Chiropractic Care for Children

Many people think that chiropractors treat only adults. But children can also benefit from regular chiropractic care. Injuries that children receive during their everyday lives and while playing sports can cause many symptoms that can be treated by chiropractors. This includes soreness, discomfort, stiffness or neck pain.

Pediatric chiropractors — those that are trained to work with children — always adapt the treatment to fit the special needs of their young patients. They also provide highly skilled treatments that are very gentle.

Why Chiropractic Care for Children

Children may experience trauma at birth that affects their body. Later childhood activities — like learning to walk, participating in sports or riding a bicycle — can also cause spinal health problems, or make them worse.

Even injuries that appear to be minor — such as a fall off a bicycle — can damage other parts of the body, such as the pelvis, skull, spine and limbs. Chiropractors are uniquely trained to identify problems in these areas.

Chiropractors can also determine whether “growing pains” are signs of more severe health problems. Regular chiropractic care for children may be able to head off problems that many adults experience later in life.

Treating Childhood Conditions

One of the main types of chiropractic care for children is treating back and neck pain or other issues related to the spine. Chiropractors can check children as young as newborns for problems, especially those related to the health of their spine.

Chiropractors may also be able to help with other childhood conditions, such as:

  • Asthma
  • Bedwetting
  • Chronic ear infections
  • Colic
  • Difficulty nursing

Types of Treatment for Children

When chiropractors work with children, they provide the same highly skilled treatments that adults receive. They use a hands-on, drug-free approach. Visits include a physical exam, diagnosis and treatment. In the case of children, chiropractors use a very gentle approach, suitable to the age of the child.

Children who already have a regular pediatrician — who provides medications and treats serious illnesses — can also benefit from a pediatric chiropractor. Much of the work that chiropractors do with children is preventative wellness care, such as helping their spine stay healthy as they grow.

Chiropractors are for all ages. Contact your chiropractor to learn more about chiropractic care for your child.

  • "Dr. Brittney has been a mentor of mine as I went through chiropractic school. She loves her patients and wants nothing less than the absolute best for them. I am so excited to see her blossom in her own pediatric and prenatal focused office. If you're in Lincoln, bring your whole family in to see her and see how your family can be healthier without the use of drugs."
    Tiffany W.
  • "I started seeing Brittney with my first pregnancy. I had some low back pain when sitting up or down off the floor. She knew exactly what to do, and I don't know how I would have made it through my pregnancy without her. She also helps relieve tightness and knots in my neck and shoulders. **one last thing, she helped round out my baby's head. It was flat on one side. It was a very gently technique. Strongly recommend her!"
