When to Try Pediatric Chiropractic Care in Matthews

Many parents worry about exposing their children to medication. If you want to protect your child’s health, yet do not want to turn to drugs to solve every problem, let our Matthews chiropractor keep your child well using the same proven strategies we use to promote your wellness. We can solve childhood ailments including:

  • Birth trauma – This is key! All children are born with trauma inherited during the birthing process, which they experience as painful. if birth trauma is not fixed it can lead to lifelong musculoskeletal problems.
  • Sleeping problems – Children often sleep poorly due to neck and back pain. Yet they don’t have the vocabulary to tell us what’s wrong. Our chiropractor makes gentle adjustments to restore the spinal integrity and help your child sleep.
  • Asthma – Along with lifestyle changes, chiropractic adjustments can reduce asthma symptoms in children.
  • Allergies – By decreasing interference along the spinal column, pediatric adjustments strengthen the nervous system, so your child’s body can fight off the allergic response.
  • Ear infections and ear tube surgeries – By realigning the neck and removing subluxations in the spine, we help the ear drain fluids. We can heal ear infections and prevent the chronic, recurring ear infections that lead conventional doctors to recommend ear tubes.
  • Colic – By soothing the nervous system and boosting immune health, we reduce the frequency of childhood illnesses, like colic.
  • Growing pains – As your child grows, he or she will experience growing pain in the bones, ligaments, and joints. Chiropractic gently stretches the growing area, relieving pressure and inflammation so your child feels better.
