Pediatric Chiropractic Care in Racine WI

chiropractor sees children for wellness chiropractic care

Have you considered chiropractic for your kids in Racine WI? At Pediatric, Prenatal and Family Chiropractic of Wisconsin we firmly believe in protecting a child’s body by making sure they have the best possible functioning nervous system. It is well known that children bounce back quickly, but that is related to how they feel; physically and structurally that is not always the case. Unfortunately, children do not always verbalize exactly what they feel when they are sore, uncomfortable, or in pain, but just like with adults, if the underlying cause is left alone for too long it will grow into a bigger problem. Chiropractic care for children can be very beneficial.

Starting from the time a child is conceived, their bodies are growing and being put under stress. While the child is growing, they are usually curled up in a ball, and then they are pushed and/or pulled during birth. I just ask that you just take a second and think about how you would feel if today you underwent that kind of experience. All of this stress and trauma affects our spine which can lead to issues with the nervous system. This is a problem because the nervous system is what controls everything our body does such as blinking, breathing, heartbeat, the ability to fight illness, walk, talk, think, speak, etc.

Chiropractic Care For Kids In Racine WI

Chiropractic care can be helpful for your child's development. After development and birth, the physical stress and trauma continue when children grow into toddlers. They are faced with the developmental challenge of crawling and walking. While children are learning to overcome these challenges, there is a significant about of straining, twisting, and falling. While growth continues and the child starts to be at the age where they play with pets, friends, family, etc. they can again endure more physical stress and trauma. Generally, children in the preschool-middle school age play hard and try to play without limits.

As toddlers grow into kids, they often start to develop bad posture, start playing contact sports, wear heavier backpacks (most likely the wrong way), and deal with the stress of more daily responsibilities. As these kids start to become teenagers and high school graduates, they often become part of the workforce. Usually, they are jobs that require a lot of moving around and physical labor such as servers, factory workers, etc.

At Pediatric, Prenatal and Family Chiropractic of Wisconsin, we make a point to make sure that all the falls, stress, trauma, and physical demands that your children endure do not stop them from being kids.
