around them than other babies - again indicating that there are some neurological differences.
