Benefits of Pediatric Chiropractic in Hillsboro

Adults aren’t the only ones who can benefit from chiropractic services. In fact, recent studies have proven the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic care for children. At WellCore Health and Chiropractic, we are proud to offer chiropractic treatments for children.
Like adult pediatric care, pediatric chiropractic care has numerous benefits. Parents of children who have undergone chiropractic treatments report numerous unexpected benefits, including:

  • Improved attitude and behavior

  • Improved sleeping habits

  • Improved immune system function

It is common for adult spinal problems to begin early in life. In fact, some can be traced all the way back to a child’s birth. Natural birthing methods sometimes place stress on the baby’s spine and nervous system. Spinal and cranial misalignment that occurs during birth irritates the nervous system and can contribute to numerous health problems common among newborns, like breathing issues, colic, allergic reactions and chronic infections, just to name a few.

As your child’s nervous system is developing, routine chiropractic adjustments can help promote his or her mental, physical and even emotional well-being.

Chiropractic Care for Childhood Injuries

As your child grows and starts participating in normal childhood activities like riding a bike or playing sports, small misalignments sometimes occur. When these seemingly minor issues are not addressed, they sometimes lead to more serious issues down the road. Injuries that are small during childhood can become larger problems as the child rapidly grows.

With regular Hillsboro chiropractic care, minor spinal injuries can be identified, and the chiropractor can correct the problem. In many instances, this allows the child to avoid related problems in adulthood.
