Chiropractic Care for Babies and Children

Chiropractic Care for Headaches

You’re probably familiar with adults beginning chiropractic care to alleviate headaches, reduce back pain, or improve their digestive troubles. But it may surprise you to know that babies and kids can also benefit a great deal from chiropractic care. In fact, kids who get under chiropractic care at an early age are likely to have fewer issues growing up and later become healthier and more wellness-minded adults.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Kids

While kids are unlikely to have degenerative disc disease or years of spinal misalignments affecting their health, their spine can get easily jarred from a simple fall or bump. Since kids tend to be so rough and tumble, particularly in their clumsy toddler years and while playing sports during childhood, they experience many more spinal misalignments than most people realize. These can wreak havoc on a number of their bodies’ systems, causing dysfunction and problems from minuscule to life-altering. Here are just a few things that chiropractic care can help when it comes to your child:

  • Brain development
  • ADD/ADHD and behavior challenges
  • Sleeping difficulties
  • Colic
  • Scoliosis
  • Digestive troubles
  • Headaches
  • Anxiety
  • Developmental and/or speech delays
  • Asthma
  • Seizures 
  • Tourette’s and tics
  • Immune health
  • Ear Infections

Chiropractic can bring about solutions for these ailments and difficulties, allowing your child to experience relief from challenging symptoms and issues. While traditional medicine certainly has its place in today’s world, many of the issues listed above are more successfully treated with natural options like chiropractic, paired with lifestyle changes and improved overall wellness. 

Safe and Effective Pediatric Chiropractic Care

Although chiropractic adjustments make some people nervous, the way that Dr. Cary Gentry adjusts practice members in his office is incredibly safe and gentle. He uses a technique called Torque Release Technique, or TRT. It utilizes a small instrument that puts gentle pressure on a specific area, and then releases the pressure which allows neural impulses to restore proper function to the area. There is no twisting or popping or cracking, and each adjustment uses the least amount of pressure possible so that your little ones are completely comfortable. 

Chiropractic care has been utilized for healing for a very long time, and children have been reaping the benefits of it for just as long. Countless case studies have shown the efficacy of chiropractic for children suffering from many of the issues listed above, and they all find healing and relief without harmful side-effects or scary risks of medication. Instead, Bozeman chiropractic care at Waypoint Chiropractic gets to the root cause of the issue, which is the function of the central nervous system, and it brings about healing from the inside out. 

If your child is struggling with a common childhood issue or simply needs improvement in his or her health and wellness, we encourage you to schedule an appointment at Waypoint Chiropractic in Bozeman. Dr. Cary Gentry is a certified pediatric chiropractor in Montana and is the only Proficiency certified TRT doctor in the entire state.
