Pediatric Chiropractic Care at Shapiro Family
Chiropractic & Wellness Center
People don't commonly associate chiropractic adjustments with apparently-healthy kids, but they should. Musculoskeletal and neurological disorders stemming from alignment problems can afflict anyone at any age, including newborn infants. These issues may interfere with normal development and create ever-worsening symptoms without the proper chiropractic care. Here at Shapiro Family Chiropractic & Wellness Center, we can provide a lifetime of wellness evaluations and all-natural treatments to help your little ones thrive in Hendersonville and Gallatin, TN.
How Children Benefit from Chiropractic Care
The trip through the birth canal is not an easy one, which explains why many newborns display spinal alignment or extremity joint issues from their first moments outside the womb. Even if these problems don't display any obvious external symptoms, subtle, but significant, alignment errors that affect body symmetry can also end up affecting balance and coordination as your baby learns to crawl, walk, and perform manual tasks. These same alignments can also compress nerve tissue, impeding the normal flow of nerve signals so important for growth, development, and overall physical function.
Growing children can also inflict numerous little bumps and jars to themselves as they learn to get around and explore their world. These little "owies" can add up to produce postural and spinal problems. Kids who haul heavy backpacks to school or participate in high-impact school sports face increased risks of musculoskeletal aches, pains, and injuries. These problems may be compounded by scoliosis, a spinal curvature abnormality that strikes some children as they approach their teenage years.
Gentle, Safe Treatment from Our Chiropractor
Our chiropractor, Dr. Corey Shapiro, knows how to evaluate and adjust children safely, gently, and comfortably. Even babies can benefit from early-life examinations that pinpoint alignment errors in time to administer early corrective care. Regularly-scheduled chiropractic wellness exams can catch additional issues as they develop. These preventative measures help to ensure that your children have the best possible chance to grow and develop normally.
Our services will continue to prove valuable as your kids grow older and start school. We can show your kids how to load and wear their backpacks safely, examine their musculoskeletal alignment before each sports season, and diagnose scoliosis in time to guide you toward any recommended treatment measures or specialists.
