Here at Churn Creek Chiropractic, we like to emphasize the value of chiropractic care, not only for treating a wide range of physical problems, but also for optimizing the health and wellness of individuals of all ages. In fact, our ability help your family begins even before birth, in the form of our prenatal chiropractic services. It then continues throughout childhood thanks to our safe, effective pediatric chiropractic care in Redding.

Children Benefit from Chiropractic Adjustments

It’s hard to imagine a toddler with bad back or a kindergartner suffering from sciatica, so you might wonder why we would endorse chiropractic for young patients. Children sustain their share of musculoskeletal complaints. Even newborns can have spinal alignment errors or other joint problems which they sustained during the passage through the birth canal. Their little bodies will encounter a variety of other strains and bumps as they start exploring their world and building their physical coordination through trial and error. School sports, daily backpack use, and the possible advent of scoliosis can throw additional challenges at growing kids.

All of these stresses and strains can affect your child’s musculoskeletal and neurological health. Impaired nerve function can affect growth and development in any number of ways. It can also make your child more vulnerable to a variety of common pediatric illnesses, from ear infections and colic to ADHD.

Chiropractic adjustment can minimize the impact of these issues on your child’s life. Even in infants, this healing modality is extremely gentle and entirely safe, as performed by our Redding chiropractors, Dr. Hutchings or Dr. Edwards. Correcting imbalances as early in life as possible sets the stage for optimal development during those first crucial years. Periodic screenings and adjustments as needed can help your child steer clear of preventable infections, illnesses, injuries, and neurological issues.

The Safe, Natural Path to a Healthy Childhood

Is your child’s body ready for a new school year? You can make sure of it by scheduling annual back-to-school chiropractic checkups at our clinic. We can ready your young athlete for school sports, give helpful tips about backpack safety and posture, and check your child for signs of scoliosis so you’ll know whether you need to think about treatment for spinal abnormalities. Meanwhile, your child will become comfortable with chiropractic treatment and learn good health practices.
